April 5, 1932
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The coroner returned a verdict of suicide to-day in the case of the American Jewish tourist, Israel Wolfe, who was found dead with his throat cut in the Arab quarter. Two bags belonging to Wolfe were found by the coroner’s officer at the Jerusalem railway station, among the contents being a whetstone and a safety razor.

The members of the Palestine Arab Executive saw the High Commissioner this afternoon, and urged that the Government should conduct a strict investigation to discover how the young Arab driver who was found dead in the same district as Wolfe, also with his throat cut, came to meet his death, and designated him another Arab “martyr”.
