The suspects in the murder of Moises and Sapir Aruh are the two's driver and his nephew, according to Army Radio. According to suspicions, the family's driver was not content with the treatment he received from Aruh, and decided to take his life. Authorities are also investigating whether someone else called for the murder.
Moises, 60, and his daughter Sapir, 24, were found dead by a family member who broke down the door after nobody answered at the home for over a day.
There has been speculation in Israeli media that the killings were
somehow related to another of Aruh’s daughters, whose undercover police
work recently helped bring down an Israeli drug ring.
The double homicide came as a shock to Mexico City’s 40,000-strong
Jewish community, which is usually spared the worst manifestations of
the drug-related crime afflicting the country.
