Two sisters of Mary Wolfe, a Democratic state representative in Iowa, were found dead in the basement of their Pittsburgh home. NY Daily News reports Feb. 10 that the bodies of Susan Wolfe, 44, and Sarah Wolfe, 38 were discovered last Friday afternoon.

When the women did not show up for work, authorities were called and made a wellness check. They are treating the deaths as a double-homicide. No evidence of forced entry was detected at the home. Lt. Daniel Herrmann said there is no clear motive for the killings. The sisters of Mary Wolfe were going about life as usual on Thursday, according to the report. Susan showed up to work as normal at Hillel Academy. The academy's director, Dori Oshlag, called police when she did not arrive on Friday. Her body was discovered 1 p.m. that day.

Sarah's body was found next to her. She worked at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic. The women were pronounced dead at 1:48 p.m.

There was no mention as to whether or not the women being sisters to Mary Wolfe played a distinct role in this suspected double-homicide. As the investigation continues, authorities will certainly keep that possibility in mind.
