EPISODE 8: Dead End
In February 2015, the Somerset prosecutor announced that John Sheridan had murdered his wife in cold blood and then killed himself. In 2017, the manner of death was updated to “undetermined.” From the local detectives to the state’s Attorney General’s office, a lot of people walked away from these murders. If a family as powerful and well-connected as the Sheridans gets such bad treatment, what does this say about the justice system in New Jersey?
New voices interviewed in episode:
• Ben Barlyn, lawyer who filed a whistleblower lawsuit against the Chris Christie administration.
• Peter Sheridan, younger brother of John, and a federal judge in New Jersey.
