Medical teams discovered the two badly-bruised bodies lying inside the apartment. The couple's 30-year-old son, who had called emergency services and was in the apartment when the medics arrived, was taken into questioning by investigators.

Police believe the act was of a criminal nature. The couple's son has been ruled out as a person of interest in the case. Much of the case is still under a gag order.
Hezi Rot, one of the paramedics called to the scene, described what he had seen inside the apartment: "A man and woman were lying in a pool of blood, about a meter and a half from each other.
"We tried to resuscitate them but we quickly realized we had nothing left to do but to pronounce them dead," he stated.
Noah Maoz was the manager of a dentist's clinic in Jerusalem, while Nurit Maoz was an executive with the Israeli Patent Office at the Justice Ministry.
They are survived by four children. One of their daughters is Tamar Maoz-Talmon, the former captain of Israel's national women's basketball team.
