A man who was held in custody in connection with the stabbing death of prominent Detroit Jewish community leader Samantha Woll has been released, his attorney said Saturday, according to NBC News.

The person, whose identity has not been released, had been taken into custody Wednesday in Kalamazoo, about 140 miles west of Detroit, authorities said.

Detroit police and a spokesperson for the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment Saturday.

The Detroit Free Press reported that as of Friday afternoon, the prosecutor’s office said it had not received a warrant request in the killing of Woll.

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.

Early in the investigation, police said there was no evidence to suggest her slaying was a hate crime, and authorities reiterated this week that they still don’t believe it was a bias attack.

On Wednesday when announcing an arrest had been made, White said that details about the case were being kept confidential “to ensure the integrity of the important steps that remain.”

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).
