By YAAKOV LAPPIN
The bodies of two men with bullet wounds to their heads were discovered Sunday in Netivot, in what police suspect could be a murder-suicide case.
Sami Sasson, 44, a barber from Netivot, and the suspected gunman, security guard Meir Shakuri Zamir, 36, a married father of two, were found dead in Sasson's barber shop in Netivot's old market area.
Police are investigating whether Zamir may have suspected Sasson of having an affair with his wife, leading him to shoot Sasson before turning the firearm on himself.
Police will seek court permission to conduct an autopsy on the bodies on Monday.
