    I knew I would hear more about this guy. In 1990, my German housemate brought "Professor" Gerhardt, a lecturing physicist from Cal Poly to our house to stay for a few days while he waited on his grant. By the end of the week, me and my girlfriend teamed up and made the housemate get him out. He ended up for another week living in a tent in the backyard. Then, after about $2000 borrowed from the housemate, even he had enough and sent "the professor" packing. What I will observe, is that while Gerhardt was a true sociopath, in that he had no understanding that people had feelings or even awareness. It was like we were just dolls and he was a child manipulating and playing with people with no regard for their welfare. Yet, still I don't feel he was ever thinking or planning on killing anyone. It's more likely that he would convince someone else to kill that couple for him. That it came from something unexpected. Also, I can't imagine him getting dirty by deigning to dig a grave himself, he'd find someone else to do that. He's guilty of far more than any court will ever know, but maybe not murder.

    Ah, happy to learn of the book and of the trial; and yes of those University of Wisconsin bags! Frank -- didn't you find a deceased Jane Doe in Tennessee, 6 foot tall with strawberry blonde hair?

    Is there a place where we can go to exchange questions and theories about the case?

    This sounds like an instant classic that will transcend the self-publishing industry and possibly solve the crime itself. Mr. Girardot's work is legendary in the local news community for being masterfully typed and exceedingly competent. The Clark Rockefeller case is important to America--it reflects what happens when a man of little talent or self-awareness attempts to over-compensate with shameless grandiosity. Such an approach to life can result in unspeakable acts, such as those likely chronicled in this work. I hope the true identity of this con man is revealed.
