Hans Reiser

Well, I doubt this is a surprise to anyone, but the strange and tragic saga of Hans Reiser is nearing its conclusion. From The Inquirer:
Convicted murderer Hans Reiser led prosecutors and police in Oakland, California to his missing wife's body Monday afternoon, just two days before he was scheduled to be sentenced to prison, possibly for life.

The former software entrepreneur and principal developer of the ReiserFS Linux filesystem reportedly agreed to show authorities the location of his estranged wife's body in exchange for a shorter prison term. Reiser also admitted that he had strangled his wife Nina during a fight at his Oakland home in September 2006.
