Phony Rockefeller charged in L.A. slaying

A man who gained international notoriety when he kidnapped his daughter while leading a double life impersonating a member of the moneyed Rockefeller clan has been charged with murder in Los Angeles.

Prosecutors filed a criminal complaint Tuesday alleging a single murder count against Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter.

Gerhartsreiter, 50, is accused of killing John Sohus, 27, who vanished with his wife, Linda, in 1985. His dismembered remains were found nine years later as workers dug a backyard pool at a home his mother used to own in San Marino, California.

    Perfect does not exist why we even say it amazes me. Crazy devious no good down right greedy dangerous liars is more how we should look at something that sounds too good to be true. I can believe it a con is a con! Caution is not a bad word.
