The man murdered in his Tel Aviv apartment on Wednesday has been named as 70-year-old French chemistry expert Dr. Eli Laluz.

Laluz was found with stab wounds in a burned out home on Dizengofff Street by emergency responders. He stated in the apartment during periodic visits to Israel.



Haifa mayor Yona Yahav knew Laluz personally, and told Maariv he was stunned by the homicide. "He was a very nice man, and I can't imagine who would want to hurt him," Yahav said

Police suspect the murderer or murderers set fire to the home to cover up evidence of the crime, but have not discussed possible motives yet.

Laluz earned his doctorate from the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot. The murder investigation continues under a gag order.
