The husband and wife first met each other in the late 1980s, and they reportedly dated for about two years.

Who was Robert Durst’s first wife Kathleen McCormack? 

In the fall of 1971, Durst met Kathleen McCormack, a medical student in her final year.

After just two dates, he invited McCormack to share his home in Vermont, where he had opened a health food store.

She moved there in January 1972.

But Durst’s father pressured him to move back to New York to work in the family business.

So they returned to Manhattan and married on April 12, 1973.

What happened to Kathleen McCormack?

McCormack disappeared on January 31, 1982. She was 29 at the time. 

Her body has never been found, as she was declared dead in 2017. 

Durst has never been charged with Kathie’s death and denies any knowledge about what happened to her.

Some 18 years after Kathie vanished, Durst’s longtime friend and confidante Berman was found murdered execution-style in her Los Angeles home. 

Berman had served as Durst’s unofficial spokesperson when his wife Kathie disappeared in 1982.

On September 17, a frail Durst was convicted of the first-degree murder for shooting Berman at point-blank range in the back of the head inside her home in December 2000.

Prosecutors say Berman was about to tell cops how she helped cover up the slaying of Kathie.

Berman, the daughter of a Las Vegas mobster, was Durst’s longtime confidante had informed friends she spared him a ticket to prison by providing a phony alibi soon after his wife’s disappearance.

Durst was portrayed during the trial as an elite and a narcissist who thought he was above the law.

In closing arguments, Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney John Lewin told jurors they had to hold the 78-year-old Durst accountable for Berman’s slaying.

“Bob Durst is not crazy. He’s not some nut job serial killer who goes around killing for the thrill of it,” Lewin said.

“Don’t let this narcissistic psychopath get away with what he’s done.”

No charges have ever been brought against Durst in connection with Kathie’s disappearance.
