The Haverford-based realtor who, along with her husband, allegedly dumped dead animals in her neighbor's Booth Lane driveway was fired from her job at Prudential Fox and Roach last week, according to the couple's attorney.
Andrea Straub, 34, was let go on Wednesday for what defamation lawyer George Bochetto called "negative publicity" stemming from "sensational reporting" of the incident.
"Prudential Fox Roach's unfortunate termination of Andrea Straub today was precipitated entirely by CBS 3 Eyewitness News' instantaneous villification of the Straubs in their ratings-driven rush to break a story," Bochetto said in a release.
Bochetto didn't indicate what aspects of the report he and his clients are disputing, but announced he would "lay it all out" at a press conference on Tuesday.
Lower Merion Police say they have video of the couple throwing snakes and dead mice in their next-door-neighbor's driveway, plus additional tape of the Straubs knocking over "for sale" signs and cutting branches off trees on the property.
The couple was cited for disorderly conduct on June 20, at which point police say they admitted to the vandalism. While the motive for the crime isn't clear, police say the victim's home is for sale, as is the Straubs'.
Multiple media outlets, including Patch, picked the story up, but the Straubs' attorney maintains these reports are rife with misinformation.
"The Straubs are victims of horrible falsities and we will prove it in the court of law," said Bochetto in a release.
