Kathie Durst's Brother, Jeanine Pirro Believe 'The Jinx' Revelations Confirm Robert Durst's Guilt
"The revelation was something we've been waiting for for 33 years," Jim McCormack said on NBC's 'Today.'
As Robert Durst waits to be extradited to L.A. on charges that he murdered his friend Susan Berman, the brother of Durst's wife, Kathie, who went missing in 1982 and whom Durst is suspected of killing, and former Westchester D.A. Jeanine Pirro believe the revelations the real-estate heir offered in HBO's documentary series The Jinx amount to an admission of guilt.
McCormack said he thinks Durst's off-camera confessions, audio of which was played at the end of Sunday night's episode, include admitting he killed Kathie.
"In my heart of hearts, absolutely," McCormack said on NBC's Today. "He was a note-taker and he'd make a list of things to do…and since he didn't have pen and paper, he was just audibly making a list of things…. So when he said 'They got me,' or words to that effect, well, they got him."
McCormack watched the final episode with The Jinx filmmaker and some of Kathie's other family members and said of Durst's closing remarks, "The revelation was something we've been waiting for for 33 years."
And he thinks Durst will reveal more about what happened to his sister.
"I believe that Bob will somehow have an epiphany of conscience," McCormack said. "I think he's about ready to say, 'Enough is enough, and this is what Kathie would want and this is what I'm going to do.' "
Meanwhile, former Westchester D.A. Jeanine Pirro, who currently hosts Fox News' Justice, thinks that the matching handwriting between the note directing police to a "cadaver" in Berman's house and a letter Durst sent Berman while she was alive will be enough to put him away forever, she said on Today, pointing out that even Durst couldn't distinguish between the writing on the two.
"The bottom line is only one person wrote that cadaver note. Only one person's handwriting is consistent with that," Pirro said of Durst's role in Berman's murder. "In addition, you have him confirming it verbally, and he had motive, means and opportunity."
