Rockefeller Impostor Convicted In 1985 California Slaying

A man who posed as a member of the famous Rockefeller family was convicted of first-degree murder in the 1985 killing of a California man.

Jurors deliberated for about one day in the case of Christian Gerhartsreiter, who used several aliases that included Clark Rockefeller โ€” a name that allowed him to fraternize with members of high society after he left Southern California following the disappearance of John and Linda Sohus.

John Sohusโ€™ remains were found by a construction crew nine years after he and his wife Linda disappeared.

Gerhartsreiter, a German national, faces a penalty of 27 years to life in prison.
