Robert Durst Charged with First-Degree Murder Following 'The Jinx' Doc
By ETonline Staff
Just days following the season finale of The Jinx, HBO’s six-part documentary about Robert Durst, the real estate heir has been charged with first-degree murder in California’s investigation into his longtime friend Susan Berman’s death.
The charge comes after Durst was arrested by the FBI in New Orleans over the weekend. The news of his arrest caused a stir ahead of HBO’s finale, which aired shocking audio of the 71-year-old talking to himself.
“What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course," Durst said in audio captured off camera while in a restroom.
The HBO doc hasn’t aired without controversy with legal officials taking both sides of the case. While the exact details of what director Andrew Jarecki shared with police and when is still unclear, many suspect that The Jinx ultimately led to Durst’s arrest after thirty years of being suspected in his wife Kathleen's disappearance.
