Robert Durst, the subject of the HBO series "The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst," has been arrested on a capital murder warrant issued by police in Los Angeles related to the death of his friend, Susan Berman, his attorney said today.

Durst, 71, was arrested by FBI agents Saturday afternoon at a New Orleans hotel, a day before the final episode of the HBO series airs, a law enforcement source briefed on the investigation told ABC News.

FBI agents believed Durst may have wanted to leave the country, as he registered under an alias at the hotel, paid with cash, and was found with fake documents, said the source.

New York real estate baron Durst arrested on murder warrant

Robert Durst, scion of one of New York's largest real estate empires, has been arrested in New Orleans on a murder warrant issued by Los Angeles County, the Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office said.

Durst, born in 1943, is known for life twists that led him to be questioned but not charged in the mysterious deaths of his first wife Kathleen Durst in 1982 and a longtime friend in 2000.

~Snipped~

The New York Times reported last week that the district attorney in Los Angeles had recently reopened an investigation into the December 2000 killing of Durst's friend Susan Berman, and was tying it to the case of Kathleen Durst, who went missing from New York and was eventually pronounced legally dead.

The investigation could be bolstered by new evidence shown for the first time in a six-part HBO documentary series about Durst called "The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst," the New York Times said.

Robert Durst Says on HBO 'What the Hell Did I Do? Killed Them All'

Mar 15, 2015, 5:00 PM ET

By EMILY SHAPIRO and AARON KATERSKY via GOOD MORNING AMERICA



World News Videos | US News Videos

Robert Durst, the subject of both an HBO series and law enforcement scrutiny, asked himself off-camera in the closing moments of the final episode of the documentary tonight, “What the hell did I do?” before answering, “Killed them all, of course.”

Filmmakers asked Durst about similarities in handwriting in a letter he wrote and another linked to one of the killings to which he has been linked, The Associated Press reported, before he wore his microphone into the bathroom.

That’s when he apparently said to himself, "There it is. You're caught" and "What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course."

Robert Durst of HBO's "The Jinx" arrested in New Orleans

~Snipped~

Durst, 71, has never been charged in connection with the unsolved 2000 murder of Berman in the Hollywood section of Los Angeles, who was killed as cold-case detectives prepared to question her in the 1982 disappearance of his wife, Kathie.

He was acquitted in the 2001 dismemberment death of his Galveston neighbor, Morris Black, because he said the killing was in self-defense.

~Snipped~

Defense lawyer Chip Lewis, who successfully defended Durst in the Black killing, said his client will waive extradition and be transported to Los Angeles to face the charges.

"He's maintained his innocence for years," Lewis said. "Nothing has changed."

He is being held with bond.

~Snipped~

Lewis, the attorney, said the arrest was orchestrated by Hollywood to come before the final episode.

"No doubt," he said. "It's all about Hollywood now." Lewis said he was familiar with the Berman killing and wasn't surprised by the arrest because of the number of emails and calls he got after last week's episode aired.

He said new evidence touted by producers, however, was something he was already familiar with.

"I know all about this case," Lewis said. "I have no doubt we will present a most compelling defense."

New York real estate scion Robert Durst held in L.A. writer's 2000 slaying (Video)

By Richard Winton and Joel Rubin

March 15, 2015, 7:35 PM

Suspicion has shadowed Robert Durst at every odd, bloody turn.

Three times people close to the eccentric – some have said mentally ill – New York real estate scion have vanished or been killed. He has played the role of suspect, person of interest or defendant, each time confounding authorities as they have tried and failed and tried again to build murder cases against him.

Now, once again, police think they have the goods on him.

~Snipped~

“As a result of investigative leads and additional evidence that has come to light in the past year, investigators have identified Robert Durst as the person responsible for Ms. Berman's death,” the LAPD said in a statement issued Sunday.

Durst, accompanied by two attorneys, appeared briefly Sunday before a judge in a New Orleans courtroom. The judge ordered him held without bail and set a hearing for Monday morning to address Durst’s extradition to Los Angeles.

Robert Durst Agrees to Extradition to Face Murder Change in Los Angeles

4 minutes ago

Robert Durst, the real estate heir linked to two killings and a disappearance, agreed on Monday to travel to Los Angeles to face a murder charge after he was captured in an HBO documentary mumbling to himself: "Killed them all, of course."

