(Newser) – The father who still insists on calling himself Clark Rockefeller described six days on the lam with his 7-year-old kidnapped daughter—nicknamed Snooks—as "glorious," reports the Boston Globe. But he refuses to discuss his past life using several aliases. "We had such a wonderful time," he said in a jailhouse interview. "It was like a trance. It was so glorious. It was great to be with my daughter again."

He insisted he was unclear about his past. "I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to remember," he said. "I don't lose much thought over it." Rockefeller is actually German national Christian Gerhartsreiter, and police believe he may be responsible for the disappearance of a California couple in 1985, according to officials. He has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping charges.
