Photo Credit: AP/PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTETwo sisters of an Iowa state representative have been found dead of apparent gunshot wounds in the Pittsburgh home they shared in what police are investigating as a double homicide.

The bodies of 44-year-old Susan Wolfe and 38-year-old Sarah Wolfe were found Friday afternoon in their basement after they didn’t show up for work, authorities said. Police found Sarah Wolfe’s car around 1:15 a.m. Saturday parked nearly a mile away.

Pittsburgh police Lt. Daniel Herrmann said they don’t have a motive for the killings, and there were no signs of forced entry. The two sisters died of single gunshot wounds to the head, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

The Allegheny County medical examiner said Sunday that the two women sustained “other injuries,” but didn’t elaborate. He also wouldn’t answer whether the women were sexually assaulted, the Post-Gazette reported.

Sarah Wolfe was a psychiatrist for Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, and Susan Wolfe was a teacher’s aide at Hillel Academy in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood.
