Police confirmed that their investigation into Samantha Woll's killing has not yet uncovered any evidence of a hate crime as a motive.
The Detroit synagogue president, tragically found stabbed to death outside her home on Saturday, was laid to rest on Sunday.
As loved ones paid their respects to Samantha Woll, the police confirmed that their investigation into her killing has not yet uncovered any evidence of a hate crime as a motive.
"The investigation into the death of Ms. Woll remains ongoing. At this time, however, no evidence has surfaced suggesting that this crime was motivated by antisemitism," said Police Chief James E. White in a statement obtained by Scripps News Detroit.
According to White, the FBI and Detroit Police Department detectives are collaborating to examine all the information gathered thus far in an attempt to determine the sequence of events that resulted in Woll's death, and officials are interviewing people with potential information to further the investigation.
"I again ask the community to remain patient while our investigators and law enforcement partners continue their work. Everything that can be done to bring this matter to closure is being called into service," White said.

First responders discovered Woll's lifeless body outside her home on Saturday, and police later confirmed that she had been stabbed multiple times.
