SAYREVILLE, New Jersey (WABC) -- As they investigate for her killer, a team of detectives are looking into every part of Sayreville Councilwoman Eunice Dwumfour's life, including her personal, professional, and religious activities.

The Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office and the Sayreville Police Department are currently "engaged" in the inquiry.

"We are aware of the inquiry into Councilwoman Dwumfour's death, which occurred in Sayreville on Wednesday night. We have spoken with the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office and the Sayreville Police Department, two of our neighborhood's law enforcement agencies. We will provide whatever assistance they want if it would benefit their investigation, "in a statement, the FBI.

Just before 7:30 p.m., the 30-year-old was discovered inside her white Nissan SUV on Samuel Circle with several gunshot wounds, according to authorities. They estimate that her automobile traveled roughly 100 feet before striking two parked vehicles.

Outside of Dwumfour's home at the Camelot at La Mer apartment building, her life came to an end. Dwumfour, a native of Newark who still has relatives there, resided in Sayreville as a single mother. She had just tied the knot with a Nigerian preacher.

Investigators are now looking into her connections to that church as well as her other personal and business affiliations.

"She was content with her new spouse." It appears. She was content with her daughter and enjoying the American dream. "She was a kind, driven individual who excelled in the community," Karen Bailey Bebert, a former campaign manager for Dwumfour, said. "I think her daughter brought light to her life. She was transformed by Jesus Christ. She was tenacious and determined. "She was like a bright star."

Police searched for the murder weapon in the woods behind the apartment complex after receiving a tip that prompted them to send police dogs there.
