Didn't she have an altercation at one point where she even said she may be found dead. Or I am I thinking of another woman? I believe she had talked on the Alex Jones show or something? I can't remember but I think this was last year. She was in Washington at the time she had the altercation with the government or someone else. Not sure if she's the same person I'm thinking about.

Kauffman, who hosted a weekly talk radio program on WOND, was found around 11:30 a.m. Thursday by a worker who called 911. Kauffman reportedly lived with her husband, a physician, near the Jersey shore in Linwood, about 12 miles from Atlantic City. In a statement released to FoxNews.com, Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., said he was "incredibly shocked and saddened" to learn the news about Kauffman, known throughout the region as a fierce advocate for veterans.

From the linked article:



Neighbors reportedly told local station KYW-TV that when Kauffman's husband left her in the early morning Thursday, she was sleeping with a pillow over her face. Local media reports have identified the woman's husband as James Kauffman, an Egg Harbor Township-based endocrinologist.

WTF? Okay was it the 'neighbors' who reported Kaufman was "sleeping with a pillow over her face" (if so, how do they know?), or was it the husband who said this?

Also, what does this add to the story besides possible accusations against the husband? So, what did the neighbors say? Was this normal for her to sleep with a pillow over her face?

So confused! Ugh, media incompetence!

Edited to add:

Arrest Appears Likely in NJ

Well, looks like the police may have enough to make an arrest; although, they are keeping tight-lipped about who that may be, other than stating that it doesn't appear to have anything to do with her radio show.

Yeah, it's probably the husband. Any wagers?

yeah, way to go sourgrapes! these are all the questions I had about this as well. I thought I was crazy or maybe misreading because I couldn't see how the headlines talked about the husband but the text never mentioned anything about him. and I was equally confused about the neighbors saying she was asleep with a pillow over her face... wtf?

I can't remember where I saw that though. She was a blonde lady and I'm not sure if was Alex Jones show or not. But she was on the steps outside of Washington being interviewed.

Hi sour
I wanted to repost your link and thank you again as it is still the most comprehensive news so far.
cheersljb

PS I am also shocked that this news has not reached the ATS military members.
Perhaps I missed an opurtunity to post her Veterans work in the OP.

It was a long time ago. I don't remember where I saw it. Maybe it dealt with 9/11 instead. I don't know. Really sorry guys. Just her name seems so familiar and I just can't place it. Such a tragedy. She was really beautiful.

I found this this morning it has a little more detail.

Funeral today for NJ radio host April Kauffman
Updated at 09:27 AM today
Action News 6abc.com
LINWOOD, N.J. - May 14, 2012 (WPVI) -- The funeral will be held today for a businesswoman and radio show host who was known widely as an advocate for military veterans.


April Kauffman, 47, was found dead Thursday in the bedroom of her Linwood home, the victim of multiple gunshot wounds. Authorities say a handyman made the discovery.

The day before her death, she co-hosted "The King Arthur Show" on radio station WIBG, a show she had appeared on weekly for at least several months. But the prosecutor said the killing apparently had nothing to do with her work on the radio.


Related Content
Atlantic County Prosecutor Theodore Housel suggested Friday that an arrest was likely, though he didn't say how soon or provide any information about a possible suspect.

"We have sufficient information to conduct an ongoing investigation that we believe will ultimately be successful," he said.

Kauffman friends and associates said she owned a catering business and a hair salon but was best known in the area for her support of veterans, including on-air. Her husband, James Kauffman, is a practicing endocrinologist in Linwood, The Press of Atlantic City reported.

"She just had an incredible personality. She could never say no to any charity or anything. The kind of person who would give you the shirt off her back," her radio show co-host, Arthur Gropper, said.

Gropper said Kauffman was in a jovial mood Wednesday, with no indication anything was troubling her. He said they were celebrating progress on veterans issues and she was talking about wanting to work with homeless veterans.

Until February, she had also hosted a weekly talk show on radio station WOND.

Donna Clementoni, a friend and fellow veterans advocate from Egg Harbor Township, told The Press that Kauffman sent her an email around 1:50 a.m. Thursday about an event the two were planning. She said she tried to reach Kauffman about 9 a.m. but couldn't.

"I have no idea why anyone would do this. She's like a local legend. She's outspoken. She's like a bombshell and all she ever wanted to do was help people," Clementoni said.

Kauffman held a Thanksgiving dinner at her home each year for about 50 recruits from the Cape May U.S. Coast Guard Training Center. Last year, she was a key organizer of a successful petition drive to allow veterans to use an area hospital rather than having to travel to a Veterans Affairs hospital in Delaware, the newspaper said.

Just a few days before her death she also received a governor's award for outstanding community service.

No one will ever understand the PURE EVIL of this dastardly deed.
Not until they have a loved one in a VA hospital.
Or help a VET that retains his dignity although he left to many body
parts in a land he never dreamed of a few years before.
I did not know April but I know the military has claimed finding Osama.
Shame on them if they don't find this perp.

This is all that is new
