Community stunned as elected Republican falls victim to one horrific crime

Crime has trended in the wrong direction over the past few years.

Public safety has become a major concern for many voters.

But a community is stunned after an elected Republican falls victim to one horrific crime.

The police and the FBI are investigating the murder of New Jersey Councilwoman Eunice Dwumfour, who was gunned down in her car outside her home.

The murder appeared to be a targeted hit, as Dwumfour was shot multiple times from close range.

Witnesses said they heard two sets of four gunshots.

Dwumfour’s SUV rolled downhill and crashed into parked cars on the street.

A neighbor told the press, “They looked outside and they saw someone running into the woods, which leads to the parkway.”

Witnesses supposedly saw someone wearing a hoodie run between two buildings and jump a fence.

Governor Phil Murphy wrote in a statement, “I am stunned by the news of Sayreville Councilwoman Eunice Dwumfour’s murder last evening in an act of gun violence. Her career of public service was just beginning, and by all accounts she had already built a reputation as a committed member of the Borough Council who took her responsibility with the utmost diligence and seriousness. I send my condolences to Councilwoman Dwumfour’s family and friends, her governing body colleagues, and the entire Sayreville community.”

Shot dead in front of her home

Dwumfour first took office in January 2021.

Middlesex County Prosecutor Yolanda Ciccone said that Dwumfour’s politics don’t seem to be a motive at this time.

Murphy added, “Sayreville is a proud, tight-knit, and safe community and I know that it will come together, as it always has, in common purpose. The New Jersey State Police are supporting the ongoing investigation, and I urge anyone with information to contact either the Sayreville Police or the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office.”

Eze Kings, Dwumfour’s husband, posted a strange message on Facebook, wishing his wife a happy birthday even though it’s a month away.

He wrote, “4th March is your birthday happy glorious birthday in addy my love.”

New Jersey Republican Party Chairman Bob Hugin said in a statement, “We will remember Eunice for her steadfast dedication to the community, as well as her deep and abiding Christian faith. We have the utmost confidence that law enforcement will bring the perpetrators of this heartbreaking tragedy to justice. God Bless Councilwoman Dwumfour and her family.”

Crime has become a major concern for Americans around the country.

According to a Gallup poll, for the first time since 1972, a majority of U.S. adults (56%) said there is more crime in their local area than there was the year prior.
