Tragically, murders in Atlantic City, New Jersey in the brand new year took place in the very first hours of 2024.

We received word early this morning from two Atlantic City officials that the first murders of 2024 took place on January 1, 2024.

Our sources have confirmed that both murders were the result of stabbings.

The murders have been reported to us to have taken place on the Boardwalk, near Johnny Rockets  “Burgers, Skakes, Fries & Fun.”

We have been advised that the second murder took place at California and Pacific Avenues.

Whenever a murder takes place in Atlantic County, New Jersey, The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office takes the lead.

We have reacted out to Atlantic City Police Chief Jim Sarkos for comment. We will update this upon receipt.

We will also provide any comments from the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office upon receipt.

It’s a new year … but, an old trend appears to be continuing in Atlantic City.

The Atlantic City Police Department has its hands full and always does a great job … under very challenging and dangerous circumstances.
