Police Need Your Help Finding This Woman’s Killer

The Wilmington Police Department’s Cold Case Unit is asking for the assistance of the public in connection to the 2013 murder of Samantha Neuwein.

On July 12, 2013, police responded to the 300 block of Shipley Street, and located 35-year-old Samantha Neuwein in her apartment suffering from multiple wounds. Investigators determined that she had been bludgeoned and stabbed inside her apartment above her family’s appliance business. She spent the next 16 days in a coma before succumbing to her injuries.
