Robert Durst Case Dismissed In Louisiana

Robert Durst Case Dismissed In Louisiana

Robert Durst Case Dismissed In Louisiana

The Robert Durst case has garnered much attention in the news lately due to the bizarre circumstances and his recent arrest. However, the case has gotten more complex as a Louisiana state weapons case was dropped this week. According to local news, officials have recently decided not to prosecute the charges that had been in process for more than a month. After dropping the case, authorities declined to comment, so we can only speculate as to why the charges have been dropped against the man that many are claiming is suffering from severe mental illness.

Under the provisions of the law, the state has reserved the right to reinstitute the case anytime within the six-year statute of limitations on the charges. Durst, an infamous New York real estate heir has long been suspected as the primary suspect in a California murder case from 15 years ago. According to court documents Durst has been jailed in Louisiana since his March 14 after federal agents said they found a loaded gun and marijuana in Durst’s hotel room. These incidents led to indictments in both state and federal court.

Although the state weapons charges have been dropped, the federal case, against Durst for weapons charges remains intact. If found guilty of weapons charges, Durst could face a 10-year sentence in that case, scheduled to go to trial in September. However, given the recent developments in California legal proceedings, the weapons charges may have to wait.

Durst’s has been publicly linked to three unsolved and suspected murders recently in major news coverage in the HBO documentary series “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst.” Durst has denied responsibility for all three deaths.

In 2003, an attorney helped Durst win acquittal in a charge that he murdered his neighbor in Texas. Durst admitted to shooting his neighbor and dismembering his body. However, despite the body washing up in a nearby bay in pieces, Durst was acquitted after asserting that he shot his neighbor in self-defense.

Durst also has been suspected in the still-unsolved disappearance of his first wife, Kathleen Durst, who vanished in 1982. The murder cases have recently also reached a critical stage of development after Durst reportedly confessed to “murdering them all”, when his microphone was accidentally left on in the bathroom after part of the HBO interview. The trial and its accompanying media frenzy should be interesting indeed.
