Murder of real estate firm-owner Eldad Perry solved

Israel Police has solved the October 15 murder of former real estate firm-head Eldad Perry in Rehovot, the police spokesperson announced on Monday.

The perpetrator was 64-year-old Daniel Keidar from Rishon Letziyon, who has been under arrest since November 7. 

The only information known to police following the murder was that the man who shot him was driving a motorcycle, while there were hundreds of potential suspects, police said.

However, detectives used advanced technological equipment and forensic analysis along with additional investigations in order to single out the suspect within three weeks. During the suspect's arrest, police found a pistol that matched the ballistic information collected at the site of the crime, the police spokesperson added.   

Perry was shot to death on October 15 outside a synagogue following morning prayers. He owned a real estate firm and had encountered severe financial difficulties forcing a declaration of bankruptcy. As of June 2021, he had amassed personal debts of some NIS 324 million and his company had accrued an even larger deficit, according to reports.
