Israel Police chief Kobi Shabtai orders the head of the Israel Police’s Investigations and Intelligence Division, Superintendent Yigal Ben Shalom, to probe the findings of a post-exhumation autopsy on Yuval Castleman, as well as the overall conduct of the investigation.

Castleman, a civilian who stopped to take out a terrorist in a Jerusalem shooting attack last month, was shot dead at the scene by a reservist IDF soldier.

According to Hebrew media reports, the autopsy carried out on Castleman after his body was exhumed found bullets inside his corpse, after police claimed there were no bullets inside his body and therefore an autopsy was not necessary and was not carried out. Castelman’s family agreed to have him exhumed.

The reservist soldier, Aviad Frija, was released to house arrest last week.
