Jersey Shore Narcos

In previous episodes of Jersey Shore Narcos, a New Jersey doctor named James Kauffman was arrested for hiring someone to murder his wife, April, five years earlier.

He wanted her dead because he was afraid she would divorce him and then tell police that he was running a massive prescription drug ring with the Cape May chapter of what professional journalists call the Pagans Motorcycle Gang, or PMG.

The murder took a year to accomplish. The actual murderer was a man named Francis Mulholland who was said to have been the cousin of a Pagan named Joseph Mulholland. But Francis Mulholland died of a drug overdose long ago so we only know the real story behind the mystery of April Kauffman’s murder because of a good citizen named Andrew Glick.

Glick used to be a Pagan. After he got caught selling drugs by the FBI he agreed to tape record conversations with Kauffman’s co-conspirators. We know this because Glick, from New Jersey, gave an interview to a reporter and expert on Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs, or OMGs, named Peter Edwards. Edwards, lives in Toronto. Somehow, Glick got out of jail, took a bus Toronto, found Edwards, talked, then snuck back into jail without anyone noticing until Edwards ran his story.

Anyway, after Kauffman and six of his accomplices were arrested, Kauffman killed himself in a North Jersey jail and left behind a suicide note that remains secret to this day.


In recent episodes, various of Kauffman’s alleged co-conspirators have appeared in court, three months after their arrests, to plead their innocence.

Former Pagans chapter president Ferdinand “Freddy’ Augello is charged with criminal conspiracy to sell drugs, being an accessory to April Kauffman’s murder, and confessing to Glick that it wouldn’t particularly bother him if somebody killed Kauffman. Which somebody did. Except that person who killed Kauffman was Kauffman, who left behind a secret suicide note which his lawyer has suggested was mostly to the effect of, “I just want it all to stop. I didn’t do it! All cops are nuts.”

Augello pleaded innocent to all charges and is scheduled for another hearing next month. Prosecutors have advertised the fact that they have offered Augello a plea and bargaining agreement which could guarantee him some leniency if he just confesses instead of making prosecutors prove what they have already said they could prove.

Augello’s ex-wife Beverly Augello, Joseph Mulholland, Glenn Seeler and Tabitha Chapman all pled not guilty to racketeering. Joseph.Mulholland denied he was related to April Kauffman’s alleged and deceased killer Francis Mulholland. He, Seeler and Chapman were all offered plea and sentencing agreements.

Romantic Angle

The last two defendants, Cheryl Pizza and Paul Pagano were finally allowed to plead not guilty this week.
Pagano who admits to once belonging to the Pagans successfully argued to have his case severed from the other six defendants.

Pizza has a restraining order against her co-defendant Seeler so, at least for the time being, the two cannot appear in court at the same time. She filed the order after she accidentally shot Seeler during a domestic dispute in 2015.

Stay tuned.

    “The world is full of great criminals with enormous power, and they are in a death struggle with each other. It is a huge gang battle, using well-meaning lawyers and policemen and clergymen as their front, controlling papers, means of communication, and enrolling everybody in their armies.” That was written by Thomas Merton many years ago… (look him up if you like, he was murdered by the man for what he wrote…and he was a real live Catholic monk)

    So what?

    The “prosecutorial shenanigans” are assault under color of authority…

    The murder? (a book review)

    ” Cape May chapter of what professional journalists call the Pagans Motorcycle Gang, or PMG.”
    Is there ANOTHER Club out there just pretending to be the PAGAN’S ? A spinoff off The Sons of Anarchy ? It does get confusing…

    This country’s judicial system has gotten to where it’s no better than the judicial system was in cold war Russia. It’s not wuite hit Stalin’s Russia, but our inept and corrupt persecutors and judges are trying like hell to get it there as quickly as they can.

    Well what do you know?Another case built on the testimony of an ex member who got busted for drug dealing.

  7. Freebird Says:

    Stuff like this is where the term sometimes the facts are stranger than fiction!

  8. Paladin Says:

    There would be a lot less of these prosecutorial shenanigans if prosecutors were required to reimburse defendant’s court costs and legal fees from their annual budgets when the accused were found to be not guilty.
