Robert Durst Agrees to Extradition to Face Murder Charge in Los Angeles

Posted: Updated:
NBC News - Robert Durst, the real estate heir linked to two killings and a disappearance, agreed on Monday to travel to Los Angeles to face a murder charge after he was captured in an HBO documentary mumbling to himself: "Killed them all, of course."

In a brief hearing in New Orleans, Durst agreed to extradition. He spoke only to answer the judge — "Yes, I signed that" — when he was asked whether it was his signature on the extradition waiver.

Before the hearing, he sat in a glass-walled box separate from other inmates and spoke through a window to his lawyer.

Durst was arrested on Saturday, the day before HBO aired the final installment of a documentary called "The Jinx." Durst agreed to be interviewed for the documentary and was in a bathroom when an open microphone captured him talking to himself.

"There it is. You're caught," he said. He also said, "What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course."

The murder charge is connected to the 2000 killing of Susan Berman, his former spokeswoman and the daughter of a mob associate.

Durst was questioned but never charged in the 1982 disappearance of his wife, Kathleen. He shot to death and dismembered a neighbor in Texas in 2001, but he was acquitted on a self-defense claim.
