A 71-year-old millionaire was arrested in Houston for allegedly urinating on candy at a CVS store, 11 years after he admitted to murdering his neighbor in self defense and disposing of his dismembered body in Galveston Bay.
Robert Durst, the son of a wealthy New York real estate mogul, made headlines in 1982 when his wife vanished. The 2010 film “All Good Things” starring Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst was inspired by the disappearance. All Good Things is a reference to a health store that Durst and his missing wife, Kathleen McCormack, owned in the 1970s.
In 2001, body parts belonging to his next door neighbor, 71-year-old Morris Black, were found scattered throughout Galveston Bay in Texas. On the run, Durst was wanted for shooting and dismembering Black.
When he was finally caught, Durst claimed he murdered Black in self defense and dismembered his body. He was acquitted in 2003.
Durst was arrested in Houston on Monday on misdemeanor charges. He allegedly got into an argument with CVS staff on Sunday night and then urinated on $100 worth of candy at the checkout counter.
Durst was estranged from his family in the early 1990s, according to the Daily Mail, after he was passed over as head of the billion-dollar Durst Organization in favor of his brother Douglas.
In 2006, he reportedly won a settlement from his family, securing a $65 million piece of his family fortune.
