Senior police officer commits suicide 'because of terrible sights' seen on force


A senior police officer with Israel's Traffic Police was found dead in his home in central Israel. The officer, who was involved in investigating car crashes, killed himself with his personal firearm.


After he failed to show up for work and did not answer phone calls, two police officers came to his house and found him lying next to his gun. In addition, a letter was wound in which he explained that the terrible sights he saw as part of his work pushed him to suicide. (Eli Senyor)
