What has Robert Durst said about Susan Berman’s death?, part two
Durst said he checked Susan’s pulse and lifted her off the floor before running to another room to call 911 but found the phone line wasn’t working.
He then left and tried to contact authorities from a pay phone on Sunset Boulevard, which is about two miles away.
When an operator answered, Durst said he started to have reservations.
He said: “I decided I did not want to give them my name.
“I was aware that my voice is very recognizable even without a name.”
He said he instead opted to write what has come to be known as the cadaver note – a scrap of paper with Susan’s address and the word “cadaver” that was mailed to the Beverly Hills Police Department.
Under questioning, Durst admitted he had lied about authoring the note over the years, including during an interview for the HBO documentary The Jinx.
