Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Robert Durst Has COVID-19 And Is On A Ventilator”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Robert Durst, the real estate heir who was sentenced to life in prison for murder on Thursday, is very sick with COVID-19 and has been placed on a ventilator, his lawyer told HuffPost on Saturday.

“I was very concerned about his condition Thursday in court. He was having difficulty breathing and speaking and was very weak,” attorney Dick DeGuerin wrote in an email, noting that he was getting tested for the disease as a precaution.

Durst, 78, slumped down in his wheelchair and appeared to have difficulty communicating in the courtroom, speaking in a hoarse voice. He had been convicted in September for the execution-style killing of his friend Susan Berman in 2000.

Prosecutors allege that Durst feared Berman would give up information about the mysterious 1982 disappearance of his first wife, Kathleen McCormack, who is presumed dead.
