Robert Durst Finally Arrested for Friend's Murder

Kathie Durst (missing) Susan Berman (murdered) Morris Black (murdered)

Real estate millionaire, Robert Durst, the subject of HBO docuseries "The Jinx," has been arrested for murder. To encapsulate:
His first wife, Kathleen Durst, disappeared in New York on January 31, 1982 and is presumed dead.

Susan Berman, Robert's long-time friend, supposedly knew something about Kathie's disappearance. Susan was found murdered on December 24, 2000 with a single gunshot wound to the back of the head at her house in California. Durst was suspected of her murder, but no one was ever charged.

In the fall of 2001, Durst's neighbor and "best friend" Morris Black, was found murdered and dismembered. Robert Durst was tried and acquitted for the murder using a self defense argument. At the time of acquittal, the head was still missing.

A 1999 letter from Robert Durst to Susan Berman was recently found by Susan's stepson and was turned over to authorities. It appears to have the same handwriting as a December 23, 2000 anonymous note sent to the Beverly Hills Police stating the location of a "cadaver" (Susan Berman's body).

Robert Durst has been known to shoplift minor items with $500 in his pocket, urinate on a candy display, and live for some time as a deaf-mute woman.
The last episode of "The Jinx" airs tonight on HBO. In my opinion, Robert Durst is a real wacko.

He isn't "wacko". First, when he did something wrong, he knew it, or he wouldn't have hidden it. Second, to his mind, what he does wrong is done for logical reasons. Whether his ability to see the value of life and compare that to his wants is, if the charges are true, don't really offer license. I think psychiatry just want subjects to legally play with, sociopaths themselves quite often. Calling people who do bad things insane is saying they aren't guilty, or capable of guilt. I don't offer such a defense for most, regardless of law or psychiatry, the "news", or public opinion.

I suppose there are some out there who don't know the difference, or can't know right from wrong, but few. And, oddly, those people don't seem to be the worst of the lot in any case. It's the one's who do know who seem to become addicted to evil, harm, murder. The others just bumble into it, from time to time, incidentally. Well... that's my opinion.

Started hearing it earlier today.
For the next week the media will run it in the ground.
