Or Felician, the 15-year-old brother of Bar Noar murder suspect Hagai Felician fell to his death from a nine-story building in Bnei Brak on Wednesday, in what police are investigating as an accidental fall.

Felician was at the building working with his father, who runs a cleaning business.

The tragedy was the latest public event for the star-crossed family.

On Monday Or’s brother Hagai was indicted for the murder of two people and wounding of 11 at the Bar Noar LGBT center in Tel Aviv on August 1, 2009. Hagai allegedly carried out the shooting to avenge the sexual assault of his younger brother, who himself was arrested in the case before being released, yet still faces charges for allegedly attempting to order a pistol to attack a criminal rival.

The eldest Felician brother, Ya’acov, was released to house arrest in late June after he was arrested for allegedly raping a female attorney earlier in June.

Ya’acov, a known associate of the Avi Ruhan crime family, was released after he passed a lie detector test.

The family was famously touched by tragedy also back in 2009, when Ayal Salhov, the brother-in-law of the Felician brothers, was murdered. A former underworld figure, Salhov had become a police informant before his death. That murder remains unsolved.
