Israel Police Insp.-Gen. Dudi Cohen on Monday said the brutal murder of the Oshrenko family last month, allegedly by Dimitri Olegovich Kirilik, was not indicative of the level of violence in Israeli society. "I do not think this is indicative. This is a single incident, and I do no believe we will see such cases in the near future. This is a single incident that isn't indicative of the level of violence in Israel," Cohen told reporters. "I do not recall a murder of three generations, that is why Israel Police appointed one its best units [to investigate the case]," the police chief said at a press conference. Earlier Monday, police revealed they had detained Kirilik on suspicion of murdering the six Oshrenko family members in their home in Rishon Lezion in October.
