The 20-year-old suspect has been charged with attempted murder and will undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
She narrowly escaped a horrible end. In Israel, an 18-year-old girl was the victim of an attempted murder by her brother, apparently with the intention of having sex with her corpse.
According to information from The Jerusalem Post, the events took place in the city of Kfar Saba, northeast of Tel Aviv. “He entered my room in the middle of the night and suddenly took a knife and started stabbing me in the skull, the victim says, as quoted by local media. If I had not run out of the room, he would have killed me. .”
A keen interest in necrophiliac films
The young woman luckily escaped and alerted the emergency services, which quickly intervened. The victim was hospitalized with shock and minor head injuries, but his condition was not life-threatening. On his part, the 20-year-old assailant confessed to the facts in police custody and told the police that after killing his sister, he intended to rape her body.
According to The Jerusalem Post, the young man revealed to investigators that he had a keen interest in necrophiliac films, which prompted him to take action. “This is a difficult family matter that the family is trying to overcome,” the suspect’s court-appointed attorneys said. The teenager has struggled with mental health issues for years and has no criminal record.
Necrophilia is not a criminal offense in Israel
“Due to his condition, he has been hospitalized in a psychiatric hospital since his arrest,” the youth’s representatives said. He will remain in the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, which will determine his condition.” According to the Jerusalem Post, the suspect is still charged with attempted murder.
Local media also reveal that necrophilia is not considered a criminal offense in Israel. In 2018, a ruling by the High Court of the Hebrew State established that crimes of a sexual nature only apply when the victim is a “living person”.