In a brief hearing in New Orleans, Durst agreed to extradition. He spoke only to answer the judge — "Yes, I signed that" — when he was asked whether it was his signature on the extradition waiver.

Before the hearing, he sat in a glass-walled box separate from other inmates and spoke through a window to his lawyer.

Arrested real estate heir Robert Durst to head to California to face murder charge (Video)

Published March 16, 2015 · FoxNews.com

Real estate heir Robert Durst will be heading back to California to face a first-degree murder charge after waiving extradition during a hearing Monday.

Durst, 71, appeared before a judge in New Orleans. He was arrested Saturday in New Orleans on murder charges the night before an HBO documentary broadcast audio of him muttering "What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course."

Durst was taken into custody by FBI agents at a J.W. Marriott hotel for the 2000 murder of Susan Berman in her Beverly Hills, Calif. home, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said.

Durst had been laying low in the hotel to avoid the growing attention at his Houston home, his lawyer said.

He shuffled into the courtroom with his hands shackled at his waist, wearing sandals and an orange jumpsuit. He appeared to fall asleep just before the hearing started and later answered "yes" to questions from the judge about whether he was waiving extradition

Police report: Durst had revolver on him when arrested

AP
By JANET MCCONNAUGHEY and BRIAN MELLEY, Associated Press
21 mins ago


Update: This is developing.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A police report says wealthy eccentric Robert Durst was in possession of a revolver when he was arrested at a New Orleans hotel on a murder charge in the death of his friend in Los Angeles.

Durst waived extradition Monday and is expected to be taken to Los Angeles to face the murder charge. His attorney says the extradition is being delayed because prosecutors in New Orleans are considering charges.

It's not clear what those charges are. The district attorney's office is not commenting.

Why Robert Durst’s “Killed Them All” Confession Won't Work in Court

By Polly Mosendz   3/16/15 at 5:19 PM

~Snipped~

“There it is. You’re caught. You’re right, of course. But, you can’t imagine. Arrest him. [water runs] I don’t know what’s in the house. Oh, I want this. What a disaster. He was right. I was wrong. And the burping. I’m having difficulty with the question. What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course.”


Sure, this may sound like a confession to the two murders and one disappearance (also a likely death) to which allegations have linked Durst. However, as a legal matter, these words may not stand in court due to the hearsay rule, which has already become a point of contention among legal experts. Alternatively, the defense could try to use the audio bite to its advantage, as evidence of its client’s insanity.

Durst’s lawyer, Chip Lewis, couldn’t be reached for comment, but during an appearance on Fox News Channel's Justice With Judge Jeanine he said: "You've said things under your breath that you probably didn't mean.”

Police searching Houston home of millionaire Robert Durst (Video)

AP
By JUAN A. LOZANO, Associated Press
1 hr ago


HOUSTON (AP) — Police on Tuesday were searching the Houston home of millionaire Robert Durst after his arrest over the weekend in New Orleans.

Durst, 71, is charged with murder in a Los Angeles killing 15 years ago, and has been suspected — but never charged — in the disappearance of his first wife in New York. In 2003, he was acquitted of murder in a dismemberment death in Texas.

On Tuesday afternoon, a marked Houston police car and three unmarked cars were in front of a 17-story building in Houston's Rice Village neighborhood where Durst has three condominiums. At least five plainclothes officers were working inside the guarded building. Two of the officers were seen walking to a nearby unmarked car, retrieving a small bag from the trunk and returning to the building.

".... He chopped up a man and dumped him in the bay-sans his head, and convinced a jury he did that in self defense.   This author is doubtful that had Durst not proposed the series of interviews that he would have been  charged in Berman’s murder at all.   Jarecki and HBO et al  deserves Ms. Pirro’s kudos if indeed Jarecki went into the project objectively and investigatively.

Before Durst faces that left coast criminal court machine, he must answer the instant charges against him in New Orleans for firearm and drug possession- both of which were located in his hotel room when he was arrested on the Los Angeles warrant.  As this article is scheduled to be published a source within the LAPD who is not authorized to comment on the case publicly, has confirmed to BlinkOnCrime  that their office is receiving a flurry of calls from other agencies handling missing persons cases of young women. ...."

