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:

Kim Leech wrote; I'm sure they have bucket loads of evidence...All Hemy (Nueman's) technology would have been seized.. and im sure he and Andrea were still in contact with each other right up to his arrest! There will still be plenty of damning evidence yet to come.

Bac to the case, Dunwoody police apprehended the shooter and now convicted murderer, Hemy Neuman, (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.

Hey I like good clean fun differences of opinions. It's a great part of this site. Just be civil - which you have been - w/o crossing any lines. Just a happy Saturday observation.

PD got the shooter and turned case over to DA, resulting in a conviction. Sounds like excellent police work to me. The trial flushed out more about Andrea. Good work by DA team. I don't know why people are making such a fuss. It's not like TV where everything is cleared up in an hour

From where I sit, the Dunwoody police only aggressively pursue 'crimes' that bring fines (money) to the City of Dunwoody (mostly traffic & DUI violations). BTW, someone might want to proof this article. It has a lot of typos.

This past Sunday, the DPD arrested a woman for "Walking on 285" .. What ever happened to sending someone like this down the road rather than tying up three patrol cars for hours?
