    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.