From comment 1:
"....Thank you ATG. I have followed Durst’s case for years with great interest from my local ties- but more importantly- from a socio/psych perspective. When he was on the lamb in Galvaston parading as a mute women I knew he had some serious problems- and some serious psycopathy. As one of the investigators said in the series- he is not evil- he is diabolical. I believe that. ..."

No bond for millionaire Durst on New Orleans weapons charges

AP
By JANET McCONNAUGHEY, Associated Press
2 hrs ago


NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A magistrate has ordered that millionaire Robert Durst be held without bond on weapons charges in Louisiana.

Magistrate Harry Cantrell said that based on what he heard in Monday's bond hearing and on court documents, the 71-year-old Durst is both a flight risk and a danger to others.

Durst was seated beside his lawyers, his hands shackled to his sides in padded cuffs. He has been in a prison's mental health unit for nearly a week. Officials have called him a suicide risk.

Wacko real estate heir Robert Durst busted for trespassing on brother’s property

August 16, 2013 | 8:48pm

Nutjob New York real estate heir Robert Durst — the only suspect in his wife’s 1982 murder — was busted today for ignoring orders to keep away from his estranged brother, law enforcement sources said.

Durst, 70, who lives in a $1.75 million townhouse in Harlem, allegedly approached Douglas Durst’s place at 413 West 43rd St. at 8:30 a.m. on June 2 and menacingly glared into a surveillance camera, freaking out a worker inside.

...Prosecutors said during his arraignment tonight that Durst also stared into the security cameras of other relatives who live in neighboring homes, and a judge issued 13 orders of protection telling the Durst to stay away from his relations.

Vt. student shopped at Robert Durst’s store before vanishing

"...MIDDLEBURY, Vt. — It was December 1971, and Lynne Schulze was in her dorm room, looking for her favorite pen before a final exam. But the Middlebury College freshman never showed up for the 1 p.m. test.

At 2:15 p.m., she was spotted across the street from a local health food store, one she had visited earlier in the day. She was never seen again.

More than four decades later, police in this small college town are focusing their investigation into Schulze’s disappearance on the man who owned that modest store: multimillionaire murder suspect Robert Durst. ..."

Debrah Lee Charatan Speaks: Robert Durst’s Second Wife Explains Connection to Real Estate Firm

Author: The Trial Diaries March 27

Debrah Lee Charatan, the second wife of accused murderer and former real estate scion Robert Durst, talked with Newsweek through a spokesman on Thursday. Charatan, who appears in HBO’s The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst only in deposition footage, has stayed out of the public eye since her husband was arrested on March 14 for the 2000 execution-style murder of his longtime friend and spokeswoman Susan Berman.

Another old article, but informative.  Mentions possible ties to a missing 16-yr.-old in Eureka, CA:

Jury selection tomorrow in Scarsdale man's murder trial
By JONATHAN BANDLER  THE JOURNAL NEWS
(Original publication: August 25, 2003)


... Durst crisscrossed the country while skipping bail, and one of the places where he was reportedly seen was a campsite in the woods near Eureka, Calif. In the late 1990s, one of several properties Durst owned in northern California was in Trinidad, about 20 miles from Eureka. Police in Eureka consider Durst one of several "investigative leads" they are tracking in the Nov. 25, 1997, disappearance of Karen Marie Mitchell.

The 16-year-old girl was on her way to work at a day-care center that afternoon. A motorist believed to be the last person to see her told police that she was leaning into a light blue car that she might have gotten into, Eureka Detective David Parris said.

...Bradley, too, sees similarities between Durst and the sketch in the Mitchell case, but is even more intrigued by the description of the car. Although Durst had a green Ford Explorer in northern California at the time, a drug user and prostitute who reported Durst befriended her told authorities she only knew him to drive a light blue car, Bradley said.

After Durst's Acquittal, Fears of Revenge
By CHARLES V. BAGLI and TINA KELLEY
Published: November 13, 2003


...But the verdict did seem to fuel the fears of people who know him, including his brothers and the woman he was dating in 1982 when his first wife mysteriously vanished.

