Police identify man who may be able to help determine who killed two sisters in East Liberty

Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014, 12:12 p.m.

Pittsburgh police have identified a man they say may be a witness who could help determine who killed two sisters in East Liberty.

The man, who police say is not a suspect, was on board the same Port Authority bus that Susan Wolfe, 44, rode on the evening of Feb. 6, police said. Police released surveillance footage of the man Monday seeking the public's help in identifying him. Lt. Daniel Herrmann said Tuesday the man was identified and will be interviewed by detectives.

The bodies of Wolfe, who worked as a teacher's aide at Hillel Academy in Squirrel Hill, and her sister, Sarah Wolfe, 38, a psychiatrist at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, were found the next afternoon in the basement of the home they shared on Chislett Street.
