“We’re going to go after everybody,” McCormack family attorney Bob Abrams said Tuesday. “Who got paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to participate in this cover-up.”

“My family and I have serious questions, and we deserve answers,” said Kathie Durst’s brother, James McCormack.

The indictment came just weeks after Durst was sentenced to life in prison for killing his best friend, Susan Berman, in 2000.
