Police say he used at least 20 different aliases including William Barber, Chris Barber, and Chris James, and had five different social security numbers.
Barber swept women off their feet and then he cleaned out their savings accounts, lied to them, cheated on them, and even allegedly abused some. He told one wife he was a surgeon on sabbatical, he told one he was a former professional football player, he told another he was a Vietnam vet, and yet another he was a bio-terrorism expert. He told people he was shot in Vietnam. He said John Ashcroft was a good friend of his. He even told one wife he had leukemia. Nothing he said was true.
Donna Layne Roberts, who began the petition for the National Marriage Database, will appear with two of Barber's other wives, a former business associate and his wife, as well as Barber's sister.
