Robert Durst Dies of COVID-19 Months After Life Sentence New York real estate heir and convicted murderer Robert Durst has died at the age of 78 just months after being sent to prison for the rest of his life-an abrupt end for a man who spent the better part of his life steeped in controversy and intrigue.
Robert Durst has ties to Galveston. Committed murder of a neighbor there.
Robert Alan Durst (April 12, 1943-January 10, 2022) was an American convicted murderer, suspected serial killer, and real-estate heir. He was the son of New York City real-estate magnate Seymour Durst and the elder brother of Douglas Durst, head of the Durst Organization. Robert Durst gained notoriety after the unsolved 1982 disappearance of his wife, Kathleen McCormack Durst; the 2000 murder of his long-time friend Susan Berman, for which he was convicted in September 2021; and the 2001 killing of his neighbor Morris Black, in Galveston, Texas, for which he was acquitted in 2003, although he was convicted of tampering with evidence for dismembering Black and dumping his body parts in Galveston Bay. Durst died while in the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation's California Health Care Facility. Credits to Wikipedia. I do recall the grizzly murder story that happened in Galveston. So disturbing.
Let's not forget him being arrested in Rice Village for urinating on the candy display in the CVS (I missed it by about 20 mins), and again after the Galveston murder for shoplifting a sandwich. Wearing a wire during a show interview, and confessing his crime while muttering to himself in the bathroom. His family used their money and influence to allow him to wreck some horrible pain in this world.
