Disappearance of Robert Durst’s Wife

It all started when on a tragic day in 1982, Robert’s wife vanished. No one knows where she disappeared. After the investigation started, the neighbors of Durst told the investigator about an unusual incident where the wife of Durst, Kathie Durst had to leave her house in her night pajamas. She ran to neighbor’s house, begging to save her from her cruel husband (Robert Durst). Neighbors cleared that Kathie revealed about her husband torturing and beating her for her part in the property. Kathie had to sit in the bathroom for several hours to protect herself from psychotic Robert Durst. Finally, she disappeared and never came back. Of course, Robert is the suspect of allegedly murdering his wife. But he has never been charged for this alleged disappearance.
