Suspect in girl's murder continues to deny allegations

Roman Zadorov, who police believe murdered Katzrin teen Tair Rada three weeks ago, says he was pressured to reconstruct crime

Roman Zadorov, who is suspected of murdering teenage girl Tair Rada in her school in Katzrin, continued to deny any involvement in the murder.


During a remand hearing Friday, Zadorov said, "I wish to state that everything that has been said about me is nonsense. This girl did not tell me, 'Give me a cigarette'… I did not murder her, and I reconstructed the murder because I was pressured to do so."


It recently became known that a DNA sample taken from Zadorov was sent to the United States, after a test performed in Israel yielded inconclusive results.


A police official of the Northern District told Ynet that "as far as we're concerned Roman Zadorov is the suspect and has been arrested following his admission to the crime, which he also reconstructed."


Tair Rada was murdered nearly three weeks ago at the bathroom of the Nofei Golan School in the Golan Heights town of Katzrin.


An investigation of the murder eventually led to the arrest of Zadorov, 29, a resident of the town, married with one son, who has worked as a construction worker on the school's grounds.
