It’s times like these when I was that Big Lots sold holy water wipes, because everyone’s screen needs to be cleansed after being touched by that dark-sided picture of that unholy shark demon!
Robert Durst, the creepy ass real estate heir and subject of HBO’s highly addictive and riveting-as-fuck documentary series The Jinx (which sadly isn’t about the life and times of Jinkx Monsoon), was put into handcuffs at his hotel in New Orleans late last night after Los Angeles County issued a warrant for his arrest. Robert Durst checked into the hotel under a false name using a fake ID. He paid with cash. He is being held without bail and will be shipped off to L.A. to face first-degree murder charges. Robert Durst’s attorney Chip Lewis tells The Washington Post that he has been charged with murder and he won’t fight extradition to California. His creepy face will show itself at an extradition hearing in New Orleans tomorrow morning.
The L.A. Times reports that sources tell them that the worst Durst (which is saying a lot, because we’re living in a world where Fred Durst exists) was arrested in connection with the murder of his friend Susan Berman. The murder of Susan Berman, who was the daughter of an old-timey mobster, was covered in The Jinx. On Christmas Eve 2000, police found Susan’s body in her house in L.A. She had been shot in the head once. Many believe that Robert Durst killed Susan Berman because she knew a lot of shit about his wife’s disappearance. He has always denied killing Susan.
Detectives in New York were trying to talk to Susan about Robert’s wife’s death at around the time she was murdered. Robert’s wife, Kathleen Durst, went missing in 1982 after telling friends she was planning to divorce him. Kathleen’s body has never been found, the case is still open and Robert has always been the main suspect. That whole case was the subject of the movie All Good Things, which starred Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst, and was directed by Andrew Jarecki who also produced and directed The Jinx.
In 2003, Robert was tried for the murder of his elderly neighbor, Morris Black, in Galveston, TX. Robert Durst was hiding out in Galveston and disguised himself as a mute woman so no one would recognize him. He admitted to killing and chopping up Morris Black before dumping the man’s body parts (sans head) in Galveston Bay. Robert Durst played the self defense card and a jury found him not guilty, because this world is a crazy, fucked-up place.
Back to Susan Berman’s murder, a police source tells the Times that The Jinx provided new information about her death and it’s helping their case against Robert Durst. One of the new pieces of evidence is the fact that bitch doesn’t know how to spell “Beverly” in “Beverly Hills.”
Beverly Hills police received an anonymous letter postmarked Dec. 23, 2000, the day it is believed Berman was killed, alerting them to the presence of a “cadaver” at her home. The address on the envelope was written in distinctive block letters and included the misspelled word “Beverley.”
In the episode of “The Jinx” that aired March 8, Berman’s stepson Sareb Kaufman finds a letter written from Durst to Berman in March 1999 among her belongings. Clearly troubled, he shares it with “Jinx” producer Marc Smerling, who notes in a phone call to director Andrew Jarecki that it is “exactly like the cadaver note, down to the misspelling of Beverly.”
So, a rich kid and heir to a billion dollar empire can’t spell “Beverly.” The dumb fuck would’ve known how to spell “Beverly” if he regularly watched Beverly Hills Teens and Beverly Hills 90210. Uneducated shit.
Chip Lewis says that they have known about the arrest warrant for about a week. Chip Lewis thinks the producers of The Jinx and prosecutors timed his arrest for the finale of the documentary series, which is tonight. Yes, it was probably timed and many things in this world are a staged PR stunt, but in this case it’s okay.
If Robert Durst stands trial for the murder of Susan Berman, which he probably won’t since he gets away with EVERYTHING, I can’t wait to see the spawn of the Poltergeist preacher and a diabolical shark lie blink on the stand.
I’m surprised that he and his lawyer haven’t yet said that he can’t really be held accountable for all of his actions since Maryann Forrester from True Blood put him under her black magic spell and is controlling him. The proof is in those dead, Maenad eyes.
And since you definitely need a palate cleanser after looking at Robert Durst’s soul-sucking shark eyes, here’s gorgeous pictures from last month of Harald Gloockler at the Vienna Opera Ball. Harald is pretty much the glitter-embedded human version of a holy water wipe.
