In 1997, Samuel Sheinbein, a Montgomery County high school student at the time, plotted perpetrated the murder of 19-year-old Alfredo Tello Jr., in which he and an accomplice dismembered Tello’s body with a saw.
A horrific killing turned into an international incident after Sheinbein’s father aided his flight to Israel. A fight over extradition ensued, which ended with Israel’s Supreme Court’s decision that Sheinbein was technically an Israeli citizen (having inherited citizenship from his father) and would stay in the country, where he was tried for the crime and sentenced to 24 years in prison.
But, nearing parole, Sheinbein acquired a gun and got into a shootout with security guards, which left three guards wounded and him dead.
