Detroit police are investigating after a Detroit synagogue board president was found dead outside her home early Saturday.

Police have not released the victim's name. However, just after 2:00p.m. on Saturday, Detroit's Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue announced the death of synagogue Board President Samantha Woll on Facebook.

"We are shocked and saddened to learn of the unexpected death of Samantha Woll, our Board President. At this point we do not have more information, but will share more when it becomes available," synagogue officials said.

"May her memory be a blessing," they added.

Founded in 1921, the Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue is a nondenominational synagogue. Two years ago, it held a centennial celebration which doubled as a groundbreaking for an ambitious expansion project.
