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.
