What did Become Murderer Robert Durst’s Cause of Death?

Robert Durst’s cause of death was reported as “natural causes, ” and he apparently had been suffering from numerous medical issues. Robert had been taken for testing. He then went into cardiac arrest and could not be revived.

His trial had been delayed for more than a year due to the Covid pandemic. Two days after his sentencing he was admitted to hospital with Covid and placed on a ventilator, according to his trial lawyer.

He was admitted to LAC+USC Medical Center and placed on a ventilator in October. He was tested positive for COVID-19; however, he suffered several health issues during his trial.

According to sources, his lawyers repeatedly argued he was too sick to stand for the proceedings in the first place; however, a judge disagreed, and Durst himself ended up giving hours of testimony, such as the remarkable admission that he would have lied if he had taken Berman’s life.

Berman was shot point-blank in the back of her head in her home in 2000. Berman had provided Durst a false alibi in the 1982 disappearance of his first wife Kathie as she was slated to admit to authorities.

Later on, with the word “cadaver,” he wrote an anonymous letter to police and Berman’s address on it. Although Kathie’s body has never been found, her case remains open.

Durst, whose family have owned a series of New York City skyscrapers, such as an investment in the World Trade Center – was investigated after a recording of him confessing was used in the 2015 HBO documentary series The Jinx.

“What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course,” he was recorded saying to himself in an apparent hot mic moment. Prosecutors say that he also murdered his neighbor, Morris Black while living as a fugitive in Texas nine months after killing Berman. Durst insisted to have shot him accidentally, before going on to dismember his body and dump the parts in Galveston Bay.

After a 45-day manhunt, he was arrested for shoplifting a chicken sandwich from a grocery store in Pennsylvania, only a few miles from where he attended university. He was found with thousands of dollars in cash in his rental car, as well as cannabis and Black’s driving license.

He claimed self-defense at his 2003 trial and was acquitted after claiming that he escaped because he thought his story would not be believed.
