Amos Burns passed away on Saturday morning at Western Galilee Hospital, the government hospital in Nahariya. He was 67 years old.

Burns was convicted of murdering Rachel Heller and sentenced to life in prison in 1976. He appealed the conviction and was released eight and a half years into his sentence after it was found that police provided false testimony in his trial.

A rally will be held in his memory in Narahiya Saturday night.
