A 19-year-old man from Kiryat Ata, north of Haifa, who is suspected of involvement in a lethal knife attack, turned himself in on Thursday, a day after police launched a Facebook appeal to members of the public that featured the suspect's photo, as well as the photo of a second suspect. 


Edelstein, 21, was stabbed to death outside of his home on August 30 during a fight with other youths. 


Edelstein's brother, Tzvika, was murdered by a neighbor ten years ago.
