Reiser's son afraid to return to U.S.

Filed under
Reiser

Attorneys for Nina Reiser's mother say Nina's son is afraid to return to the U.S. from Russia because of all the trauma he has suffered since Nina disappeared, a social services worker testified today.

In her third day on the witness stand in Hans Reiser's trial on charges that he murdered Nina, who was last seen alive on Sept. 3, 2006, social services investigator Seng Fong said there are concerns about 8-year-old Rory Reiser's mental health status, according to attorneys for Irina Sharanova, Nina's mother.

Sharanova has custody of the Reisers' two children, Rory and his sister Nio, and is raising them in St. Petersburg, Russia, which is where Nina lived before she married Hans and came to the U.S.

re: Reiser trial

Maybe the son's just afraid that if he returns to the States he'll never see his Mom again.

Funny how everyone says that Nina Reiser would NEVER abandon her kids, then guess what, the kids are living in Russia and Mom's no where to be found in the US.

re: Reiser trial

That would just suck if he got convicted and she really was alive.

re: Reisr trial

That's the problem/danger with allowing a aggressive District Attorney that's worried more about PR and their unsolved murder rate (i.e. politics) then they are about having REAL facts to go to trial (i.e truth and justice).

I'm no fan of Reiser, the guys such a flake he makes Steve Jobs seem like a Dale Carnegie graduate - but I don't care about the person, I care about the facts (or in this case, the complete lack of any solid evidence what so ever including proof that the person in question is actually dead).

re: Reisr trial

I was so quick to assume his guilt when the sh*t first hit the fan, but in following the trial I've come to see how circumstantial the evidence really is. It's strong circumstantial and his behavior was and is highly suggestive, but I do have a small degree reasonable doubt.

Yeah, you're right, I'd feel a lot better if they had a body. I'm glad I'm not one of the jurors.

I still believe in the death penalty, but I've come to be quite leery of it with all the cases that have been overturned due to new DNA evidence. I suppose I'd rather see a guilty man go rather than see an innocent convicted.

re: Reiser trial

I don't think she is alive. But I still don't think he meant to kill her. As I've said before, it probably started as small fight regarding the kids and then things got out of hand and he accidentally killed her.
