Two women have admitted to killing chemistry professor Dr. Eli Laluz. Laluz was killed last week in his Tel Aviv apartment. The two had attempted to rob Laluz, after he invited them into his apartment. Police were led to the two women, and two male accomplices, after investigating evidence in Laluz's apartment.
Laluz, 70, was a resident of France, vacationed frequently in Israel, and was said to be planning to remain in Israel permanently. He was a former employee of the Weizmann Institute.
