LONDON (Oct. 14)
Mattityahu Sharon, retiring press counselor at the Israel Embassy here, was found shot to death in his St. Johns Wood apartment here today with a pistol beside his body. An investigation is in progress but police said there was no evidence of foul play. Mr. Sharon, 42, a former major in the Israel Army, was married last week to Varda Fodor, a secretary to the Israel Consul General. He was due to return to Israel shortly to take up a new post.
