Robert Durst, Susan, Lewin discussed on Jury Duty: The Trial of Robert Durst


She provided diverse with an alibi or some version of that. And bob's response to that really was one of the stunning moments of the trial. Why don't you talk about what it was like. Hearing all of that in the courtroom absolutely he starts talking about the witnesses and about susan and he was very dismissive of the woman who wants described as his best friend. You know he said well. I didn't really believe half of what she told me. I'm not saying there's anything wrong. With the witnesses it. What's wrong with what susan said. What susan told and this was a really stunning moments all of a sudden. Everybody's sitting up straight moving onto susan towards the end of the day. John lewin came. Around to discussing testimony regarding robert durst trip to los angeles. In december of two thousand and he started by talking about durst. Ca alleged conversation with emily altman. And the fact that. Emily allman revealed in court. For the first time the fact that robert durst had been in los angeles at the time of susan. Berman's death charlie. You have spoken to emily. Allman what did you make of the way that robert durst handled those questions from john. Lewin well i it's a it's a peculiar thing because bob is now admitting not only that he was in los angeles but he was a the person perhaps the first person to find susan's lifeless body and so but now he's attacking emily for that so i think it's a case You know he's trying to exact revenge on her because it was actually her testimony. That ultimately led the defense to admit that bob was in los angeles and that he wrote the cadaver note right and then at the end of the day. We probably got the best exchange of the dialogue. Between lewin and endorsed it was at that point that durst for the first time actually stated that he thought the killer was in the house with him and susan's lifeless body. He implied in his direct testimony. But he actually said it underlines questioning and lewin said will how is it possible that the body was cold if the killer was still in the house and then durst denied that he said that the body was cold then lewin played the clip where he says he put his hand over susan's mouth and it was cold and bob tried to say that it was her breath that was cold the breath of her lifeless body and liu and made a quip you mean. The stiff was breathing. Charlie what was the reaction of the jurors when dir said that and when liu and made the quip about the stiff again. It's pretty hard you know. They're they're off on the side. But i think it was a little bit of a jaw dropper there and lewin expressed it right. How can our breath feel cold. She's a steph yet charlie. It was a stunning moment. And i think we're going to get some more tomorrow. Because you know it was a bit of a cliffhanger today well we absolutely look forward to hearing.
