Episode 315 - Christian Gerhartstreiter: The Talented Mr Mountbatten
Listen now
In 1994, in the back garden of a house on Lorain Road, San Marino, California – workers accidentally unearthed a shallow grave containing dismembered human remains.  Investigators were convinced that the discovery had something to do with a charming British man who’d lived at the property a decade before. Not only had he been a member of the British royal family, a celebrated actor, a director, an art collector, a physicist and a naval captain… but he was also a member of the Rockefeller family – with the same social security number as serial killer David Berkowitz… Today’s case covers the sociopathic life of the conman, kidnapper and murderer, Christian Gerhartstreiter – who some have called the real-life Talented Mr. Ripley.
