Robert Durst was just found guilty for murder and will spend the rest of his life in prison. Now he is on a ventilator and battling COVID-19.

According to a report from TMZ, Durst’s attorney has told “several media outlets” that his client is currently on a ventilator, and he has been under this life-saving instrument for days now.

Durst reportedly contracted COVID-19, but there was not much of an update beyond that. He did say that Durst looked “terrible” on Thursday.

In all honesty, Durst shouldn’t look amazing, because he was just handed an incredibly stiff penalty. He will spend the rest of his life behind bars. Now he has contracted the dreaded virus and he is “the worst I’ve ever seen him,” according to his attorney.

Durst’s story was covered in the HBO docuseries ‘The Jinx.’ He rose to infamy after his confession to killing Kathy and Susan was caught on a hot mic while he was in the bathroom.

Durst is 78 years old, and his health was already not the best even before this COVID-19 situation. We will continue monitoring this situation here at Thirsty.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
