The Dunwoody man who was killed outside a preschool last month after leaving his child there had called police a week earlier to report a suspicious person in his backyard.
Russell "Rusty" Sneiderman, 36, was shot multiple times the morning of Nov. 18 in the heart of bustling Dunwoody Village after dropping off his 2-year-old son at a preschool. Police have described it as a "cold, calculated murder" by a killer who melted away into rush-hour traffic in an all-too-common silver Dodge minivan.
Police have no clear motive for the fatal shooting of the former financial consultant with a Harvard MBA.
And they say Sneiderman's report a week before his death about a suspicious person in his backyard is of no use in the investigation.
"We checked it out," Sgt. Mike Carlson of the Dunwoody Police Department told the AJC on Friday. "We don't think it was related."
Carlson said investigators reached that conclusion because the description of the person in the backyard didn't match the description of the killer, who was seen by a witness.
Police released a sketch last month of a bearded man with a knit cap. The victim's family subsequently announced a reward of $10,000 for information leading to the arrest of the killer.
