While speaking to the press, the deceased’s friends said one of the happiest days of her life was in December 2022, when she married Eze Kings in Nigeria.

Authorities said Dwumfour appeared to be the obvious target of the shooting and that a motive was yet to be determined.

Dwumfour had served the Borough of Sayrevillesince November 2021, when she ousted the sitting Democrat in a surprising election win. She was not up for re-election until 2024.
