Robert Durst, the disgraced scion of a real estate dynasty, is expected to stand trial for the execution-style murder of Susan Berman in 2000, and currently is being held without bail in New Orleans for possession of a weapon. On top of all of this, he may be linked to the unresolved disappearance of a college student in 1971.
Durst ran a health food store call “All Good Things” (ironically named, given the turn his life would take) in Middelbury, Vermont. Shortly before her disappearance, a Freshman at Middlebury College, Lynne Schulze 18, was seen eating dried prunes purchased at the store close to the premises. It isn’t known whether she had a personal connection with Durst or not. According to the Mail, Middelbury police said, “We have been aware of this connection for the past several years and have been working with various outside agencies was we follow this lead.”
