The case against Roman Zadorov, the construction worker charged with killing 13-year-old Ta'ir Rada in Katzrin nearly three months ago, seemed to gain steam on Monday as markings found on the murdered teenager's pants matched up exactly with Zadorov's footprint.
Galilee Police sources rejected claims that Zadorov was a victim of false accusations, insisting that "he is the real murderer," Army Radio reported.
Rada was found murdered last December in the bathroom of the Nofei Golan high school where she was a student.
Zadorov has confessed to the murder twice, but retracted his confession both times. DNA tests have thus far proven inconclusive.
