Mary Wolfe: Iowa State Rep.’s Sisters Found DeadBy: Daryl Nelson - February 10, 2014
Sarah and Susan Wolfe, the sisters of Iowa State Rep. Mary Wolfe, were found shot to death inside their Pittsburgh, Pa. home a few days ago, according to the local police.
Based on reports from the Allegheny County medical examiner’s office, both deaths were ruled a homicide, but authorities haven’t come up with any suspects or a motive.
The bodies of the two sisters were discovered after neither of them showed up for work last week, and their jobs called police to check on them. Later, the authorities noticed that Sarah Wolfe’s car was missing from her home, and appeared to be stolen, but it was located on Saturday morning around 1:15 a.m.
At this point there are several things that aren’t matching up, say police, considering the Wolfes just recently moved to Pittsburgh and probably didn’t know a lot of people there, which makes the police wonder who would want to harm them.
On Mary Wolfe’s Facebook page, she said her family was suffering greatly, but she still wanted to take the time to thank those who have given her support. “We are so grateful,” she wrote. “Heartbroken, but grateful.”
However, it appears that she disabled her Facebook page for the time being, since she’s probably being inundated with messages, which may be too much for her and her family to bare at the moment.
As of now, police haven’t determined how long the sisters have been dead, and it’s obvious they’re putting together the pieces that will hopefully reveal if these murders were a random crime or if there’s some sort of connection between the sisters and the killer.
Currently, Mary Wolfe is serving her second term as Iowa’s State Rep., and sits on the Judiciary, Public Safety, Human Resources, Transportation and Justice Systems Appropriations subcommittee, according to her website. And she’s a board member of the Clinton County Justice Coordinating Council.
