BOSTON – The man who calls himself Clark Rockefeller has won a court fight to keep jurors from hearing most of the statements he made to investigators after he was arrested in Baltimore in the kidnapping of his 7-year-old daughter.
Rockefeller, whose real name is Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter, claims he told investigators 14 minutes into a 4-hour interrogation that he didn't want to talk. He claims that invoked his right to remain silent.
A judge in Boston agreed. The 48-year-old German national is slated to go on trial next month. Authorities say he used multiple aliases after moving to the United States in the late 1970s and is a person of interest in the disappearance of a California couple in the 1980s.
