Police Chief Billy Grogan

If Andrea Sneiderman is acquitted of conspiring to murder her husband, it may be because of mistakes made by the Dunwoody Police Department a news report alleges.

WSB-TV in Atlanta on Monday, Aug. 13, published a report picking apart how the city’s police department handled the case. The report, citing a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent, attorneys and other officials, said Dunwoody police investigators dropped the ball in several instances. They said Dunwoody didn’t take any action to preserve Andrea Sneiderman’s text messages and declined an offer from the GBI to help with the case.

The report says inconsistencies in Sneiderman’s statements and her peculiar actions after the murder of her husband outside of a Dunwoody daycare center in 2010 should’ve made investigators suspicious. The report also says Dunwoody police officers told the family of her husband, Rusty Sneiderman, they did not consider Andrea a suspect.

Dunwoody Police Chief Billy Grogan, quoted heavily in the report, defended his department’s handling of the case.  To read the full report, click here.

When a reporter from the Dunwoody Reporter asked Grogan for his reaction to the WSB-TV story, he declined to comment.

Sneiderman is charged with conspiring with her former boss, Hemy Neuman, to murder her husband to collect on his insurance policy.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that DeKalb County Prosecutors are seeking a sentence of life without parole in the case.  Neuman was convicted of the murder earlier this year. To read the AJC report, click here.
