A pe*dophile was sta*bbed 23 times when a 16-year-old boy went to his house with a k*nife and ki*lled him on purpose. The boy has been charged with mu*rder. The teen then tried to set fire to the ped*ophile’s apartment to hide evidence that linked him to the crime.
The 16-year-old wasn’t named because of his age.
Convicted Pe*dophile Found Dead in His Apartment
42-year-old Haim Vizman was found dead in his Netanya apartment by two teens around 3 a.m. in the middle of August. He had been found guilty of ped*ophilia. The teens called the police and the ambulance service. People at the scene said the man was dead.
Vizman had a history of sexual abuse of children. His usual thing to do was look for young men to sex with.
Lod County officials said in the indictment that the mu*rder was “cruel and unusual.”
Teen Confesses to Mu*rder
At first, the teen suspect denied having anything to do with the mu*rder, but later he admitted to everything and told the police that he did it in self-defense.
About a month before the mur*der, the teen met the convicted pe*dophile on Facebook. After being arrested on August 8, 2021, he told The Times of Israel:
“I talked to him on Facebook. I was interested in him sexually, so I wanted to get to know him. I’m not sure if I’m gay or straight. I didn’t understand.” “We met in Netanya and went to his house,” he said. He tried to make sex with me even though I didn’t like the way he looked or find him attractive. He locked the door to the house and wouldn’t let me out. I got a k*nife from the kitchen and told him to leave me alone and open the door. We got into a fight, and I sta*bbed him with a kni*fe, k*illing him.
Police Say Mur*der Was Premeditated
After looking into it, the police found that this version of events was not true. They said that he had the kn*ife before the meeting and pointed out how many st*ab wounds the main victim had. Lastly, the police said that the attempt to set fire to the scene of the st*abbing to hide it proved it was a planned mur*der.
