After launching a preliminary investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death, police began to suspect that his partner, who called to report that she had discovered his body, may have been responsible for the murder.
According to the initial findings, the body was in the apartment for a few hours after the murder took place in the afternoon.
The suspect, a 45-year-old woman, called the police at 9:20pm, informing them that she had discovered his body.
Arriving at the chilling scene to find the bloodstained body, it became apparent to the officers that the woman was intoxicated. She was subsequently arrested and taken in for investigation.
The neighborhood’s community manager Yehudah Ben Joseph said that initially, there was a fear that the stabbing had been nationalistically motivated.
“We know that it is actually a criminal background and not national. This is a sad story. Even the smallest thing shocks the residents,” he said.
