Billionaire Robert Durst has been viewed with suspicion since his wife’s disappearance in 1982. His bizarre life – which has seen various brushes with the law – was even the subject of the HBO documentary The Jinx. However, five years after allegedly confessing his crimes on camera, he’s finally standing trial for murder.

Now, Robert was born to a wealthy New York family on April 12, 1943. And his grandfather, Joseph Durst, was an Austro-Hungarian immigrant who arrived in the United States in 1902 and set up the Durst Organization. The business was incredibly successful and remains one of New York City’s oldest family-run real estate companies.
