Police received the initial findings from the autopsy of Yonatan Alzam on Thursday morning; Alzam died mysteriously in his prison cell the night before he was to testify in the murder trial of Shimon Zrihan.
The preliminary results stated that Alzam died an "unnatural death," with police leaning toward poison as the specific cause of death.
However, they have yet to officially rule out a natural cause of death.
Chief Superintendent Micha Levy from the Central Investigative Unit in the Central District is leading the police team set up to probe the death.
