Prosecutors say Durst murdered his best friend to cover his tracks for killing another woman: His wife.

Prosecutors say Durst murdered his best friend to cover his tracks for killing another woman: His wife.


A preliminary hearing to determine whether Durst will stand trial in his best friend's murder begins today.

As Los Angeles County prosecutors pieced together their murder case against Robert Durst — the eccentric New York real estate scion accused of murdering his best friend Susan Berman in 2000 — they followed a path that led to the opposite coast and decades into the past.

Children's Hospital Los Angeles

Last year, Gabby, 13, began to feel pain in her left knee. A month later, she was walking with a noticeable limp. After a visit to their local pediatrician, Gabby’s mom received a call to let them know to head to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles immediately. It was here at CHLA where they found out the result of her pain: aggressive, metastatic, osteosarcoma or also known as bone cancer.

Since her diagnosis, Gabby has spent many days in the hospital receiving chemotherapy or treatments to help the side effects of chemotherapy. There were many bad days with pain and nausea, but a therapy dog visit changed that around.

“The dog jumped up on her bed and in that second, all her pain and nausea was forgotten about,” says Kristi, Gabby’s mom. “All she was focused on was the dog.”

Gabby has always been a huge dog lover and to be able to receive this kind of comfort from the Amerman Family Foundation Dog Therapy Program makes a big impact while she’s in the hospital. For instance, Camper, a Golden Retriever, was present when Gabby’s nerve blocks needed to be removed; She barely flinched.

Gabby has met 38 out of 125 therapy dogs since she started her journey here at CHLA. That number grew to 81 when Gabby participated in our Dog Therapy Appreciation Day this past Wednesday. There were 43 dogs present with their owners to help celebrate three consecutive years of therapy dogs on duty every day at CHLA.

“On average, we have five dogs a day visiting and an average of 1,155 patients get a personalized one-on-one therapy dog encounter every month,” says Kate Buhrmaster, program manager of the Dog Therapy Program.

The work that our fur and human volunteers put in each day at CHLA is unmeasurable. Thank you to all of Dog Therapy for providing joy, comfort and distraction for families and patients like Gabby!

Going to get my two dogs trained through Pet Partners. I already started the volunteer process. I think this would be a great area to volunteer at CHLA. I have seen first hand through my daughter Sarah, the joy it brings when a dog comes and visits.

The therapy dogs at CHLA are priceless!! Truly brought sunshine to our son's treatment stays. He battled osteosarcoma as well. Prayers on their way for you Gabby!!!!

His handler said that he stopped at my daughter’s door. My daughter was missing her dog at the time. The visit with Simba made her day.

Our poodle Milo met Gabby last week at Dog Therapy Appreciation Day! So happy to be one of her 81!🐩🐩❤️

Blondie paid her a visit as well.

That's awesome. My son has 40 dog cards from his stay. He got out of there healthy and hopefully it's only check ups for life and no return of the tumor. God bless chla

They are also great at reminding parents to be parents. When Pierce was diagnosed with Leukemia, I forgot how to be a mom. I forgot how to play. The entire 4th floor child life staff reminded me everyday how to be the mom I wanted to be.

Omg Maggie & Jessica !! You guys help make 5 east the amazing unit it is! Always making such an impact in the lives of the patients and families (& nurses) Love you both lots!

Child life is so important and I can’t even explain how much we love these two lady’s ! It’s nice to have people beside myself and husband for Kaylin to feel like she can trust and talk with...and these ladies have helped not only her but us parents during difficult times !! ❤️

They saved my 3 year olds life when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor ♥️. They are truly the best.

This is a wonderful ad that makes me so sad that I’m not still practicing as a CCLS. Thank you for your efforts - as misunderstood and under-appreciated as they may be, I hope you never forget how much YOU matter to the families.

These people are GREAT ! ! ! No matter the problem they are on it..Our Grand Daughter Indomitable Iris -our Tiny Warrior's Battle with Biliary ,she is 2 years and 7 months now coming up on ONE year post Liver Transplant from a living donor her Aunt Tiana. Back when I started donating Platelets, I am now at over 35 gallons I never knew it would some day come back to save our Grand Daughters life. Keep up all the great work you do. (iris says thanks also).

Jackie on the 6th floor is the most amazing person. She made my daughter's stay so much easier. I'm not sure what we would of done without her. From helping with IV, blood draws,meds to explaining what it was gonna be like when she had her 5 hour MRI and how it would to be to put to sleep. I owe her. She has the best heart.

CHLA wouldn’t be the same without its incredible, compassionate Child Life team. Thank you!
