“I was on meth, I was on meth the whole time,” said Durst, 72, according to a transcript obtained by the Times. “And, when I looked at the little pieces of it… it should have been obvious.”
The New York real estate heir made the confession during a three-hour interview to prosecutors after his arrest on March 14, 2015, when a .38-caliber revolver was found in his New Orleans, Louisiana, hotel. On Friday, a transcript of the interview from a New Orleans jail was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, during which he acknowledged that "I was swooped, speeding."
According to the Times, Durst also told prosecutors that he refused a sit-down with TV journalist Connie Chung because he thought her interview with Mike Tyson put him in a positive light when it shouldn't have. “I never felt like that,” Durst said. “I never felt that I was really a good guy.”
Durst also called himself "the worst fugitive the world has ever met."
HBO's The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst investigated the 2000 killing of Durst's friend, Susan Berman, and the disappearance of his first wife, Kathie Durst, in 1982. Durst pleaded not guilty in November. During The Jinx finale last year, Durst was heard saying to himself in a bathroom, "What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course."
