Black Lives Still Matter, Con't

Black Lives Still Matter. Even Republican ones, as a Black New Jersey Borough Councilwoman, Eunice Dwumfour, was found dead from multiple gunshot wounds last night.
Eunice K. Dwumfour, a 30-year-old councilwoman serving her first term in Sayreville, N.J., was fatally shot on Wednesday night, officials said.

The authorities said they received reports of a shooting at 7:22 p.m. in Parlin, an unincorporated area of Sayreville, according to a statement by the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office. Officers with the Sayreville Police Department found Ms. Dwumfour in her car with multiple gunshot wounds. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The authorities did not say whether there is a suspect in the crime and have not offered any information about a possible motive. An investigation is ongoing.

Victoria Kilpatrick, the mayor of Sayreville, said in a statement that “the fact that she was taken from us by a despicable criminal act makes this incident all the more horrifying.”

Gov. Phil Murphy of New Jersey said he was “stunned” by the “act of gun violence,” adding that Ms. Dwumfour “had already built a reputation as a committed member of the Borough Council who took her responsibility with the utmost diligence and seriousness.”

Sayreville, with a population of about 45,000 people, is in Middlesex County, about 30 miles south of New York City.

Ms. Dwumfour was elected to the Sayreville Borough Council in 2021 after she and another Republican candidate, Christian Onuoha, unseated two Democratic incumbents on the six-person council. She was serving a three-year term.
She was murdered and found in her crashed SUV outside her own home. Really no doubt as to what happened, but who killed her?
Now, the Right-Wing Noise Machine is already calling this an "Antifa assassination" and all, but the suspect needs to be brought to justice. Her life mattered.

Black Lives Still Matter.
