"I think she would have said to me. About three weeks ago. Okay. What are your memories of your parents and their relationship with each other at that time when you were a kid growing up in the house? They were always together. At the time of his parents deaths, Mark Sheridan was the lawyer for Chris Christie's campaign for governor. And he also represented the state Republican Party. He and his brothers didn't believe the detectives murder suicide theory. Especially after they were allowed to enter the house and see the crime scene. A mess that you can't even be in the fathom. There are feathers everywhere. Everything is out of every space in the room and there's all over the floor. And the bathroom is full of stuff. I guess when the fire happens, they're putting it out and they're just once it's out to throwing stuff into the bathroom. The Sheridan brothers also noticed there's no fingerprint dust. And the blood soaked rug where their father died, was rolled up in the hallway, raising questions about whether blood or DNA samples were taken. They decided to hire Michael bott. He's an independent medical examiner with 50 years experience. His resume is 18 pages long. Biden conducted a second autopsy on John Sheridan's body. Next door to the Museum of Modern Art. I went to see this legendary medical examiner. It is apartment building in midtown Manhattan. We met in his building's conference room. He had kept detailed notes from the autopsy. What I found is one of the wounds that struck the jugular vein, that was a fatal wound, was made by a what I describe as Toledo like instrument and went into the body for about two inches or so. A thin, stiletto. Not a large carving knife with a wide blade, not the same knife that killed Joyce. Biden's assessment is, that's not a hesitation wound. That's a wound made by a very different kind of knife. But the detectives think John's wounds were inflicted with one of the knives they found in the bedroom. There were two. A big carving knife and a serrated bread knife. Nothing the shape or size of a stiletto. Usually when people commit suicide using a sharp weapon, the weapon is found at the scene. I can't imagine a circumstance in which someone kills themselves with a knife and the knife is not there, so is there any circumstance for that could happen? Well, yes, you know, one can find all kinds of odd things. I had one situation where a person attached a knife to some kind of a bungee like cord that stamped himself in the bungee cord, then tossed it out of the window. So odd things can happen. Okay, odd things can happen. But suffice it to say the knife matching the wounds to John Sheridan was never found. I haven't solved this murder. At least not yet. But I'm rattling a few cages. And the person who's done more than anyone to unravel this mystery is Mark Sheridan. When I was walking up the stairs one day, I just happened to notice that there was blood all over the wall on the right, and it was high cast in certain direction and it was dripping down. I sent that to a photo of that, I think, the Baden. And the family's medical examiner sends the photo to a blood analysis lab. And they came back more like that's blood spatter. That is evidence of where the stabbings took place. And then when you measured it out, it matched pretty closely where wounds were on my left side of my father's body. So it at least suggests that he was stabbed at the very top of the stairs. When the detectives first arrived at the Sheridan house, they thought the blood in the stairwell was from firefighters carrying Joyce's body down the stairs. But the blood splatter is different from those stains. It's higher and not smeared. Family believes. So I put this theory to Barry Janssen, one of the first forensic technicians on the scene. And so he was could have been partially incapacitated from the start. I don't think so with the type of blood spatter that I saw there, if it was one of the wounds that mister Sheridan had received, even it was the neck wound, there were no hand prints, it was more consistent with bloody hair, maybe some clothing. There was nothing that jumped out at me and said, hey, wait a minute, this isn't right. This doesn't add up. The Sheridan family had the blood tested, and the splatter on the wall was their father's blood. There's also soot on the walls from the fire. The question is, was the soot on top of the blood or the other way around? But the detectives didn't carefully photograph the stairwell. If I make a mistake, I'll own the mistake and I'll own the mistake that I didn't document that blood staining on the wall. That was something that I should have done even though I was told not to. If I had to do over, I would definitely do it. Janssen had been told by his captain to disregard the bloodstains. Evidently, the firefighters had reported to detectives that there were no bloodstains on the wall until they carried Joyce's body out. So walking into the house, it was actually very orderly, everything was in place. Barbara Boyer was the crime reporter at the Philadelphia inquirer at the time. Mark Sheridan invited her to tour the house, and she brought a veteran homicide detective. Eddie rocks. When they went upstairs, they saw the blood spatter. Eddie rocks immediately pointed that out. And he said, this is indicative of someone who was stabbed here. When you see a blood splatter, that shows direction. Usually you see the splatters where there's a confrontation. Where there's movement. And so what did it look like to you? I can't say. I have no idea how that happened. I don't know what was the confrontation at one point at the top of the stairs. And I went back into the bedroom. Another detail about the crime scene was something quite simple. Frankly, it was obvious, but it went unnoticed by the first detectives to arrive. This is the front door to the house. When I sat down with the newspaper reporter, barb boy before I could ask her a single question, she drew me a diagram on the back of an envelope. There's a back door over here. Dining room is like over here. And this is the mud room right here with the back stairs that come down, right? Right.

