Robert Durst and the Death of Susan Berman Real estate heir and suspected murderer Robert Durst agreed to waive extradition to Los Angeles today after being arrested in New Orleans over the weekend for the murder of Susan Berman 15 years ago. The arrest came after a shocking turn on Sunday’s finale to the HBO six-part documentary series The Jinx, which featured Durst’s first-ever interviews. In last night’s episode, Jinx director Andrew Jarecki confronted Durst with a piece of incriminating new evidence that appears to link Durst to the murder of Susan Berman in Los Angeles 15 years ago. Then, Durst went to use the bathroom, not realizing his microphone was still on, and muttered to himself what sounded like a confession. We revisit Berman’s death with a writer who researched it extensively.
