         ROBERT DURST: AN ID MURDER MYSTERY is an unabridged look into the investigation of Robert Durst for the murder of Susan Berman, Durst’s close friend, who was found shot execution-style nearly two decades ago. While Durst maintains his innocence, many suspect he killed Berman to prevent her from telling police the truth about his wife Kathleen’s suspicious disappearance from New York in 1982. The 2-part special builds on the explosive news coming out of HBO’s The Jinx to bring viewers a comprehensive, 360-degree exploration into the case starting from the very beginning and extending to new information from the present day.
 

         All-new and exclusive interviews featured throughout this  limited special include Jim and Sharon McCormack, Kathleen’s brother and sister-in-law; Ruth Mayer and Ellen Strauss, Kathleen’s friends; Dick DeGuerin, Durst’s defense attorney; and Susan Criss, the former judge who presided over the 2003 trial for the murder of Morris Black where Durst was acquitted. Others featured throughout the mini-series include legal experts and journalists who’ve followed the rollercoaster case the last four decades including legal analyst Beth Karas; true crime journalist Diane Dimond; crime reporter Jane Velez-Mitchell; and New York Times reporter Charles Bagli.
