Convicted Murderer Robert Durst Dies At 78!!

Robert Durst, convicted murderer and star of the HBO documentary The Jinx  died on Monday.

 Durst died at the San Joaquin General Hospital in French Camp after going into cardiac arrest.

In September he was found guilty of murdering Susan Berman, his former best friend.

Durst's first wife, Kathie disappeared in 1982 and people thought that Berman helped him cover up his wife's disappearance and death. But when prosecutors reached out to speak with Berman about Kathie's death years later -- Durst flew to Los Angeles and murdered her.

He then left a note for police, giving them Berman's address and the word "cadaver," written in his handwriting.

In the documentary, "The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst," he seems to admit that he was caught by filmmakers towards the end.

Nick Chavin, a friend of Durst's testified that Durst admitted the crime to him, telling him, "It was her or me. I had no choice."
