Authorities reported that an SUV outside the residence of a New Jersey borough council member was found to be filled with bullet wounds.
According to the Middle county prosecutor’s office, the 30-year-old Eunice Dwumfour was discovered on Wednesday at around 7.20 p.m. She had received many gunshot wounds and was declared dead right away.
Dwumfour, a Republican, defeated an incumbent Democrat in 2021 to win her first three-year term. Coworkers remembered her as a gentle, devout Christian who could remain calm under pressure.
She was a woman in her 30s. The county GOP chairwoman who managed her campaign, Karen Bailey Bebert, said, “Our hearts are absolutely devastated to have this happen in such a sad way. Everyone wants an explanation. We are thus anticipating with bated breath.
Authorities have not announced any arrests or said whether they suspect the killing may have had a personal, political, or random purpose. Dwumfour portrayed herself as a proud alumnus of the Newark public schools who went on to William Paterson University to acquire a degree in women’s studies while working part-time as an EMT.
After graduating, she claimed she moved to Sayreville’s Parlin neighborhood “because of the incredible public safety job the community conducts.” She was motivated by this passion for running for council, where she worked as a liaison to the police force, currently looking into her death. Bebert stated, “She just wanted to improve our neighborhood for all our kids.

Bebert stated that Dwumfour, who has a child in school, revealed her recent marriage at the fall council meeting. She claimed to be involved in her Newark-area church.
According to her LinkedIn profile, Dwumfour works in information technology. Last month, she announced her employment search. According to her resume, she worked for a Christian nonprofit organization for six years.
Chyann Brown, her next-door neighbor, claimed she returned home on Wednesday night as cops were “flying in the complex.” She didn’t know that Dwumfour had been shot; she described him courteous and respectful.
There were shot casings all over the place when I arrived to park my car. When she saw it, she referred to Dwumfour’s automobile as still moving down the street.
Brown claimed that despite speaking with Dwumfour several times during the previous year, she was unaware of her involvement in neighborhood politics. She is a lovely lady. She always looks nice,” the woman remarked. I find it hard to think she would be a part of something so sad.
The Democratic governor, Phil Murphy, and other prominent state officials released remarks expressing their sorrow over her passing. She had communicated with John Wisniewski, a former Sayreville resident and Democrat in the state assembly.
“She almost always talked about God and divine providence. She was a devout woman, according to Wisniewski. Dwumfour was an outgoing individual, according to Bebert, who “always had that wonderful smile on her face that you see in her image.”
Sayreville, a borough with over 45,000 residents, is located 48.2 kilometers (about 30 miles) south of Manhattan. Another vehicle in the parking lot at the location on Thursday appeared to have been damaged by Dwumfour’s vehicle.
Bebert characterized Sayreville as a tranquil neighborhood and stated Dwumfour resided in a lovely complex close to an elementary school. She wants to put together a vigil to honor “a life cut too short by such a horrific criminal act.” She said, “She was so young.” It is simply reverberating throughout the town.
