Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court Judge Dorit Reich issued a gag order Sunday afternoon on all details pertaining to the investigation into the murder of Eyal Sahalov, 23, of Bnei Brak, whose body was discovered earlier in the day at a Petah Tikva construction site. Shortly after 11 a.m., police received a report that a body had been found not far from Route 4. Police forces were dispatched to the construction site, along with a mobile crime scene investigative laboratory. They found Saharov's body, with initial evidence suggesting that he had died from non-self-inflicted gunshot wounds. Police said that a missing persons report on Sahalov had been filed early Sunday morning, but would not say by whom. A special investigative team was formed to look into the killing, but the case was later turned over to the Central District's elite Central Investigative Unit, which specializes in dealing with complex cases, especially those related to organized crime.
