Police suspect foul play after an Ariel woman was found Tuesday dead in an apartment in the West Bank city with signs of violence on her body.
Head of the Shomron subdistrict of the Israel Police, Cmdr. Shimon Buhbut said police received a call from a neighbor around 10:30 Tuesday morning complaining of a bad smell coming from the apartment next door. Buhbut said that officers who arrived and burst into the apartment found the victim lying dead on the floor of the apartment with signs of violence on her body.
At the moment crime scene investigators are working to determine the cause of death, but all signs indicate murder, police say, mainly due to the signs of violence but also because the victim is a young woman in her 30s.
