The heir to a real estate fortune in New York is under arrest in New Orleans in connection with one of the murders prosecutors have long wanted to pin on him.

FOX News Radio's Eben Brown has the details.

Robert Durst, whose family partly owns the new World Trade Center, has been under law enforcement's watch for more than 30 years, first for his wife Kathie's killing and then the disappearance of friend, Susan Berman.

His arrest Sunday in New Orleans came as the final part of an HBO docu-series on his life was about to air. His microphone picked up an aside comment...

(Durst) "Killed them all, of course."

Durst's attorney in 2001 convinced a Texas jury his killing and dismembering of an elderly neighbor was an act of self defense.
