Samantha Woll killing not an act of antisemitism

Detroit Police Chief James White said Monday he is confident a Detroit synagogue president’s slaying was “not motivated by antisemitism.”

“Right now, the evidence has not taken us there,” White said.

No arrests have been made in the killing of Samantha Woll, whose body was discovered Saturday morning in an upscale neighborhood of townhomes just east of downtown Detroit. Woll had attended a wedding earlier in the day. Police were scouring video footage from the neighborhood and along the route from the wedding venue, the chief said.

Samantha Woll, 40, who led the Isaac Agree Downtown Detroit Synagogue, was found fatally stabbed outside her home in the city’s Lafayette Park neighborhood, east of downtown, on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2023.

White said police were speaking to a number of “persons of interest” in the case, but were “just short” of calling one of those people a suspect.

“We believe there are no other groups or anyone else at risk,” White said in a Monday news conference. “We believe that this incident was not motivated by antisemitism and that this suspect acted alone.”
