May 27, 2014:  We will begin writing the book now, since law enforcement, including the FBI, refuse to investigate New Jersey public servant corruption regarding this suspicious death case.


September 5, 2013:  The FBI office in Newark has been contacted regarding this corruption.  We are pending a response from them at this time.  Brian J. Nadeau, Unit Chief of the Public Corruption Unit at the Washington, DC FBI Field Office sent our complaint and over 100 pages of evidence to the FBI Field Office in Newark, NJ.

June 12, 2013:  We were informed by Candice Boehler (formerly Candice Marquette) that Raymond J. Sauter died on December 5, 2011.  However, Candice would not provide us the cause and manner of death.  Even though Sauter is former family, the NJ Bureau of Vital Statistics will not provide us a copy of his certificate of death, with cause and manner on it, because we are not his blood family.  We cannot confirm his death at this time.  Sauter’s alleged death, however, does not alter the criminal actions and charges against the public officials, as described in this web site.  Laws were broken and those determined to be guilty must pay in accordance with “NJ law.”

April 29, 2013:  The FBI is reviewing the criminal complaint against Dr. DiCarlo, of falsifying government records, regarding Joyce’s multiple Certificates of Death, completed by DiCarlo.  Because this is a suspicious death/murder case, there are no statutes of limitations.

March 7, 2012:  It is clear that NJ wants nothing to do with investigating any of these public servants for their part in Joyce’s suspicious death.  That includes Gov Christie, AG Chiesa, Director Taylor, US Attorney Fishman, and all those that went before them.  The case against DiCarlo is compelling and is supported by direct, relevant, and material evidence that proves his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

February 22, 2013:  Wrote the FBI in DC a short letter reminding them of my 331 pages of criminal evidence that the USPS is trying to deliver.

February 19, 2013:  Fishman did not respond to my letter of January 2, 2013.  So I sent 331 pages of criminal evidence against DiCarlo to the FBI, 935 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington DC20535-0001.

February 4, 2013:  Will give Fishman until Feb 16, 2012 to respond; then contact the FBI.

January 2, 2013:  On this date I sent a letter to the U.S. Attorney for New Jersey, asking for an investigation:  Paul J. Fishman, US Attorney for the District of NJ, 970 Broad Street, 7th Floor, Newark, NJ  07102.

November 18, 2012:  Taylor refused to investigate allegations against DiCarlo citing a Dep AG Denise Hollingsworth conclusion that an investigation found no basis to prosecute, from June 9, 2008.  He accepted this response knowing full well that charges were filed by me against Holingsworth in this matter.

September 22, 2012:  Sent letters to Candice and Deby asking them one final time if they wanted to say anything regarding their perjury and reporting of false information to law enforcement.  Neither responded.

September 10, 2012:  USPS confirms letters to Chiesa, Taylor, and Christie were delivered on Sept 7, 2012.

September 4, 2012:  Sent letter to Taylor at Div of Criminal Justice seeking status report on his investigation of DiCarlo

August 25 and 27, 2012:  Candice Boehler enters comments on this blog site.

August 2, 2012:  received return receipt confirming Candice Boehler’s new address.

July 30, 2012:  confirmed correct address for Deby via return receipt with USPS

July 26, 2012:  sent certified letter to Deby Bath in Cliffwood NJ

July 21, 2012:  certified letter delivered to Taylor, Dir of Fivision of Criminal Justice, POB 080, Trenton, NJ 08625.

July 21, 2012:  confirmed Boehler’s new address

July 19, 2012:  certififed letters delivered to Gov Christie and AG Chiesa, regarding the investigation of DiCarlo.

July 16, 2012:  sent a letter to Candiec Boehler, Joyce’s daughter, to see if she wanted to discuss her official comments and how she perjured herself during the investigation of Joyce’s suspiciious death

July 16, 2012:  Sent a letter to AG J.S. Chiesa asking for a status report on the criminal investigation of DiCarlo

July 16, 2012:  sent a letter to S.J. Taylor, Director for the Division of Criminal Justic, asking for a status report re:  DiCarlo complaint

July 16, 2012:  Sent letter to Gov Christie asking for a status update on the DiCarlo investigation.

