Greenwich Roundup Readers Can't Wait For The Lazy Greenwich Time Reporters To Cover The Fake Rockefeller Case.

One Reader Has Already Thanked Us For The Greenwich Coverage In The Fake Rockefeller Case. They Also Told Us That They Are Gathering Information For A Book Proposal.

Remember how the Greenwich Time sat on the Martha Moxley Murder Mystery story and Los Angeles Detective Mark Furman had to come in a write a book called "Murder In Greenwich".

Now another Reader named


has forwarded us this email that was sent to ace reporter

Frank Girardot
(San Gabriel Valley Tribune)

We'll anyway Whoie Who's forwarded email says:

Any idea who the Minister's son was?

Chichester attended Episcopalian churches.

Chichester surfaced in 1988, when he tried to sell a truck belonging to John Sohus in Greenwich, Conn., police told "Unsolved Mysteries."

The seller used the name Christopher Crowe, the same name used on the stockbroker application, to sell the truck to the son of a local minister, who reported the episode to police after the man could not produce the truck's paperwork. Greenwich police did not return a call on Wednesday.

Subject: Episcopal Church in Greenwich CT?

I don't know Greenwich CT especially well, but I had many friends from the town & area. This looks like the kind of Church he'd attend:

It doesnt get any more Yankee than this : but The Rev. Canon Sydney A. Woodd-Cahusac (correct spelling!) was far too old - could it have been a grandson?? (Incidentally, Syd was an attorney before his late ministry - he was treasurer & house cousel to Rockefeller University.) Or was it another staff member's son?

Too young, but the current The Rev. Robert M. Alves, The Rector might help;
954 Lake Avenue, Greenwich, CT 06831 (203) 661-5526
Otherwise, other Protestant Churches in Westchester Co. (it must be there): http://www.westchestertowns.com/htm/lnk/Link0091.html

08/06/08 Did The Greenwich Police Department Question Clarke Rockeffeller Then Let Him Go Free

08/08/08 Is Frank Girardot Is Wondering Why The Lazy Greenwich Time Reporters Have Not Called Him Asking About The Fake Rockefeller

08/10/98 The Greenwich Time Won't Cover This Story On Their So-Called "News Website" So We Will Havee To Bring It To You.

  • Creepy con man Clark Rockefeller posed as the long-lost brother of serial killer David Berkowitz and tried to use the Son of Sam's Social Security number to get his Wall Street broker's license.

    The fake Rockefeller - born Christian Gerhartsreiter in Germany and jailed for allegedly kidnapping his daughter, "Snooks" - called the killer's lawyer around 1985 claiming to need information to confirm that Berkowitz, who was adopted, was the sibling he never knew, the lawyer said.

    "He said that he'd been abandoned by his family, too," said lawyer Mark Jay Heller, who is convinced that the caller was Gerhartsreiter.

    Heller refused the caller's request for a Social Security number, but the bizarre Bavarian appears to have gotten it anyway.

    A former colleague said the faker got his first finance job in 1985, with venture capitalist Stanford Phelps in Greenwich, Conn., using the name Christopher Crowe.

    Phelps fired him within a year after learning from the National Association of Securities Dealers that he had used the Social Security number of David Berkowitz, said the ex-colleague.

    When Gerhartsreiter got a job at Nikko on Wall Street, Phelps called, and again "Crowe" was fired, the trader said.

    Rockefeller's lawyer, Stephen Hrones, said his client doesn't have a memory of using Berkowitz's ID.

    At his next job, at Kidder-Peabody, Gerhartsreiter "went into his manager's office saying his parents had been kidnapped in South America and he needed to go down there to pay a ransom," the trader said.

    The next day, FBI agents showed up at Nikko, looking for "Crowe," Barnett and the trader said.

    They wanted to question him about a truck he was driving in Connecticut that was owned by John Sohus, his ex-landlord, who'd vanished with his wife, Linda, from their San Marino, Calif., home four years earlier.

    They never found "Crowe" or the truck, but in 1994 contractors digging a pool at the home unearthed three plastic bags containing a hacked-up male skeleton, according to the LA County Sheriff's Office.

Dave Copeland, who knows something about criminals and New York, makes some calls to learn about "Rockefeller's" less than illustrious career on Wall Street back in the Gordon Gekko days:

... But after two days at Lehman, Rockefeller told his supervisors that he needed to take time off to search for his parents, who he said had gone missing in Afghanistan. Sources said Rockefeller – who told co-workers at Nikko he was film director Christoher Crowe – was dismissed by Lehman. Rockefeller even invited co-workers to the Greenwich, Conn. guest house he was renting for screenings of “his” movies. Rockefeller claimed he was living in the guest house because his own home was being renovated, a claim that co-workers assumed was one of his tall tales.

Within days of his dismissal from Lehman, Connecticut State Police detectives arrived at the offices of both Lehman and Nikko looking to question Rockefeller. ...

One guess what they might have wanted to question him about. Yep.
