Anat Pliner, a Ramat Hasharon real-estate lawyer and mother of two, who was stabbed on her front doorstep Monday, was buried on Tuesday evening. A gag order has been placed on the investigation, although a police spokeswoman said they were still unsure of the motive for the attack on Pliner. The assailant knocked on the door, stabbed Pliner in the stomach and then fled. Pliner died in the ambulance on her way to the hospital, police said. Her children, a 12-year-old girl and a 10-year-old boy, have gone to stay with their father, who was separated from Pliner but lived in the area. Neighbor Nun Himmelman described Pliner as a "very vibrant and very happy" person with many friends, adding that she didn't believe the lawyer had been threatened because of her work. "The opposite was true. She was very satisfied with her work," Himmelman told Channel 2. "Her former husband, her boyfriend and myself don't know about anything [that could have led to the murder]." Himmelman said that the neighbors had not believed that Pliner's screams were made by somebody who was being attacked. "It seems the neighbors heard her screaming. They said it was like the howling of a dog, but they didn't believe that it came from the throat of a human being. They went back indoors," said Himmelman, who accompanied Pliner to the hospital. "I spoke to her in the ambulance but she didn't answer. The doctor said she was unconscious. I understood from the discussion between the doctor and the driver that they were losing her," she said.
