WABC-TV reports that the FBI is participating in the investigation of the Wednesday evening murder of a Republican council member in New Jersey.
Approximately 7:30 p.m., Eunice Dwumfour, a member of the Sayreville Borough Council in New York City, was shot in her vehicle outside her apartment.
“We are aware of the investigation into the death of Councilwoman Dwumfour, in Sayreville Wednesday evening,” the FBI stated in a statement released by WABC on Friday.
“We have talked with our local law enforcement partners at the Sayreville Police Department and the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office,” it said. “Should they ask us for any assistance, we will do all we can to help their investigation.”
WABC reports that witnesses may have spotted a person rushing from the location where Dwumfour was slain toward the Garden State Parkway. No motive has been identified for the murder.
Pastor Nelia Rodriguez, a friend of Dwumfour, stated on Thursday’s episode of “The Ingraham Angle” on Fox News that the killing of Dwumfour was a “personal attack.”

“We believe it [was] very personal because she was shot seven times in the face and another seven shots were hitting everywhere [else]. So for somebody to get so close to somebody and shoot them so many times, it has to be personal,” she said.
Rodriguez stated that there was “probably no explanation” for Dwumfour’s murder.
“Why would somebody do that? Somebody who has no heart, somebody who has no love for community, somebody who could have been jealous. It could have been many reasons why somebody would hurt somebody like her, who was such a beautiful soul, who loved everybody, who always smiled,” she added.
“She never said no. She would take her jacket off to give it to you. Her soul was so beautiful. She was such a light to everybody in the community. That is horrifying to even think of anybody trying to hurt her,” Rodriguez added.
