Police suspect foul play after an Ariel woman was found Tuesday dead in an apartment in the West Bank city with signs of violence on her body.

Firefighters found the woman Tuesday morning after bursting into the apartment following a complaint by neighbors of a powerful odor emanating from the residence.

Police said the apartment is owned by the parents of the victim. At the moment, crime scene investigators are working to determine the cause of death, but all signs indicate murder, police say.

On Monday in Tel Aviv, a local man killed his partner on a sidewalk in the city, crushing her skull with a rock before he was held by passersby. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, and the suspect confessed and reenacted the crime later the same day, Tel Aviv police said.
