Report: Dunwoody PD Didn't Suspect Andrea Sneiderman as a Suspect in Investigation

Sneiderman was not "seriously" considered a suspect in the early days of the investigation, police say.

Police Chief Billy Grogam was asked a blunt question by Channel 2 News. Did he ever suspect Andrea Sneiderman killed her husband in the beginning of the investigation?

The answer? "Not seriously, no,' Grogan said in the report.

Some family members, including, Steve Sneiderman, the murdered husband's brother, questioned the lack of connecting two seemingly related events, according to the report.

The family implored Dunwoody PD to investigate Andrea Sneiderman, according to the report. The department did little at the start to investigate the widow, according to the report.

According to the report, Sneiderman was shielded from Duwnoody PD in answering questions about the killing. Text messages that could have been involved in the case where also not retrieved because of a time lag in obtaining them.

In many cases of spousal abuse or murder, the prime suspect is often the spouse.

Sneiderman was arrested last week in connection with her husband's death. She is being held in the DeKalb County Jail awaiting a August 21 bond hearing.
