April Kauffman, a gorgeous radio talk show host, has been found dead. This is so strange and tragic. Who would so such a thing? Actually, I already have an idea of who could have done this in my head. Find out more on the murder mystery here…
A local radio talk show host who had a weekly talk radio program on WOND and was known for her activism on veterans’ issues has been found shot dead in her home near the Jersey shore.
April Kauffman was found at around 11:30 a.m. on Thursday by a worker who called 911, according to Atlantic County Prosecutor Ted Housel.
Housel said the 47-year-old had been shot numerous times in the bedroom of her home in Linwood, about 12 miles from Atlantic City.
Harry Hurley, who did several radio broadcasts with Kauffman, told The Press of Atlantic City that Kauffman ‘Did the work of 100 people.’ He was shocked that somebody who did so much to help other people would be murdered so viciously.
Hurley told CBS:
‘I can’t think of anybody that would want to do harm to April because all she ever did was help people and she didn’t do it in a way that she have garnered any enemies.’
US Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) told the network:
‘Quite simply, April was a patriot in every sense of the word and her tireless work on behalf of those who served made a real difference in the lives of many.’
April Kauffman had recently been awarded the New Jersey Governor’s Jefferson Award for outstanding contribution to the community, according to the Press of Atlantic City.
Neighbors told CBS that they witnessed Kauffman’s physicist husband arriving at the murder scene yesterday, saying his wife was asleep when he went to work early that morning.
The prosecutor’s office and the Linwood Police Department are investigating. No arrests have been made.
