Bloody gloves in Israël

This murder of attorney Anat Plinner in Ramat Hasharon in 2006 finally was presumably attributed in June 2008 to a teenager after he was arrested merely for riding a stolen motorcycle.

DNA found on the murder scene matched his own. The photo shows his gloves left on the murder scene. Bluestar applied on them revealed the victim’s blood.

Police yesterday informed the relatives of a 42-year-old female attorney from Ramat Hasharon who was stabbed to death outside her home in 2006 that a 17-year-old boy recently confessed to perpetrating the unresolved crime and reenacted it for detectives. The details of the case had been the subject of a gag order that was partially lifted yesterday.

On April 10, 2006, attorney Anat Pliner answered a nighttime knock at the door of her home in the Tel Aviv suburb. When she opened the door, the perpetrator stabbed her in the stomach. She collapsed and later died en route to hospital.

According to police, the 17-year-old suspect, who resides and attends high school in Ramat Hasharon, confessed to the killing, after a DNA sample that was found on the murder scene was found to match his own. On Friday, the Tel Aviv Youth Court extended his custody. The Tel Aviv Prosecutor’s Office said it intends to indict the teen for murder.

The boy was first apprehended a few weeks ago, after police detained him for riding a stolen motorcycle without a valid license. He was questioned, gave a DNA sample and was released. In processing the sample, police found that it matched the DNA that police believed to belong to the perpetrator, which they had extracted from a knife and gloves left at the murder scene.

After the test results came back, the teen was rearrested, last Thursday, and reportedly confessed to Pliner’s murder a few hours later. He maintained that he arrived at Pliner’s house and asked her for money, adding that he had not known her before. Pliner refused and when she started shouting, he stabbed her and fled the scene.
