The badly decomposed bodies of a women and her son were found in an apartment on Tel-Aviv's Ben-Yehuda street on Wednesday.
Police burst into the apartment Wednesday after the owner of a nearby restaurant reported smelling the decomposing bodies of the 87-year-old woman and her 64-year-old son.
Police said Wednesday that both people lived in the apartment, where on Wednesday evening a mobile crime scene unit was called in order to determine the cause of death. Police currently suspect that the son murdered his mother and then committed suicide, but are also exploring other possibilities.
The investigation into the circumstances of the deaths is being lead by the Lev police station in Tel Aviv.
