No, Durst and Black had argued (Durst said) while Durst was holding his own gun and it ... well, you know ... *discharged* ... and umm, Black was shot in the face and died.
Durst readily admitted getting drunk and dismembering the body and throwing the parts in the bay - he said he panicked because ... now think about this ... he would be a suspect, since he was already under investigation in another death close to him.
(That was the woman who was researching the Mob for a book about her father - or, maybe it was her best friend - details are fuzzy for me at this juncture, lol.)
I can never remember his first name, whether it’s Richard or Robert, which is why I didn’t post it.
It’s Robert Durst, so just google that and you’ll find all kinds of stuff about him. I have a file full of notes somewhere, but have lost track of his last bizarre actions.
we had a weekend house on Galveston Bay when this happened and I remember thinking that body parts could have washed up under our dock. But strangely I didn’t pay much attention until the jury let the creep off. the jury had to have been bought off, don’t you think?
