A suspect is in custody in connection with the murder of Detroit synagogue president Samantha Woll, police said on Wednesday, ABC News reported.

Woll, President of the board of the Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue, was found dead outside her home with multiple stab wounds on her body on October 21.

Police did not release the suspect's name.

"The details of the investigation will remain confidential at this time to ensure the integrity of the important steps that remain," Detroit Police Chief James White said in a statement.

Though the arrest "is an encouraging development in our desire to bring closure for Ms. Woll's family, it does not represent the conclusion of our work in this case," he said.

The day after Woll’s body was found, White said that police continue to investigate the death of Woll and that "no evidence has surfaced suggesting that this crime was motivated by antisemitism."

Woll had a long career in local politics and worked with several elected officials over the years, according to her LinkedIn page.

She recently served as the political director for Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel's re-election campaign.

Woll also worked as a deputy district director for Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI).
