Fund Established for Children of Nina Reiser
A friend of Nina Reiser, an Oakland woman police believe was murdered, has helped set up an education fund for her two young children.
Ellen Doren said people who want to contribute to the fund should make out checks to "Education Fund for Rory and Nio Reiser" and send them to Education Fund for Rory and Nio Reiser, 6114 LaSalle Ave #127,Oakland, CA 94611.
Reiser, 31, a native of Russia who was trained as an obstetrician and gynecologist, was last seen about 2 p.m. Sept. 3 when she dropped off Rory and Nio at her husband Hans Reiser's home in the 6900 block of Exeter Drive in Oakland. Rory is 7 and Nio is 5.
Nina Reiser married Hans Reiser, 43, in 1999 but separated from him in May of 2004 and was granted custody of their children.
Although Nina Reiser's body hasn't been found, Hans Reiser has been charged with murdering her. He's being held in custody without bail and is scheduled to return to Alameda County Superior Court on Nov. 28 to enter a plea.
Doren said Rory and Nio are living with Nina's mother, Irina Sharanova. She said the children are still under the jurisdiction of Alameda County Child Protective Services.
