Murder suspect attempts Kinneret getaway swim

A Tiberias man suspected of murdering his mother attempted to flee police officers by swimming away, the police said Sunday. The man first fled by car, but when he reached the Sea of Galilee beachfront, he left it and began swimming away.


The detectives chasing him followed him into the water, where a short struggle took place resulting in the man's arrest. The police further noted that the man had no previous police record and that the victim's husband is currently being deposed. (Maor Buchnik)
