AI2 SUNDAY, MAY 4, 1997 NATION THE SALINA JOURNAL MURDER Lawyer found slain in bathtub We/A SKove The CUPBOARD 2 911 B. West Crawford, Salina Loved ones mourning death of promising young lawyer, mother By DINAH WISENBERG BRIN The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — She was a young lawyer with a growing family and a promising career, and had planned to celebrate her daughter's first birthday this weekend. Instead, loved ones and friends are mourning Stefanie Newman Rabinowitz, who was found strangled in the bathtub of her suburban home this week. She was 29. "She was a wonderful person, good-natured, happy. She loved her job. Her daughter was a big part of her life," said Mitchell Bach, partner at the downtown office where Rabinowitz first worked as an intern in 1991. "I can't imagine her without a smile on her face," Bach said Saturday. Rabinowitz's husband, Craig, found her Tuesday evening in a water-filled tub in their house in Merion Station, a community in Philadelphia's well-heeled Main Line suburbs, officials said. Their young RABINOWITZ in 1992 daughter was home at the time. An autopsy showed she was strangled. Police would not comment on whethfer there was evidence of sexual assault and would not discuss suspects. "It's too early to start talking about suspects. We're still trying to find out what happened, who would have an opportunity to kill her and who would have a motive," prosecutor Bruce L. Castor Jr. said Saturday. Investigators had not determined whether Rabinowitz was slain in the tub in her two-story brick and stone house. A man answering the phone there Saturday refused comment, saying only, "We're not interested in talking to you." Next door neighbor Barbara Fishbein said she had exchanged neighborly greetings with the couple every day. "These were two of the most wonderful people that I've ever known. I saw them every day.... I think that this is really horrible, this intrusion into their lives," she said, refusing further comment. Rabinowitz had gone to work Tuesday. "It was a normal day," Bach said. "She seemed fine." Nothing about the type of work she did — handling insurance defense and commercial litigation — should have put her in any danger, according to Bach, who said Rabinowitz never gave any indication that anyone was threatening her.
