The husband of April Kauffman, the well-known radio personality killed in her Linwood home last week, is fully cooperating with investigators, his attorney tells The Press of Atlantic City.
James Kauffman, a local endocrinologist, retained the services of Ed Jacobs after giving "a lengthy statement" to investigators after his wife was found dead Thursday, the attorney said this morning.
"Dr. Kauffman has done all that he could to assist in the investigation," Jacobs said.
April Kauffman, 47, was found at about 11 a.m. by a man who regularly came to feed her birds. She had been shot multiple times inside her bedroom. No one has been charged in the crime.
"Any good prosecutor will first direct an investigation toward eliminating spouses, boyfriends, girlfriends," Jacobs said of Dr. Kauffman being questioned.
"That's an obvious first step."
Jacobs said he has been in contact with the Atlantic County prosecutor, and indicated that "if there's a need for cooperation, I am ready, willing and able to do that."
"Once Dr. Kauffman is no longer speaking with the (Atlantic County) Prosecutor's Office, they will, I'm sure, move on to other phases of the investigation," Jacobs said. "They can expect our complete cooperation throughout."
There were several guns that the couple kept legally in the home, police have said, but Atlantic County Prosecutor Ted Housel has not commented on whether one was used in the killing. He also has said he is waiting to release the result of the completed autopsy.
The doctor's car was towed from the scene Friday.
