Before Making A Murderer, There Was The Jinx

True crime is having a moment, and before Making A Murderer gripped the planet, there was a HBO docu-series called The Jinx.

The Jinx was a documentary that centred around a man named Robert Durst, who was accused of multiple murders over several decades including that of his first wife Kathie and a neighbour, Morris Black.


The series examined the circumstantial evidence linking Durst to the murder of Susan Berman.

She may have had information about the disappearance of Kathie Durst and could have approached the police, so self-preservation was Durst's key motive.

Durst was arrested for this murder in 2015 after the final episode aired.

There's now been an update in the case, according to Mashable. Durst has pleaded guilty to a weapons charge in the State of Louisiana, which means he may be extradited to California to face trial for the murder of Berman.


Durst's attorney made a statement after the hearing:

"This agreement has a lot of moving parts and a lot of jurisdictions. What we're doing and have been trying to do from the start is get Bob Durst to Los Angeles. Bob Durst did not kill Susan Berman, does not know who did, and wants to prove it."
