Samuel Sheinbein, born in 1980, is an American convicted murderer, serving his sentence in Israel. On September 16, 1997, Sheinbein and a former classmate at the Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School, Aaron Benjamin Needle, killed Alfredo Enrique Tello, Jr. then dismembered and burned his body in Aspen Hill, Maryland. At age 17, Sheinbein informed a friend that he offered $5,000 for someone to kill the boyfriend of his crush and $1,000 for someone to lure his rival into a vehicle. Sheinbein sought someone to murder as practice for his intended target, according to Montgomery County State's Attorney, John McCarthy. Around the same time Sheinbein was planning to murder his rival,Needle and Tello became acquainted. Needle was introduced to his fellow Montgomery College classmate, and friend of Tello, Hannah Choi. In September 1997, Needle had gotten into an altercation with Tello in which Tello had punched Needle in front of Choi (Needle thought Choi was attractive). Choi told police that Needle appeared to be embarrassed and immediately called his friend Sam. According to McCarthy, this event lead to Needle giving Sheinbein his practice victim.
