    Robert Durst Said Giving Details About Missing Wife Would Be 'Pleading Guilty'

    Los Angeles prosecutors have released a transcript of a 2015 interrogation of millionaire murder suspect Robert Durst in which he says he can't provide details about the disappearance of his first wife and the murder of a close friend because it would amount to "pleading guilty."

    Durst, 73, then mused aloud about what would be in it for him to give information about the two women to investigators.

    "As I see it, all you could for me is tell me that 'this is the best prison in California and that I will recommend you go there," the real-estate heir said, according to the transcript.

    Robert Durst’s lawyer is trying to intimidate Kathie Durst’s sisters out of pursuing their $100 million wrongful death case against the killer scion, according to new court filings.

    Family attorney Robert Abrams’ accusations come in response to Durst lawyer Joshua Siegel’s allegations that Abrams leaked documents incriminating Durst to the New York Times. Siegel had additionally requested Abrams and his clients be found in contempt.

    The documents in question are a letter from former cop Edward Wright that “inculpate Durst” in the 1982 murder and disappearance of his first wife, Kathie.

    But in a raging missive, Abrams says he never leaked the publicly filed documents, and that Siegel’s “transparent and nefarious motive” is to scare the family into dropping their Long Island court case against the troubled real estate heir.

    Will a hot mic lead to jail time for real estate tycoon, Robert Durst? On Thursday, October 25th, a Los Angeles judge ordered the star of the HBO docuseries The Jinx to stand trial for the December 2000 murder of his friend Susan Berman. In the final episode of the 2015 series, Durst was caught mumbling what Judge Mark Windham called “a succinct confession” to several murders, unaware that his mic was still on. Following a two-day hearing, Windham ruled that Durst’s statement, “What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course,” along with other evidence and testimony presented by prosecutors warranted sending the case to trial, against the objection of Durst’s attorneys, who argued that no fingerprints or DNA link Durst to Berman’s death.

    Two decades after the murder of Susan Berman, her friend and former employer Robert Durst is going on trial for the crime. For years, Durst — a real estate heir and the subject of the 2015 HBO docuseries The Jinx — had denied any involvement with Berman’s 2000 murder, but was arrested for the killing in March 2015, just ahead of when the final episode of the series aired. Beyond Berman’s murder, The Jinx also told Durst’s stranger-than-fiction backstory, which involved him denying responsibility for his ex-wife’s 1982 disappearance, while admitting to dismembering a friend of his while he was living in Texas.

    There is almost no physical evidence connecting New York real estate heir Robert Durst to the slaying of his best friend in Los Angeles 20 years ago.

    What does link him to the killing of Susan Berman, though, is a cryptic note sent to police with her address and one word: “CADAVER.”

    The slip of paper intended to lead authorities to her lifeless body in December 2000 was penned by Durst. His lawyers have admitted as much. Durst himself has said more than once that only the killer or someone involved in the shooting could have written it.

    Prosecutors intend to use the note and a web of circumstantial evidence to put Durst behind bars for three killings he’s suspected of committing over nearly four decades. They will be up against a legal team that won Durst’s acquittal in one of those deaths.

    “Our defense is, one, he didn’t do it, and, two, they can’t prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he did it,” defense lawyer David Chesnoff said. “It is a highly circumstantial case and we will have strong responses to explain the circumstances.”

    Jury selection begins Wednesday in a case built around a story so sensational it inspired a feature film starring Ryan Gosling as Durst and a six-part documentary on his life that helped lead to his arrest.

    I was your typical self absorbed teenager in California when Robert Durst killed Morris Black in Galveston, TX, so I had never heard of it until recently. Now I live in Galveston. After hearing about the case via "The Jinx" a few days ago, I did what any sane person would do: I found the murder house address and headed straight there after my teeth cleaning at my dentist's office around the corner.

    The neighborhood is not a terrible one by any means; it contains a great deal of beautifully renovated historic homes and mature trees and is blocks away from Moody Mansion, Bishops Palace and The Bryan Museum, but then out of nowhere is this hideous, creepy house. Inside of this house, Mr. Durst (living in disguise as a mute woman) killed Mr. Black, dismembered him and shoved him into several garbage bags, drug him piece by piece out to the car, leaving a blood trail as he went that the police describe in the first episode of the documentary, then dumped him into the Galveston Bay.

