Robert Durst’s stunning TV confession that he “killed them all” can likely be used against him in court, legal experts said Monday.
Durst’s off-camera open-mike admission was the highlight of HBO’s “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst,” which finished its six-episode run Sunday night.
“There it is. You’re caught!” Durst whispered to himself in a bathroom, ostensibly not realizing his microphone was still on.
“What the hell did I do?” he asked himself, and he answered, “Killed them all, of course.”
New York defense lawyer Ben Brafman said the confession “should be admissible, as it was not made by Durst while in custody and not made in response to a question posed by a law-enforcement agent.”
The documentary also shows filmmaker Andrew Jarecki confronting Durst with a copy of an anonymous letter that alerted Beverly Hills police to go look for a “cadaver” at victim Susan Berman’s address.
Durst offers that whoever sent it was “taking a big risk. You’re sending a letter to police that only the killer could have written.”
Then, in the final episode, Jarecki reveals another envelope, which Durst acknowledges mailing to Berman, that has similar writing in block letters and also misspells the address as “Beverley.”
Former Westchester County prosecutor Jeanine Pirro, who investigated Durst over the 1982 disappearance of his wife Kathie, told The Post, “The unearthing of this evidence is huge for the California case.
Robert Durst’s words will come back to haunt him.”
“Not only did he admit [he] ‘killed them all,’ but only the murderer could have written the ‘cadaver’ note,” she said.
