Tom Sharkey Statement
In the interview, Sharkey told Campion that he’s been receiving threats.
“It’s horrible. People are talking tons of crap. I’m getting death threats and stuff. None of that bothers me. What bothers me is that world and everybody in it focuses on all of the stuff that doesn’t matter … should have been focused on finding my wife,” said Sharkey to the television reporter. “Everybody was still looking for her, and I located her Sunday morning in the coroner’s office. They couldn’t ID my wife. They didn’t know who she was. She was just there.”
He also gave some details of the last time he saw his wife and said he’s cooperating with homicide investigators.
“She understood me. I understood her. We didn’t fight when she left. I just told her she couldn’t drive under the influence,” said Sharkey. “She left anyhow. This is where we’re at,” he told Campion.
