Millionaire murder suspect Robert Durst was denied bail in a New Orleans court today after prosecutors warned the court that he was a flight risk. The subject of HBO's The Jinx was arrested on a drug-and-gun charge in Louisiana on March 14, but is also facing murder charges in Los Angeles in connection with the death of Susan Berman in Los Angeles over a decade ago.
Prosecutors argue Durst has used up to ten aliases and stopped using his cellphone because he knew authorities were tracking his movements. FBI agents believed Durst was going to flee to Cuba at the time of his arrest. He registered under an alias at his hotel, paid with cash, and had with fake documents, a law enforcement source told ABC News. He also had $117,000 in cash mailed to his New Orleans hotel room, where investigators also found a map of Cuba.
So pick your head up, Suge Knight. Your bail might have been set at $25 million, but at least you got it.
