Woodbury Woman Killed in Camden Double Murder

A Woodbury woman was killed in a double homicide in Camden Friday, according to Camden Police Chief Scott Thompson.

Tara Ryan, 39, was found with Tarik Ali, who had previous addresses in Trenton and Mount Holly, in a black 2001 Volkswagen that had crashed near 30th and Berkley just before 7 p.m. in Camden's Stockton neighborhood, just a few blocks from East Camden Middle School.

Ryan and the man had both been shot to death. The car, still in drive, had rammed into a pickup truck before police responded to the scene, Thompson said.

Camden County Prosecutor's Office spokesman Jason Laughlin said there's a joint investigation by the prosecutor's office and Camden police currently underway. Anyone with information on the killing is urged to contact Camden County Prosecutor's Office Investigator John Hunsinger at 856-225-8400 or Camden Police Detective Robert Chew at 856-757-7420.
