Kidnap suspect calls days with daughter ‘glorious’

The Associated Press

BOSTON–The man who calls himself Clark Rockefeller and is accused of kidnapping his young daughter says he spent “six glorious and wonderful days” with the girl while evading authorities, but he still isn’t talking about his life before 1993.

Police say Rockefeller is really a German immigrant named Christian Gerhartsreiter. California authorities want to question him about a couple who disappeared in 1985.

Gerhartsreiter has pleaded not guilty to charges of kidnapping his daughter, Reigh Boss, on a Boston street during a supervised visit in July after losing custody of her to his ex-wife, Sandra Boss. A Berlin, Conn. family says they believe Gerhartsreiter lived with them in 1980 as a visiting student from Germany.
