Police Question Potential Witness In U-M Med Student’s Death
ANN ARBOR (WWJ/AP) - After a public appeal by police, a man has stepped forward to talk to investigators who are trying to solve the fatal shooting of a University of Michigan medical student.
Authorities, earlier Thursday, released a photo of a potential witness, spotted in 200 block of North Ingalls Street on July 23 — the same night 25-year-old Paul DeWolf was killed.
The picture was taken from security camera footage from a building in the area near the victim’s home in the Phi Rho Sigma medical fraternity house. It shows a young man with thick, shoulder length hair and wire rimmed glasses.
He appears to be talking on a cell phone.
Ann Arbor police Detective Lt. Robert Pfannes, in a statement, stressed that the man in the photo is only a potential witness, and is not considered a suspect in the case.
Det. Lt. Robert Pfannes said the man voluntarily went to the police department shortly after his photo was made public.
An autopsy showed DeWolf, a future surgeon, was killed by a single gunshot wound. His apartment was orderly and nothing of value appeared to be missing.
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the Ann Arbor Police tip line 734-794-6939. You can also email TIPS@a2gov.org, or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP.
