Witnesses: Hans Reiser Acting Strange After Wife Went Missing

Filed under
Reiser

Two witnesses testified at Hans Reiser's murder trial Thursday they saw him acting strangely in the days following his wife's disappearance.

"When he came in, he was very nervous-like," testified Natalie Potter, a supervisor at an Oakland after-school daycare facility where the Reisers' two young children were enrolled.

"He was not calm at all," Potter added.

The testimony, elicited by prosecutors in a bid to raise doubts about the defendant's defense, came as Week 5 of the Linux programmer's murder trial was nearing conclusion.

Another witness, an Oakland neighbor, testified he saw the defendant, the operator of Namesys, wearing heavy clothes and washing down his driveway on a warm, late night two days after the wife brought over the children.

"I'm a late-night person. …Between the hours of 10 and 11 I was watering my deck plants. I could hear watering across the street. I noticed that Hans was across the street, watering his driveway," neighbor Jack Stabb testified.
