Holy shit, this guy’s Wikipedia page is fucking crazy. First of all, his wife has been “disappeared” for the last 18 years. Also a lady who was his long-time friend who was believed to have knowledge of his wife’s “disappearance” was found murdered “execution-style”— “Durst was questioned in both cases but not charged.” So, there’s that.
He then moved to Texas in 2000 and “began cross-dressing to divert attention from the disappearance” of his wife. Then, they started finding body parts of his elderly neighbor in Galveston Bay. He gets arrested, released on bail, becomes Ameria’s first “Billion-dollar fugitive” until he gets caught at a Wegmans in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania “trying to steal a chicken sandwich and a Band-Aid, even though he had $500 cash in his pocket. A police search of his rented car yielded $37,000 in cash, two guns, marijuana and [his murder victim’s] driver’s license.” Then, he goes on trial, admits “to using a paring knife, two saws and an axe to dismember" his neighbor’s body, but claims he shot his elderly neighbor in the face in self-defense, and a Texas jury buys it and acquits him! He gets some minor amount of time because of “destroying evidence” (i.e. dismembering his neighbor’s body), gets parole almost immediately, and then violates parole almost immediately. His own brother: “He’ll kill again, I have no doubt, the question is who is next?”
Then, he bought a townhouse in Harlem (located next to a mortuary!) and now he publicly urinates on candy. Because ha ha he’s rich and this is America.
