Police in Tel Aviv launched a massive manhunt late Thursday in search of a figure who is known on the Israeli music scene for allegedly murdering his one-time girlfriend.

The lifeless body of a 50-year-old woman was discovered in her south Tel Aviv apartment late Thursday, with police believing her to be the victim of murder at the hands of her male companion.

The woman's neighbors first alerted authorities when they discovered her body in the apartment. A Magen David Adom first-response unit pronounced her dead at the scene, according to Army Radio.
