Gov. Phil Murphy has ordered flags to fly at half-staff on Wednesday in remembrance of Eunice Dwumfour, a 30-year-old Sayreville councilwoman who was murdered in a shooting outside her home around 7:22 PM on February 1.
“It is with deep sadness that we mourn the passing of Eunice Dwumfour,” Murphy said. “Her death is a tragic loss for her family, friends, the Sayreville community, and our state. Tammy and I continue to pray for her loved ones and those who were fortunate enough to know her as they grieve during this difficult time. Our flags will fly at half-staff on Wednesday to honor her on the day of her memorial.”
Funeral services for Dwumfour will be held on February 8.
In a statement issued late Friday, the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s office said that the “investigation is still active and ongoing.” There have been no announcements about the progress of the probe.
The New Jersey Globe reported that law enforcement officials were looking at Dwumfour’s role as a pastor at Champion Royal Assemblies, a Nigerian-based church.
