A suspect has been taken into custody in last month’s slaying of Detroit synagogue president Samantha Woll, Detroit Police said Wednesday.
In a opinion on XDetroit Police Chief James E. White said details of the investigation will remain confidential at this time.
“While this is an encouraging development in our desire to bring closure to Ms. Woll’s family, it does not represent the conclusion of our work in this case…” the statement read. “Details of the investigation will remain confidential at this time to ensure the integrity of the important steps that remain … Investigators will continue their work with the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office until the conclusion of this investigation.”
White has previously said that no evidence has emerged that the killing was motivated by anti-Semitism.
Police did not identify the suspect in Woll’s murder. It is unclear what charges the suspect faces.
Over two weeks ago during a news conference, White said police had “a number of people of interest to us” but “were just short of calling one of the people a suspect.”
This is a developing story and will be updated.
