The Jury in the Durst Trial began deliberations today a noon PT/ 3 ET. I think this was probably the most ridiculously drawn out trial I have ever seen. I would not be shocked if we get a verdict today. However, there is always a lot of ridiculous paperwork to get through, so tomorrow is a more likely guess. But, I really don’t see like anyone thinking he is not guilty. Stay tuned…
UPDATED! THE VERDICT IS IN!
Robert Durst, the millionaire subject of a documentary probing three killings, was convicted in the execution-style murder of a close friend.

The verdict was the latest act in a case that spanned almost four decades. It began with the mysterious disappearance of Mr. Durst’s first wife, Kathie, in 1982 and concluded with his conviction for the 2000 killing of Susan Berman, a friend who prosecutors said helped him cover up his wife’s disappearance and death.
Apparently, Durst was not in court for the verdict because one of his drivers tested positive for Covid and therefore he is in isolation. The attorneys argued for a bit whether the verdict should be postponed until Durst was able to attend the verdict. But the verdict was announced anyway.
