The couple that was found dead in their home in Jerusalem's Armon Hanatziv on Sunday was murdered, investigations revealed on Monday.
Yehuda, 71, and his wife Tamar, 67, had not been seen since Thursday, leading rescue forces to break into their house on Sunday to find their bodies showing signs of violence.
"The incident is being investigated from all angles," said Jerusalem District Chief Superintendent Shimi Marciano, adding that "the Jerusalem District is using all the means at our disposal and all the laboratories to reach the murderers."
Ada Bardanov, a friend of Tamar, said that one of her last signs of life was making her laugh on Facebook.
"During one of the conversations, she told me that the family members had become religious and she remained a secular, which was very difficult for her. I'm shocked. I lost a good friend," said Bardanov to Israel Radio on Thursday morning. This report was translated from Maariv by Cassandra Gomes-Hochberg.
