Police Widen Search for Netanya Hit-and-Run Suspect


The police widened their search, Monday morning, for Shushan Baraby, suspected in the hit-and-run death of three women, Friday evening in Netanya. They are waiting for results of DNA testing to determine who was driving the car that was left at the scene. Police are downplaying the possibility that Yochai Glicksman - who confessed and took back his confession - was the driver.

An arrest warrant was issued, Sunday evening for Baraby's wife, who is suspected of being involved in efforts to hide him or of having information on his whereabouts. Police believe Baraby picked up his wife after the accident and travelled to an unknown location. They are concerned he will try to flee the country any way he can. Baraby's wife is in the advanced stages of pregnancy. Because of that, they believe she will have to "surface" soon.
