County combs new location in Reiser hunt

Filed under
Reiser

Search and rescue teams with dogs and all-terrain vehicles combed both sides of rugged Pinehurst Road in Contra Costa County on Saturday in a new search for the body of 31-year-old Nina Reiser.

Reiser, the mother of two small children, disappeared in Oakland on Sept. 3. Her husband, computer software entrepreneur Hans Reiser, 42, has been charged with her murder.

It was a follow-up to the search on the Oakland side of the hills conducted in September, said Capt. Rick Kovar, of the Contra Costa County Sheriff's office. He said about 50 volunteers, sheriff's deputies, members of the Contra Costa Search and Rescue team and others took part in the search.

Kovar said the search was conducted at the request of the Oakland Police, who believe her body may be found in the area. The area is less than three miles from Hans Reiser's residence.

Reiser pleaded not guilty last week and asked for a speedy trial.

Pro tip: Find tons of open-source Android software with F-Droid

If you're looking for truly open-source software for the Android platform, you don't have to do a ton of searching or check through licenses from within the Google Play Store. All you have to do is download a simple tool called F-Droid. With this tool, you can download and install apps (from quite a large listing) as easily as you can from the Google Play Store. You won't, however, find F-Droid in the Google Play Store. Instead, you have to download the .apk file and install it manually. Once it's installed, the rest is just a matter of searching for an app and tapping to install. Read more