April 5, 2012:  wrote Chiesa asking him for an update

April 5, 2012: McGrath responds in his letter of 3-26-12 that the case has been referred by AG Chiesa to the Div of Criminal Justice.

March 18, 2012:  wrote McGrath asking for a status report on the specific complaint against DiCarlo

March 5, 2012:  confirmed delivery of the pkg sent on March 3, 2012, to the OAG.

March 4, 2012:  Sent a letter to Gov Christie regarding his referral of the case to the OAG for investigation.

March 3, 2012:  Sent a 331-page pkg of criminal evidence on DiCarlo to the OAG, Div of Criminal Justic, Dept of Law and Public Safety (LT McGrath) POB 85, Trenton, NJ  08625-6500.

February 19, 2012:  On January 26, 2012, we received another letter from the OAG, R&I Section informing us that Gov. Christie asked Lt. McGrath to review our correspondence.  This OAG letter was dated December 22, 2011, and post-marked January 24, 2012.

September 21, 2011:  DiCarlo is appointed the Bergen County, NJ Medical Examiner

May 28, 2011:  In April 2011, we received a request from the Attorney General’s Office to send them correspondence relative to numerous letters sent to Gov. Christie regarding the appointment of a Special Prosecutor.  At Det. Davis’ direction (R&I), evidence in support of the criminal complaints was not/not provided at this time.

March 3, 2011: Though Judge Lawrence M. Lawson was proven to have violated Rules of the Court, among others, Judge Glenn A. Grant turned the other cheek and refused to respond to me, and refused to address the corruption under his nose.  Birds of a feather flock together.  For Judge Grant to respond in any other manner would mean a number of public officials would be investigated for corruption.  Now Judge Glenn A. Grant is part of the corruption.  Look for the new chapter on “The Courts” by the end of March.

February 7, 2011: Our response to Judge Lawson’s Opinion was mailed to Judges Lawrence M. Lawson, Glenn A. Grant, and Travis L. Francis today.  We also sent a copy of our response to Gov. Christie.  In addition to our analysis of Judge Lawson’s convoluted Opinion, we requested that a Special Prosecutor be appointed to conduct the investigation, as it is clear the Courts are unable to ensure a fair and impartial hearing wherein we are given the opportunity to present the evidence to support our charges.

January 25, 2011:  Without hearing the 60 other criminal complaints, Judge Lawson dismissed all of them.  In his opinion, received on January 22, 2011, he drew many false conclusions and defended all the defendants making a mockery of the probable cause hearing.  Judge Lawson refused to use the NJ State definition, in the law, for “autopsy”, and instead used a definition from Merriam Webster’s dictionary that suited his intended outcome, which was to refute virtually everything presented by us at the hearing.  His actions, including his animated antics behind the bench, are probably grounds for filing a criminal complaint of official misconduct against him, not to mention violations of his code of professional conduct.  A response is being prepared.

January 13, 2011:  Judge Lawson decided to hear only one of the 61 complaints on 1-11-11 and ended what turned out to be a non-probable cause hearing.  While the Court argued with virtually every statement we made, we were denied the opportunity to present any evidence in support of our statements, with the Court claiming this was not an “evidentiary probable cause hearing”.  We could not find anything in the Rules of the Court addressing the issue.  Judge Lawson is to provide us with a written opinion shortly.  The “Court” is now saying that four complaints not previously documented with the CDR1 or CDR2 will not be heard at all and that all of the “citizen complaints” initially filed by me on June 2, 2010 had to include all the evidence in support of the charges, something no other court told us and the filing court told us not/not to do.  We are as confused as ever as to why the Courts in NJ continue to act in this harassing and frivolous manner.  More to come.

December 27, 2010:  The probable cause hearing is set for January 11, 2011.  We understand the Court intends to hear all 61 criminal complaints in one day, though the Court will not confirm that.  When we asked in what order the complaints would be heard, we were told to consult the Rules of the Court.

