Last week, The Gateway Pundit reported on the slaying of  NJ GOP councilwoman Eunice Dwumfour.

Dwumfour, 30, was found deceased in her car with multiple gunshot wounds in Sayreville, the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office said.

One week later, the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office reported that New Jersey municipal council member Russell Heller was found shot dead in his car.

The New York Post reports:

Russell Heller, 51, was found dead just after 7 a.m. in the Somerset parking lot of PSE&G, the local energy company where the Milford Republican worked.

Cops quickly IDed a former employee, Gary Curtis, 58, as a suspect — and found him dead in his car from a suspected self-inflicted gunshot around three and a half hours after the slaying.

The councilman’s murder came exactly a week after Sayreville Councilwoman Dwumfour — also a Republican — was gunned down in her SUV outside her home about 15 miles away. Her murder remains unsolved.

Authorities have not linked the crimes, and the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office insisted that Heller’s murder appeared to be “an isolated incident.”

PSE&G released a statement following the news.
