was knifed to death.
The Lubavitch mother of
four young children was

ederation officials an-
nounced Tuesday that
they had sold the Fred
Butzel Building in
downtown Detroit to the
Waycor Development Co.
The purchase price was not
disclosed.
Waycor is owned by
Donald Barden, who also
owns Barden Cablevision.
The Butzel Building, at
163 Madison, was the home
to the Jewish Federation of
Metropolitan Detroit for 40
years. In December, Federa-

tion moved its main ad-
ministrative offices to the
Max Fisher Building on
Telegraph Road near Maple
Road. The Butzel sale was
approved by Federation's
real estate committee two
months after Waycor made
an offer on the building.
' Discussions between Fed-
eration officials and Mr.
Barden had been going on
for about a year.
Some office space in the
building will be leased by
Waycor to the Federation,
the Jewish Community
Council, the Jewish Labor
Committee and the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee. 111