October 23, 2010: On October 5, 2010, Judge De Vesa concluded that because of a “conflict of interest” the probable cause hearing previously scheduled in New Brunswick would be transferred to a different county.  A County of Middlesex Attorney (Benjamin D. Leibowitz, Esq.) representing “the County of Middlesex and its officials and employees” was present, and was permitted by Judge De Vesa to sit at the table with me for my hearing.  Interesting to note that the name of the person accused of the suspicious death of Joyce had only his first name on the letter/notice received from Middlesex County Superior Court–why can’t the Court get this straight?  It was reported in a telephone conversation  that the sworn affidavits previously reported as missing, have been located.  This continues the pattern of frivolous conduct and harassment, eh?  What would a reasonable person think?  I am pending notice of the probable cause hearing date and location.


October 7, 2010:  The letter I received from the Superior Court told me to report to 90 Paterson Street, in New Brunswick, for the scheduled Change of Venue hearing held on October 5, 2010, before Judge De Vesa.  The correct address of the Court House is 56 Paterson Street.  The change of venue hearing was held before Judge De Vesa on October 5, 2010, in the Superior Court, New Brunswick.  The outcome of the hearing will be published here as soon as it is received.  It was noted by Judge De Vesa that my sworn affidavits sent by the Monroe Twp. Municipal Court were missing from my 61 criminal complaints following receipt in the Superior Court, New Brunswick.  Superior Court personnel are looking for my sworn affidavits at this time.  The beat goes on in Middlesex County.


















September 28, 2010: The probable cause hearing about to be scheduled before Judge Devesa, as noted in the 9/20/10 update, has been canceled.  More to come.

September 20, 2010: Frivoulous Action?  Harassment?  Fair Hearing?  The probable cause hearing set for 10/5/10 in Monroe Twp. under Judge Boyd was canceled for a second time, citing the same rule previously cited by Judge Boyd in transferring the 61 criminal complaints to the AOC.  The Superior Court informed me today that a new probable cause hearing will be set for Superior Court, Middlesex County, shortly, under Judge Frederick P. DeVesa, date TBD.

September 17, 2010: Sent to Judges Herman and Francis, as noted below, a new probable cause hearing/review date has been set.  Changing their minds again, Judges Herman and Francis will not/not decide probable cause, nor will they hear the complaints.  They assigned that responsibility to another judge, still in Middlesex County.  Here we go ’round in circles.  More to come.

September 9, 2010: Judges Herman and Francis will soon be conducting a probable cause review on all 61 criminal complaints.  Judge Herman, you may recall, received the 61 criminal complaints from Sayreville Municipal Court, and passed them down to Judge Boyd, who passed them up to the AOC, who passed them back to Judge Herman.  The court believes they have the 61 criminal complaints in the right place this time.  I am told I should be hearing something from the court regarding the status of the criminal complaints fairly soon.  Yes, they are still in Middlesex County.  Yes, we are wary of Middlesex County ruling on criminal complaints against public servants in Middlesex County.  Time will tell.

August 27, 2010: The probable cause hearing scheduled for August 17, 2010, was cancled by Judge George M. Boyd on August 16, 2010, because of jurisdictional concerns.  The 61 criminal complaints were transferred to the Administrative Office of the Courts for assignment.  Court Administrators are refusing to confirm they have all 61 criminal complaints in hand.

July 28, 2010:  A probable cause hearing is scheduled for August 28, 2010, at 9:30 a.m., in the Monroe Twp. Municipal Court, Judge George M. Boyd presiding.

July 15, 2010 Update:  On July 14, 2010, we learned that the Sayreville Municipal Court transferred the signed criminal complaints up the chain to Judge Herman, Viciniage VIII, who subsequently transferred the criminal complaints down the chain to Judge George Boyd in Monroe Twp., still in Middlesex County.

