    wait. The theory bantered about is murder/suicide? Cuz he can kill her and stab himself in the jugular AND THEN pull the huge armoire on top of himself AND THEN douse it in gas and light it. Ummm, ok. Truth is stranger than fiction, I guess.

    TO ME, however, this screams personal and intimate AND NOT MURDER/SUICIDE. Interesting to see what is discovered after investigation.

    I think it's worth mentioning that one of the sons was said to have been in NY at the time of the murders. It was reported that he was arrested that afternoon for cocaine possession and that the arrest was unrelated to the murders. HOWEVER, the Montgomery Twp. police report has the arrest occurring at 6:13 a.m., which is within minutes of the neighbor calling 911. No drug charges have been filed, by the way.

    thanks Okie Granny!

    I can't say I expected murder/suicide but haven't followed this thread a lot. need to go back and read thru it again.

    ETA...obviously I haven't followed this closely enough as the article at the beginning of the thread alludes to murder/suicide. Too many threads to keep track of I guess!

    What an interesting case. I do wonder that the lady's brother was so bothered by the ME/LE doing the tox screen on his brother-in-law. I would assume you would want as thorough an investigation as possible, no matter what is found. The more you know, the less guessing and arguing people have to endure later.

    I am shocked that this thread has not generated any interest here. Talk about a bizarre death with an even more bizarre aftermath of "investigation". I've felt something was way off from the moment I heard about their deaths (they are right across the River from us here in Philly). Wish there would be some sleuther input!

    Agreed. And furthermore, why hasn't it received more attention from LE?? Today the news says, open and shut? LE is essentially saying the wife murdered the husband, because how else could he be under an armoire doused with gasoline then set on fire? And the wife commit suicide by stabbing herself. I'd like to see the medical records. These deaths still seem very suspicious (to me).

    Millionaire CEO, 72, stabbed to death his wife, 69, then set fire to their home in murder-suicide, officials say... but their children insist they were both murdered

    John Sheridan and wife, Joyce, found dead in New Jersey home last year

    They had both been stabbed several times, while their house was ablaze

    On Friday, prosecutors ruled Mr Sheridan, 72, stabbed to death wife, 69

    Cooper Health System CEO 'then set fire to house and stabbed himself'

    Couple's children have released statement challenging official findings

    Four sons say they still don't know who killed parents on September 28

    But prosecutors said inquiry found no signs of break-in at the property

    Also said Mr Sheridan was 'withdrawn' and 'very upset' prior to deaths

    An earlier article says three weapons were used but only two were recovered. Did they recover the third? If not, it can't be a murder/suicide with a missing weapon.