    I have been to many creepy and/or haunted places, but this one in person is very off-putting. It looks like a real life haunted house. It gives off the most negative energy. When you see it you can easily stare for 10 minutes.

    It is located at 2213 Avenue K Galveston, TX should you ever want to see it for yourself.

    I wanted to include my personal photo of the house but the image file had my real name in it and thats no bueno for this hag, but the Zillow listing has a good picture from google earth and honestly, google earth took a better picture:

    Robert Durst's lawyers say he has bladder cancer and ask to postpone trial indefinitely

    The legal team for Robert Durst, the subject of the HBO crime documentary "The Jinx," filed an emergency motion Thursday asking for his murder trial to not resume next week, citing a "myriad of life-threatening health issues" including bladder cancer that is not being treated.

    "We are very concerned about his health," Durst's attorney Dick DeGuerin told CNN. "He's really gone down in the last year. He's been in and out of clinics and hospitals frequently."
    Durst, heir to a New York real estate empire, was present at his most recent court hearing on March 17.

    The defendant looked frail and wore a green medical mask over his face, one strap dangling below his chin. Durst spoke briefly in a high, thin voice, much weaker than when he was last heard in court.

    Citing Durst's physical incompetence, Durst's attorneys in the latest motion requested a release on bail. The LA County Sheriff confirmed to CNN that Durst is still being held in the Twin Towers correctional facility in Los Angeles.

    Durst's legal team said that he would be willing to abide by stringent conditions if released to a medical facility for treatment, including GPS monitoring, a high bail amount and paying for his own security.
    The motion argues that the criminal trial is "grueling for a healthy individual, let alone a 78-year-old man with serious health conditions, including bladder cancer, prior esophageal cancer, malnutrition, coronary artery disease with drug-eluting stents, atrial fibrillation, and chronic kidney disease."

    Jury returns to courtroom as Robert Durst’s murder trial is set to resume after pandemic delay

    It took nearly 15 years for police to arrest New York real estate heir Robert Durst in the killing of his best friend and another five to bring him to trial. After just two days of testimony, jurors were sent home when the coronavirus closed courthouses.

    On Monday, more than 14 months later, the jury is returning to Los Angeles County Superior Court to see if they can complete their assignment. If so, it could be a first for the U.S. legal system.

    The length of the stoppage is unprecedented and it’s the highest-profile U.S. case postponed because of the pandemic, Durst’s lawyers say. They have repeatedly — and unsuccessfully — sought a mistrial because they argued the delay harmed his chance of a fair trial.

    Durst, 78, has pleaded not guilty to murdering his friend Susan Berman, who was shot in the back of the head in her LA home in December 2000. Prosecutors say he silenced Berman before she could tell police she helped him cover up the killing of his wife, Kathie, in New York in 1982.

    Judge Mark Windham has called back the panel of 23 jurors, including 11 alternates, and plans to question them Monday to see if they can go forward with the case.

    New York real estate heir Robert Durst is expected to take the stand at his Los Angeles County murder trial on Thursday.

    The 78-year-old was expected to make the rare move for a defendant in a murder case and begin testimony on Wednesday, but the prosecution was still cross-examining another defense witness, memory expert Elizabeth Loftus, when court ended for the day.

    Loftus, the only other witness the defense planned to call, will be back on the stand Thursday morning, and will be followed by Durst if defense attorneys decide to go through with having him testify. His testimony would likely last several days.

    Ugh. He'll probably manage to kill a few more people before he checks out.

    Robert Durst charged with 1982 murder of wife Kathie Durst

    Millionaire real estate scion Robert Durst has been charged in suburban New York City with the death of his former wife, Kathie Durst, who vanished in 1982, authorities confirmed Friday.

    A state police investigator filed a criminal complaint on Tuesday at a town court in Lewisboro, New York, accusing Durst of second-degree murder.

    The action wasn't announced at the time by any law enforcement officials or Westchester District Attorney Mimi Rocah, who recently convened a grand jury to consider charges.

    “The Westchester County District Attorney’s Office can confirm that a complaint charging Robert Durst with the murder of Kathleen Durst was filed in Lewisboro Town Court on October 19, 2021. We have no further comment at this time,” her office said in a statement Friday.

    The grand was empaneled last week and has started hearing witness testimony, a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press this week. The person was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter and did so on condition of anonymity.

    The grand jury process had been expected to take several weeks.
