A 24-year-old Iranian Jew, who was part of one of the wealthiest Jewish families in the Iranian Jewish community, was murdered last week as reported by Israeli Channel 2. The Iranian Jewish community is fuming.

His name was Daniel Magrufta, the son of a well-known businessman. He was dating the non-Jewish daughter of a member of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.

Channel 2 reported that Jewish community suspects that she was involved in the murder, but she was released without any charges being brought against her.

According to the Jewish community in Iran, the investigators reportedly told her that “if you were involved in killing a Jew, you did a good deed.”

His funeral was held last Sunday at the Yusuf Abad Synagogue in Tehran.

Less than a month ago, a Jewish woman was murdered.
