NOBODY DIED

I’ve been watching that show The Jinx:  The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst on HBO.  Have you seen it?  It’s a six-part docu-series that follows Manhattan real estate scion Robert Durst’s life in order to retrace his past and to make sense of his present.  See, Durst has been a suspect in three homicides since the eighties.  First his wife disappeared off the planet, never to be seen or heard from again; then his best friend was shot in the head in her California home; and finally, there was the grumpy old neighbor in Texas Durst did admit to shooting, but he claims he did so in self-defense.  The dismembering of the body that took place after he shot the guy?  That was just strategic thinking to enable him to get a dead body out of a house without drawing too much attention to himself, and he couldn’t very well carry the thing in one piece since he’s a man of very short stature.  

Besides, he had spent the last several months masquerading as a mute woman.
