David Rapoport Planned 'Surprise' For Jennifer Snyder

Court documents reveal more details of the veterinarian's alleged activities in Lower Macungie vet tech slaying case.

Newly revealed court records show that Jennifer Snyder, the vet technician who died March 16 and whose body was found March 18  in North Whitehall Township near the Lehigh Valley Zoo, received a text from veterinarian David Rapoport promising they would meet at a "surprise" location, according to a published report.

He further promised they would spend the night together, which was unusual, according to this report.

They met at Sam's Bagel and Deli at 4041 Route 309 in North Whitehall Township that night, but roommate Hilary Schiavone was worried because Rapoport had not taken the news of Snyder's pregnancy well, according to an affidavit filed in Lehigh County Court.

Snyder, 27,  and Rapoport met while they worked at  Maple Hills Veterinary Hospital in Lower Macungie Township. Rapoport, 30,  currently was a Harleysville veterinarian. He and his wife live in Upper Gwynedd Township, Montgomery County.

Rapoport, who is scheduled for his first court appearance next week on charges of homicide and homicide of an unborn child, is in Lehigh County Prison without bail.

He is accused of shooting Snyder in her car, wrapping her body in a fleece blanket that had a Philadelphia Eagles logo, dousing it with bleach and then stuffing her in garbage bags bound with duct tape, law officials have said.
