An Excerpt (on his 2001 shoplifting arrest in Pennsylvania) from the book “A Deadly Secret”:

622x350

“Sorry, pal, but I have to take you in,” said Benner, who escorted Bobby out of the store and placed him in the back of the cruiser for the ten-minute ride to the police station in Bath.

Durst sat there with hands cuffed behind his back and mumbled to himself.

Benner couldn’t make out what he was saying, so he reached over and slowly turned down his police radio, wanting to hear every word.

Durst was looking out the car window, talking about age, and saying how stupid he was.

“I can’t believe this. I’m fifty-eight years old and get caught for theft! What an asshole! What an asshole!”

Benner couldn’t escape that voice, that shrill…”

  1. I found this passage to be interesting too. They way he mumbles to himself similar to his bathroom ramblings. I also for some reason find his use of “caught” to be strange. I mean I guess it’s the way one would think to themselves, but it’s just the past tense of it that sounds odd to me. “Caught “”and killed them all” just implies he’s thinking busted for EVERYTHING vs. a phrase like “there it is, you go busted” referring to just Berman’s death. I don’t know. Prolly overthinking it.