"Without giving away too much of the podcast is it fair to say that you're reporting has shown the investigation into the deaths of John and Joyce Sheridan At first thought to be murder suicide I should say that it was a sloppy investigation Is that accurate Well yeah I mean I talked to a broad array of people who do believe the investigation was sloppy and that the detectives suffered from coming to too quick of an analysis of the crime scene and that their analysis was wrong We outlined some of the striking details of how many things they got wrong So I'm curious about your motivation going into this One would think that you went in thinking I'm going to solve this murder Did you think you would and did you project the attorney general's response I wanted to solve it but I wasn't sure I would be able to And I think in terms of the AG investigation the fact that we produced the last episode that laid out a case for why the investigation should be reopened and we had to rip that up that kind of tells you where we were headed And we had a lot of people saying that the investigation should be reopened Police detectives journalists John Jay criminal of justice experts lawyers former governor So there was a lot of people that I had talked to who wanted this investigation opened and that happened So you mentioned all of the interviews you've done in this and it must have taken you forever to gather all of that It was a bit I mean it involved a lot of white boards and diagrams and tons of documents I had kind of backed into this whole story because in 2019 I had worked on a yearlong project that was a collaboration with WNYC and ProPublica And I started looking at the power of political machines and that led to what became really a yearlong investigation into what was happening on the Camden water front with land deals and corporate tax breaks My reporting partner Jeff Pilates and I were talking to developers and redevelopment groups and we stumbled into the John Sheridan connection to those deals on the waterfront So Jeff reached out to mark Sheridan's son of John Sheridan the victim in this true crime story And we started talking to him And by the end of 2019 I felt really strongly that this was a story that needed to be retold in the context of what was going on at the waterfront at the time in 2014 So you mentioned Mark Sheridan To the podcast and to your work on the podcast I'm wondering how that relationship with him was developed because I would assume there would have to be a certain level of trust there And it's curious to me now how you did that especially in an age when there's a lot of distrust around the media Mark did do an incredible amount of work trying to figure out who killed his parents He's a well-known attorney in New Jersey and he used to do a lot of legal work for the state Republican Party And he talks about how he would do his very long day job and then he would sit up nights poring over autopsy reports and crime scene photos And to be honest I'm not sure how I managed to convince him to trust me to go down this road But I think some of the reporting that Jeff pellets and I did in 2019 helped that along And I guess there was a little bit of a persistence on my part talking to him for a couple of years about it to the point where he agreed to do and on the record taped interview Thanks so much for your insights to Nancy I really appreciate it Thanks so much.

