The new process against the millionaire Durst: the nails, the last episode of a tv series
The film of the life of Robert “Bob” Durst starts again from the end. In the courtroom of Los Angeles, where on Wednesday began the trial against the american millionaire charged with the murder of her best friend, the jurors found themselves facing the last scene of The Jinx, the tv series on the history of Durst, who a few years ago revealed previously unpublished details about a series of murders linked in some way to the entrepreneur, with great success of public and critics.

The series ended with the confession involuntary, Durst - who was arrested the night before the airing of the last episode - oblivious to still have the microphone turned on: “what the hell have I done? I have slain them all.” The clip is over before the jury that will decide if, in 2000, Durst has really killed his friend, Susan Berman, sparandole a gunshot to the head in his apartment in Los Angeles, for her to say what he knew of Khatleen, the wife of Durst, disappeared without a trace in 1982. The entrepreneur has always declared himself innocent of the murder of Susan, but that confession has done really in the last episode of The Jinx. Or not?

Here things get complicated, because the one in the video is really the voice of the Durst, but the phrases - it is discovered in 2019 - they were assembled in succession ex-post, while they were part of a confusing array of claims that the millionaire had made in the bathroom of his house, and in a state of mind which has not arisen then just optimal. Dick DeGuerin, the defense attorney, has complained: “to Show these videos is improper, what is on the screen is invented”, but deputy district attorney John Lewin, goes, by leaking the idea that it would show other clips of The Jinx: “You present what you want, I'll bring my trials.” The public will watch with the same voracity with which in 2015 has made the series created, written and directed by Andrew Jarecki, a successful product, is also able to re-open investigations and processes.

the Son of Seymour Durst, a famous real american contribution to the construction of New York as we know it, seven years Bob assisted in the suicide of his mother, and shortly after he was removed from the family. In 1973 he married Khatleen McCormack, disappeared in 1982, his body has never been found. The man was accused of being the author of the murder, but it was more than rumors and suspect evidence, and in fact, the accusation is filed.

In 2000, the death of Berman, who knew very well the family Durst, and the following year, that of Morris Black, a neighbor of Susan's, made in the pieces and closed in a lot. During the trial for the murder of Black, Durst admitted to have struck him, but said he did so for legitimate defence, and was acquitted. Now the judges will have to make clarity on the death of Berman, and it will take several months. In the middle there is The Jinx, the opera in six acts that tells the life of the entrepreneur, and that is likely to turn in the test and the most damning against him.
