True Robert Durst From HBO's The Jinx Arrested Roberts Durst from HBO's series The Jinx has been arrested. The 71-year-old was arrested in New Orleans on Saturday. The controversial figure was arrested on a murder warrant issued by police in Los Angeles related to the death of his friend Susan Berman. Durst's arrest comes a day before the final episode of the HBO series The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst airs. His attorney, Chip Lewis, confIrmed that the warrant was related to Berman's death. Durst was scheduled to appear in court in New Orleans, Lewis said. "We will waive extradition in an attempt to expedite the process of getting into court in LA to answer and defend against the charges," Lewis revealed in a statement. The New York real estate owner has made national headlines as a person of interest or suspect in three deaths since 1982. The investigation into Berman's death was recently reopened by police in Los Angeles. Durst has denied killing Berman, but some believed he had a motive, allegedly wanting to silence her about the 1982 disappearance of his first wife, Kathleen Durst, another death he has been investigated for but never charged. Suspiciously, Berman was about to meet with investigators in New York about the disappearance of Durst before she died. Kathleen was officially declared dead in 2001, and Durst has said he has no idea what happened to her. Durst was also charged in the 2001 killing of a neighbor in Galveston,  Texas, but he claimed self-defense and was later found not guilty. Although there have also been suspicions raised about this case too with regard to Durst's detailing of the events in the case. Intrigued by his story HBO taped 25 hours of interviews with Durst which was turned into the documentary series The Jinx. The series has investigated the deaths involving Durst while interviewing people that knew him and digging into his unusual back story and up-bringing in New York.
