Man sought as witness to sisters’ slaying

Police - investigation

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Police in western Pennsylvania are asking for help from the public in finding a man in connection with the shooting deaths of two sisters of an Iowa state representative in a Pittsburgh home, but they stress that he is not considered a suspect.

Pittsburgh police homicide detectives on Monday distributed pictures of a man they say was on board the same city bus that 44-year-old Susan Wolfe rode on the evening of February 6.

Wolfe and her sister, 38-year-old Sarah Wolfe, were found shot to death the next morning in the basement of the home they shared. Police said the man is sought as a witness.

Sarah Wolfe was a psychiatrist and Susan Wolfe was a teacher’s aide. A sister, Mary Wolfe, is an Iowa Democratic state representative.
