I read the affidavit in support of the search warrant in Houston. According to the affidavit, Durst testified in Galveston that he was with his wife over the Christmas holidays in 2000. Susan Berman's body was found on December 24,2000, and LE has records showing he was, in fact, in California. Further, the second Mrs. Durst (whom he married on December 11 or 12, 2000) told police back then that he did not spend the Christmas holidays with her and she didn't know where he was. She is an interesting character herself.
So, I am wondering what the State of Louisiana will do. Will they extradite him to California, or hold him in nola for trial on the gun charges? Who will DeGuerin hire as his local counsel in Los Angeles? Chip Lewis, another defense attorney has signaled the defense will include "this is all about Hollywood." That might play with a Texas jury, but will it work in LA?
I have to disagree with Stern about Durst wanting to get caught. DeGuerin et al. will charge him a shitload of money for this latest mess . DeGuerin's late law partner was Percy Foreman, a legal legend. Percy was once asked why he charged his clients such high fees, and he responded "Hell, if the juries won't punish them, somebody has to!"
