Officials question man in sisters’ deaths



PITTSBURGH — The district attorney says a man was questioned to “facilitate” the investigation into the slaying of two Pittsburgh women who are the sisters of an Iowa state representative.
Pittsburgh police and Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. aren’t releasing the man’s name. But he was detained for several hours late Wednesday into this morning as police searched his apartment, which is next door to the former home of 44-year-old Susan Wolfe, 44, and her sister, 38-year-old Sarah Wolfe.
The women were found dead, each shot once in the head, on Feb. 7. Their sister, Mary Wolfe, is a Democratic state representative from Clinton, Iowa.
Zappala says it’s premature to call the man who was questioned a “suspect.”
Instead, Zappala says it was necessary “to detain an individual to facilitate part of the investigation.”
