Defendant Christian Gerhartsreiter from Germany sits during jury selection for his murder trial at Los Angeles Superior Court on March 15, 2013 in Los Angeles, California. Gerhartsreiter, the alleged Rockefeller impostor is accused of killing his landllord, John Sohus, in February 1985.

Remember the curious story of German immigrant Christian Gerhartsreiter?

Gerhartsreiter is a con-man who masqueraded as a member of the wealthy Rockefeller clan; It was just one of many identities he's assumed. He was unmasked in 2008 when he was arrested for kidnapping his seven-year-old daughter and leading police on an international manhunt. He now faces murder charges in the 1985 death of a San Marino man.

For more we're joined now by Mark Seal, author of a book about Gerharsreiter called "The Man in the Rockefeller Suit."
