Criminalist Testifies That Blood Was Found In Reiser House

Reiser

Jurors judging the murder trial of Linux guru Hans Reiser were provided a glimpse into the prosecution's forensic evidence -- trace amounts of "nice shiny red" blood found inside the defendant's house -- the last place his wife Nina Reiser was seen alive.

Todd Weller, a forensic scientist with the Oakland Police Department, confirmed that the authorities found blood in the Oakland hills house nine days after the 31-year-old went missing Sept. 3, 2006.

Prosecutor Paul Hora has already told jurors that blood was found in the house, but it was the first time that a forensic specialist had said so.

Todd Weller, an Oakland Police Department criminalist, testified the blood was found on a pillar in the house. A photo of it showed the blood was about 2 centimeters long and appeared much fresher than other, flaky blood stains found inside a bathroom cabinet, Weller testified. The pillar was next to a door in the residence's entryway.

In open source, no employer worth working for will ask for official proof of your abilities. A good employer will look at what you’ve done and ask you to showcase what you can do. Yes, it still helps to have a Computer Science degree, but the lack of one is often no drawback. Read more
