    The fake Rockefeller - "Clark Rockefeller" - is now officially not who he says he is.  The conman father who abducted his young daughter and went on the lam for 12 days is really a German immigrant who is a person of interest in a 1985 murder trial, FBI forensic evidence confirmed today.

    A fingerprint Rockefeller left on a wine glass in July was matched to a print on immigration papers registered to a man named Christian Gerhartsreiter -- a German immigrant who was linked to the 1985 disappearance of a couple from San Marino. Police in Los Angeles determined that Gerhartsreiter was Rockefeller's real identity through a series interviews conducted last week. This, however, is the first forensic evidence.
