DNA expert called in to Reiser trial

Filed under
Reiser

A DNA expert for the defense team in the Hans Reiser murder trial said it is difficult to say how and when a small sample of blood was left on a post in the living room of Reiser's home.

Reiser's defense team called Keith Inman, a senior forensic scientist at a private firm to the stand Thursday, breaking up testimony from Reiser himself who has been on the stand for nine days.

Inman said in his opinion some of the blood on the post could have been left as a result of many things - including a cut, wound or a nosebleed. Reiser himself earlier testified his wife, Nina, popped a blood vessel in her nose at the home.

Testing has shown the blood on the post matches the DNA of Nina Reiser. It also showed there was another DNA sample, that likely belonging to Hans Reiser.

Calculate Linux Provides Consistency by Design

Calculate Linux has a rather interesting strategy for desktop environments. It is characterized by two flavors with the same look and feel.

Rather, the Calculate Linux developers did what you seldom see within a Linux distribution with more than one desktop option: They unified the design. Read more
