CA v. Robert Durst Murder Trial Day 22 – Douglas Durst, Defendant’s Brother Continues Part 4

Law&Crime Network published this video item, entitled “CA v. Robert Durst Murder Trial Day 22 – Douglas Durst, Defendant’s Brother Continues Part 4” – below is their description.

LIVE TRIAL: CA v. Robert Durst Murder Trial – Murder of Friend Susan Berman

Witness:

DOUGLAS DURST- DEFENDANT’S BROTHER

Robert Durst stands trial for the 2000 murder of friend Susan Berman. The trial began just before the pandemic in early 2020 and was halted two weeks in. The restart happened May 17, 2021, with the same jury panel.

The defendant’s wife Kathleen McCormack Durst went missing in 1982. Evidence and testimony would show that Robert Durst killed her, the prosecutor said. The defendant allegedly told Berman it was an accident and asked her for help. She served as his alibi.

Berman, 55, was shot execution-style at her Beverly Hills home in 2000, and the prosecution suggested that it was because of what she knew about Kathleen’s death and disappearance. As defense lawyer Dick DeGuerin would have it, however, Durst is innocent. His client only came across the body, panicked, and fled, he maintained.

Durst only stands trial in Los Angeles County, California in Berman’s death, but two other cases stand in the backdrop: the 1982 disappearance of the defendant’s wife Kathleen McCormack Durst, and the 2002 fatal shooting and dismemberment of his Texas neighbor Morris Black. There have been no charges in the missing persons’ case, and defendant Durst previously beat a murder trial in the shooting of Black, claiming it was an accident and in self-defense.

#RobertDurst – Lewin: Susan Berman dated a man with two kids, when they broke up she was extremely close to them and the daughter even lived with her. Mella Kaufman will testify that Susan told her she had been the alibi after Durst’s wife disappeared.

Both sides of the case agree that the so-called cadaver letter places Durst at the scene of the Berman shooting. The defense maintains, however, that it was written in a panic after Durst found his friend shot and killed.

#RobertDurst – DeGuerin says Bob went to Susan’s as they had planned and he found her dead. He panicked. He sent the cadaver letter and ran. “That’s what Bob did. He ran.”
