22 Years Later, Cumberland County Murder Remains Unsolved
On August 31, 1998, a woman was murder in the city of Bridgeton. 22 years later, the case remains unsolved.
According to the Cumberland County Prosecutor's office, 31-year-old Charlotte Sudler was found behind Dares Feed Store at Cohansey Street and Irving Avenue in Bridgeton with signs of blunt force trauma. Sudler’s death has been ruled a homicide.
Sudler's case is one of over 30 unsolved murders listed on the office's website, some dating back to 1990.
In an interview with NJ.com in January, 2019, Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae said, "The unsolved homicides are the result of lack of evidence, lack of cooperation by witnesses, lack of information and/or identifiable leads that investigators can pursue at this time."
Webb-McRae continued, "It is our hope that the public's interest will generate new leads to help bring the persons responsible for these crimes to justice."
