California v. Robert Durst

Hi listeners, so many people have reached out regarding the Korematsu episode commenting about how much they enjoyed having a co-host on to discuss the episode that we've done it again! 

Forensic death investigator Joseph Scott Morgan joins Paul to discuss the California trial of Robert Durst.  Durst, a member of one of the richest New York City families was put on trial in California in the summer of 2021 for the murder of his best friend, Susan Berman, which occurred on Christmas Eve, 2000.

The trial, however, seemed to be only marginally about Susan Berman, and the prosecution team spent months eliciting testimony regarding the disappearance of Durst's wife, Kathy, back in 1982 and the homicide of Morris Black in 2003.  Durst had already been arrested and put on trial for the murder of Black and was acquitted by a jury back in 2004.

This trial had no shortage of odd strategy decisions, dramatic courtroom recreations, and egos.  

Listen as Joe and Paul dive into the litigation and bring their unique perspectives.
