Millionaire Robert Durst indicted on firearm charges in Louisiana

Seventy-one-year-old New York City real estate heir Robert Alan Durst was indicted on April 8 by a grand jury in New Orleans, Louisiana for the possession of firearms by a felon and possession of both a firearm and an illegal drug, which was 5 ounces of marijuana, KTTC reported.

Durst’s attorneys said the charges have forced him to stay in New Orleans against his wishes. Also, his defense will likely include the argument that his weapon charges arrest was illegal, as FBI agents searched his hotel room without a warrant and before his arrest.

The indictment contained 15 aliases. Two were variations of his name, while others were monikers he has used previously: Dorthy Ciner, the name he used as a deaf-mute man in Texas, and Morris Black, which is the name of a neighbor he dismembered. In that situation, Durst was acquitted due to an argument of self-defense.
