Foliage on Nina Reiser's Tires 'Consistent' with Leaf in Hans Reiser's Car

Filed under
Reiser

A police officer testified in the Hans Reiser murder trial here Tuesday that foliage discovered on the tires of his missing wife's van wife was "consistent" with a leaf found inside a vehicle used by the defendant.

Oakland Police Department officer Shan Johnson testified that the material on the tires of the woman's minivan was "consistent" with a "cherry or a plum tree as well as other plants." In the small Honda Hans Reiser was borrowing from his mother, the authorities found a single leaf "consistent with a cherry tree material," Johnson testified.

The officer was grilled on cross examination by defense attorney William DuBois, who wanted to debunk any connection between what was found on the woman's van and inside the car that the 44-year-old Hans Reiser was driving.

"Did you ever determine the source of that leaf? What cherry tree it came from?"
