Police say 40-year-old Samantha Woll, president of the Isaac Agree Downtown Detroit Synagogue, “had been stabbed multiple times” and blood trailed from her home in the Lafayette Park neighborhood, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Woll was previously a staffer for U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin and the re-election campaign of Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, both Democrats.

“I am shocked, saddened and horrified to learn of Sam’s brutal murder,” Nessel said on X, sharing a photo of Woll.

“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.”
