Robert Durst Attorneys: FBI Illegally Searched Hotel in New Orleans

Robert Durst, the millionaire real-estate heir who was the subject of a popular TV show, was subjected to an illegal FBI search before he was arrested on murder charges, his attorney said this week.

The Boston Herald reports that the FBI “rummaged” through the 71-year-old man’s hotel room without a proper warrant.

The warrant led to Durst’s arrest and the confiscation of a revolver and 5 ounces of marijuana in New Orleans.
Durst’s attorneys argued that the sworn statement used to get the warrant “contains a material misrepresentation designed to cover up the FBI’s unlawful, warrantless search of Mr. Durst’s hotel room.”

Durst is accused of killing his friend friend Susan Berman in 2000 to keep her quiet about another murder investigation involving Durst.
