Traffic Officer Says He Saw No Blood on Reiser's Car Seat

Filed under
Reiser

A police officer testified in the Hans Reiser murder trial Tuesday he pulled over the defendant for a traffic violation nine days after the Linux programmer's wife went missing and noticed no signs the vehicle was used to dispose of a body.

The authorities have suggested Reiser, 43, possibly moved Nina Reiser's body in his tiny Honda CRX. A week after the random traffic stop, Oakland authorities discovered the vehicle drenched on the inside with the passenger seat missing. Authorities said inside the car they found a trace amount of the 31-year-old woman's blood on a sleeping bag cover.

The officer, Sgt. Eric Stasiak of the Redwood City Police Department, said the vehicle looked like the defendant was living in it. The passenger seat, he said, was in the car. The defendant's attorney claims the husband at one point removed the seat and discarded it in a dumpster to make way for the defendant to live in the 1988 vehicle.
Defense attorney William DuBois asked Stasiak whether he remembered "anything about the passenger seat that was unusual?"

"No sir."
