On September 17, 2012 Robert and Leslie's daughter Jenna made a heartbreaking phone call to 911. Robert claimed he had found Leslie lying on the shower floor in what appeared to be a slip and fall. Leslie was pronounced dead on the scene when paramedics arrived. The cause of death was a head wound.

Suspicion quickly rose when N.Y. Police Sergeant Scott Kapral stated that upon entering the home, he found Leslie's body not in the shower, but on the floor in the bedroom. Which was odd since Robert claimed to have found her in the shower. The other odd thing that Sergeant Kapral noticed was the amount of blood all over the bedroom, in different areas. Robert explained that he had moved Leslie from the shower to the bedroom to more comfortably perform CPR. In fact, on the 911 call Jenna can be heard crying to her dad to stop moving her mom.

With the medical examiners also seeming to agree with the cause of death being blunt force trauma from a plausible slip in the shower, the detectives had no choice but to agree. Especially when everyone in the community all agreed that the Neulander's were a perfect and loving family.

A few months later however, things seemed to change. Recently retired forensic scientist Dr. Mary Jumbelic had begun to get multiple calls from friends and others in the community, stating that they believed it was no accident at all. But it wasn't just Dr. Jumbelic who was receiving calls. The D.A also received an anonymous letter around the same time, saying the same things. 

In the letter to the D.A, Robert wasn't described as the loving father and devoted Doctor. Quite the opposite. In fact, it was written that Robert and Leslie were having both money and marriage problems, and that Leslie was trying to get away from him. A witness also stated Leslie was planning to sign a lease on an apartment for herself, the day she was murdered. Unfortunately that testimony wasn’t able to make it to trial due to the witness being deemed unreliable.

Taking a look at the medical examiner's files once more, Mary and the D.A both found it odd just how forceful Leslie's injuries were. The trauma on the back of her head was so intense that it caused blood to pool in her eyes. This sort of head trauma wouldn't have been caused just by a slip in the shower. 

Nearly a year later the investigation was going full steam ahead. The Neulander home AKA the scene of the crime had been abandoned by the family, so police and investigators were able to search and collect evidence. Looking back at interview notes and realizing that things just didn't add up. One of those being that despite all of the blood in the bedroom, the sheets were immaculate. The housekeeper was quoted around this time that she swore the sheets had been changed before the police arrived.

Two years after the mysterious death of Leslie Neulander, the trial started. People were divided, however Robert and Leslie's kids stood strong on their fathers side. In fact, Jenna Neulander even took the stand to defend her father.

Jenna claimed that she sheets the housekeeper swore had been changed, were the same ones and had not been changed. What really stood out though for the prosecution was the 911 call. In it, Jenna can be heard going to check on her mother. Upon entering the bedroom she screams "oh my god there's blood everywhere" before she even sees her father carrying her mother from the bathroom.

She also claimed on the stand that while looking at her father tending to her mother, Robert took off his blood soaked shirt and tossed it to the side, seemingly to explain the random blood splatter all over the room. However, the blood soaked shirt had never been found, leaving people to believe that the missing shirt and sheets were disposed of together. Along with the murder weapon?

After three days of jury deliberation, the verdict came back guilty. In October 2019 Robert was granted a new trial based on alleged jury misconduct. He was found guilty a second time on March 1, 2022, and was sentenced to 20 years to life. Robert Neulander will be eligible for parole in 2038, when he is 86.

So, what happened to the Neulander house? The once happy home consists of six bedrooms and six bathrooms spread out over 7,982 sq ft of space. Robert sold the home in 2012. After staying on the market for a few years and being listed for rent, the Neulander home was finally sold for $852,000 in 2020. I'm sure the new owners would like to keep a low profile, which is understandable.
