Legal In October 2006, Hans Reiser, creator of the ReiserFS filesystem, was arrested under the suspicion of the murder of his wife, Nina, who had disappeared off the face of the earth after dropping their two children off at Hans' home. The two were divorced, and fighting a legal battle over ownership of the Namesys company and the custody of their children. Even though the body was never found, he has been declared guilty of first degree murder.

RE[3]: Nina in Russia theory

A sudden casino tour at the time of her disappearance, two blood stains, ditching a seat out of your car and washing it's insides out can't be explained by murder? I'm not saying that it's a smoking gun but it's a very reasonable explanation there.

I'm sorry, but this behaviour sounds very silly to me, wether the protagonist murdered his wife before or not.

Some aspects of his odd behaviour even speak against him being the murderer, at least in my opinion.

That said I respect the conclusion drawn by the jury. It's just not that plain simple.

p.s.: About the blood stains... backread the coverage on Wired.. they are a _very_ weak evidence..
