“I remember sitting in my house and taking a very deep exhale because it’s like, oh, he did it again. He walked,” McCormack recalls in a sneak peek of Robert Durst: An ID Murder Mystery part 2. “Bob always believed that you could get away with anything.”

The real estate millionaire was accused of killing Black in 2001, but was acquitted after a jury found that he acted in self-defense. He has also been accused of slaying crime writer Susan Berman in 2000 and will stand trial in 2019.

Robert’s first wife, Kathleen, a former medical student, went missing in 1982 and was never found. Robert was never charged with a crime related to her disappearance.
