UPDATE 1/6/11: Dunwoody man’s widow knew alleged killer
A Buckhead man has been arrested in connection with the November killing of Russell “Rusty” Sneiderman of Dunwoody.
Hemy Zvi Neuman, 48, was arrested by Dunwoody Police on Jan. 4 and charged with murder, Dunwoody police said. He is being held at DeKalb County Jail without bond, said Dunwoody Police spokesman Sgt. Mike Carlson.
Sneiderman on Nov. 18 was shot several times in the parking lot of Dunwoody Prep, a daycare center at 5493 Chamblee Dunwoody Road. He had just dropped off his son at the facility and was returning to his car when he was shot.
No other information was given by police at a press conference Tuesday night. Carlson said the investigation is ongoing.
At the time of the shooting, police said the suspect drove off in a silver minivan with no license plate. Police said the suspect was wearing a beard, but it could have been a fake.
Sneiderman’s family had put up a $10,000 reward to go with a $2,000 CrimeStoppers reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect
Sneiderman earned an MBA from Harvard Business and had three companies listed with the Georgia Secretary of State’s office.

A second company, Sneiderman Consulting, was formed in May 2010.
In September, he joined two others in starting Star Voicemail. According to its profile on the Linked-in website, this is a company “offers custom voice mail greetings featuring notable sports, movie, music and TV personalities.”
