Police officials announced Thursday that they have solved the case of a murdered Polish tourist whose body was discovered in woods near Nazareth last month.

Police say Cotchiba Attian, a 21-year-old resident of Jericho, had killed the young female tourist after he followed her back to her hotel when she disembarked from her 40-person tour group.

Police claim that Attian tried to kiss and touch the young female tourist, who fled away from his advances. Having panicked, Police say that Attian murdered the tourist out of fear of her telling the authorities.
