Person of interest sought in Randi Gorenberg slaying

There is a new person of interest being sought in the killing of Randi Gorenberg in March 2007, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.  Fugitive Michel Barrera will be featured on Saturday's edition of "America's Most Wanted" for a series of other crimes.  But a confidential informant has linked Barrera to the Gorenberg slaying, according to Deputy Eric Davis.  Guy Fronstin, the attorney for the victim's husband, Dr. Stanley Gorenberg, said they first heard about Barrera two months ago.   "Dr. Gorenberg and the family are hopeful that it will lead to an arrest and give them the closure they need and help their grieving", Guy Fronstin says.

Palm Beach Post - May 26, 2011 / Ex-millionaire arrested on fraud charges, By Jane Musgrave

Ex-millionaire arrested on fraud charges

Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Karen Miller has in the pat told former multimillionaire Brett Cormier that she didn't believe his claims of poverty. Cormier was arrested Monday and charged with four counts of financial fraud after prosecutors said he lied in court documents in an effort to stick taxpayers with the bill for his defense on charges that he stole roughly $1.9 million from former business partners. Cormier has claimed he has no money. He displayed a food stamp card from the state and an eviction notice from his landlord. He also pointed to his personal bankruptcy, finalized in February. Attorney Guy Fronstin, who represented Cormier on the grand theft charges before Cormier stopped paying him, said he talked to his former Client shortly before his arrest. "He stands by the statements he made. Everything he put in the documents is true and correct," Fronstin said. Although not familiar with the basis for the new charges, Fronstin said he is convinced Cormier is broke.

Palm Beach Post - May 20, 2011 / Goodman seeks to postpone parent's wrongful-death suit in fatal crash, saying it would jeopardize defense in criminal case, By Jason Schultz

Goodman seeks to postpone parent's wrongful-death suit in fatal crash, saying it would jeopardize defense in criminal case

Polo club founder John Goodman wants to postpone the wrongful death lawsuit he faces in connection with the crash that killed 23 year old Scott Wilson; at least until he's finished dealing with the criminal charges.  One of Goodman's lawyers, Guy Fronstin, argues that letting the suit proceed would violate his constitutional rights.  Wilson's parents filed the wrongful death suit last month, and Goodman's civil attorney of West Palm Beach argued in court papers that any statements Goodman made countering the suit could be used by prosecutors in the criminal trial. "It will effectively destroy his constitutional right against self incrimination."  Asking to delay civil proceedings because of a criminal trial is not unprecedented.

More questions about Michael Dippolito's finances

Yet Dalia Dippolito had a point about Michael's financial dealings. It's unclear why he could afford his house, fancy cars, etc. but could not pay his restitution. One of his fraud victims, who invested $20,000.00 in Dippolito's foreign currency scams says. Michael Dippolito's probation officer has declined to comment on the case. The Juice left a voice mail for Dippolito's attorney, Guy Fronstin, this morning.

Graphic text messages of Boynton Beach woman accused of trying to kill Husband are released

An attorney for Michael Dippolito, Guy Fronstin, said his Client remembers getting calls from a paralegal giving advice.  Fronstin said Dippolito had no idea his wife was having an affair with one man, or more, and that he believed he was in a strong, loving relationship.  "It was devastating to him to hear all of this," Fronstin said. "Earth-shattering. He is now seeing a professional therapist."

Sun Sentinel - March 22, 2011 / Palm Beach County detectives still searching for killer in 4-year-old case
After four years, detectives are still looking for Randi Gorenberg's killer. She was shot in the head and dumped in a park west of Delray Beach on March 23, 2007.

"We have good physical evidence," said Detective Michelle Romagnoli, of the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. "It hasn't led us to identifying someone yet. When we have our suspect, we will know."

Gorenberg, 52, was last seen near the Neiman-Marcus store at the Town Center mall in Boca Raton about 1:16 p.m.

Thirty-eight minutes later, a witness heard gunshots and saw the mother of two pushed out of her Mercedes-Benz SUV at Gov. Lawton Chiles Memorial Park on Morikami Park and Jog roads, about 5 miles from the mall.

Surveillance cameras recorded her SUV entering the Home Depot parking lot at Atlantic Avenue and Jog Road, less than 2 miles from where her body was dumped. The SUV was abandoned behind the Home Depot.

Gorenberg was robbed of her purse, shoes and phone. Her credit card numbers later were used in Connecticut and Massachusetts.

"We want to keep it fresh in everyone's mind," Romagnoli said. "This is definitely a case that we need the public's assistance. She was a true victim. She was just minding her own business."

Gorenberg lived with her husband, Stewart, and son in the Boniello Acres community west of Boca Raton. The year after her homicide, Sheriff's Office detectives said her husband may have been the intended target.

Stewart Gorenberg has been uncooperative with investigators and hasn't asked for updates on the case, authorities said. His attorney, Guy Fronstin, could not be reached for comment Tuesday, despite attempts by phone and email.

The widower has also lost touch with Randi Gorenberg's mother, Idey Elias. She said she thinks about her daughter daily and writes her a letter every night.

"It's just very hard without her," Elias said. "If we could find out who or why [Gorenberg was killed], maybe it would help a little bit. It's just one of those things. You question God and everything, and you blame yourself and you don't know what to think about it."

She clings to the hope that someone saw something at the mall that day. Someone who hasn't reached out to investigators yet, but will now.

Deputies ask anyone with information about this crime to call Detective Michelle Romagnoli at 561-688-4065 or Crime Stoppers at 800-458-8477.
