After Robert Durst hired private investigators to probe his arrest in March 2015 for the murder of his friend Susan Burman, he reportedly stiffed them on a $130,000 bill, according to the New York Post.
Reportedly, Durst paid a $25,000 retainer, and the firm spend almost 500 hours on “field work and digital research” into the details surrounding his arrest. However, Durst didn’t pay the invoice, and by July, court papers report that the firm tried to get money though his lawyer, Steven Rabinowitz.
However, it failed, and the account is now “severely deliquent” at over $160,000 with interest. “We understand how difficult these past months have been for you, but also know that through Steve, that you honor your commitments,” Mansfield wrote to Durst in February 2016, according to The Post.
The Post reports that Durst received $65 million to “cut ties with his family” back in 2007.
