UPDATE: TMZ has news in Durst Case.
So this is a story that hit the news this weekend when Robert Durst was arrested in New Orleans. I had not heard of this HBO series until that occurred but now I am in the process of binge watching the six episodes. I’m not sure if any of you are interested, but I thought I’d put up a post anyway.
I won’t have much to add until I’m finished watching the series. It will probably be late tonight or tomorrow before that happens. In the meantime, feel free to comment about the case here.
About the Series (From HBO site)
From Andrew Jarecki and Marc Smerling (the Oscar® nominees behind Capturing the Friedmans ), comes The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst, a six-part examination of the reclusive millionaire at the heart of three killings spanning four decades. Robert Durst, the scion of a New York real estate empire, has long been a suspect in the notorious 1982 disappearance of his wife, Kathie. Further suspicion was raised with the unsolved killing of his confidante, Susan Berman, thought to be a key witness in the investigation into Kathie’s disappearance in 2000, as well as the subsequent killing and dismemberment of a neighbor in Galveston, Texas. Durst has consistently maintained his innocence and remains a free man today.
Durst was arrested last Saturday, the night before the final episode of the series. The NYT has a lengthy piece on the subject. Here is an excerpt. I didn’t read the rest of it very carefully because I am binge watching the series as I type.
