    While wearing a mic for his interview with the documentary filmmakers, he went into the bathroom and started whispering to himself. Among his ramblings, he said "why do they hate me? Because I killed them all."

    ah, okay. I saw some links being shared on facebook that referred to "kill them all" but never got a chance to read them.

    The Ryan Gosling movie "all good things" details this story .... Kirsten Dunst played the wife ... I am a fan of Gosling and I found this obscure movie that did not do well at the box office. You guys might want to check it out.

    Yeah, the movie was directed by the same guy who did the HBO documentary. After seeing it, Durst reached out to him and asked if he wanted to tell 'the real story'.

    His ego got the best of him ... I still can't believe a Texas jury found him not guilty of the murder and dismemberment of his neighbour ... unbelievable.

    I watched the last of the documentary last night. When he went in the bathroom still mic'd up, I thought of one of the naked gun movies where leslie Neilson pee's for 10 minutes while he is mic'd. When he says they caught me, I've fucked up I started wondering if it can be used against him in the court of law.

    Amazing the bathroom recording went unnoticed for so long. I'll be looking for that movie on netflix tonight.

    The documentary is on demand on HBO. It's called the jinx.

    First they apologize for confused Fred Durst with Robert Durst, then they have to apologize AGAIN for calling Fred Durst the "former" lead singer of Limp Bizkit.

    I appreciate the hilarious police sketch but this information was posted on the page right before this and since this case has the potential to blow the thread up pretty big (high publicity), can everyone please just read back at least three or four pages before posting to make sure they aren't repeating information? Not singling you out,m Sneakers, just nipping this in the bud before it carries on. Shins, I believe Sneakers already posted about the Fred Durst thing, as well. Just reply to those quotes.

    Thanks.

    Also as I mentioned on the last page, I seriously doubt this guy murdered those girls. He tended to obviously snap at people who were close to him, and his murders were marked by intimacy interrupted by paranoia. He wasn't a hunter.

    Now that you said that, no one's going to come back!


    Sorry if you already mentioned it, but do you think the murders/deaths were all just coincidental? What specifically makes you think he didn't do it, or is that just your educated guess but you still think it's possible he did?

    No, I think his particular MO doesn't match the kind of killer's psychological profile that stalks and murders anonymous women. He kills people he has deeply personal relationships with, most likely because something inside of his mind tells him that these relationships have turned sour, antagonistic, and 'against him'. He doesn't just kill to satisfy a homicidal urge. He feels persecuted and turned on.

    I gotta agree with Bowie on this one.

    Yes. Tell me that one of these girls was Durst's neighbor, dogwalker or barista. Tell me that she had some sort of ongoing relationship with him and I'll buy that he might have harmed her. But he's no Ted Bundy.

    Inevitably, when someone with a body count gets a high profile arrest, there is a desperate attempt to pin other unsolved murders on him if he was in the vicinity when they were committed.

    I guess I'm really confused on something because I thought the only people who were killed were people who were close to him. Of which I do believe he killed them, and for the exact reason you stated - because he felt deeply personally betrayed by them, not like he was this random mass murderer.

    Nvm - I just saw the article on the two young girls. The article I read yesterday only talked about the ex wife, friend, etc.

    I would be really surprised if he had anything to do with the girls. Doesn't fit the script.

    Robert Durst's Louisiana gun case to proceed

    A judge rejected the Durst family scion's motion to dismiss evidence in the case

    Before he can travel to California to face trial for murder, Robert Durst will have to resolve the gun possession charge that's kept him under lock and key since March.
    A Louisiana judge rejected Durst's legal team's motion to dismiss evidence in the Durst family scion's lesser-known criminal proceeding, ruling that the search that unearthed the .38-caliber revolver was legal.
    Durst faces a maximum 10 year sentence in the case. His team still has a chance to appeal the ruling or offer a plea bargain.
    Otherwise the case will proceed to trial next year, the New York Times reported.

