PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Police continue to investigate the double murder of two sisters in Pittsburgh’s East Liberty neighborhood.

The women’s bodies were found around 12:45 p.m. Friday in a home in the 700-block of Chislett Street.

KDKA’s Ralph Iannotti Reports:

The victims have been identified by neighbors as Dr. Sarah Wolfe – who worked at UPMC as a psychiatrist – and her sister, Susan Wolfe, a teacher’s aide at a Squirrel Hill day care center.

Lt. Daniel Herrmann, of the Pittsburgh Police, said the women were found in the basement of their home.

When one of the women didn’t show up for work, the police received a call for a well being check and that’s how their bodies were discovered.

“One of the women didn’t show up for work this morning,” said Lt. Herrmann. “There was a call to police to check on their well being. Police came here and met a friend of theirs who let them in the home and once inside they discovered the two women.”

Lt. Herrmann said there was no sign of forced entry and nothing appeared to be out of place in the home.

Police were on the lookout for a 2011, green Ford Fiesta, which was owned by Dr. Wolfe.

It was reported missing.

However, the car was located overnight on South Whitefield Street in East Liberty, not far from the sisters’ home..

KDKA’s Harold Hayes Reports:

UPMC released a statement saying, in part, that Dr. Wolfe was a “compassionate, warm, caring and bright physician.”

Anyone with information is being asked to call police.
