    April Kauffman, a well-known business woman and radio host is found shot to death inside her Linwood, NJ home. Police are calling it a homicide, but have made no arrests.

    The Atlantic County prosecutor says police are working toward making an arrest in the fatal shooting of a radio show host known widely as an advocate for veterans.

    Prosecutor Theodore Housel said Friday police have enough information to believe they are on a path to solving the killing of 47-year-old April Kauffman of Linwood. But he is providing no other details at this time.

    Kauffman was found shot multiple times in the bedroom of her home. Housel says a handyman discovered her body late Thursday morning.

    Kauffman owned a catering business and hair salon but also hosted a couple of different radio shows, including one the day before her death.
