Suspect in murder of Detroit synagogue president released from custody, attorney says

A suspect taken into custody in connection with the murder of Detroit synagogue president Samantha Woll this week has since been released, the suspect’s attorney confirmed.

The suspect was released from custody on Friday, according to the attorney, Allison Kriger, who did not go into further detail.

Detroit Police Chief James White initially announced the suspect’s arrest in a statement on social media on Wednesday, calling it an “encouraging development in our desire to bring closure for Ms. Woll’s family” but one that “does not represent the conclusion of our work in this case.”
