Real-estate heir Robert Durst assumed the identities of dozens of people – even using the Social Security number of the wife he’s suspected of murdering, a new book about the cross-dressing millionaire says.

Author Matt Birkbeck details the tragic final years of Durst’s wife, Kathie, including her cocaine addiction and beatings at the hands of her husband.

The book, “A Deadly Secret: The Strange Disappearance of Kathie Durst,” also claims:

  • When Durst was an adolescent, a doctor concluded that his “hostility toward his father and his younger brother” could lead him to “a personality decomposition and possibly even schizophrenia.”

  • Although Kathie disappeared without a trace, a key Manhattan prosecutor said in 1982, Durst could be indicted for murder – but the evidence was all circumstantial.

  • A mysterious private investigator approached Kathie’s family and friends, offering to kidnap Durst and question him using truth drugs. His proposal, with a $10,000 price tag, was turned down.

Durst was arrested earlier this year in the dismemberment slaying of an elderly neighbor in Galveston, Texas.
