Apparent Murder Confession In HBO's 'The Jinx'
Robert Durst, the focus of HBO’s documentary series “The Jinx,” was arrested in New Orleans on Saturday on a warrant related to a homicide investigation in Los Angeles County.
He has been the suspect in the unsolved killing of Susan Berman, a close friend of Durst — as well as the disappearance of his wife and another murder.
A day after the arrest, HBO aired an unguarded moment in which Durst apparently confesses on microphone. “What the hell did I do?” Mr. Durst whispers to himself. “Killed them all, of course.”
Here & Now’s Robin Young speaks with NPR TV critic Eric Deggans about the off-air drama surrounding HBO’s documentary, as well as his conversation with “The Jinx” director Andrew Jarecki.
