New York tycoon and convicted murderer dies in prison

Robert Durst, a wealthy New York real estate heir convicted of assassinating his best friend and sentenced to life in prison, has died.

He was 78 years old at the time. Durst died in a state prison hospital in Stockton, according to his attorney Chip Lewis.

He claimed it was due to natural causes as a result of a variety of health conditions.

In September, Durst was found guilty of shooting Susan Berman at point-blank range in her Los Angeles home in 2000.

On Oct. 14, he was given a life sentence. His trial counsel, Dick DeGuerin, stated he was hospitalized with COVID-19 two days later.

Durst has been suspected of the disappearance and deaths of those around him for decades before he was finally convicted of two murders.
