The Associated Press has reported that ReiserFS author, Hans Reiser, has lead police to a site where a body believed to be Nina Reiser was buried. The site, in the Oakland Hills, is rugged and less than one mile from the home Hans Reiser shared with his mother. Reiser has maintained his innocence throughout his trial and it is unclear why he is now leading authorities to a grave believed to contain the remains of Nina Reiser.

As a Linux supporter and advocate of F/OSS it really disgusts me to learn that a prominant developer such as Reiser is involved in a murder. That, however, should be a lesson to us all that in our own little circles we are really no different than the rest of the population. There are good elements as well as the worst of the worst.
