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 demonstrates how our legal system can work to hold accountable people regardless of their wealth and status in life,” District Attorney George Gascón said. “I want to commend our prosecution team and investigators for their diligent work to ultimately bring justice for those who have been waiting more than 20 years.”
