Nina had vanished. But was it really murder?
On 28 April 2008, Hans Reiser was found guilty of first-degree murder. But, as a deal, if he revealed the location of Nina’s body, he could plead guilty to second-degree murder.
He led police to a grave half a mile from his home, where Nina’s skeleton lay.
She’d been strangled.
Reiser was sentenced to 15 years to life.
Sean Sturgeon made up all his murder confessions – there’s no evidence he killed anyone.
