Robert Durst has been found guilty of first degree murder

Notoriously the subject of HBO 's "The Jinx" Robert Durst will die behind bars. This week a Los Angeles jury reportedly found Durst guilty in the murder of Susan Berman his former best friend some 20 years ago. Prosecutors successfully managed to argue that Durst was unhinged and did such without much remorse. Berman disappeared and was later found dead at her Beverly Hills home the day she was due to speak to police about the prior disappearance of Kathleen McCormack Durst. McCormack Durst is the first wife of Robert, though, disappeared way back in 1982 and was never seen again. Under CA law, Durst can be sentenced due to the way he committed the crimes. Lying in wait; a firearm, and the fact that he killed the witness to a major crime at the time. "The jury's decision...

As a result of that claim, Minaj ended up on television shows across the spectrum widely criticised for spreading what is very much obvious misinformation.

The fall of legal scion Alex Murdaugh is nothing short of shocking

As it turns out there are more holes in the story of Murdaugh 's family drama than initially realised. In the beginning, it was thought that the attempted shooting on his life was in fact by a stranger. But cops in the area and prosecutors now say that Murdaugh 's fall from grace has in other words become deeply more sinister than anyone had noticed. Prosecutors allege that Murdaugh allegedly hired his own hitman to shoot him nearly in the head earlier this month resulting in an even deeper mystery into an already troubled family.

In a further twist, cops say that Murdaugh hired his former c...

Pot rules that got Sha’Carri Richardson booted from the Olympics to be examined

The antiquated folks who run the Olympics have announced that they intend to apparently review the same rules that should have been abolished long ago. USA TODAY reports that WADA (World Anti Doping Agency) has announced that an examining body next year will take a deep dive into the rules surrounding marijuana and determine if they should finally be abolished. Weed is legal in several parts of America including at least 36 states including DC. In their announcement, WADA didn't directly mention Richardson 's case but we'd imagine there are probably other pot friendly sports stars that are thrilled about the news.