... According to people who know them, Mr. Durst's brothers remain concerned about Robert's intentions toward them. His brother Douglas, who runs the family's real estate empire, hired security guards to protect his Westchester home in November 2001, after Robert jumped bail in Galveston and became a fugitive. It did not help matters that while he was on the run he pulled into the driveway of Douglas Durst's estate with two loaded handguns in his car.

His youngest brother, Thomas, who lives in California, asked the local police for around-the-clock protection while his brother was the subject of a nationwide manhunt, according to one person who knows him. Thomas Durst was also on the witness list for the prosecution in Galveston, though he never testified.

Prudence Farrow, who had been dating Mr. Durst when his first wife disappeared, is also said to be nervous that Mr. Durst may come looking for her. She has told investigators he grew furious with her when she tried to break off their relationship, only days before she discovered that Kathleen Durst had vanished, according to a friend who also spoke with investigators. Ms. Farrow, the sister of the actress Mia Farrow, is the inspiration for the Beatles' song, ''Dear Prudence.''

Douglas Durst, in Rare Move, Speaks About Robert Durst Ahead of HBO Documentary
JAN. 1, 2015

...That tension is central to a largely untold narrative of one of modern New York’s most prominent real estate families, a story that echoes with sibling rivalry as old as humankind. With Robert about to tell his version in a new documentary, Douglas has spoken publicly for the first time, concerned that his brother, at age 71, is on the verge of opening up a new attack on the family.

They fought as boys, scuffling and punching through childhood. As young men, working in the offices where the family presided over billions of dollars in Manhattan real estate, Robert kept a sharp-pointed plumber’s wrench on his desk. Douglas responded by positioning a piece of pipe — “to protect myself,” he said — on his own desk.

...In recent years, Robert has twice appeared at Douglas’s home in Westchester County, once while carrying two guns, another time in a ski mask.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that if he had the opportunity to kill me, he would,” Douglas Durst said.

Robert Durst Appears in Court But None of His Lawyer's Witnesses Show Up

Apr 2, 2015, 10:36 PM ET


A shouting match erupted in court today during a hearing for Robert Durst and the various charges he faces relating to his arrest in New Orleans last month.

... Today's court appearance in New Orleans was slated as a preliminary hearing relating on whether or not Durst should be tried in Louisiana for the gun and drugs charges or if he will be extradited to California to face the murder charge.

Durst's defense team, who have repeatedly proclaimed that he is innocent of Berman's murder (though they have not yet had to enter a formal plea), had subpoenaed the FBI agents and state trooper related to his arrest, along with a former New York district attorney who had been involved with the investigation into his first wife's disappearance.

But none of those witnesses showed up -- leading state prosecutors to shout at Durst's defense attorney Dick DeGuerin.

That's when the judge decided to call for a postponement, pushing the hearing back to next Thursday, at which time the FBI agents and others subpoenaed could face contempt of court charges.

Robert Durst's attorneys ask judge to release him for extradition to California

Los Angeles Times
Molly Hennessy-Fiske
8 hrs ago


REPORTING FROM HOUSTON - Attorneys for embattled real estate millionaire Robert Durst have asked a judge to find that there was no probable cause for authorities to pursue charges in Louisiana and that they should now release him for extradition to California.

In court paperwork filed Friday, Durst's attorneys allege that Louisiana officials failed to establish probable cause to indict Durst at his preliminary hearing Thursday, presenting an arrest warrant but calling no witnesses in a "misguided attempt to conceal the facts from the court, the defendant, and the public."

At the hearing, Asst. Orleans Parish Dist. Atty. Mark Burton repeatedly challenged Durst's defense team to call witnesses themselves other than the three law enforcement officials who stopped and arrested their client. The trio - two FBI agents and a Louisiana state trooper - had been subpoenaed by the defense, but succeeded in delaying their appearance until next week.

What Robert Durst Said on DVD Commentary of Movie Based on His Life

Apr 3, 2015, 12:46 PM ET
By MEGHAN KENEALLY



World News Videos | US News Videos

Robert Durst’s involvement with the HBO documentary series “The Jinx” wasn’t the first time that the now-jailed real estate heir opened up about his connection to a pair of unsolved cases -- the disappearance of his first wife and the murder of his friend, for which he is now charged.

