Legal The story of Hans Reiser, the eccentric file system programmer, is a tragic one. The author of the ReiserFS was arrested under suspicion of the murder of his wife Nina Reiser in 2006, and was declared guilty in April 2008. Some still placed doubts about the conviction, stating that he might be innocent. It now seems that all doubt has been quelled, since Alameda County District Attorney Thomas Orloff has revealed that Hans Reiser will disclose the location of Nina's body for a reduced sentence.

Well, the deal is still tentative and in negotiations, but it's looking like Nina's body isn't in Russia with the kids after all. So much for the conspiracy theories...

It was obvious right from the start to anybody with more than two functioning brain cells that Hans Reiser wasn't acting like an innocent man. While the evidence in his trial were "circumstantial", that's a lot of circumstantial evidence to go by.

This development comes as no surprise to me.

That was the piece that did it for me. After that I didn't have much in the way of doubt.

Anybody who ever thought there was a "conspiracy theory" was an idiot.