"A new development in the unsolved killings of a prominent New Jersey couple found dead at home in 2014 The New Jersey attorney general has opened an investigation into the deaths of John and Joyce Sheridan The case has received renewed attention after the release of a podcast from WNYC studios dead end a New Jersey political murder mystery Reported hosted that podcast Nancy Solomon joins us now Nancy good morning Good morning Michael How are you I'm doing well How about you Is this a new investigation by the attorney general Or the reopening of an old one This is new The four sons of John and Joyce Sheridan asked the state attorney general to get involved several times since their parents deaths first because they agreed with disagreed with the county prosecutors offices initial theory which was that John Sheridan had killed his wife and then himself But also because an independent medical examiner determined that the knife that killed John Sheridan was missing That was the first time they asked the attorney general to intervene They asked a second time when several other mistakes by county detectives were discovered and a third time when the couple's oldest son brought documents to the attorney general that had been left on the dining room table the night the sheridans were killed those documents detail a multi-million dollar real estate deal on the Camden waterfront that involved powerful political interests in New Jersey but 5 successive attorneys general never intervened So Nancy I'm curious what has changed here Well there is a new attorney general Matt platkin He was nominated by governor Phil Murphy in February I don't really know what's behind the decision All I know is that over the last couple of years I've tried to get the current and former attorneys generals to speak with me about the decision About not to intervene in the case And all I got was crickets A couple of weeks ago I started hearing from a few people that they'd been contacted by a state investigator I reached out to the AG and his office actually responded confirming the investigation in a one line email Our office is investigating this matter and we will follow the evidence wherever it leads Now what can you tell us about who their contacting and what the investigation is looking into I know that a state investigator and an FBI agent interviewed a couple who were close friends of John and Joyce Sheridan I had interviewed them for the podcast and then I spoke with them last week after I'd gotten the investigation confirmed Chris Stevens had told the huge crowd that attended the Sheridan's memorial in 2014 that she had had a three hour lunch with Joyce just a day and a half before the sheridans died And then she and her husband bob were really surprised that after saying that to at the memorial that detectives never interviewed Chris about what Joyce had to say at their lunch That was 2014 The interview Chris did recently was pretty much about that lunch how Joyce seemed and whether there had been any trouble in her marriage Chris said absolutely there wasn't She said she's happy that state and federal investigators are finally asking questions We really would risk easier If we knew that everything was resolved on this it would be very comforting knowing that they finally figured out what the story was Nancy has the shared and family said anything about the opening of this investigation Yeah I talked with Mark Sheridan At first he didn't really believe anything would be done But when I told him that Chris and bob Stephens had actually been interviewed that quickly changed his mind Until you just told me that I didn't know for certain that the attorney general's office was actually reopening the investigation was doing anything So I'm happy to hear that they've started to reach out to people I didn't know that But I certainly think it's a good start It's been what more than 7 years now since the sheridans were killed Do you think the case can be solved Michaela I think it's going to be extremely difficult I don't know what's in the original investigative files from Somerset county Did they obtain surveillance video of cars coming and going from the neighborhood Can DNA be extracted from anything that's been kept or stored The problem is that from everything I've been able to find out the Somerset county detectives believed so fervently that it was a murder suicide that they didn't do much investigating And now 7 and a half years later it's certainly a very cold case But some cold cases do get solved So this is a very significant development Nancy Salomon is a senior reported WNYC in the house of the podcast dead end a New Jersey political murder mystery Nancy thank you Thanks Michael It's morning edition from NPR news I'm Ian Martinez And I'm Leila Fulton This is the sound of COVID-19 COVID's DNA code was loaded into a computer and interpreted as music The person behind this is Mark temple a microbiologist in Sydney Australia I'm both a musician and a scientist so I thought I'm well placed here to actually approach this from a different angle No one's really done this He developed a computer algorithm that assigns musical notes to DNA sequences and he says it could help save lives I heard about this thing called sonification It's a way of using audio to analyze or to represent data So I thought well could I get some DNA data and make audio from that Generally computers display DNA as lines and lines of letters Each letter represents a module in the DNA sequence But there are hundreds of thousands of letters in the sequence Slack trying to read a book that has no punctuation so doctor.

about the cold case and what has happened since the night of this what happened to the sheridans I'm just curious what are the reasonable expectations if a knight that was there to see as you say is nowhere to be found Right I mean I'm not sure what you're asking exactly Are they going to find the knife Maybe not likely but let's not forget There's this other case going on in New Jersey Sean cattle a political operative hired two hitmen to murder a fellow political consultant in New Jersey in Jersey City And in that case George Brett is one of the hitmen was arrested Now that murder in Jersey City was four months before the sheridans on the day after the Sheridan's died George Brits and the hitmen was arrested in Connecticut not that far from New York with for a bank robbery and he had a kitchen knife in his car So I don't know anything about that kitchen knife There was a kitchen knife missing from the Sheridan house Has that knife been tested Is there any blood or DNA on it Are they going to be able to make any connections between those two cases which are just eerily similar We don't know But at least for now the family is very happy that actual professional investigators are reopened the case Nancy Salman is a senior reporter WNYC in the.

