Debrecen, Hungary - Ofir Gross, 40, who was found dead hours after having been declared missing in Hungary, had been beaten to death by bricks while sleeping according to Hungarian authorities, Channel 2 reported Tuesday.

According to the report, two suspects arrested Sunday in connection to the murder came across Gross who was sleeping in an empty yard and stole his valuables including his cell phone and personal computer after killing him.

They then allegedly dragged his body from the murder site and buried it under debris at a nearby abandoned building. 

The suspects are male, aged 21 and 19.

Gross had last contacted his family on Thursday. Israeli authorities delivered the announcement to his family, who traveled to Hungary to identify the body.


Gross, a resident of Jerusalem, had gone to Hungary on a trip after finishing his studies in medical engineering.

A witness last saw Gross drinking beer at a local bar. According to the witness, Gross said he did not want to order food because it was expensive, and then wanted to get a hotel room but chose not to because of the cost.
