The murder of Yuri Volkov is solved
Minute by minute (Israel Police spokeswoman)
The prosecutor's office today (Thursday) filed an indictment against 23-year-old Adi Mizrahi from Holon for the murder of Yuri Volkov "for no real reason".
It should be noted that Mizrahi was charged with murder, but not with aggravated murder.
According to the indictment, while Volkov and his partner, Yelena, were crossing a crosswalk, Mizrahi sped up on a scooter, even though there was a red light in the direction of his travel.
Yelena took a picture of Mizrahi and asked to continue on her way, at which point she also said goodbye to Volkov who turned in a different direction.
Mizrahi, who noticed that he was being photographed by Yelena, followed her, blocked her path and demanded that she delete the photo she had taken.
At this point, Volkov noticed the incident, arrived at the scene and asked Mizrahi what happened, and asked him to continue driving.
In response Mizrahi pulled out a sharp object from his clothes and stabbed Volkov in the heart.
Immediately after, Mizrahi fled the scene riding the scooter at speed.
Volkov took a few steps, collapsed due to immobility and was rushed to a hospital with resuscitation efforts, about an hour later he was pronounced dead.
Shortly after Mizrahi escaped from the scene, he tried to destroy the evidence linking him to the incident, and made sure to disappear the sharp object with which he stabbed Volkov to death.

The prosecution asked to extend his detention until the end of the proceedings.
"Mizrahi's high dangerousness is evident both from the execution of the murder itself, of a person with whom the respondent had no real physical or verbal confrontation, and from the respondent's actions immediately after the murder when he began to act coldly to hide evidence," said lawyers Kinneret Kahn-Moor and Aviv Bar Or .
"Mizrahi's dangerousness is also learned from the fact that he used to hide a sharp object between his clothes, and from his saying to an acquaintance that he was 'dying to stab someone', something that also teaches about the state of mind of the respondent."
Yesterday, the police announced that they had finished their investigation into Volkov's murder case.
In the video she published, Mizrahi is seen on the eve of the murder, when he leaves his house on his motorcycle and when he returns to it afterwards.
From the findings of the investigation it emerged that Mizrahi left his house on the evening of the murder to join his partner who had earlier gone to the vet with their puppy to get it vaccinated.

Mizrahi arrived at the Yoseftal-Eilat intersection in Holon, where he stabbed Volkov after the argument with his partner and left the place.
After that Mizrahi went to collect a debt from a person who owed him money.
From there he came to the Jaffa area to meet his friend and then returned home, where, according to the estimate, he realized from the news sites that the person he stabbed had died from his wounds.
Within minutes he arrived at the house of his friend Mizrahi, a resident of Jaffa, and left the place, after which the friend in Jaffa, the suspect and his partner, allegedly, went to his house to ask him to get rid of the scooter he was using at the time of the stabbing.
Another friend of Mizrahi was asked to help him buy a new cell phone and bring turpentine to his house to erase unique marks on the motorcycle.
At noon the following day, Mizrahi was seen leaving the house, pushing his scooter out of the yard, starting it, placing a helmet on the seat and returning to the house.
Two men arrived on a scooter, one of them got off and took the scooter.
