He killed his best friend in 1982 to prevent him from revealing what had happened to his wife who went missing without a trace.
American billionaire Robert Thurst became famous after he was sentenced to life imprisonment for killing his best friend after a documentary about his life on HBO. The 78-year-old died at a prison hospital in Stockton, California, his lawyer announced.
Robert Thurst was sentenced to life in prison on October 14 for the heinous murder of Susan Berman. Two days later, he was confirmed to have Govt-19. According to the lawyer, his client had several health issues.
The heir to a New York family enriched by real estate deals, he has been at the crossroads of justice for more than three decades because he was considered a suspect in yet-to-be-solved crimes and includes those close to his relatives.
Susanna Berman has died of a gunshot wound to the head at her Beverly Hills mansion after being questioned by police about the disappearance of Robert Durst’s first wife, Kathleen McCormack. Kathleen went missing without a trace in 1982, after she expressed her desire to divorce her husband, in a case that still needs to be clarified. According to the lawsuit, Robert Durst killed his best friend to prevent him from reporting to the NYPD.
In November he was convicted of the second murder of a missing woman.
The millionaire, who pleaded not guilty, was arrested in March 2015 after HBO aired the last six episodes of a documentary about his life, entitled “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst.” .
The documentary contains statements by Robert Durst, who, while talking to himself in the bathroom, admitted to killing three people through a wireless microphone recording: “What did I do? I killed them all, of course.” Killing a neighbor, the millionaire would have dismembered the body and thrown it into the sea, in an attempt to make the body disappear.
