No new information is being released on the killing of well-known Linwood radio personality April Kauffman.
Kauffman, 47, was found shot to death May 10, in the bedroom of her Woodstock Avenue home. No one has been arrested in the crime.
An autopsy had been performed, but Atlantic County Prosecutor Ted Housel said he is not releasing the results because the nature of the wounds could help confirm who the killer is if he or she confesses. He also would not say how many times she was shot.
The investigation is continuing led by the prosecutor’s Major Crimes Unit with the assistance of the Linwood Police Department.
Kauffman and her husband, endocrinologist Dr. James Kauffman, were gun owners, but Housel did not say whether one of their guns was used in the fatal attack.
Kauffman was laid to rest Monday, where her husband spoke of her good work and how much he loved her.
James Kauffman has fully cooperated with investigators, attorney Ed Jacobs said. After giving a “lengthy statement” to detectives, Dr. Kauffman sought Jacobs’ advice due to the nature of the investigation, the lawyer said.
Jacobs pointed out that it is customary for an investigation to begin by working to exclude people close to the victim, such as a spouse.
“Once Dr. Kauffman is no longer speaking with the Prosecutor’s Office, they will, I’m sure, move on to other phases of the investigation,” Jacobs told The Press of Atlantic City on Tuesday.
