Robert Durst

Robert Alan Durst born on in 1943 is an American American inheritor. Robert Durst is son of Seymour Durst, and older brother of Douglas Durst, Robert is one of the most wealthiest men in America. Robert Durst has been investigated for the disappearance of his wife Kathie Durst in New York in 1982,

murder of Susan Berman in 2000 and Morris Black in 2001. He is suspected to be connected to other disappearance

of three teenagers. 

Kathie Durst

 Kathie was last seen by another person than Robert was in the evening of January 31, 1982, at her friend's house. She was said to reserve a call from her husband before leaving to go to New York by train. Robert and Kathie fought and argued a lot, she had been treated at a hospital for bruises three weeks before her disappearance. She had told her friend that Robert had been beating her up. Katie was in a unhappy relationship and wanted a divorce , when Robert heard that she wanted a divorce he cancelled  her credit card, removed her name from the joint bank account and refused to pay for her medical school tuition. One of Robert attorneys said when Robert was told to say what happened that 

 night he kept on changing the story and where he was that night.

Susan Berman 

On Christmas Eve, 2000 Durst’s best friend, Susan Berman was found murdered in her house, in Los Angeles, California. Susan Berman who has been Robert’s public alibi after the disappearance

of his wife. Before her death she had recently received 50,000 from Robert. 

The murder of Susan Berman

After the murder of Susan Berman a envelope was sent to the L.A police saying that there was a cadaver (dead body) in 1527 Benedict Canyon.The address on the letter spelled out  ‘Beverely Hills police’, and Beverly was spilt wrong. The police found it odd how the person who wrote this used the word cadaver, because nobody used that word to say a dead body. The only people who used this word were Robert Durst and his wife Kathie Durst. In the investigation of the murder the police thought that a mob killed her, but when they looked at the door to see if it had any sign of a  broken entrance,  the door was perfectly normal, suggesting that the killer was let in by  Susan Berman. During the investigation of this murder, the police found an envelope from Robert Durst which had the 50,000 dollars that were sent to Susan . The address said ‘1527 benedict Canyon, ‘Beverely Hills’, with Beverly  spilt wrong again. 

Morris Black 

After the murder of Susan Berman, he moved to Texas in 2000 and began posing as mute woman to avoid police involvement. When Robert Durst was living in Texas he became friends with his neighbour Morris Black. As they got to know eachother better Robert Durst told Morris black his true identity, that he was not a woman but a man, but never told him that he was a murderer . 

The murder of Morris Black

Morris Black’s body was dismembered and placed in bin bags. The next day body parts of Morris Black was found floating in Galveston Bay. After they found out where Morris Black lived they saw some blood leading up to Robert Durst’s apartment, they found some marks of a baw saw on the floor. When in the appartement a note was found from the optician but in Robert Durst name. The police went to the optician and told them if they saw him again they should call the police. The police found out that the optician was actually Robert Durst, they caught him and put him into jail he was then bailed out but missed a court hearing and was caught shoplifting even though he had $500 cash in his wallet. He then got away with the murder because he said it was ‘self-defence’ but was only charged for dismembering him.
