Third murder in northern city prompts police to probe serial killer

Police open an investigation into a suspected serial killer after the body of a suspected murder victim was discovered in the northern city of Ma’alot-Tarshiha bearing signs of violence.

The badly beaten body was found last night by the man’s ex-wife.

Reports said the victim, who was wheelchair-bound, was bludgeoned to death with a blunt object, and the walls of his home were covered in blood.

Police are reportedly investigating a connection between Monday’s murder and two other similar murders in 2015 and 2016 in Ma’alot-Tarshiha that remain unsolved.
