WNYC launches Dead End podcast


WNYC Studios launches DEAD END: A New Jersey Political Murder Mystery – a seven-part investigative series into the unsolved murder of John and Joyce Sheridan. The show, which will begin on April 26, will be hosted by WNYC Senior Reporter Nancy Solomon.

On September 28, 2014, former New Jersey Transportation Commissioner John Sheridan was found dead along with his wife Joyce Sheridan at their home in Skillman, New Jersey. The couple were prominent Republican donors who had connections to some of the most powerful people in the state, including former Gov. Chris Christie. Both suffered multiple stab wounds and their house was set on fire. Although authorities initially ruled it a murder-suicide, the Sheridans’ eldest son, Mark, is plagued with questions and doubts, and takes it upon himself to seek the truth – but encounters obstacles at every turn.

Solomon – who has covered New Jersey politics for two decades – takes over the investigation from Mark. Through interviews with former governors, attorneys general, police detectives and a prosecutor who helped take down the New Jersey mob, “DEAD END” examines how the death of such a politically connected couple could be ignored by major law enforcement agencies and left unsolved.