    Durst, the subject of the HBO documentary series "The Jinx," is accused of murdering a close friend, Susan Berman, in 2000. He was found not guilty of murdering a neighbor in Galveston, Texas in 2003, despite admitting to have dismembered the man's body.
    This past weekend, "The Jinx" co-creator Andrew Jarecki said the Durst family could have helped prevent those two murders.
    Durst was also a suspect in the disappearance of his then-wife, Kathleen Durst, in 1982. [NYT] - Ariel Stulberg

    Robert Durst Pleads Guilty in Gun Case, Setting Up Possible Murder Trial

    Robert A. Durst’s luck may be running out.

    Mr. Durst, the estranged scion of a New York real estate family who has long been a suspect in several murders, pleaded guilty in New Orleans federal court on Wednesday to illegally possessing a .38-caliber revolver.

    In March 2015, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, fearing that Mr. Durst was about to flee the country, arrested him at the JW Marriott Hotel on Canal Street, where he had registered under an alias. During a search, they discovered a handgun. Because Mr. Durst, 72, is a felon, it is illegal for him to possess a firearm.

    His arrest came as the cable channel HBO was broadcasting a six-part documentary about him, which turned him into a notorious national figure.

    Under a plea bargain arrangement, Mr. Durst will be sentenced to 85 months in federal prison, pending final approval by Judge Kurt D. Engelhardt of United States District Court, who is now handling the case.

    Mr. Durst will eventually be transferred to federal prison, most likely to Terminal Island, outside of Los Angeles, to face charges that he murdered a former confidante, Susan Berman. Under the plea agreement, the prosecution has to arraign Mr. Durst by Aug. 18.

    Robert A. Durst was indicted on gun charges in New Orleans after the authorities found a .38-caliber revolver in his hotel room. He pleaded guilty on Wednesday.

    Mr. Durst faced a maximum prison sentence of 10 years and a fine of $250,000.

    “We got everything we wanted out of the way so we can get to California,” Mr. Durst’s lead lawyer, Dick DeGuerin, said. “We want to go to trial and prove that he didn’t kill Susan Berman and doesn’t know who did.”

    Mr. Durst, who appeared so thin that his shackles kept slipping below his waist, responded to questions from the judge in a weak, raspy monotone.

    The resolution of the Los Angeles case could finally cast light on the mysteries that have enveloped Mr. Durst for the past 34 years.

    Mr. Durst is the oldest son of Seymour Durst, whose family owns a dozen skyscrapers in Manhattan. Robert Durst broke with his family in 1994, after his father and uncle picked his younger brother Douglas to take over the business.

    Mr. Durst’s first wife, Kathleen, disappeared in 1982, and the authorities believe he killed Ms. Berman to ensure she did not reveal what she knew about what happened to Ms. Durst.

    Over the years, Mr. Durst, who is worth more than $100 million, has benefited from some of the best defense lawyers money could buy. He was never charged in the disappearance of his first wife.

    In 2003, a jury in Galveston, Tex., acquitted him of murder charges, despite his testimony explaining how he cut up the body of a neighbor, Morris Black, and threw the parts into Galveston Bay. The head is still missing.

    In an interview before his arrest, Mr. Durst said that he had no idea where the head is. “I just threw the garbage bags off the pier,” he said. “I could barely lift them. I expected them to sink.”

    Mr. Durst claimed that Mr. Black’s death was an accident that occurred while the two men grappled over a gun. Investigators in California, New York and Texas do not believe it was self-defense. Mr. Durst later pleaded guilty to charges of jumping bond and evidence tampering in connection with the case.

    Mr. Durst and his defense team, led by Mr. DeGuerin, appear to have miscalculated in New Orleans. The defense had argued that the search of Mr. Durst’s hotel room by two F.B.I. agents was illegal and that the evidence they turned up, in particular the revolver, should be thrown out.

    Federal prosecutors and investigators from Los Angeles disputed that account and countered that a second, independent search, conducted hours later by Los Angeles detectives, was unquestionably legal.

    Mr. Durst’s lawyers were so confident the federal judge in the case, Helen G. Berrigan, would throw out the evidence that they never formalized a proposed plea agreement that would have meant a sentence of up to 27 months, according to lawyers briefed on the negotiations who were not authorized to discuss them.

