Robert Durst entered the public’s eye several years ago when he was featured in HBO’s documentary The Jinx.
The documentary focused on the possibility that Durst was responsible for the murder of his first wife, Kathleen and for the murder of Susan Berman, a confidante of Durst, who allegedly knew the details of Kathleen’s killing. Durst is currently under arrest in California for the murder of Berman.
In a recently filed lawsuit, it is claimed that Durst’s second wife, Debrah Charatan knows the details of the death of Durst’s first wife.
“Charatan, a cold-blooded opportunist, conspired and agreed to help Durst conceal,” the killings of his former wife and confidante Susan Berman, the lawsuit says according to an article in CrimeFeed.
According to the suit, Charatan married Durst in 2000 so that their communications would be legally protected. Then, once Durst had fled New York while the investigation into Kathleen’s disappearance heated up, she allegedly sent him money — and took millions herself. Charatan is in charge of all of Durst’s financial affairs and is the beneficiary of his will.
Durst’s lawyer, Dick DeGuerin declined to comment on the lawsuit.
