Police aren't releasing the man's name, or saying why they believe he may have helpful information about the slayings of Sarah and Susan Wolfe. They were found dead in the home they shared Feb. 7.

Wolfe and her sister Sarah Wolfe were found shot to death the following morning in the basement of the home they shared in the city's East Liberty neighborhood, police said. Authorities said they died of single gunshot wounds to their heads and there was no sign of forced entry into the home. Investigators found Sarah Wolfe's car parked nearly a mile away.
Sarah Wolfe was a psychiatrist for Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic. Susan Wolfe had recently moved to the area to live with her sister and worked as a teacher's aide at Hillel Academy in Pittsburgh's Squirrel Hill neighborhood. Another sister, Mary Wolfe, is a Democratic state representative from Clinton, Iowa.
Hundreds of people attended a funeral service on Friday in eastern Iowa for the slain sisters, who were remembered by relatives and friends as caring and helpful.
