    911 Call From Man Who Found Body of Radio Host Released
    On the morning of May 10 2012, April Kauffman, 47, was found dead inside her home on Woodstock Drive in Linwood, New Jersey.

    More than a year after a well-known South Jersey radio host was murdered in her home the Atlantic County prosecutor says he can’t put a time frame on when an arrest may come.

    April Kauffman, 47, was found shot to death in her Lindwood, New Jersey home in May 2012. From the beginning sources say they did not believe the murder was random, although authorities have provided very little official information.

    Kauffman was a local radio personality, who often co-hosted a show on WOND 1400 A.M.  She was found dead in her bedroom on May 10 -- shot multiple times.

    Acting prosecutor Jim McClain said during an interview Friday that the case remains active and investigators are working it every day.

    “Nobody’s been arrested yet because we don’t have sufficient evidence to prove a case in court. When that occurs, then we will make an arrest,” said McClain.

    Final Goodbye to Murdered Radio Host

    [PHI] Friends, Family, Vets Honor Murdered Radio Host
    Services were held Monday morning for April Kauffman, the well-known New Jersey business owner, radio host and veteran advocate who was found dead in her bedroom last week.

    McClain would not comment when asked if there are any suspects or people of interest in the case.

    Kauffman and her husband, Dr. James Kauffman were living in the home when she was killed. At her funeral, Dr. Kauffman professed his love for April, "I love and miss you so much. I don't know what to do without you. I hope to be with you soon. Love, Jim." He retained a lawyer one day after her murder.

    In  May 2013, Kauffman’s daughter, Kimberly Pack, told NBC10 said she hoped police were doing everything they could to find the person (s) who killed her mother.

    “I do believe that they’re making progress. I don’t know exactly what that progress is, but I do believe that, based on different things," said Pack. “Every day I wake up, I hope that it’s going to be today. I don’t think I necessarily get disappointed when it’s not. I just know that people are working hard to get something done.”

    Kauffman is also remembered as a long-time volunteer of Operation Fireside, inviting Coast Guard recruits from Cape May into her home for Thanksgiving dinner.
