BECOMING A ROCKEFELLER. Over three years ago, I posted about a story a friend had told me. He had mentioned some time before that a member of the Rockefeller family lived in his town. The post was about how it had turned out that the man was not who he said he was and that he had chosen “to lose everything in the divorce proceedings rather than to reveal his real name.” Soon the man was on the front page of the New York Post because of his kidnapping of his daughter. He is now in prison for that crime and has been charged with a murder in California from one of his previous identities. He had been posing as a Rockefeller for many years. All this is the more dramatic for me because the story began with an anecdote about a neighbor and has turned into headlines. It feels a little like a detective story in which a seemingly innocent background character turns out to be the criminal.
