    I read that somewhere, but today I have read All Good Things was there in 1971, so I'm wondering if one of the stories was wrong. The info coming out today said 1971.

    I think/hope that attitude is changing. Back then they were definitely more careless with things like this. The first thought was they walked away. JMO

    That's what she wrote in her journal, 1972. Her brother says she moved to Vetmont in 1972. I saw somewhere the store opened in Jan 1972. I suppose Durst could have been in the area in Dec 10-11, 1971 getting permits, stocking etc?

    Apparently he must have owned it in 1971, but didn't run it until Jan 1972.
    From the book Cold Cases:
    https://books.google.com/books?id=F...robert durst all good things jan 1972&f=false

    The couple moved in together in January 1972 and relocated to Vermont, where they opened a health food store called All Good Things.

    Just finished watching it .. let me know what you thought. I was surprised how close it was to the Durst story actually. Quite liked the movie, but it did get boring near the end and I lost interest once Kathie was gone. One thing, it showed that he killed the dog, wasn't there anecdotal evidence that RD had killed a number of his dogs?

    He didn't need to go from the US though, all he had to do is fly or drive to Canada, cross the border with his mask and ID no problemo, then fly on to Cuba without question as he could go then as a tourist, whereas you cannot from the US. He would not have made it from the US, IMO. It would be much harder to escape via the US where he is likely on a watch list, than it would be from Canada where he wouldn't be.

    I am really starting to realize that he probably killed many, many people. I hope that this blows the top off of some cold cases.

    I know several people who go to Cuba yearly through Mexico. They love it there, especially the people.

    Yes, Mexico would also work. Almost anywhere would be more conspicuous than going to Cuba via the US.

    She disappeared a little over ten years before I was born, but from what I know the buildings are all pretty much the same except for interior renovations. The Keeler gulf station was sold in the late 80's but it is still a gulf station. Keeler's son is the current Addison County Sheriff, Don Keeler.

    Greyhound dropped the bus stop at the gas station in Middlebury about 10 years ago, you now have to travel to Burlington or Rutland for bus service.

    I am a little confused because I have seen mention of a bus station with some kind of access from All good things and then I have seen it stated that it was just a bus stop across the street at the gas station. I am going out of town Thursday for a long weekend, but next week I will go to the Vermont resource room at the library. They have all sorts of detailed maps and photos of the town throughout history, so I can clarify that aspect.

    Just had a theory on the IPAD shipping.

    When he was arrested, they showed a picture of some weed he got busted with and it looked like really good weed. I just have to wonder if maybe he would hide some good weed in a hollowed out portion of his IPAD and used private mailboxes as a way to ensure his weed traveled with him.
    He of course would not want to fly on airplanes trying to carry his own weed with him so I wonder if this was his way of keeping his supply with him when traveling.

    He probably had a reliable supplier in some state OR traveled to one of the states that now has legal weed and maybe he would stock up on it when there and then whenever he was traveling around to other places he could always be sure he had his supply with him by using the IPAD shipping method.

    Anyway just a theory I was thinking about because it doesnt make sense to me that he would have to ship his IPAD everywhere he went when traveling.
    I wondered if having a private mailbox maybe the shipping is not checked like it would be if going to regular public shipping places.

    Found more from the diary, he was already in Vermont in 1971, Kathie moved there in 1972. He sold the store in Dec 1972.

    http://www.***********/r/thejinx/comments/2zryp5/durst_bought_the_vermont_health_food_store/

    From Kathie's diary (Episode 2 @11.00):

    "We met in fall '71 - I was living & working in NYC whereas Bob was visiting NYC from Vermont. He had recently moved to Vermont and bought a health food store there. After two dates, he asked me to come live with him in Vermont and I did - in Jan '72.

    Najamy recalls, “Suddenly she realized that she had no power in her divorce case. She told me, ‘Gilberte, this man thinks he can do anything he wants to do and get away with it.’” Friends from nursing school counseled Kathie to report to the emergency room the next time Robert hit her so that the abuse would get on record. She was reluctant but on January 6, 1982, she showed up at Jacobi Hospital in the Bronx with bruises on her face.

    Three weeks later she vanished. She was 29.

    I respectfully disagree because his neighbor that he himself admitted to chopping up was not really a relationship I dont think. We could probably classify the neighbor as an "acquantance".

    For the girl that missed that final exam, I wonder if she got to talking to Durst about going to NY and he may have offered her a ride there because he knew NY really well because his dad owned his business there in NY.

    I wonder if maybe when she went back to retrieve her pencil or pen that maybe Durst pulled up and said to hop in.

    Once I learned about him chopping up the neighbor I began to think it is very possible he could have killed others.

    I could smell the sweet rich aroma through the TV set. LOL :)

    Yeah, back in my day, it was a pretty big hobby I had. Not anymore these days, but I still wonder some day I may move to Colorado and pick up the hobby again. LOL

    In 1994, after years of talking to himself and urinating in the wastebaskets at the family office, Robert was removed as the successor to his father, Seymour Durst. In his place, Douglas was installed. Robert walked out of the office without notice one day and cut off most contacts with his family.

    In recent years, Douglas said, he has been particularly concerned for the safety of his eldest daughter, Anita Durst, the head of an arts organization.

    “Bob seemed to have some fixation on her,” Douglas Durst said. “She had events in the city where he would show up.”