July 2, 2010 Update:  Following a decision by Supreme Court Chief Justice Stuart Rabner that charges should have been filed in a trial court, Citizen Criminal Complaints were filed against 15 persons, including all of those in this blog site, on June 2, 2010, in the Sayreville Municipal Court.


The purpose of this website is to raise a consciousness in New Jersey and obtain justice for our sister.  Joyce B. (Strouse) Sauter.  Joyce died a suspicious death on October 29, 2005.  Though she had terminal cancer, the date of her death could not be predicted with any accuracy.  Joyce’s husband at the time, Raymond J. Sauter (we are unable to confirm Sauter’s alleged death on December 5, 2011), stated that the plan for Joyce was to die.  Joyce’s two daughters supported his decision for unknown reasons.  Other family members, specifically her sister and brother, fought unsuccessfully for Joyce to live the life she wanted, until death came for her in it’s own time.  What transpired leading up to and after Joyce’s suspicious death transcends the tragedy of her death.

Following her untimely and suspicious death, the Sayreville, NJ Police Department and Middlesex County law enforcement public servants knowingly and purposely refused to investigate her suspicious death because, we believe, the person we allege singularly contributed to her untimely death was a former police officer and colleague, if not personal friend, of those same public servants.  Our attempts to obtain justice through county law enforcement were to no avail; thus our efforts were elevated above the county. 

After struggling with Middlesex County public servants for over 30 months, including a court fight for specimens taken from Joyce during her post mortem External Examination, we decided the direct evidence we had was ripe enough for intervention and investigation by the NJ Attorney General’s Office.  We quickly learned that the cover-up extended from Middlesex County to a Deputy Attorney General and we concluded that obtaining justice in that office was futile.  In hopes of creating some kind of leverage, we advised the local Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of our allegations and asked them to monitor the case.  The agent we spoke to on the telephone informed us that not only would the FBI probably not act, but they would not even acknowledge receipt of our allegations in writing.  The agent insisted that the FBI does not investigate county or state corruption by public servants.  So where did we turn?

Working through the NJ government, such as it was, we filed additional allegations with Gov Corzine’s office in early September 2008, apprising him of our unsuccessful attempts to have a law enforcement organization investigate the suspicious death of Joyce.  Though United States Postal Service records indicate the Governor’s office received our extensive allegations (362 pages) no acknowledgement was ever returned to us from Gov Corzine’s office. 

We also sent a copy of the 362-page allegation, filled with direct evidence, to the U.S. Attorney’s office (Mr. Chris Christie, who is now running for Governor), with the same result.  Despite repeated follow-ups with both Gov. Corzine’s office and the US Attorney’s office, no acknowledgment was ever received.  No response does not necessarily mean they are not investigating; however, it is not encouraging.  What do you do when law enforcement turns their back on you and refuses to restore the order of law?

To our knowledge, the only recourses we had left was to generate some kind of awareness across the state, in whatever venue was available to us.  We advised both the Governor’s office and the U.S. Attorney’s office in late November 2008, that if we did not hear from them by December 31, 2008, some four months after initial contact, we would conclude they planned to do nothing regarding an investigation into the suspicious death of our sister.  Likewise, we advised them of the same conclusion regarding their decision not to investigate the corruption by public servants in Middlesex County. 

As a result, on or about January 5, 2009, we sent letters to a number of attorneys, judges, prosecutors, and medical examiners throughout NJ’s 21 counties.  We put together this website, beginning with the Middlesex County Medical Examiner’s office.  This chapter will be followed by separate chapters addressing the actions of other public servants involved in this case since October 29, 2005.

We would like to emphasize that the direct and relevant evidence we have to support all of our allegations was generated by Middlesex County and state public servants.  Wherein any public official, especially in the NJ Attorney General’s Office states the allegations have no merit, the direct and relevant evidence we have clearly and directly contradicts such conclusions.  Public servants have been unwilling to sit down with us to discuss their findings and instead, have cloaked the justification for their conclusions behind the curtain of privileged investigative information.  This site will put the direct evidence we have out for all to see and judge independently.  The fig leaves are coming off.  The naked truth will be shown.

