Robert Durst Found With Stash of Cash, Latex Mask, Fake ID, Passport, Police Say

Items revealed in warrant related to Durst's arrest in New Orleans.

The new glimpse into Durst’s alleged life before his arrest in a plush New Orleans hotel room Sunday was detailed in a search warrant that also included items authorities say they found when they searched Durst’s luxury condominium in Houston Tuesday.

Durst, 71, faces gun and drug charges in Louisiana related to the items allegedly found when he was arrested, and those charges, in combination with past convictions, could keep Durst locked up for the rest of his life.

"Just for those gun charges here in Louisiana, he could face up to life in prison," Orleans Parish District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro said, referring to prior cases that could influence sentencing.

Prosecutors in Los Angeles want access to Durst, too, and Durst has agreed to be extradited on a charge of capital murder in the 2000 killing of his best friend, Susan Berman. Durst's attorneys have maintained he is innocent of the murder charge.

But this morning, it seems that revelation may not have been such a bombshell after all. Police documents reveal the Los Angeles Police Department first compared the so-called cadaver letter to samples of Durst's handwriting years ago and determined they were a match, but it wasn't until recently that they ruled out another possible author.
