Suspect Released Without Charges in Murder of Detroit Synagogue Leader

A suspect who was in custody in connection with the murder of Samantha Woll, a Jewish community leader in Detroit, was released without charges.

The Detroit Free Press reports that a suspect apprehended earlier this week in the murder of Samantha Woll, a prominent synagogue leader, has been released without charges.

Samantha Woll, 40, was a respected synagogue president and a well-known figure in Democratic circles. The tragic incident, which took place on October 21st, saw Woll fatally stabbed in her Detroit residence.

Woll was the political director for MI Democrat Attorney General Dana Nessel’s re-election campaign in 2022. AG Nessel is best known for using her position to commit lawfare against her political opponents and for her public drunken antics.

I am shocked, saddened and horrified to learn of Sam’s brutal murder. Sam was as kind a person as I’ve ever known. She was driven by her sincere love of her community, state and country. Sam truly used her faith and activism to create a better place for everyone.

Woll founded the Muslim-Jewish Forum of Detroit, an organization created to build better relations between Muslims and Jews.
