Psychiatrist in Reiser Murder Trial Says Heavy Computer Users Might Have Asperger's Disorder

Filed under
Reiser

A day after the Hans Reiser murder trial drifted into the netherworld, the murder case against the Linux programmer careened Thursday into the world of psychiatry.

Defense witness and psychiatrist Beverly Parr, on the stand for the second day, testified that those who use a computer regularly "possibly" might have Asperger's Disorder. Those diagnosed with this disorder have impaired social skills.

"His activities were restricted to the computer more than I would expect," testified Parr, a family friend of the Reisers.

"What you're saying, you found his work on the computer matched one of the diagnostic features of Asperger's?" prosecutor Paul Hora asked on cross examination.

"Possibly."
