Samantha Woll was found stabbed to death outside her home Saturday morning — and the public is urged to avoid speculating about the circumstances of her death until more details are known.
The “politically connected” synagogue president, 40, was found outside her home in the city’s Lafayette Park neighborhood, east of downtown, the Detroit Free Press reported.
Police said the motive for the killing is not yet known. The Michigan chapter of the Anti-Defamation League asked the public to “refrain from speculation” until more information is available.
“We are shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the death of Samantha Woll, a beloved and respected leader in the Detroit Jewish Community,” the organization said in a statement.
“As we mourn her tragic passing, we urge the community to refrain from speculation and allow law enforcement to gather facts.”
Detroit police responded to a 911 call of an unresponsive person around 6:30 a.m. and found a body outside a home on Joliet Place, according to multiple published reports.
Detroit police are probing the deadly mystery, but in a statement posted on social media, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said she was “horrified to learn of Sam’s brutal murder.”
Woll’s body was discovered along with a “trail of blood” that led from the suspected crime scene to Woll’s home, the outlet reported.
Police believe the crime took place inside her home, according to CNN.
