PITTSBURGH (KDKA)– A Facebook photo of the Wolfe family from several years ago shows the whole clan — eight in all — smiling.

But now there are two less. Dr. Sarah Wolfe and her sister Susan Wolfe were killed sometime between Thursday evening and Friday afternoon in the home they shared on Chislett Street in East Liberty.

Each had a gunshot wound to the head.

Today flowers remember the murdered sisters.

“It’s definitely a shock,” said Sam Weinberg, Principal of Hillel Academy.

Police aren’t releasing many details about the investigation. Dr. Wolfes’ car, a lime green Ford Fiesta, was found about a mile away on South Whitefield Street, hours after the bodies were discovered.

Police are hoping surveillance cameras yield more information.

Sarah Wolfe worked at as a psychiatrist for Western Psych. Susan Wolfe was a teachers aid at Hillel Academy in Squirrel Hill, where today grief counselors were on hand to try and help students process the magnitude of the tragedy.

“She was really great. All the kids loved her they’re going to miss her,” said Weinberg.

Friends say the Chislett Street home had been broken into at least once before, but police won’t comment on whether there is any connection to that incident and the violent confrontation that took place there on Friday.

Friends say the focus now has to be Susan’s students and the Wolfe family.

“The whole Pittsburgh community has come to our doorstep to help out,” said Weinberg.
