    Post Robert Durst Ongoing Trial

    This is my first time being on this site, but was simply looking for a forum in which to share ideas and thoughts. I have looked over the rules of the site and hope I am abiding by them.
    I can't say I have been a person that has followed the Robert Durst case closely, and up until recently didn't pay much attention to his past or present trials.
    After watching the six part mini series, the Jinx, I was captivated by the details and have watched many other clips pertaining to the individual cases.
    I do not have a degree or any education in Psychology, though I have had plenty of personal experience with therapy.
    I was somewhat perplexed at the, seemingly, strong attention to detail when watching the Jinx, but found it interesting that there were a couple of things never brought up.
    On occasion, when interviewed, it seems Robert Durst would talk about himself in the third person. Now, I understand this is not a completely abnormal thing, as I suppose some people do this. However, the subject i wanted to touch on was the effect his mother's apparent suicide played in his life and with his mental faculties.
    I am not at all making any claims or suggestions to be honest, but rather throwing an alternative way of looking at something out there to be pondered.
    I know it has been stated by some who know him that he does mutter to himself quite often. I think we all do that, but I know when I perhaps talk to myself, I'm not talking as though I'm saying it to myself but perhaps as I'm saying it to someone else. With that, perhaps when talking to himself, he could possibly be talking to someone else, alive or deceased. I am posting some dialogue from the actual Jinx mini series here to be discussed.

    An example of Robert Durst talking in the 3rd person (I believe from episode 2)

    “And, the LA police have been investigating for awhile now, and they’re unable to put HIM in Los Angeles.”

    The discussion regarding Robert Durst's mom's suicide, also from episode 2

    Bob “My father came and got me and he said, I’d like…, come on over here…, want you to , you know, to see mommy. And we looked out a hall window, out onto the roof, and there was mommy. And I waived at mommy, I don’t know that she saw me. It never went through my mind that, what is she doing out on the roof in her nighty. I mean it just didn’t focus on me, there’s mommy, waive at mommy, okay now go on back to bed.”

    Bob “People are telling me, ah your mommy will be safe, she will be right here, and they’re starting to lower the coffin into the ground. And I’m going, wait a minute, mommy’s in this box? Oh yea, she’ll be right here. Get mommy out of the box. I don’t want mommy in the box!”

    A word (mommy), I believe, to have been left out of the self discussion Robert Durst has with himself in the restroom at the end of episode 6. If this word was indeed not heard and/or included, could the discussion perhaps be framed completely different??

    Mom “And there it is, you’re caught.”
    Bob “Mommy, you’re right of course, but you can’t imagine”
    Mom “Arrest him.”
    Bob “I don’t know what’s in the houise. Oh I want this.”
    Mom “What a disaster.”
    Bob “He was right, I was wrong.”
    Mom “And the burping.”
    Bob “I’m having difficulty with the question. What the hell did I do?”
    Mom “Killed them all, of course.”

    "Defendant misstates the facts and requests time to conduct additional investigation to locate evidence that, even if discovered, would have no legal bearings on the merits of his claim," stated one of the two motions filed Monday by prosecutors.

    The issues were originally set for hearing in February, when both sides agreed to a delay until April 25. Prosecutors now want that hearing to proceed as planned.

    I tend to agree with you, ehinkley. I have watched the Jinx once and watched a few episodes again today. The one time RD showed joy was when he spoke of how good things were before his mother died. I still have convos with my deceased mom and grandma when I am alone. It gives me both comfort and guidance.

    Thanks for starting this thread. I look forward to good discussion.
    ...and be sure your sin will find you out.

    I had a similar thought about the times he talked to himself. It was like he was talking to someone or a split personality. So odd. He definitely has issues, and I agree that it stems from back when his mother died.

    Hey everyone, I have been fixated with everything Robert Durst after watching The Jinx. From Kathleen Durst to Morris Black, I am baffled he hasn't been convicted of murder. With the upcoming trial for Susan Berman, I understand they are doing the preliminary hearing now. Does anyone have any insight as to when the actual trial will start and what court it will take place in? I am looking forward to attending the trial in LA.
