Couple Found Dead Inside NJ Home; Cops Say “No Active Threat To Community”


Camden, N.J. – Detectives are investigating after a couple was found dead inside their Audubon home on Monday, according to Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill S. Mayer and Audubon Police Chief Thomas Tassi.

Police responded to a home on the unit block of Oakland Ave. in Audubon around 1 p.m. for a report of two people found deceased. A witness told officers they went to the home to conduct a welfare check after not hearing from the couple since Saturday.

Once inside, police say they located a woman dead from “visible injuries” and a man dead from a gunshot wound. They have been identified as Jane Venable, 64, and Kevin Venable, 63, both of Audubon.

Detectives are investigating the events that led up to the deaths. Officials would not classify the incident as a murder-suicide but said there is “no active threat to the community.”

Anyone with information that could assist in the investigation is asked to call CCPO Det. Kevin Courtney at 856-397-6770 or Audubon Police Det. Justin Tracy at 856-547-1171. Tips can also be emailed to [email protected]
