Hans Reiser Leads Police To Nina's Body

kdawson posted about 6 years ago | from the removing-all-doubt dept.

The Courts 1523

jlmcgraw was the first to alert us that Hans Reiser has led police to the location in the Oakland Hills where he buried the body of his wife Nina. (We discussed the rumor that he would do so last month.) SFGate.com reports that remains were recovered but have not yet been identified. Reiser is to be sentenced on Wednesday. CBS5 claims that Reiser made a deal for a reduced sentence, to 15 years, in exchange for revealing the body.

This doesn't prove he's guilty. He may have had knowledge of the murder, and use that to reduce the sentence. I still have faith that the real story will come out.

AvitarX (172628) | about 6 years ago | (#24093355)

Wasn't it more a matter of reasonable doubt?

I think most thought it was more likely than not that he did it. Just that there were reasonable alternative theories (ran away to frame him, insane best friend that claims to have murdered people still alive are 2 that I can think of).

Re:Okay there you go (5, Insightful)

There are two archetypes of nerds, which oddly parallel serial killer archetypes: disorganized and spontaneously creative vs organized and methodically calculating.

The M.O. he demonstrated in the crime indicates the disorganized type.

If he were the methodical type, his crime might not have even been noticed.

Just the same, I still believe that those of us who didn't jump onto the 'lynch him!' bandwagon exercised proper caution in being hesitant about declaring someone a murderer.

I held out so much hope all during the trial process that Hans wasn't guilty. And even after he'd been convicted, I held onto the cynical thought that Nina was alive and well somewhere in Russia, laughing at all of this, and that someday it would all be revealed as a fraud.

Good luck, Hans.

Personally, because I'd have liked to have seen her turn up alive and well. A living person is better than a dead person any day.

Sadly, circumstantial evidence or not, the guy was clearly guilty as all hell from minute one. Even the weirdest, most anti-social geek I know doesn't do the strange shit he pulled in the days following her murder.

Well, I think perhaps the best luck would be some sort of (true) sorrow, remorse, repentance, things like that, ending and eventually emerging from prison a better person and then going on to lead the rest of his life quietly contributing to some crazy experimental codebase of some sort. Why not?

Good luck? The man is a fucking murderer. I don't care if he's fucking Linux God and able to write programs just by looking at them, he's a despicable human being and deserves no luck at this point.

It makes me sad too, it makes me sad that he did it, it makes me sad that he thought he could get away with it, it makes me sad that he actually used the "I'm too smart to know what I did" defense, and now he's going to pay the price. I'm not sad for that.

This ain't no victimless crime.

I used to have an attitude like that, but by definition anyone who behaves that way is obviously mentally ill, and probably a jail term is only going to make things worse for him. I'm not sure there is alternative though...

And that's what makes me sad, I don't think that there is an answer to the question 'what could have been done beforehand to prevent this?'. You can't just go locking people away because they are a bit (or a lot) arrogant and nerdy - slashdot's user base would disappear overnight! Maybe we need that 'voice in your head' ray gun pointing at people 24/7 with a message 'thou shalt not kill. thou shalt not kill. thou shalt not kill. (drink pepsi).'

Hopefully the kids are now in a more stable environment...

I'm not a Christian. I don't believe in forgiveness nor do I believe in rebirth. But I do believe in revenge.

Can you give one reason outside of Christian morality that this man shouldn't be tortured? Please note that the "he might be innocent" excuse just walked out of the door. And don't use the "we'll become monsters too" excuse because it is based on Christian morality (because there is nothing special about humanity).

The concept of justice requires him to be tortured and executed.

Without my response to the original comment, we would have only focused on the evil. It's people like that who put the focus on the evil deeds, only talking about the statistical odds of bad people instead of the good when I believe that the majority of people are good. I think human nature makes people have to try extra hard to be evil especially if you don't want to get caught.

Why? I can understand (but still disagree with) someone being hesitant to use medical research found by amoral means: you know in the back of your mind that you're directly benefiting from someone loss. I disagree because refraining from using it doesn't help the victims or anyone else - may as well make their loss mean something. (Especially if the research can save lives!) Just don't condone it happen again. In this situation, though, I can't comprehend at all the hesitation for using his FS. It wasn't built on Nina's body - if Nina and Hans made up and lived happily ever after we'd still have his FS. It's just related loosely-ish to a wrongdoing - it wasn't the cause or result. If his file system fits your needs (say, you have lots of small files that need to be moved around quickly) go ahead and use it. Using his FS does not mean you support murder.

If you stopped using quality products because of the nature of some of those involved in their design and production, you'd probably be naked, and starving.

Bottom lne: Hans tried to bullshit them, and they saw through it. If he had shut his moutn, maybe he would have walked, but he thought he could "put one over" on a bunch of "dumb jurors."

He forgot that jurors don't have to be smarter than the accused - in his case, all they needed was a baloney-meter.

With things like this coming out, it is going to be much, much harder to find a wonderful woman. Let alone getting 1000 points in an hour playing Team Fortress 2.

Its a sad ending to a painful story, but I'm glad we have closure.

Whatever, shes dead.
Good, she deserved it.

She cheated on him with his best friend, Sean Sturgeon.
She stole money from his company.
She conspired with Sean Sturgeon to steal his company.
She as a mother was irresponsible and was abusing illegal substances. She did ecstasy with Sean Sturgeon.

I hope Hans Reiser can get a laptop with an internet connection so that he can continue his development of his great file system!

Go Hans Reiser! You're the man!

Wow, he murdered someone? Big deal. She never did anything for me anyways.
Hans Reiser on the other hand provided me with a really great file system. Thanks man!

Thank You *2 (-1, Troll)

Thank you, Hans, for testifying. Thanks again for leading police to your wife's body.

Now, Hans, don't be thinking of ways to convince people that you're innocent after this . . .

I can't believe a brain that cunning would be so stupid.

I entertained the idea of ReiserFS at one point but decided to go with ext3 even though I had a ton of small files. I think even the looming doubt of his guilt was enough.

This sucks, apparently he failed to traverse the tree of future consequences to a sufficient depth or chose a really bad pruning mechanism for said tree. Sorry, bad joke, had to do it.
