Earlier this week, Robert Durst made national headlines after his arrest for a murder more than a decade ago.

Millionaire real estate heir Robert Durst’s life is so bizarre that HBO made a documentary series about it called “The Jinx.”

But over the weekend, two major turns of events could end Durst’s freedom: his arrest in New Orleans for a 2000 killing, and the broadcast of his restroom mutterings that were picked up on his live microphone.

Durst was always believed to be behind the disappearance of his first wife, Kathleen McCormack. She disappeared in 1982 and has never been found.

In 2001, the body of his neighbor, Morris Black, was found dismembered in the Galveston Bay. Durst was arrested for the crime but was acquitted of murder, saying Black was killed out of self-defense.

In 2002, a friend of Durst’s, Susan Berman, was found shot execution-style in her home just days before meeting with investigators to talk about Durst and what he knew about McCormack’s disappearance.

After the final episode of “The Jinx” was shot, Durst was recorded while in the bathroom.

“There it is. You’re caught,” he said.

“What the hell did I do?” Durst says from a bathroom at the end of the documentary. “Killed them all, of course.”

This past weekend, police arrested Durst in connection to Berman’s murder.

On Thursday, Dateline will run a special feature on the case against Durst.

Dateline’s “Robert Durst: Inside the Long Strange Trip” will air on NBC at 7 p.m.
