The strange little man currently on trial for a 2000 murder in Los Angeles admits he has killed before. He is now charged with putting a 9mm bullet into the head of his longtime friend, Susan Berman, a woman who authorities believe knew his deepest, darkest secrets.
In 2001 in Texas, this man admitted he shot his aggressive next-door neighbor in the face. The jury believed his self-defense claim and acquitted him even though the dead man’s dismembered body parts, found floating in Galveston Bay, did not include the head, which would have either proved or disproved the killer’s story.
This same defendant is also suspected in the disappearance/murder of his first wife, Kathleen, in New York back in 1982. But since no body was found, no charges were ever filed. Oh, and homicide detectives in both Vermont and two locations in California believe he might have also been involved in the murders of three young women between 1971 and 1997.
Robert Durst, 76, connected to one of the largest real estate fortunes in America, is suspected by some to be America’s most wealthy serial killer.
