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.

My post seems to have got you quite wound up about all of the people in Europe so perhaps I should explain it a little more: Just because someone says they are going to reveal where the body is, does not prove that they have committed the crime. When he does actually reveal the body, then the probably of him committing the crime approaches 100%. There is the remote possibility that he didn't commit the crime, has gone out of his mind and decided he is going to pretend to lead them to the body and attempt to escape.

I do not know Hans and do not care about what happens to him and I am certainly not one of his fans...
