PITTSBURGH (AP) - Two sisters of an Iowa state representative have been found dead of apparent gunshot wounds in the Pittsburgh home they shared, and police are investigating the case as a double homicide.
The bodies of 44-year-old Susan Wolfe and 38-year-old Sarah Wolfe were found Friday afternoon in their basement after they didn't show up for work, authorities said. Police found Sarah Wolfe's car around 1:15 a.m. Saturday parked nearly a mile away.
Sarah Wolfe was a psychiatrist for Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, and Susan Wolfe was a teacher's aide at Hillel Academy in Pittsburgh's Squirrel Hill neighborhood.
Pittsburgh police Lt. Daniel Herrmann said they don't have a motive for the killings, and there were no signs of forced entry. Family members, most of whom live in Iowa, said they're still trying to figure out what happened.
A sister, Mary Wolfe, is an Iowa Democratic state representative who lives in Clinton. Her website says she is the oldest of eight children, six girls and two boys.
On her Facebook page Saturday night, Rep. Wolfe thanked friends, neighbors and colleagues for their support.
"We are so grateful," she wrote. "Heartbroken, but grateful."
The medical examiner's office has not released causes of death, but police say it appears the women had been shot.
Neighbors said the area is normally quiet and safe.
Apparently it was Pittsburgh PA
How does a person appear to be shot? Either theres a hole or theres not.
Fred, did you forget this is, after all, AOL we are talking about.
I'm trying to figure out what the african american woman is showing them on her phone - the screen is facing us, not them. ????
My first guess would be a client of the psychiatrist.
Rather than client, I'd say more likely ward/inmate of the State.
My condolences to the family.
They each died from a single gunshot to the head. More like execution style.
this article tells us NOTHING
They don't know ANYTHING,
God bless the family and may they find the people or person that did this unhumana act.
I would say that's a strong message! But as long a politicians lie to there fellow Americans and run states with blind eye what do u think the future holds.. Major land grabs going on