Durst spoke at length during a DVD audio commentary for the 2010 film, “All Good Things,” loosely based upon his life story -- and reacted as he apparently watched a fictionalized version of his life play out before his eyes.

Durst noted during the commentary for the DVD, which first came out in 2011, how some scenes, including disturbing ones showing fights he allegedly had with his wife, were remarkably “close” to how he said they happened in real life.

Durst now is being held in a Louisiana jail after being arrested for the murder of his friend, Susan Berman, and facing weapons and drug possession charges stemming from items found during his arrest. Durst and his lawyers have maintained his innocence in Berman's killing.

Real estate heir Durst indicted on Louisiana firearm charges

By JANET McCONNAUGHEY and KEVIN McGILL
Associated Press  April 8, 2015 Updated 51 minutes ago


NEW ORLEANS — Millionaire real estate heir Robert Durst was indicted Wednesday on the two weapons charges that have kept him in New Orleans even though his lawyers say he wants to go to Los Angeles as soon as possible to face a murder charge there.

A grand jury charged Durst with possession of a firearm by a felon, and possession of both a firearm and an illegal drug: 5 ounces of marijuana, said Assistant District Attorney Chris Bowman, spokesman for the district attorney.

Robert Durst pleads not guilty to federal gun charge in New Orleans
April 14, 2014  3:24 PM

Real estate heir Robert Durst pleaded not guilty to a federal gun charge Tuesday in New Orleans, leading one friend and employee to believe Durst will never be extradited to face a murder charge in California.

...His arraignment on the California arrest warrant was postponed Monday and transferred to the same court that will handle his next hearing on the state gun charges May 7. His federal trial date has been set for June 22.

...If convicted of the state charges now as a first-time offender, he could be sentenced to up to 10 and 20 years on each charge. If convicted of the federal charge of possessing a firearm as a convicted felon, Durst faces a possible 10-year prison term and $250,000 fine.

Robert Durst to Cops: I Want the $161,000 You Seized

First published April 16th 2015, 8:17 pm

Murder suspect Robert Durst — who is worth about $100 million, according to the FBI's estimate — is demanding that authorities return $161,000 seized after his arrest.

In court papers filed Thursday, lawyers for the subject of HBO's "The Jinx" said the cash "is not needed as evidence, is not contraband, and is not subject to forfeiture" and should be returned.

When FBI agents apprehended the real-estate scion at the J.W. Marriott hotel in New Orleans on March 14, they found stacks of hundred-dollar bills totaling more than $44,000. They also found a tracking number for a UPS parcel, which they intercepted; it contained another $117,000. Authorities say they believe Durst, 71, was amassing cash for a life on the run.

Robert Durst: Why Westchester's case is still unsolved

Jonathan Bandler, jbandler@lohud.com 8:52 a.m. EDT April 16, 2015

He's been acquitted of murder in Texas and now faces a murder charge in California and gun charges in Louisiana. But a resolution of the case for which multimillionaire real estate scion Robert Durst has been a suspect the longest — the Jan. 31, 1982, disappearance and presumed death of his first wife Kathie — has eluded law enforcement. What evidence do Westchester investigators have against the Scarsdale native and what are they lacking?

WHAT THEY DON'T HAVE

A Body: Not a deal breaker for a murder prosecution but close. There's inherent reasonable doubt — "What do you mean he killed her? Prove she's dead." Westchester prosecutors won a murder conviction against Werner Lippe in the 2008 death of his wife, who was believed to have been burned in an oil drum. But in Lippe's case, he confessed and prosecutors used some of his activities in the wake of her disappearance to corroborate the confession.

...WHAT THEY HAVE

Durst's Lies: Durst remains adamant about putting Kathie on the 9:17 Manhattan-bound train in Katonah on Jan. 31, 1982. But he has acknowledged lying to police about later speaking with her by phone. It was a key detail that, along with a dubious sighting of her later that night, kept New York City detectives from looking at the South Salem cottage.

"I don't know how he killed her but I don't think she ever got on the train, that's for sure," Edward Murphy, a senior investigator with the Westchester District Attorney's Office, said on the documentary.

