I agree Basil. There is nothing curious about the blood on the sleeping bag or the pillar at home, and everybody takes their passenger seat out on occasions and hoses down the inside of the car. Shoot, I have a couple of police murder investigation books inside my car too. None of that means I killed her.....


And lets not forget, it's always more comfortable to sleep on the
metal body structures underneath the back seat than to sleep on
the rear bench seat itself....

Reiser probably would have been better off not taking the stand.


His lawyer should be found guilty of malpractice, unless he has several CYA letter advising Reiser not to do it and Reiser refused his advise. Reiser testifying was the stupid thing that could have happened. I can't believe any lawyer (well I can, there as many bad attorneys as there are bad docs), knowing how Reiser would testify, would allow those kind of answers to be given in court. If the lawyer didn't know before hand what Reisers answers would be, then that is malpractice again.

I sure hope he papered his file after strongly advising Reiser against testifying.


Hi David,

I know you are an attorney. Good thing. I have good friends who are too. But in this case I understand Resier was totally belligerent with his own attorney, interrupted him, argued with him, constantly took him to task for "not remembering things" (my words but summary of what I read he did). How do you deal with a client like that? Won't listen. Won't shut up. He would have been better off getting off the case. What ever the situation, he couldn't control his client. Who didn't know he was a loose cannon?

What is the old saying, The man who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client.

Pitiful thing though. Convicted with little evidence. Sort of like the "what else could have happened" scenario. Her murderous boyfriend (who admitted to killing 6 people) could have done it. Hans could have done it. Who knows. No doubt he is a brilliant computer scientist, people skills not withstanding. It would be interesting at some point to find out what really happened. We may never know. Pity for her and her kids.
