Meier Betark, 32, an immigrant from Poland, was found dead on the road from Haifa to Nazareth. A British officer came upon his body in the road.

The murder was apparently committed several days ago and the body thrown on the highway in order to conceal the identity of the perpetrators. He was brought to the pioneer settlement, Nahalal.
