Accused killer Robert Durst confessed to butchering his first wife, killing and eating a prostitute pal who knew about it — and later gunning down a friend who planned to turn him in to authorities, according to claims in a new book!
In an exclusive blockbuster, a former confidant told RadarOnline.com he wants to testify against the real estate scion at his upcoming trial for murdering pal Susan Berman — and expose the cannibal as America’s wealthiest serial killer!
In “Sex and the Serial Killer: My Bizarre Times with Robert Durst,” jewel thief William Steel claims the mad millionaire frequently hung out in his Brooklyn, N.Y., apartment in the ’80s doing drugs, having S&M sex with prostitutes and bragging about murder!
Steel, who is using a pseudonym because of fears for his safety, once pressed the cocaine-fueled sicko about his first wife, Kathleen McCormack Durst, 29, who vanished in Westchester County, N.Y., in 1982.
Steel claims the monster admitted that since they were divorcing, he feared Kathleen would snitch about the 1971 disappearance of college coed Lynne Schulze in Vermont and divulge secrets about the Durst family real estate empire.
“He Durst did say that he’d been planning to kill her because she was turning over documents that were incriminating to him,” according to Steel.
Steel said Durst brought a suitcase to his home one day, claiming it held Kathleen’s remains. Durst has never been charged in her disappearance, and her body has never been found. When Steel asked him what became of the prostitute who tried to extort money from him in exchange for her silence in Kathleen’s murder, he claims Durst casually replied: “So I tortured her, strangled her and ate her.”
What’s more, shortly before Susan’s murder, Steel met Durst at the Ritz-Carlton near West Palm Beach, Fla., to discuss an assassination plot to shut her up.
“We got to kill Susan,” a shocked Steel recalled Durst telling him. “I love Susan. But I have no choice. I have to kill her because she knows all about my killing.”
Susan, a writer, was found shot dead execution-style in her Los Angeles home on Dec. 24, 2000.
To cover his tracks, Steel claims Durst, now 75, offered him millions to arrange a “Charles Manson–style” murder spree of A-list stars to fool cops into thinking a serial killer offed Susan!
Steel told Radar he never intended to carry out the plan and was just leading Durst on to get information out of him. But years later, Durst dropped another bombshell when Steel asked about Susan.
“She’s not with us anymore,” Durst ghoulishly replied.
When asked if Susan was dead, Durst boasted: “Yeah, when you want something done right you do it yourself.”
Durst eventually fled to Galveston, Texas, where he disguised himself as a woman to avoid detection. There he allegedly confessed to dismembering elderly neighbor Morris Black in 2001, but beat the murder rap by declaring self-defense.
Durst was eventually arrested in New Orleans in March 2015 and hauled back to L.A. to face murder charges in Susan’s death. The trial begins in September.
Durst’s lawyer, Dick DeGuerin, said his client is innocent.
But in a 2015 docuseries, Durst muttered to himself off camera: “You’re caught! … What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course.”
Steel hopes his book, available on Amazon, will bury Durst.
“He liked to call himself both the modern-day Jack the Ripper and Caligula, the Roman emperor whose murderous sexual deviancy also knew no bounds,” Steel wrote.