    Instead, Judge Berrigan sided with the prosecution in October, leaving the defense with little leverage in subsequent plea negotiations.

    “It’s more than I wanted,” Mr. DeGuerin acknowledged of the 85-month sentence. “It’s kind of the price of poker.”

    Under the plea agreement, Mr. DeGuerin said, prosecutors in New York also agreed not to prosecute a money laundering case they had been investigating against Mr. Durst. And the authorities in Houston agreed not to prosecute him over the circumstances of how he acquired the revolver.

    Mr. Durst’s lawyers say they have been eager to resolve matters in New Orleans so they can get to Los Angeles to answer what they say are spurious murder charges.

    “They’ve got a TV show and 15-year-old evidence that wasn’t good enough back then,” Mr. DeGuerin said in an interview last year, “and certainly isn’t good enough now.”

    The show was “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst,” which was broadcast on HBO in February and March of 2015. Mr. Durst cooperated in the making of the film, giving the producers more than 20 hours of interviews and turning over reams of court records, phone bills and credit card statements.

    Mr. Durst said he decided to cooperate with the documentary despite recommendations by his lawyers to stay away.

    “I am convinced that there’s no reason I shouldn’t say anything I want to anyone I want,” he said in an interview a year ago. “It’s so long ago. Some D.A. would have to commence a major budget-busting investigation. I don’t see that happening.”

    But John Lewin, a deputy district attorney in Los Angeles County who has a reputation as a skilled prosecutor of cold cases, found the information uncovered by the filmmakers compelling.

    At one point, the filmmakers confronted Mr. Durst with strong similarities between the handwriting on a letter he sent to Ms. Berman and on a note the police received after her killing, alerting them to the existence of a “cadaver.”

    The documentary concluded with Mr. Durst’s own words, uttered while he seemed unaware that his microphone was still recording: “What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course.”

    Mr. Lewin has repeatedly flown to New York to interview witnesses, including friends of Ms. Berman and Mr. Durst.

    He also interviewed Mr. Durst for 90 minutes in New Orleans, although the defense will almost certainly challenge the admissibility of that encounter given that his lawyers were not present.

    Lawyers are expecting battles over handwriting experts and Mr. Durst’s utterances during “The Jinx.” Mr. Lewin must also contend with memories that in some cases are 34 years old.

    Ms. Berman and Mr. Durst became fast friends after they met in Los Angeles in the late 1960s.

    “She was really smart and really interesting,” said Julie Smith, a mystery writer who was close to Ms. Berman. “You never knew what she would say or do. And she had a fascinating background.”

    The daughter of a Jewish gangster, Ms. Berman was a promising magazine writer living in New York in 1982 when Kathleen Durst disappeared. Her body was never found. During that investigation, Ms. Berman served as Mr. Durst’s shield against reporters.

    “He was like a brother to her,” said Kim Lankford, a friend of Ms. Berman. “She always spoke of Bobby adoringly.”

    But investigators also believe that Ms. Berman knew Mr. Durst’s secrets, which put her in jeopardy in October 2000, when he learned that the authorities had reopened the investigation into Ms. Durst’s disappearance.

    In “The Jinx,” Mr. Durst said Ms. Berman had called him shortly before her death to say the authorities wanted to interview her.

    Two months later, she was found dead in her Los Angeles home, shot in the back of the head.

    Although the police investigation looked at other suspects, it eventually focused on Mr. Durst, who was in California at the time of Ms. Berman’s death.

    Ms. Berman, who was in dire financial shape, was fiercely loyal to her friends, Ms. Smith said. Mr. Durst lent her $50,000.

    “She described Bobby as the greatest guy in the world and how sweet he was,” Ms. Smith said. “She was not going to rat him out.”

    Family wants Robert Durst’s missing ex declared dead

    More than 34 years after her disappearance, Kathleen Durst’s family wants to have her legally confirmed dead — killed by her oddball millionaire ex-husband Robert Durst.

