Robert Durst’s time for trial has finally come. However, it is unsure whether he will be alive to see the verdict or not. Durst’s wife, Kathie Durst, disappeared in 1982, and she was never to be found. While Durst at the time seemed to have nothing to do with it, eventually many things came out.
The documentary “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst” shows the accusations, struggles and career of the real-estate guru. As the trial comes with possibilities of a huge sentence, Durst’s condition is already very bad.
Durst was tried for the murder of Susan Berman. While an L.A. judge convicted of the murder, the jury announced that he would get prison for life. However, he ended up contracting COVID-19, and now stands between life and death. The 78-year old is on the ventilator, fighting for his very life.
In an interview for ‘The Jinx’ Durst apparently confessed to the murders during an open mic. He said “What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course.”
Given his condition, he might not be able to make trial in New York. However, his conviction and the prior sentencing finally brings his victims to justice. Durst, in the end, did not get away with the murder he did commit, and if the trial happens, justice will prevail.
