Retired IDF officer suspected of murdering former business partner

The body of Shimon Pinto, 35, from Sderot, who went missing last week, was found Tuesday night along Route 6. The body was found after Pinto's former business partner, a retired IDF officer, admitted to having killed him. According to police, the relationship between the two had soured following a business dispute. The suspect, 40, led police to the site where he buried the body, underneath Route 6, near Shoham. The suspect, who is licensed to carry a firearm, claimed that he shot Pinto in self defense. He is set to be remanded in custody on Thursday.
