Daniel Maoz, accused of murdering his parents in August of last year, kept one more firecracker up his sleeve for the defense’s closing arguments at the Jerusalem District Court on Monday: a note that threatened his life if he revealed his parents’ true murderer, which was mysteriously “lost” during the police investigation.

Maoz claimed that the note was slipped into his cell in October, a few weeks after he was arrested for stabbing his parents Noah and Nurit Moaz to death on August 14. He said he showed the note to prison wards, but they assumed it was fake and threw it away. On Monday, defense lawyer David Barhoom accused the prison services of “an incredible act of destruction of evidence,” because it is impossible to discern whether or not Moaz wrote the note.
