Hans Reiser Murder Trial Resumes After Three-Week Recess

Filed under
Reiser

The Hans Reiser murder trial resumed here Monday after a three-week holiday recess.

On the stand throughout the entire morning was Oakland Police Department technician Bruce Christensen. He described dozens upon dozens of photos he had taken.

Some were at the Oakland hills house, including an unfinished basement where there were bags of cement. Some were of Nina Reiser's Oakland apartment and abandoned vehicle discovered blocks away. Still, others were of the Oakland house of his mother's boyfriend, where the Linux guru was arrested a month after his 31-year-old wife vanished.

Reiser Trial

Innocent until proven guilty - except you're detained in jail, and forced to wait while the gears of justice grind slowly, or in this case, not at all for 3 whole weeks while the "system" was on holiday (I'm sure it was a great "holiday" for the "not proven guilty" guy sitting in jail for that time).

Reiser Eluding Surveillance, Officer Testifies

Days after his wife went missing, Linux guru Hans Reiser performed so-called "counter-surveillance" measures to determine if somebody was following him, a law enforcement official who was tailing him testified here Monday.

Prosecutor Paul Hora put Oakland Police Department officer Shan Johnson on the stand in a bid to convince jurors that the 44-year-old developer of Linux open-source file systems was acting on a guilty conscience.
