Police in South Carolina have arrested three black male suspects for the murder of Paul DeWolf. He was a 2nd Lieutenant in the military that was attending medical school. The victim was found dead inside his Ann Arbor, Michigan apartment of a gunshot wound. However, police say nothing appeared to be stolen and they do not believe the victim knew his killers. The murder appears to be purely a hate crime/thrill murder. The victim was undoubtedly targeted because he is white. He may have been killed execution style as the injury is described as “a single gunshot wound to the head.”
Since the victim is white, the media is using the standard “robbery gone wrong” euphemism. If the races were reversed, this would be a major news story and races of those involved would be listed in the headlines.
All three suspects were arrested in South Carolina. Two of the suspects have been identified. They are residents of North Charleston and Sumter. Police say one of them is also listed in the white pages for a residence in Michigan. Extradition hearings are planned for all three suspects.