"Possible So brigida told me her family's keeping their bags packed so they can flee quickly if the Russian army does break through NPR's Brian man in Odessa thank you Thank you Before 2020 ever every modern presidential candidate who lost eventually conceded Just moments ago I spoke with George W. Bush and congratulated him on becoming the 43rd president of the United States I have just called president Obama to congratulate him on his victory Last night I congratulated Donald Trump and offered to work with him on behalf of our country But it's been a year and a half since voting ended and Donald Trump still hasn't done the same The question now is whether other candidates will follow suit in 2022 and 2024 NPR's miles parks covers voting and joins us now Hey miles Hey Elsa Okay so how do you think Trump's refusal to concede could change the norms in future elections So looking ahead at the midterms it's turned this thing a candidate admitting they lost from something that was basically a given into a very real question mark It's important to remember here that concession is not written into law anywhere It's not required I talked about that with amel Ahmed who's a political science professor at the university of Massachusetts Amherst She said the U.S. has taken concession for granted because the country is also taken the idea of a peaceful transfer of power for granted and a concession is a big part of that Any of us study democracy it is that moment where you just hold your breath and it's this tremendous leap of faith where a loser says okay I am willing to be governed by the opposition because the alternative is worse If concessions happen less frequently she said she's worried about more political violence similar to January 6th Well have we seen this tension around concessions play out in elections we've had since Trump lost in 2020 We have Just looking back at the New Jersey governor's race last year it's a good example The vote there was pretty close and the Republican candidate Jack chiarelli waited more than a week to concede while votes were still being counted Now chiarelli was not alleging fraud or anything but his campaign attorney Mark Sheridan told me he had to work really really hard to make that clear because the atmosphere around concessions is just so unbelievably polarized right now I had no interest in becoming Rudy Giuliani standing in front of a mulch pile making crazy statements about election fraud He's referring there to Trump's campaign attorney Rudy Giuliani making baseless election claims as some people might remember in front of a landscaping company But the candidate Sheridan was representing did end up conceding but in 2022 a lot of candidates are actually running on Trump's election lies And so election officials are really worried that means those same candidates might be similarly willing to not admit they lose after they potentially probably some of them will lose in the 2022 election I talked about that with Matt Masterson who worked on election security efforts at the Department of Homeland Security through the 2020 election I think we have to assume that in some cases hopefully not many cases but the incentive structure suggests perhaps more and more cases The loser of the election will not accept will not concede So what can officials who oversee voting do to prepare for that It's tough because the behavior of candidates is one of the few things that election officials can't really game plan out right But at this point they basically have to prep information get voters prepared to fight against this disinformation The last two years has been prepared local election officials preparing as if they're going into an information battle in 2022 and 2024 and this fall will be the first real test That is Ampere's miles parks Thank you miles Thank you Passover begins at sunset tonight and at countless satyrs Jews will tell the story of the exodus of a people leaving behind everything they knew and wandering in search of a promised land For Jews who fled the war in Ukraine it's a story they are right in the middle of Deena pritchett reports The decision to leave home is not an easy one Olenna Helena was in harkey when the war started Russian plains dropped bombs right outside This song is something I can not find the word because it's like super low and super noisy and you're house is just trembling In the Passover story the Hebrew people leave Egypt with almost no notice The unleavened matzo symbolizes the fact that bread didn't even have time to rise Culina found out about a bus out of town two days before it left But still home is your Friends home is your family home is your job but everything that you can take with you is just the backpackers suitcase And you should pull it all your home in it So it's impossible and you are living everything that is just valuable for you Halena is traveling from her temporary home in Prague to spend Passover with Ukrainian Friends who've landed in Berlin And to remind her of home she keeps singing an old Ukrainian song about love and springtime and things blooming again Lost.
