Esther Horgen, 52, mother of six from the Tal Menashe settlement in the West Bank, was found dead in a nearby forest on Monday after disappearing the day before.
Israeli officials have labeled her death a murder and settler leaders have alleged that she was killed in a Palestinian attack. Israel's figurehead President Reuven Rivlin visited the family on Thursday and offered condolences.
Almost 500,000 Israeli settlers live in the West Bank, which Israel conquered in the 1967 war. The Palestinians want the West Bank to be part of their future state and view the settlements as illegal and an obstacle to peace, a position shared by most of the international community.
