Church May be Given Back to Cornish

Christian Gerhartsreiter aka Clarke Rockefeller Christian Gerhartsreiter aka Clarke Rockefeller

Cornish, New Hampshire - January 8, 2009

The ex-wife of the man who called himself Clark Rockefeller has offered to give historic Trinity Church back to the town of Cornish, New Hampshire.

It turns out Rockefeller's real name is Christian Gerhartsreiter. He grabbed international headlines this summer when he kidnapped his 7-year-old daughter and became a suspect in a 20-year-old double murder investigation.

Gerhartsreiter used to live in Cornish, and bought the historic Trinity Church so the town could use the money to build a new police station.

His wife says she cannot financially support the church, and wants to give it back to the town. Selectmen said they will recommend residents accept the offer.
