Robert Durst, a millionaire and heir to the U.S. real estate industry, was convicted this Friday (September 17) of murdering his friend Susan Berman in 2000.
The Los Angeles jury soon found him guilty, and Berman was prepared to testify at the inquest into the disappearance of millionaire’s first wife, Kathleen McCormack – who went missing in 1982 and is presumed dead, but his case is still being investigated.
The McCormack couple went missing after spending the weekend at their upstate New York home. According to the confession, it took several days to inform the police and the woman’s family about Turst’s disappearance.
Susan Berman was 55 when she died and was shot in the head at her home in Beverly Hills.
At the trial that led to Turstin’s conviction for murder, prosecutors called him a “narcissistic psychopath.” He has been in prison since 2015, is 78 years old and is expected to spend the rest of his life in prison.
The allegations against the millionaire are well known in the HBO documentary Jinx His explosive speech aired just hours after his arrest in 2015.
According to the show’s producers, Durst went to the bathroom after the interview without remembering that he was using a wireless microphone.
“You are, you are caught,” he whispered to himself. “What the hell did I do? Of course I killed them all.”
At the time, Durstin’s lawyer said he was scheduled to be arrested in connection with the end of the HBO documentary.
In 2001, Thurst was tried on suspicion of throwing body parts into a bay and killing neighbor Morris Black, but was acquitted by a jury after arguing for self-defense.
The Turst organization owns 11 skyscrapers in Manhattan, New York, including a World Trade Center. Robert Thurst formally severed ties with his family and business in 2006.
