The Kauffman House is for Rent

The home at 2 Woodstock Drive in Linwood is the former home of Dr. Jim and April Kauffman. If you are new to the area and you really don't keep up with the news, here's the catch.

April Kauffman was shot to death in the house in 2012, and, five years later, her husband was charged with hiring a motorcycle gang leader he was running an illegal drug ring with to kill her.

James Kauffman killed himself in jail before he could be brought to trial, but the motorcycle gang leader is doing life in prison for her murder and other charges.

The case was one of the most publicized ever in South Jersey and frequently made the national news.

What Happened to the House?

James Kauffman had unsuccessfully tried to sell the home since just after his wife's death in 2012.

To make a complicated legal story more simple , Kauffman lost the home to the bank during a 2017 foreclosure and the property has been on and off the market ever since.

The present owner has been renting the home, and a few weeks ago, 2 Woodstock Drive in Linwood again became available for rent.
