SOUTH SALEM, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Robert Durst was never arrested or charged in the disappearance of his wife, Kathleen Durst, more than 30 years ago.
But as CBS2’s Matt Kozar reported, investigators have long considered Durst a suspect in the case.
Durst, 71, was in New Orleans Monday awaiting extradition to Los Angeles. He was set to face a murder charge there in the shooting nearly 15 years ago of Susan Berman, a mobster’s daughter who vouched for him after his wife disappeared.
If convicted, he could face the death penalty, Los Angeles authorities said.