    “It is now time for this court to judicially declare that Kathie died on Jan. 31, 1982 when she was murdered by her husband, Robert Durst,” her sister Carol Bamonte says in papers filed Thursday in Manhattan Surrogate’s Court.
    Modal Trigger

    Bamonte, her siblings and their 102-year-old mother, Ann McCormack, need the ruling to pursue a civil wrongful death case against Durst.

    In the filings, family attorney Robert Abrams argues that Kathleen should be declared dead partly because of Durst’s confession in the HBO documentary “The Jinx.”

    In the series finale, Durst was caught on a live mic muttering, “What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course.”

    Kathleen’s sisters submitted affidavits saying they are all convinced Durst killed her, suggesting that he disposed of the body the same way he got rid of a Texas neighbor he said he accidentally shot during a 2001 dispute — by dismembering his body and tossing it in Galveston Bay.

    “I cannot conceive of any circumstances that would tend to show that Kathie is still alive, and it is believed that Kathie was tragically murdered by Durst on Jan. 31, 1982,” says sister Mary Hughes.

    Another sister, Vigrinia McKeona, adds, “Kathie would not just wander off and completely cut off communication with her loved ones.”

    While Kathie’s family has “no doubt” that Durst killed her, “for the purposes of this proceeding the court need only make a finding that it is highly probable that Katie died on Jan. 31, 1982,” Abrams says in the filing.

    “There is a strong probability that Durst killed Kathie in their weekend home in South Salem, New York,” he says.

    The law requires a continuous, unexplained absence for three years and a “diligent search” in order for a missing person to be deemed dead.

    The family also believes the declaration would help California prosecutors in their homicide case against Durst for the 2000 murder of his friend Susan Berman, which is scheduled to go to trial this summer.

    Berman was shot in the head at her Beverly Hills home shortly after the Westchester County district attorney contacted her regarding a rekindled investigation into Kathie’s disappearance.

    “So convinced that Durst killed Berman to prevent her from testifying against him for the murder of Kathie, the State of California is seeking the death penalty against Durst,” Abrams says in court papers.

    Finally, the petition calls into question the validity of Durst’s marriage to New York City real estate broker Debrah Lee Charatan in December 2000. According to court papers, Durst obtained a “secret divorce” from Kathie in Westchester County Supreme Court in 1990.

    In sworn court papers, Durst claimed “Kathie voluntarily abandoned him.” He also allegedly lied about his residence at the time and where Kathie’s family lived in an effort to hide the divorce from her relatives.

    Kathie’s family says that Durst married Charatan out of convenience, so she could manage his money if he was arrested or became a fugitive.

    If their marriage was a sham, Charatan could be forced to testify against her husband instead of invoking spousal privilege.

    Abrams also reveals in the filing that a soon-to-be-unsealed deposition of Durst may contain details about his role in his wife’s death.

    Durst was grilled under oath in connection with a suit he filed against a private investigator named Tim D. Wilson. Durst accused his hired PI of betraying him, when Wilson signed a statement saying that Durst confided in him that he wanted to kill his brother Douglas, who runs the family’s real estate business.

    Douglas bought his black-sheep brother out of The Durst Organization, which runs properties such as 1 World Trade Center, for $65 million in 2006.

    Robert Durst heading to LA to face murder trial, first court appearance Monday

    New York real estate heir Robert Durst arrived in Los Angeles on Friday and will be arraigned next week on a murder charge in the 2000 slaying of his friend Susan Berman, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office said.

    The arrival of Durst, who is scheduled to appear at the Airport Courthouse Monday afternoon, marks the latest chapter in a legal saga that was reinvigorated last year when the New York aristocrat was featured in the HBO documentary series “The Jinx.”

    Durst, 73, had been due to be transferred to Southern California by Aug. 18 from a federal prison in Louisiana, where he had pleaded guilty to a weapons charge.

    “We have been ready for some time. I’m glad we’re going to start proceedings,” Durst’s attorney, Dick DeGuerin, told The Times on Friday. “He’s going to get his day in court.”

    DeGuerin said he expected a preliminary hearing in the case to take place in the spring and for the trial later in 2017. Durst was booking into the Los Angeles Police Department jail Friday at 1:20 p.m.
