Authorities have asked for the public’s cooperation in the investigation of the case of Woll, who chaired the board of the Isaac Agree Downtown synagogue, in downtown Detroit, and who worked for Democratic Congresswoman Elissa Slotkins, according to the legislator on her network. social.
“We are heartbroken by this news. Sam worked for me almost from the moment I became a congressman, helping us establish the office and run it during my first term,” he said.
“It hurts my heart that we have lost someone so dedicated to serving others in such a senseless act,” he said.
Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan said that Woll’s death “has left a huge void in the community” and recalled that he recently shared when the renovation of the synagogue was being celebrated.
“It was a project that she successfully led with great pride and enthusiasm,” Duggan noted.
