The Lost Wife of Robert Durst cast is already being buzzed about before the highly anticipated movie airs on Lifetime tonight! Tune in to find out all of the juicy details surrounding the mysterious disappearance of Robert Durst’s first wife, Kathleen McCormack, that took place back in 1982. Lifetime’s adaption of the story has people intrigued and we’ve got the scoop on the main cast, as well as trailers, right here!
Who is Robert Durst?
Over the years, many of us have heard the name Robert Durst uttered sporadically in the news for various reasons, at one point or another. Most recently, the former real estate mogul and investor was put on trial for the alleged murder of his close friend, Susan Berman. The brutal alleged murder took place in 2000, but due to extenuating circumstances and the slow legal processes involved, the preliminary hearing for this trial was scheduled to take place on October 17, 2017. However, the trial date had to be postponed until April 16, 2018, due to the destructive effects that Hurricane Harvey had on the homes of the members of Durst’s legal team. Throughout his life, Durst has been linked to one other murder, as well as the mysterious and unsolved disappearance of his wife, Kathleen McCormack, also known as Kathie. The latter case is perhaps the least known and least remembered of the three, as it took place more than 30 years ago. It has largely been overshadowed by the more recent and prevalent murder allegations posed against Durst. Recently, however, the Lifetime Network decided to remind people of this tragic and unsolved case by turning it into a Lifetime movie, entitled The Lost Wife of Robert Durst, which features a mix of an all-star and up-and-coming cast. Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about the The Lost Wife of Robert Durst cast before it premieres tonight, on Sunday, November 4, at 8:00 p.m. EST.
According to the trailer, Kathie McCormack had been missing for 5 whole days before her husband reported her disappearance to the police. Despite the best efforts of Kathie’s sisters and other family members, this case still remains unsolved and to this day, no one knows what really happened to her. Over 30 years and multiple attempted lawsuits later, the McCormack family is now requesting that Kathie be legally declared deceased as, sadly there seems to be no evidence to prove the contrary.
