Cops Seek Mystery Man No. 2 in Slaying of Pittsburgh Jewish School Teacher

Pittsburgh police are seeking a second mystery man who may have had contact with Jewish day school teacher’s aide Susan Wolfe on the night she was murdered along with her sister.

Cops have reportedly already identified a man who apparently rode a bus home with a slain Jewish day school teacher’s aide — and insist he is not a suspect in the double murder of Wolfe and her sister, Sarah.

Now they want to talk to another man caught by surveillance cameras at a Sunoco gas station on Thursday, February 6, the night police believe she and Sarah Wolfe were killed by single bullets to the head, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

The new man is “merely a witness that could provide homicide detectives with essential information relevant to this investigation,” according to a news release from major crimes Lt. Daniel Herrmann.

Susan Wolfe was a highly regarded teacher’s aide at Hillel Academy in the upscale Squirrel Hill neighborhood.

The bodies of Susan and Sarah Wolfe were found February 7 in the basement of their two-story home in East Liberty, Pa. There were no signs of forced entry, police said.

Police checked the home after a co-worker of Susan Wolfe, 44, asked them to check when she did not show up for work. Sarah Wolfe, 38, worked as a pediatrician and psychiatrist at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

Sarah Wolfe’s car was found Saturday morning, about a mile from the home.

The women have six other siblings, including Iowa state representative Mary Wolfe.
