Motive[edit]

Why is there nothing in the article about Hans Reiser's motive for killing his wife? The motive is one of the most important parts of a murder case, so seeing NOTHING AT ALL about it in this article is strange. I'm sure such information has been mentioned in earlier news articles about this case.--178.84.48.214 (talk) 19:07, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Some of it is discussed here" http://www.sfexaminer.com/sanfrancisco/reiser-killed-wife-nina-while-kids-were-downstairs/Content?oid=2143888 71.212.44.45 (talk) 05:33, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
Interesting statement. Why did the kids not hear anything when their parents were fighting upstairs? Maybe it was a common event? Why was there blood at all if he killed her by strangulation? Strange. At least this makes his motive somewhat more clear. --77.249.238.201 (talk) 05:02, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

I agree that it's weird to have no discussion of motive in a murder case. But not only that, even the method isn't discussed in the article at all! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.28.91.31 (talk) 08:17, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Pre-Trial Deal?[edit]

According to this: http://www.wired.com/2011/09/reiser-seeks-new-trial/

"Ahead of trial, Reiser was offered a three-year deal if he led police to the location where he dumped his wife’s body. In his filing, he said he didn’t want to go to prison and wanted to fight the charges so he could ultimately regain custody."

Should this be included in the article? Did I miss it? 75.165.15.36 (talk) 19:04, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

UC Berkeley at 15?[edit]

The Wikipedia article states without reservation (as fact) that Reiser was accepted at UC Berkeley at 15. Yet the reference only says that Reiser himself liked to say this in interviews, which is far from a solid factual reference to say that it is so. If this line is to stay in, it should be edited to reflect that is is something that Reiser himself claimed, but not otherwise confirmed by another source.

If it really bugs you, there is always the possibility that you can directly contact UC Berkley itself and simply ask.... getting confirmation from them as a primary source for factual data. As I've stated in above discussion above, I happen to know his family... and this particular fact was at least verified to me by his father. From that perspective, the onus of proof that he wasn't a student there rests upon finding a source which claims otherwise like a spokesman or registrar official at UC Berkley disclaiming any connection with Hans.
It certainly is a false and misleading statement to suggest that Hans has made this up, particularly something that is so easily verifiable. Most universities keep records of former students, even if they never graduated or even attended no more than a couple days of classes. --Robert Horning (talk) 04:50, 1 June 2015 (UTC)
