His body was transfered to the center of forensic medicine at Abu Kabir. According to officials, the body showed signs of a brutal beating.

Hillel Lieberman, 36, was the son of a Brooklyn rabbi and a relative of the Democratic candidate for vice president, Connecticut Senator Joseph Lieberman.

The New York Times reported on Monday that Lieberman's father had collapsed at his home in Midwood, Brooklyn, after receiving the call from Israel at 4:30 P.M. (EST) on Sunday, notifying him of his son's death.
