Reiser Admits Trying to Hide Car From Police

Filed under
Reiser

Linux guru Hans Reiser conceded in open court here Thursday he was trying to hide his car from the police in the aftermath of his estranged wife's disappearance.

It was the same, tiny 1988 Honda CRX two-seater that, when discovered by police, the passenger seat was gone. Its floorboards were soaked with an inch of water.

The 44-year-old developer of the ReiserFS filesystem said he was in the tiny town of Manteca, about 50 miles southeast of Oakland, and was searching for storage lockers to both live in and to hide his car two weeks after wife Nina Reiser vanished.

"You were there to hide your car?" prosecutor Paul Hora demanded.

"Yes."

The authorities had a search warrant for the vehicle and were looking for it, according to earlier testimony.