Federal gun trial for Robert Durst delayed until September

Reuters  7 hours ago

NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - The trial of real estate scion and accused murderer Robert Durst on a federal weapons charge in New Orleans has been delayed until September after his lawyers requested more time to prepare his defense, court records show.

Durst's lawyers had sought his speedy extradition to Los Angeles County, where prosecutors want him in connection with the 2000 killing of a longtime friend, Susan Berman, in a case recently chronicled in the HBO documentary series "The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst."

But by asking for an extension in the weapons case, in which Durst has pleaded not guilty to a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm, Durst's lawyers appear to have conceded he will be in Louisiana for the foreseeable future.

Durst's Louisiana Gun Case Dropped; Federal Case Still There

NEW ORLEANS — Apr 23, 2015, 1:06 PM ET

Louisiana gun charges against real estate heir Robert Durst were dismissed Thursday, clearing the way for federal proceedings in New Orleans in a similar case.

Durst, a millionaire who also faces a murder charge in an unrelated California case, remains jailed without bond in Louisiana. Durst was arrested at a New Orleans hotel in March. Authorities said he had a gun and marijuana in his room.

..."It makes sense to try this case in federal court because FBI agents arrested Mr. Durst, and there shouldn't be two prosecutions, state and federal, at the same time for the same crime. We're looking forward to our day in court," DeGuerin said in an email.

Brother could freeze Robert Durst’s millions following legal deal

May 1, 2015 | 2:00am

Millionaire murder suspect Robert Durst may soon be scrounging for money.

The Post has learned his brother, real estate giant Douglas Durst, settled a lawsuit against filmmaker Andrew Jarecki, confirming that Robert was the source of leaked materials about the family for “The Jinx,” the HBO documentary that led to the accused killer’s recent arrest.

The deal, inked Thursday, means Douglas can move to freeze $74 million of his older sibling’s $100 million fortune.

A source told The Post during litigation seeking to determine Jarecki’s sources that if Douglas could prove Robert Durst leaked the information, “the next step is freezing his money.”

FBI believes Robert Durst is ‘romantically linked’ to New York woman

FBI alleges romantic link to person with funds
May 02, 2015

The FBI believes Robert Durst is “romantically linked” to a New York woman who sent him a package containing $117,000 shortly before his arrest in New Orleans in March.

...After the airing of the second-to-last episode of a recent HBO documentary miniseries about Durst — an episode that law enforcement authorities believe prompted his departure from Houston under an assumed identity — a Campbell Hall, New York, woman who is not his wife leapt into action to help him. But Susan Giordano, who has previously been described simply as a longtime friend of Durst, disputes the agency’s characterization of the pair’s relationship as romantic.

“We were just good friends. We still are,” she said Thursday. “I don’t know where they got that. We’ve been friends for decades. Like I said, we’re just really close friends.”

(This article discusses the HBO documentary The Jinx, including significant revelations and events that have occurred since the series aired. If you’ve somehow missed all of the national news coverage regarding its subject, Robert Durst, and don’t want this article to mess up your summer plans to finally getting around to watching The Jinx, consider yourself warned.)

...Jinx Director Andrew Jarecki and producer Marc Smerling recently spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the project, their potential role as witnesses in any future prosecution, and their assessment of Durst himself.

...“The man, in our view, is not just a random killer,” Jarecki said. “He’s a strategic killer and won’t put himself at risk unless he thinks there’s an upside.”

...Smerling and Jarecki confirmed that they will be called as witnesses,...

Robert Durst questions 'cadaver' note handwriting analysis

July 01, 2015 at 4:20 PM, updated July 01, 2015 at 4:50 PM

Lawyers for Robert Durst plan to challenge handwriting analysis that links the millionaire murder suspect to the so-called "cadaver" note that alerted police to the death of a friend of Durst in 2000, records in federal court in New Orleans indicate.

The two-line note, addressed to police in "Beverely Hills" and postmarked the day Susan Berman was shot dead in her home, has been trouble for Durst: the block-letter script looks like the scrawl Durst used in a note to Berman and other correspondence.

