Investigators have identified several people of interest in the fatal stabbing of a Detroit synagogue leader, but no one person can publicly be deemed a prime suspect, police said Monday.
“We have a number of people that give us interest,” Chief James White said Monday. “We are just short of calling one of the people a suspect, but we are working to that end.”
White provided an update Monday about the killing of Samantha Woll, the leader of the Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue in Detroit, who was found dead outside her home at 6:30 a.m. Saturday.
Police found a “trail of blood” leading to the inside of her home where they believe the crime occurred. White said the police department has to be “very, very cautious” about the information it shares, The Associated Press reported.
“There are very intricate details about this case that, if revealed, could really damage what we’re trying to accomplish,” he said.
White previously said investigators were working with the FBI to analyze forensic evidence to piece together a timeline leading up to her death.
Police have said that Woll’s death doesn’t appear to be an act of antisemitism.
Woll previously served as a staffer for Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.) and Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel (D).
