2:13 pm
melissa: a shocking confession of an alleged serial killer. hbo's "the jinx" stunning viewers in the final moments the miniseries chronicles the life of robert durst a wealthy real estate heir and his links to three different murders. listen to this chilling conclusion.
2:14 pm
kill them all, of course. melissa: whoa! durst was arrested in new orleans less than 24 hours before the finale was aired. he agreed to not fight extradition to go to l.a. to face murder charges. we have megyn kelly, host of the wildly popular, kelly file on fox news. megyn, this show, this case, so overwhelming. before i get to the money angles, our excuse for doing this on the show called "money." let me ask you about the legal angles. we listened to the confession, i put quotes, the confession. what is your reaction. >> it was chilling. just waiting to come on air from you, i saw update from the app you will be shocked to learn melissa, when he was arrested in new orleans, carrying a revolver. i'm sure totally innocent. i think durst is in a lot of trouble. even though he has been very
2:15 pm
slippery, managed to evade justice all this time, i think he is in a lot of trouble. i think the confession is bad and, damning. i am in the camp of it is going to be admitted, but there are real disagreements among lawyers already on that because, did he have expectation of privacy when he was in a bathroom which would normally -- melissa: a public bathroom. a public bathroom. he knew he was wearing a microphone. >> if you'reawaying a mic your expectation of privacy is gone. these are not government agents. his lawyers will argue that they were coordinating with the police and they crossed over into sort of being government agents. i think they will lose on that. they will argue this thing is more prejudicial than probative. in other words it is so prejudicial, no jury could ever give him a fair hearing if they heard this. but they're going to lose on that too. i say the tape comes in. his lawyers will be able to argue that it is not that meaningful. he was just sort of asking rhetorical questions musing,
2:16 pm
what will they say? they will say you killed them all of course. i don't think he is going to win. the thing really, so damning to him is the letter. melissa: much more so. >> we were talking -- before. melissa: we were. we were texting last night. we were both watching this with such fervor and loving it. i agree with you, i think the envelope, that is a million times more damning even than the confession. >> right. melissa: is there any way to talk about the chain of custody? or how do you poke holes in the letter part megyn? >> it will be very tough. they will have, just so the audience knows, he wrote a letter to one of the women that he allegedly killed before he killed her. the envelope writing is his, exactly. and the film-makers were the first to find this envelope in the course of their film making. the police never had it. when you see the writing on there, it is obviously his. the reason we know it is his we've seen his writing. film-makers got other writing. melissa: it matches the letter that was, matches the letter
2:17 pm
that was sent to the police that says -- >> that is the reason it is so damning to him. after that woman was killed, apparently durst this my opinion, couldn't help himself to write to letter to the police saying cadaver at her address. this envelope which durst admits only written by the woman's killer. match it up to the envelope when he was writing to the woman wound up dead it is identical. there will be dueling handwriting experts in the court to say it is his, it isn't his. you don't need an expert. that is his handwriting. he is finally caught. hopefully he never will be free again. melissa: this is my money question, megyn. at end of watching all these episodes, to me is the lesson if you're super loaded, because he has $65 million in his name. his family is, are billionaires many times over here in new york. he was separated from the family business and given $65 million essentially to go away. so i'm like, if you're super
2:18 pm
loaded can you get away with being a creepy serial killer? that is what it felt like i was wondering a the end of this? what do you think? >> yes. yes. his legal team made all the difference in the texas trial. he is alleged to have killed his wife. her body was never found and judge jeanine pirro who is with fox was the d.a. in westchester county. couldn't make the case. there was no body. very difficult case. then he goes down to texas and allegedly kills somebody else. that he admits he did but claimed it was in self-defense. the only reason he got out of that murder charge is because he had a very talented legal team. quite frankly with all due respect, and i only saw what i saw on the documentary, the prosecution team was not that impressive. melissa: yeah. >> it made all the difference for him. everybody deserves great legal representtation. those lawyers were, you know extremely wiley. yeah, his money made all the
2:19 pm
difference. you need money if you're going to be a serial killer. melissa: exactly. we'll see if he gets away with it again or if this time his luck has finally run out. megyn kelly, thank you very much. we're not sure if you heard of megyn's i will upstart program on the sister network. it is called, "the kelly file," 9:00 p.m. on fox news channel at 9:00 p.m. everyone else is. if you're not watching you're literally the only one. thank you make begin. biggest and brightest are in austin for south by southwest. we're live on the ground with exclusive interview with one of youtube's biggest stars. rise of the robots take as new turn. why they thought it was a good idea to come up with a fire-breathing drone. do you ever have too much money or robo dragons. ♪
