An Israeli couple in their 70s was found dead on Sunday in their apartment on Mordecai Alkachi St in the East Jerusalem district of Armon Hanatziv. Stabbing wounds and marks of extreme violence were found on their bodies. Jerusalem police were already searching for the suspect of a knife attack on a 15-year old girl last Wednesday on the same street. She is recovering in hospital. Members of the couple’s family had tried to reach them by phone since last Thursday. When there was no reply, they called the police. Officers who gained entry to the apartment after three days found a horrendous scene. The police determined in a statement later that this was a case of double murder.
