Person of the year in Israeli crime: The Felician family

Though they say it typically doesn't happen twice in the same place, in 2013 lightning struck one small corner of Bnei Brak’s Pardes Katz neighborhood over and over, continuously bringing sorrow to a single Israeli family.

Few people had a worse year in 2013 than the Felician family.

In June, police announced the arrest of three suspects in the August 2009 Bar Noar LGBT center shooting, which for four years had been the flagship case for Tel Aviv police and had reportedly cost millions of shekels to investigate.

The three suspects included brothers Haggai and Benny Felician, the former the chief suspect and only man who would end up indicted in the case. 

According to police, the motive for the murder was the alleged sexual assault of the teenage Benny by the then-manager of the Bar Noar.

Hagai, looking to avenge the assault of his brother, then went to the Bar Noar with a pistol and began firing in all directions, leaving 26-year-old Nir Katz of Givatayim and 17-year-old Liz Troubishi from Holon dead and injuring 11 others, according to police.
