The Israel Police announced Sunday a “significant” development in the investigation into the murder of Shelly Dadon, one that it and the Shin Bet security service hope will finally enable them to crack the case.

Dadon, 20, of Afula, was murdered on May 1. Her parents said she left the house that morning to go to a job interview, but never arrived. Her body was found with multiple stab wounds later that afternoon in the Ramat Gabriel industrial zone in Migdal Ha’emek.
Six Israeli Arabs were initially arrested on suspicion of involvement in the murder, but were later released without charge.
A few days after Dadon was killed, Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch said police suspected it was a terror attack, but there is still no known proof as to whether the murder stemmed from nationalist motives.
A gag order remains in place. However, the Supreme Court partially lifted it to allow publication of the fact that six men had been arrested and released.
