Linux Programmer's Defense Seizes on Confused Aftermath of Nina Reiser's Disappearance

Filed under
Reiser

Hans Reiser's defense attorney Thursday seized on the confusion in the immediate aftermath of Nina Reiser's disappearance to bolster the theory that the woman disappeared last year and was not murdered by her husband as prosecutors allege.

Defense attorney William DuBois grilled Anthony Zografos, the man Nina was dating when she vanished Sept. 3, 2006 after she dropped off her two young children to her estranged husband, the maker of once popular Linux filing systems distributed by his Oakland company, Namesys.

"When Nina originally did not respond to her voice mail messages, isn't it true you thought she may have left, to just take a break and get away?" DuBois asked Zografos, who was on the witness stand for the second day.

"I did not conclude that, actually."

"I'm asking you whether your voice messages to Nina reflect the fact that…Nina may have taken off on her own, to take a break?"

Moments later, the boyfriend replied: "I was hoping she was alive and perhaps she had left."
