He jinxed himself.
Robert Durst, from HBO's The Jinx, was locked up in New Orleans on Saturday night after an out of state warrant was issued for his arrest in Los Angeles County. The case is very odd.
Back in 2001, Durst was acquitted of a murder trial for his dismembered neighbor Morris Black, claiming self-defense. His wife Kathleen also went missing in 1982.
Well, a 2000 shooting of Robert's close friend Susan Berman has been reopened by the Los Angeles District Attorney. She was found at home, shot execution-style, and Durst was questioned at the time but never charged.
Berman was not only college friends with Durst but was also the real estate mogul's unofficial media spokesperson after his wife disappeared.
Durst's lawyer, Chip Lewis, explained that his client had been charged with murder and was not fighting extradition to LA.
Coincidentally, HBO's six-part docuseries on Durst, The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst, will air its finale tonight.
