Missing: Randy Amanda Lehrer

Susan Murphy Milano has two speeds:

Fast, and Faster.

With a mind that functions like a micropresser  she computes and multi-tasks intellectually better than most.  This will be covered tonight on the Dr. Roth Show as well as updates on the case of Susan Cox.

Article by Susan Murphy Milano followed by CBS news article on the case.  It appears that the husband has taken a page out of the Josh Powell school of coverup:  don't speak.  This is what guilty parties in missing persons cases do:  they withhold information ,and find any excuse not to speak to law enforcement, including blaming law enforcement.  When a child or wife goes missing, the parent or spouse has a reason not to cooperate.  Supporters often rally around the individual who does not cooperate, only to learn later the guilt which caused them to be silent.


Clear and Present Danger:  Randy Amanda Lehrer

by Susan Murphy Milano

The husband not cooperating with law enforcement in the disappearance of Randy Amanda Lehrer. In my opinion, as in each case of intimate partner violence, the young mother of a ten month old girl is missing because her husband, unable to contain his rage and be a man, made sure she would never be seen alive, again.
The last time anyone in the public saw her was Friday August 12th around 2:00 o'clock in the afternoon when the husband showed up with her daughter at the restaurant where she worked in Jersey City and they got into a heated public argument according to eye-witnesses.
No surprise the husband who likely watches far too may crime shows, claims they got into an argument on Saturday the 13th and she just stormed off. On Monday, the 15th Randy does not show up for work. The husband calls her boss and says "Randy has returned home to Canada to take care of her sick mother." I have to say calling the boss is "telling" in this case. It goes to his frame of mind, calculation of the criminal act in my opinion committed because his wife, Randy Lehrer was in the process of ending their relationship.
The husband, Steven Acuna does not file a missing persons report until Wednesday, August 17, 2011. Maybe he feels uneasy about filing a report on someone with whom he has direct knowledge as to where she can be found. I should mention, he now has a lawyer. Translation as it relates directly to intimate partner violence homicides, he is not talking!
The detective's working this case are doing an amazing job from investigating to passing out flyer's and getting together a $3,000 reward. But they need more help. I was just in New Jersey training law enforcement on enhanced procedures as it relates to Intimate Partner Violence and crime scene investigation, I would available to lend a hand my email address is Another suggestion, they should consider contacting the CUE center for missing persons to register the case directing search teams to aid them on the ground. The number to call is 910-232-1687 or visit the Website at
There has been not been much news coverage on this case. I am asking the social media, twitter and websites to post information on the case. Someone had to see or hear something. And the more we can all get the word out will result in justice for a woman whose voice was silenced because she wanted to move forward minus the violence.
We will be discussing this case and others involving intimate partner crimes, Wednesday, September 7, 2011 with Peter Hyatt, Investigator and Statement Analysis Expert at 7:00 PM Eastern time on The Roth Show.

1010 WINS’ Terry Sheridan Reports On The Search

Police say 32-year-old Randy “Amanda” Lehrer was last seen on August 16, leaving behind 10-month-old daughter Stephanie and husband Steven Acuna. Police said Acuna was last person to see her and isn’t cooperating with investigators.
Officials say Lehrer’s husband initially said she stormed out of their Jersey City home but he waited at least three days until Wednesday to report her missing. He now says he will not cooperate with police without speaking to a lawyer first.
“We have been delayed, because of a lack of cooperation on his part, has forced us to seek court orders, subpoenas and warrants to do our job,” said Chief Tom Comey of the Jersey City PD.
“We worked together 10 hours a day, you know? I’m really worried, I am,” said Donna Scocco, Lehrer’s friend and coworker at Tommy’s Restaurant.

Asked is she believes Lehrer would leave her baby behind, Scocco told CBS 2′s Tony Aiello “Never in a million years. No way. Nope. No. I’m sorry.”
Co-workers said Acuna called the restaurant on Monday to say Lehrer left to care for her sick mother, but when the restaurant called Amanda’s family in Canada, they said her mother was fine, and the husband’s claim just wasn’t true.

“Sounds crazy to me. Makes it sound like he had something to do with it, he knows something,” said neighbor Amy Scarola.

Police have searched the couple’s home on Charles Street. Where neighbors often heard them fighting.

“They would argue a lot and I remember actually seeing her last week, and she kicked him out, she told him don’t ever come back I don’t want to see you,” said neighbor Janaya Henry.

“We are very concerned for her safety,” Comey said.

Police have found no evidence of foul play but fear that may be the case. Anyone who has seen Amanda Lehrer is urged to call police at (201) 547-JAIL. She was last seen wearing a black Ed Hardy t-shirt and has a tattoo on her right shoulder that says “Laugh Now, Cry Later.”
