The Jinx murderer Robert Durst dies

Real estate heir who was the subject of documentary series dies in US state prison.

Robert Durst, the wealthy US real estate heir who was the subject of documentary series The Jinx, has died.

He died in a state prison hospital facility from natural causes, due to a number of health issues.

The 78-year-old was convicted in September of shooting Susan Berman at point-blank range in 2000 at her Los Angeles home.

He gained notoriety after the unsolved 1982 disappearance of his wife, Kathleen McCormack; the 2000 murder of his long-time friend Susan Berman, for which he was convicted in September 2021 (two days later, he was hospitalised with COVID-19); and the 2001 killing of his neighbour Morris Black, in Galveston, Texas, for which he was acquitted in 2003.

At the time of his death, Durst was awaiting trial on a fresh charge, for the murder of his wife Kathie McCormack Durst, 39 years after her disappearance.

Six-part HBO documentary The Jinx won critical acclaim for its insight and a rambling, off-camera admission.
