Police forensic inspectors said that evidence at the scene indicates suicide and not foul play.

The victim recently joined the security company where her boyfriend worked. He was detained for interrogation on Wednesday morning.

A social worker of the Kiryat Ata municipality arrived at the scene and treated the bereaved mother, who was then taken to the city's welfare department for further care.

Apart from suicide and murder, police also considered the possibility that the woman may have been killed by a stray bullet when her boyfriend was handling his gun.
