Robert Durst, millionaire and New York real estate heir, found guilty of best friend's murder. Durst, 78, was convicted of the first-degree murder of Susan Berman, who was shot at point-blank range in her Los Angeles home in December 2000. The case took on new life after New York real estate heir Durst participated in a documentary that connected him to the slaying linked to his wife's 1982 disappearance. Ref. USAToday.
