Verevskoy pronounced dead in the hospital on Monday, three days before he was to celebrate his 28th birthday and while his wife is in labor.
A Russian news website claimed that the attack occurred following a fight, but now investigators are looking into whether it was a premeditated murder.
The Russian-born Verevskoy studied architecture and civil engineering at St. Petersburg State University. He immigrated to Israel in 2010, before drafting into the IDF. He lived in Jerusalem until returning to Russia in 2012.
