It was on this winters night when Judge John Van Winkle and his wife, Jane, were brutally stabbed in their home, which still stands today in the town of Hawthorne. Jane died from her wounds immediately, but her husband hung on long enough to identify John Jonston, their former employee, as their assailant. Jonston maintained his innocence through the countys first murder trial and until he was marched to the gallows. Local author Don Everett Smith Jr. uncovers the true story behind the Goffle Road murders and the unusual connections with United States Vice President Garrett Hobart.
