Did Dunwoody PD Look Into Andrea Sneiderman During Investigation?
Police officials say that they were focused on Hemy Neuman, the gunman eventually convicted of killing Russell Sneiderman, her husband.
A Channel 2 report wrote a scathing article this week about Dunwoody PD failing to consder Andrea Sniderman, eventually a suspect in her husband's murder, and instead investigated the convicted killer, Hemy Neuman.
Andrea has since been arrested, but Duwnoody PD took a hit from the DeKalb DA team, according to the Channel 2 report. "By the time the police got to where they need to make an arrest, a lot of evidence was lost," he said.

The Dunwoody PD are staying away from this one - refusing to tell their side of the story. On Friday, Sgt. Mike Carlson, department spokesman, said the case is now out of Dunwoody PDs hands.
"At this time there is nothing," he said. "My comment is that this case is with the DA's office. Anything related to Sneiderman has to go through the DA."
Police Chief Billy Grogan replied to a question from Channel 2 about whether Sniederman was suspected eartly in the investigation, and he answered bluntly. "Not seriously, no."
However the media savvy PD has gone to Facebook to take up the matter directly with their thousands of followers. So far, the finger-pointing has been squarely pointed at Dunwoody PD for not interviewing Sneiderman more aggressively.
Some kinder excerpts:

Bac to the case, Dunwoody police apprehended the shooter and now convicted murderer, Hemy Neuman, just six weeks (here's a timeline of the case) after he shot and killed Rusty Sneiderman, outside a city day care.
Sneiderman was arrested last week in connection with her husband's death. She is being held in the DeKalb County Jail awaiting an August 21 bond hearing.
Her indictment lists perjury at trial that possbily obscured a possible affair with Hemy Neuman. She denied this to both prosecutors and defense attorneys throughout the trial. Each count of perjury can lead to 10 years in jail.
