Fresh Details on Mystery Man Clark Rockefeller as Trial Opens

If Rockefeller is not insane, he is certainly odd. FBI profilers noted that he does not use metal utensils, will not eat bread unless it is white Pepperidge Farm with the crusts cut off, and that he met Sandra Boss at a Clue party where she was dressed as Scarlett O'Hara and he was Colonel Mustard. The two fell for one another while speaking Klingon, the language spoken by some on the TV series "Star Trek."

Prosecutors believe Rockefeller is not only sane, but a savvy schemer. Conley claims Rockefeller planned the kidnapping of his daughter months in advance.

While visiting his daughter with a social worker along, a car pulled up and Rockefeller tossed his daughter into the vehicle, pushed the social worker to the ground, and sped off.

ABC News learned that Sandra Boss had also hired a private detective to shadow Rockefeller during the visit, but the detective quickly lost the fleeing car.

Alleged Con Man Known as Rockefeller Eyed for California Double Murder

Boss, a Harvard Business School graduate, divorced Rockefeller in 2007, and gave him $800,000 in a settlement that allowed her ex-husband to see their daughter just three times a year with a social worker present.

She told investigators she realized Rockefeller was a liar when she hired a forensic investigator to pour through their finances and learned that her husband was broke.

Investigators have since learned Rockefeller is a person of interest in the slayings of a newlywed couple he once lived with at their home in California; that he married a Wisconsin woman and then later fled the state; that he was an exchange student who lived with families in Connecticut; and that he applied for a broker's license using the name Christopher Chichester.

There is currently a grand jury investigation into the unsolved slayings. Denner has asked a judge not to allow jurors to hear about that case or about Rockefeller's other aliases.
