Sisters of Iowa Rep. found dead


PITTSBURGH (AP) — Two sisters of an Iowa state representative have been found dead of apparent gunshot wounds in their Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania home, and police say they are investigating the case as a double homicide.

Authorities say the bodies of 44-year-old Susan Wolfe  and 38-year-old Sarah Wolfe were found Friday afternoon in their basement after they didn’t show up for work. Police found Sarah Wolfe’s car early Saturday parked nearly a mile away.

Sarah Wolfe was a psychiatrist for Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, and Susan Wolfe was a teacher’s aide at Hillel Academy in the city.

Pittsburgh police Lieutenant Daniel Herrmann says they don’t have a motive for the killings, and there were no signs of forced entry.

A sister, Mary Wolfe, is an Iowa Democratic state representative who lives in Clinton.