My sister, Carolyn Ausley, and I, Bill Strouse, understand that this website falls into a long line of other websites and blogs from people who are aggrieved and who believe they are the victims of corruption and injustice in New Jersey.  It is a sad commentary to note that though NJ was not “voted” the most corrupt state in the Union in 2008, it is still not far from being number one.

This is a true story about corrupt public servants in New Jersey: Middlesex County, The Sayreville Police Department, the Attorney General’s Office, the Office of the Governor, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Newark.  The direct and relevant evidence speaks for itself. 

Direct evidence is direct proof of a fact, such as eyewitness testimony or documents presented in lieu of testimony; we have documents to verify our stated facts.  Relevant evidence “means evidence having a tendency in reason to prove or disprove any fact of consequence to the determination of the action.  Circumstantial evidence is based upon deductions or logical conclusions reached from direct evidence. 

There have been no retractions of testimony or evidentiary submissions on the part of any of the public servants and irreparable harm was caused to members of the family presenting this information, Carolyn Ausley and Bill Strouse, sister and brother of the deceased, Joyce B. (Strouse) Sauter, who died under suspicious circumstances on October 29, 2005.

NOTE OF JUNE 9, 2009

Of note are 2 motions we submitted several weeks ago to the NJ Superior Court.  One motion was to TOLL the STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS on the criminal allegations we made against the public servants involved in the blue-wall coverup until such time as the investigation of Joyce’s suspicious death is completed (filed Pro Se 03/20/09).  You will read about the allegations in the following chapters.  The second motion submitted was for the purpose of correcting Joyce’s official certificate of death, which as you will read, was falsified by the Medical Examiner’s Office (filed Pro Se 04-03-09).

Previous motions were returned “denied” without explanation within 30 days.  It has now been more then two months since the first filing and we are pending a decision from the court.  We are not sure what this means, other than maybe the court decided it is time to conduct the suspicious death investigation and begin an investigation into the criminal allegations made herein.  Afterall, how long can the Superior Court of NJ ignore criminal allegations against public servants for not investigating a suspicious death, and maintain its integrity and morality?

If an investigation is ongoing, neither Carolyn nor I have yet to be contacted.


No investigation to our knowledge.  Most recent motions denied without explanation; clarification and reconsideration motions submitted and pending court response–denial expected.  We have one more motion to file and then hope to be able to get the case before the NJ Supreme Court.  We are on a time deadline with write-up and then filing, so have fallen behind.  We will publish the complaint on the NJ Attorney General’s Office, Ms. Denise Hollingsworth in particular, with 45 days, we hope.  Please check  back then, if not sooner.


No investigation was conducted.  All motions in the Superior Court were denied without explanation.  Three (3) motions are now filed with the NJ Supreme Court, pending review for denial or argument.  More to come.


Supreme Court Chief Justice Stuart Rabner, in his ORDER dated November 2, 2009, granted and denied several of our motions.  He also stated that we should have filed in a “trial court” to achieve the relief we sought, in the first instance.

In speaking with a Criminal Division Manager in the Superior Court, we were told to get our case in a “trial court” we had to complete complaint forms available from the Sayreville Police Department to file “complaints” against the public servants alleged to have broken the law.

On November 30, 2009, contrary to what the Superior Court Criminal Division Manager told us, the Secretary to the Chief of the Sayreville Police Department refused our request for complaint forms to file complaints against the public servants identified in these chapters, stating the forms must be obtained from the Superior Court and filed with the Superior Court.

JANUARY 2, 2010:  We are now completing the Citizen Complaint forms to be initially filed in the Sayreville Municipal Court, for disposition.  There will be close to 64 criminal complaints filed against publilc servants and others involved in the case.  We will seek a change in venue for complaint review.

We thank you for your time, patience, and comments as we build and improve upon this site in a heart-felt effort to raise the consciousness in New Jersey and obtain justice for our sister. Please feel free to pass this website along to all you know.Thank you again for taking the time to read this and we hope to see your comments.