Robert Durst asks to delay trial on federal gun charges

By Andy Grimm, NOLA.com | Times-Picayune
on July 27, 2015 at 11:53 AM


Attorneys for Robert Durst have asked to delay his New Orleans trial on a federal gun charge by one to two months. Last week's motion comes as Durst's team is engaged in a multi-front battle to knock down key evidence in the case.

It stems from a search of Durst's hotel room in March. FBI agents found a loaded pistol in Durst's room at the JW Marriott hotel, but Durst's attorneys say the search was illegal. They say that as the Sept. 20 trial date nears, they are still awaiting rulings on whether evidence from the search will be allowed.

The King of Cold Cases Is Taking on The Jinx’s Robert Durst

John Lewin has built a career on prosecuting cold cases. As well known for his offbeat style as for his winning record, he’s readying for his biggest trial yet
September 21, 2015 Louise Farr


...The day before Durst’s toilet soliloquy aired, FBI agents arrested him in New Orleans on a Los Angeles warrant that accused him of Berman’s murder. When he goes on trial here—after fighting gun charges in Louisiana stemming from the loaded .38 caliber revolver found in his hotel room—Durst will face lead prosecutor John Lewin.

Other lawyers with the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office successfully prosecute cold cases. But since 2002, the year of Lewin’s first cold case victory, he has won 16 guilty verdicts or pleas. His losses are nil, a record that qualifies him as the winningest cold case attorney in the county.

James McCormack filed papers in Manhattan Surrogate’s Court on Thursday asking for authority over the estate of his sister, Kathleen Durst, who disappeared in 1982, so that he could sue Durst, who has been the only suspect in her death.

Fugitive real estate heir Robert Durst agrees to Los Angeles extradition
Published December 22, 2015

"...Court filings have shown that Durst has struck a plea deal with federal prosecutors on a weapons charge in New Orleans. The weapons charge has kept Durst jailed in Louisiana since March, even though he waived extradition on the murder charge in Los Angeles.

Durst, an estranged member of the family that runs 1 World Trade Center in New York, faces a first-degree murder trial in Los Angeles in the 2000 death of his friend and onetime spokeswoman Susan Berman, 55...."


"...Durst's lawyers say his arrest in New Orleans was timed to coincide with the conclusion of "The Jinx." Durst had registered at the hotel under the name Everette Ward and was lying low while HBO aired the final chapter of his life story...." roflao roflao roflao

Saw a TV show that showed his NY trial...
The prosecutor in that trial was (Judge) Jeanine Pirro!
She stated after the trial, she would be watching each legal action against him...
she wanted to be in the courtroom as the trials spun.

"...Real estate heir and murder suspect Robert Durst pleaded guilty to a federal gun charge in New Orleans on Wednesday, setting the stage for his return to California to face charges in the 2000 death of a longtime friend.

Durst, 72, could be sentenced to seven years and one month in prison under his plea agreement, followed by three years of supervised release. He was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm after a search of his New Orleans hotel room last March turned up a handgun.

Shackled and wearing an orange jumpsuit, Durst appeared frail and thin at a hearing before U.S. District Judge Kurt Engelhardt. He told the judge that he could not hear well and was taking many medications.

Engelhardt set an April 27 sentencing hearing, noting that he hoped to have Durst in California by mid-August. Prosecutors there want him in connection with the 2000 killing of writer Susan Berman. Durst's lawyer has said his client is eager to prove his innocence.

Durst's arrest in New Orleans came one day before the series finale of a 2015 HBO documentary entitled, "The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst."..."

Robert Durst's wife's sister asks judge to declare her dead

New York Daily News
BARBARA ROSS
2 hrs ago

Kathleen Durst's family on Thursday asked a judge to declare her legally dead, 34 years after she disappeared while married to real estate heir — and alleged killer — Robert Durst.

Kathleen Durst's sister, Carol Bamonte, asked the Manhattan Surrogate’s Court to fix the date of her death at January 31, 1982, when she disappeared just a few weeks shy of graduating from medical school.

Durst's other two sisters, Mary Hughes of Manhattan and Virginia McKeon of Hampden, Mass., said the family is more convinced than ever that their brother-in-law killed his wife at the couple's weekend retreat in South Salem and disposed of the body.
