Daycare Murder Victim Allegedly Killed By Wife's Boss | News
DUNWOODY, GA - Thursday afternoon, DeKalb County officials released the criminal arrest warrant for a 48-year-old man accused of killing a Dunwoody father right after he dropped his son off at daycare in November.
Hemy Zvi Neuman asked for a public defender when he appeared in DeKalb County Magistrate's Court Wednesday afternoon in the murder of Rusty Sneiderman. The judge denied bail in the case.
11Alive News has independantly confirmed that Andrea Sneiderman was one of 10 or 11 direct reports under Hemy Neuman at GE Energy. They worked within the Quality Division within the Energy Group.
GE confirmed to 11Alive News Wednesday afternoon that both were still active employees with the company. A spokesperson said they worked in separate buildings at the Wildwood Parkway offices but had contact throughout the work day.
Neuman's LinkedIn page listed him as an Operations and Quality Manger, while Andrea Snieiderman's LinkedIn page lists her as a SSG of Quality Management Systems Manager at GE Energy.
A GE spokesman told 11Alive's Jeff Hullinger Wednesday the company is fully cooperating with Dunwoody police in the matter.
Police said Neuman shot Sneiderman multiple times in the parking lot of Dunwoody Prep Preschool at 5493 Chamblee Dunwoody Road, just after Sneiderman dropped his 2-year-old off at the center on November 18.
Police said their investigation was ongoing in the case.
Sneiderman was the father of two. Neuman was born and raised in Israel and attended school outside of Tel Aviv. He is also a father with three children and graduated from Georgia Tech in 1984, and worked for General Electric.
Neuman has been involved in Metro Atlanta's Jewish community and has been helping out the Robotics Club at Cobb County's Walton High School. He has been living in a house in Buckhead, but he also owns a home off of LaSalle Drive in East Cobb County. His children -- 20-year-old twins and a 17-year-old girl -- have been living in the Cobb County home.
According to his Facebook page, Neuman spent the holidays in Florida traveling. But a lingering question remains -- how does a learned, accomplished man with a successful career, one who contributes to his community and has no prior record find himself facing a murder charge?
Friends were planning a candlelight vigil for Sneiderman outside Dunwoody Prep on Thursday, January 6, but it's been postponed because of Tuesday's arrest.
