Taxi Driver Found Dead in Cab in Northern Israel

This is the second incident of the kind to occur over the last two weeks; police suspect murder.

A taxi driver in his 50s was found dead early Monday in his vehicle near Kibbutz Kfar Hahoresh in the Northern Galilee.

A gag order was issued on all details relating to the investigation, but so far the police have reported that they suspect the man was murdered.

The man was discovered around 3A.M., when pedestrians noticed a taxi standing on the side of highway 75 between Nazereth and the Moshav Nahalal, and saw the body in the front seat.

This is the second apparent murder of a taxi driver in the North in the last two weeks. The first murder victim, a 48-year-old Arab man, was found near Ma'alot.
