Marc Safran's wife, Dr. Mary Jumbelic, played a key role in cracking a murder case in Upstate New York. Accordiing to Syracuse.com:
Dr. Robert Neulander and his wife, Leslie, took a fruit basket to an ill friend from Jewish temple in September 2012.
Two days later, Leslie Neulander was dead. The story was a tragic slip and fall in the shower.
That ill friend was former Onondaga County Medical Examiner Dr. Mary Jumbelic. She led the ME's office for 11 years before retiring in 2009.
As it turned out, Jumbelic became the impetus for the investigation that ultimately led to Dr. Neulander's murder trial and conviction Thursday.
The death was initially ruled accidental by Jumbelic's replacement, Dr. Robert Stoppacher. But District Attorney William Fitzpatrick credited Jumbelic for getting the ball rolling again before he contacted nationally-renowned experts.
