Real estate tycoon Robert Durst, convicted of murder, dies

Real estate tycoon Robert Durst, who was serving a life sentence for murdering a friend in 2000, has died at age 78, the New York Times reported on Monday (January 10).

Durst was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in October for murdering his best friend Susan Berman in 2000, in a long-delayed punishment for a man who mostly evaded the law over 39 years.

Durst, a multimillionaire whose grandfather founded one of New York City’s premier real estate companies, was long a suspect but never charged in the disappearance of his wife Kathleen McCormack, who went missing in New York in 1982.
