The Mystery of Robert Durst

For seven weeks last year, in the Texas port city of Galveston, Texas, one of the wealthiest men in America was standing trial for the bizarre murder of an elderly man. Robert Durst, 60, and Morris Black, 71, were neighbors. Durst claims Black came into his apartment, grabbed a gun that Durst had hidden and pointed it at him. Durst then said that they struggled over the gun before it went off, killing Black accidentally. At Durst's two-month trial, the jury's not-guilty verdict, after five days of deliberation, shocked everyone – including Durst himself.
