The Deviant Mr Durst

“Nervous” Robert Durst’s latest murder trial moves into second week after President Biden’s wife’s first husband reveals he had an affair with the deviant billionaire’s to-this-day still missing first wife

Last month a “former college football player” turned college bar operator named Bill Stevenson claimed that he slept with Kathie Durst, the missing since January 1982 then wife of the beyond bonkers billionaire Robert Durst, ten days before she vanished into thin air from South Salem, New York. At the time, Stevenson was married to 46th President of the United States Joe Biden’s now wife, Jill.


78-year-old Mr Durst – currently on trial for the murder of the mobster’s daughter Susan Berman in Los Angeles, California in December 2000 and previously acquitted of the murder of his neighbour, Morris Black, in Galveston, Texas in October 2001 in spite of admitting dismembering his body – returns to court today. Last week, this deranged deviant bizarrely admitting to disguising himself in a wig to hide from the “die-hard Trump supporter and Fox News personality,” Westchester County, New York District Attorney Jeanine Pirro in October 2000.


According to the Daily Beast, Durst – whose beyond odd personality was exposed when he tellingly declared: “What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course” in the 2015 six-part HBO series The Jinx – “panicked and flew to Dallas” to hide from Pirro after she announced she was reopening the cold case of his first wife’s disappearance. At the time, Pirro announced: “I have no reason to believe that she isn’t dead and that this wasn’t a homicide.”


Elsewhere late last week, Fox News highlighted Robert Durst shared that he had smoked “lots of marijuana” as well as taken cocaine and methamphetamine before his first wife’s disappearance and claimed he had had a “traumatised childhood” after “witnessing his mother either fall or jump to her death.” KTLA 5, meanwhile, shared footage where he declared: “Talking to the jury makes me nervous.”


As of date, Durst’s second wife, self-professed wannabe “female Harry Helmsley” and real estate executive Debrah Lee Charatan, has yet to get a mention in trial notes, but she surely eventually will. The Daily Mail once noted her as audaciously announcing: “I knew if I couldn’t be a star, I wouldn’t be happy.” She’s frankly instead lucky that she didn’t end up another victim.

All of them were named Igor and of them, in a “rare interview with the ‘New York Times’ in January 2015, Douglas Durst, the head of the family’s real estate empire, shared that his oddball brother had practiced “killing and disposing his wife” using the dogs. He declared: “Before the disappearance of my sister-in-law, Bob had a series of Alaskan Malamutes, which is like a husky. He had seven of them, and they all died, mysteriously, of different things, within six months of his owning them. All of them named Igor. We don’t know how they died, and what happened to their bodies. In retrospect, I now believe he was practicing killing and disposing his wife with those dogs.”

Then married couple Bill and Jill Stevenson. Mr Stevenson alleges he had sexual relations with Kathie Durst ten days before she disappeared and claims this might explain her disappearance. Jill Stevenson went on to later marry Joe Biden subsequently.
The suspected serial killer came to wider public attention after ‘The Jinx’ went viral. During filming of the documentary, he declared to camera: “There it is. You’re caught! …. You’re right, of course. But you can’t imagine. … Arrest him … I don’t know what’s in the house … Oh, I want this … What a disaster … He was right. I was wrong. And the burping … I’m having difficulty with the question … What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course.”
Robert Durst, whom got away with killing Morris Black based on claiming self-defense in spite of dismembering his body, stands accused of killing his friend Susan Berman in the current trial. It is likely he could subsequently face trial for the death of his first wife, Kathie, and he is potentially also linked to the disappearances of Lynne Schulze from Middlebury, Vermont in 1971 and Karen Mitchell from Eureka, California and Kristen Modafferi, who was last seen in San Francisco in 1997.
