(JTA) — A Jewish man was killed in his apartment in Paris, where the victim’s twin brother found his lifeless body bound and with a plastic bag covering his face.
The brother of Jeremy Dahan called a locksmith to open the door of the apartment in the city’s 12th District, near the eastern suburb of Bagnolet, where Jeremy Dahan was overseeing renovations of an apartment he owns. He had hired two Moldovan workers for the job.
Police have arrested one of the workers and are searching for the second one, the JForum news site reported Thursday.
Dahan’s wife, who is pregnant with their first child, called the brother and asked him to look for her husband after he failed to return home.
Police believe the motive for the crime is financial, according to the report. Jeremy Dahan’s car and an expensive hand watch were missing.
In the murder last month of a Jewish Holocaust survivor, prosecutors have indicted the mother of a defendant, who with an accomplice is accused of targeting the 85-year-old woman for robbery and stabbing her to death, then setting the body on fire.
