A 28 year-old German national of Albanian descent was arrested Friday in connection with the murder of an Israeli citizen in Berlin, German newspaper Der Tagesspiegel reported on Friday.
Czech authorities arrested the suspect on Friday near the border with Germany and will proceed with extradition protocols.
According to investigators, the suspect met the Israeli, Yosef Damari, aged 22, in a Berlin hostel last week and is believed to have murdered him the following day…
…Damari’s body was found with his Israeli passport on Easter Sunday in the ruins of a Berlin church where the murder is believed to have occurred on Saturday.
Initially, definitive identification was rendered difficult due to the victim’s considerable injuries.
Berlin Prosecutor Martin Steltner claimed that there was no indication of a robbery prior to or after the murder, but also suggested that there was no evidence to suggest that the murder was politically motivated.
No motive as of yet…but Albanian usually means Muslim. It was a vicious murder too.
