The lifeless body of a Jewish man was found in his Paris apartment – bound and with a plastic bag around his face. According to a report by the JTA, the body was discovered by the victim’s twin brother.
The victim has been identified as Jeremy Dahan.
His brother reportedly telephoned a locksmith to gain access to the apartment in the 12th District, after the victim’s wife could not reach him. The victims wife is pregnant with their first child.
Jeremy reported he was overseeing renovations in the apartment, work that was being carried out by two Moldovan workers. One of the workers is in custody as a suspect in the murder.
Police believe the motive for the crime is financial, according to the report. Jeremy Dahan’s car and an expensive wrist watch were missing.
The murder comes less than a month after the horrific murder of Mirelle Knoll, an 85-year-old Holocaust survivor, believed to have been killed by a neighbor in her Paris apartment.
