A tragic shooting death has occurred on Christmas evening in Hamilton Township, Atlantic County, New Jersey.

We have confirmed that David Wigglesworth, (57) was shot and killed on Sunday, December 25, 2022.

We have confirmed that the shooting death occurred in the 10:00 p.m hour on the 5200 block of Mays Landing Somers Point Road.

We have been advised that the alleged shooter appears to be Marylue Wigglesworth, (51) who is Wigglesworth wife.

A very close and distraught friend of Wigglesworth initially confirmed to us that the tragic event occurred. He received confirmation from an immediate Wigglesworth family member.

Dave Wigglesworth ran with Bruce Strigh for the Hamilton Township Committee in 2012.

This was the same election that then incumbent Deputy Mayor Charles Cain and Harvey Kesselman both opted not to run for re-election.

Cain is the current Mayor of Hamilton Township.
