Three people are under arrest in connection with the murder of a University of Michigan medical student. Paul DeWolf was found shot to death in his campus apartment on July 24th.

Police say it does not appear DeWolf knew the three suspects before the night he died.

The suspects have not been formally charged yet, so no names have been released.

Ann Arbor Police Department News Release
November 7, 2013
 
Paul DeWolf Homicide Investigation
 
On July 24, 2013, the Ann Arbor Police responded to the 200 block of N. Ingalls where Paul DeWolf, a U of M medical school student and Air Force Second Lieutenant, was found deceased in his apartment. An autopsy revealed that he died from a gunshot wound. No firearm was recovered from the scene and his death was investigated as a homicide.
 
After an intensive investigation, the Ann Arbor Police Department has made three arrests. No other suspects are believed to be outstanding. There does not appear to be any previous affiliation between the suspects and Paul DeWolf nor any connection with the University of Michigan or the U.S. Air Force.
 
The suspects have not yet been charged and detectives are continuing to gather evidence and build the case. More information will be released regarding the suspects' identities once they have been arraigned.
Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the DeWolf Family. We would also like to thank Mr. and Mrs. DeWolf for their support of the Ann Arbor Police Department throughout this investigation. Their strength and their faith have inspired all who have worked on this case.
 
The entire Ann Arbor Police Department contributed in some manner to this investigation, but additional recognition must be given to the AAPD Detective Bureau, especially to the Supervisors and the Detectives in charge of this case. I would also like to thank the other law enforcement agencies who assisted the AAPD, in particular, the University of Michigan Police, the United States Marshals Service, the United States Air Force Office of Special Investigations, the FBI and the Washtenaw County Prosecutor's Office.
 
Our focus continues to be the successful conclusion of this incident and respect for the DeWolf Family. As the judicial process continues, we ask for everyone's patience. Additional information will be released as soon as it is appropriate.
 
Chief John Seto
Ann Arbor Police Department

     We get into the race for Governor and that open U.S. Senate seat with the two most political guys in Michigan. The chairmen of the state Republican and Democratic parties join us to talk issues and probably slinging a little mud. Plus, we'll talk to someone who's bringing a branch of the Satanic Temple to Detroit. What do they really believe in? (hint: it's not worshipping the devil)
