None of Robert Durst's Defense Team Witnesses Showed Up

Well, um, that was awkward. Troubled real estate mogul and all-around weird dude Robert Durst was back in court this week for what was supposed to be a preliminary hearing to determine where Durst's actual court case would be held — either Louisiana or California. The only problem was that every single FBI agent, state trooper, and (former) NY District Attorney the defense called to the stand as witnesses were nowhere to be found. Both the FBI agents and state troopers are pivotal to the defense's case that the two illegally searched Durst's hotel room. That lone former NY DA? He was involved in the investigation of Kathleen McCormack's disappearance. McCormack was Durst's first wife and went missing in 1982. She has yet to be found. Jeanine Pirro, who as you'll recall was not Durst's favorite person in the world, may soon take the stand, as Durst's lawyer Dick DeGuerin has filed a request to subpoena her as well as the aforementioned witnesses. Durst is due back in court next Thursday, April 9.
