Katy David, 27, of Kfar Yona, was found murdered in a grove of eucalyptus trees near Hadera by a passerby. October 23, 2005 is registered as her death.
Katy David worked as a security guard at the Poleg mall in Netanya, where she had made the acquaintance of Samir Abu Mokh, 21, from Baka al-Gharbiya. Abu Mokh had arranged to meet her after work and drive her home, but arrived with Muhammad Hashen, 26, also from Baka al-Gharbiya, and the two persuaded her to enter their car on the pretext of having a discussion about work.
The two drove Katy to the eucalyptus grove, where they tried to force her from the car.
Police investigators said that she fought her assailants until she was eventually overcome by their repeated stabbings (28) and blows to the head with a wrench.
Police also determined that Abu Mokh, in order to ensure she was dead, then ran over her body with his car.
The two terrorists were captured in an intensive man hunt several days later, during which Abu Mokh turned himself in and informed on Hashen.
They were brought to trial, where they confessed to murdering her “because she was a Jew.”
They were convicted of kidnapping and murder.
Katy David was buried in Kfar Yona. She is survived by her parents, Zvi and Shoshana, and two siblings.
