DETROIT (Michigan News Source) – An attorney said that police have released a suspect in the investigation of the fatal stabbing of 40-year-old Samantha Woll, a Detroit synagogue leader.
Allison Kriger told The Associated Press the suspect was free but declined to comment further; the Detroit Free Press said the suspect was a man.
No charges have been filed in the case.
Woll served as president of Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue. She was found dead outside her Detroit home on Oct. 21, hours after returning from a wedding. Investigators believe the attack occurred inside. Police do not believe the attack is a result of antisemitism.
Woll had worked for U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin and on the political campaign of state Attorney General Dana Nessel.
