Woman's Decapitated Body Found in Suitcase in South Tel Aviv

Passerby finds body in stairwell; police launch investigation.

A body of a woman in her thirties was found Saturday afternoon in a stairwell in south Tel Aviv. The body was decapitated and stuffed inside a suitcase. Police have launched an investigation into the incident.

A passerby riding his bicycle through the area discovered the body. When he found the suitcase, he tried to pick it up. Realizing that it was heavy, he opened the suitcase and discovered its gruesome contents.

Police have yet to determine whether the perpetrator knew the victim and whether the violence followed some kind of a dispute; alternately the attack may have been a random act of a psychopath.
