The body of an unidentified woman was found in a garbage can in Ramat Gan in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Firefighters were called to the garbage can after it had been set on fire. When the flames were doused, they discovered the grizzly sight. Hundreds of Tel Aviv Police officers combed the quiet Ramat Gan neighborhood throughout the night and into the morning searching for clues that could lead to the killer.
A media ban has been placed on all details of the investigation.
Local residents said they were shocked and frightened after the discovery of the body. "I feel scared," Timor Lumelsky, a young man who resides close to where the body was found, told The Jerusalem Post.
"I was walking with my daughter here yesterday. Until the killer is caught, I won't feel safe in this area," said Orli Levy, who works in an office nearby.
An elderly woman described being woken up by police and feeling confused. "Police were knocking on doors asking questions. We're all frightened," she added.
Gideon Zamir, who owns a barber shop situated meters from where the body was found, described his shock when he found out that the body he had heard about on the radio was found next to his business. "When I got to the shop I saw police everywhere. Then I was told what happened," he said.
Referring to the recent murder of two-year-old Noa Goldring by her father, Zamir said, "If a father can choke his daughter to death, nothing surprises me."
