    (circa 1937- )
    Math teacher at Crystal Springs School for Girls
    Was engaged to Patty Hearst at the time of her kidnapping by the Symbionese Liberation Army (February 4, 1974)
    Later became a real estate agent
    He began having sex with Patty when she was a 17-year-old student and he was her 33-year-old teacher.
    When the SLA kidnappers broke into their apartment, he yelled, ‘Take anything you want!’
    He bolted from the apartment so fast that he knocked out the screen from the back door.
    His frequent talking to the press eventually caused Patty’s parents to cut off contact with him, with her father Randy complaining, ‘You just aren’t housebroken.’
    In a classic example of damning with faint praise, he called Patty ‘the prettiest of the Hearst daughters’ before adding, ‘But then, none of them are raving beauties.’
    Asked by an interviewer if he would be willing to take Patty’s place as a hostage, he lamely replied, ‘It depends on the circumstances. I wouldn’t rule it out.’
    About the only thing the Hearst Family, the FBI and the SLA had in common was their contempt for Weed.
    SLA leader Donald DeFreeze whacked him over the head with a sap.
    DeFreeze had initially demanded, ‘Where’s the safe?’ so Weed probably figured he was dealing with robbers instead of kidnappers.
    He had to put up with Patty’s mother, Catherine, saying things like ‘No one would have carried my daughter off if there’d been a real man there’ in his presence.
    He got publicly dumped by Patty, who called him her ‘ex-fiancé’ (not to mention a ‘sexist, ageist pig’) on the tapes she recorded for her SLA captors.
