7:02 am
saturday charged with murder. with the help of the hbo documentary "the jinx." abc has the latest. >> for years police investigated robert durst in the murder of husband long time friend but now in the documentary about him, "the jinx," he may have jinksed himself with what appears to be a confession. >> there it is. >> overnight a dramatic moment captured when robert durst suspected in three murders apparently thought the cameras weren't rolling. >> killed them all. of course. >> this shocking finale of hbo's documentary series "the jinx" airing in the midst of a bombshell off camera too. arrested for the 2000 shooting death of his friend. the 71-year-old was apprehended at this new orleans hotel saturday where he was registered
7:03 am
under a fake name. paid in cash and was in possession of fake documents. the fbi thinks he was trying to flee to cuba. this morning the lapd is crediting additional evidence that has come to light in the past year. and no doubt, "the jinx" provided those incriminating clues. >> did not tell the whole truth. nobody tells the whole truth. >> this six-part series profiling not just berman's death but the unsolved disappearance of his first wife kathy in 1982 and the death of his neighbor in texas in 2001. durst acquitted after claiming self-defense. he sat down for hours of interviews for the documentary adamantly denying he killed anyone. it was two years after the taping that the director realized he had made the off camera comments killed them all. but the real smoking gun some say, this never before seen letter given to the jinks producers by berman's stepson
7:04 am
who says he sent it to her a year before her death. and durst admitting it is similar to a note sent to police when berman died telling them where to find the body. >> same misspelling. the writing looks similar and the spelling is the same. >> it wasn't until the cameras stopped rolling that he appeared to crack. durst officially denies killing berman but authorities have believed he had a motive. allegedly wanting to silence her about the disappearance of his wife. this morning even durst's long estranged brother who runs the family's multibillion dollar real estate empire telling abc news we hope he will finally be held accountable for all he has done. he appeared briefly in court and held without bond. his lawyer says he will agree to go to los angeles to face charges. as for why he was in new orleans with fake documents his lawyer says he wasn't running but
7:05 am
seeking privacy. >> so many questions. let's bring dan abe rams right now. first thing you say is wow. >> this doesn't happen in real life. the idea you're doing a documentary and then at the end of the documentary you get what sounds like a confession. >> off camera. >> off camera to an unsolved case involving a high profile guy. i mean you know you wouldn't believe this if it were a fictionalized movie. >> will that apparent confession be admissible in court? >> i think it's likely. the only legal question will be the sanctity of that tape. who had control of it? is it accurate. those are the sorts of questions that will be asked. no doubt his defense team will try to get it excluded from evidence but i think it will be tough. you're in the middle of doing a tv interview. no expectation of privacy. >> the timeline is going to be key. when was this tape discovered and turned over to authorities? >> because the defense is going to want to put both on trial and
7:06 am
want to put the police on trial and try to create the scenario where together they worked that this idea that the police in conjunction with their team worked to bring down robert durst and they're going to challenge the timing of when things came out. he gets arrested the day above the finale of the hbo documentary. so those are the sorts of questions you're going to hear not just from the public but from the defense. >> and we're going to post some of them in the next half hour. one thing that could be raised by the tape is durst clearly uncomfortable. seems to be talking to himself. could this lay the ground work for an insanity defense? >> it could. i think he's going to say is the same sorts of things like before. come on i was testing them. of course i knew i was still miked up. i knew that. you know i didn't mean any of
7:07 am
it. i was just saying it to see how they would respond. or something like that. i mean that's what i would expect not an insanity defense. >> thank you so much. >> we want to hear what he has to say. to the wild weather all over the country. record heat and flooding along the ohio river. look at the pictures in cincinnati. the water slides surrounded by water and where the parking lot was. we are along the ohio river this morning. good morning, rob. >> reporter: across the river you can see the city of cincinnati. it was just two weeks ago where part of this river valley had two feet of snow. offadd you had armt and two inches of water and you get flooding. across the midwest the winter whiteout melting away relaced with a new concern dangerous
7:08 am

7:09 am
and roads and buildings like this one will be cut off for much of this week. >> we know you will be covering it and so will we. we're also covering the pacific northwest. listen to what happened out there. that is scaffolding falling in downtown portland oregon after 58 mile per hour wind gusts and 92 mile purr her wind gusts came on through. record rainfalls for the day and today much drier and milder. portland, 6 6. redding 65. it was a headliny weekend. i just made a word in los angeles. third day of record heat. 92. that's the l.a. marathon. they started it early because they didn't want people to be affected by that. two degrees shy of a record in l.a. and las vegas. denver and kansas city and oh omaha can see 70s and 80.

chicago 73 today and 50 by wednesday. return to more winter like feel because we don't start spring for a couple days. >> we're going to move to ferguson where a suspect is in custody in the shooting of two police officers during a protest last week. police say ferguson residents helped them track him down and abc's steve osunsami has the latest in clayton, missouri. good morning, steve. >> reporter: police say families were calling that information in. the accused gunman being held here was already wanted at the time of the shooting for failing to meet with his probation officer. this morning missouri police say this is the young man who gunned down two of their own. 20-year-old jeffrey williams accused of shooting two officers doing their jobs outside ferguson police head quarters thursday. >> he is charged with two counts of assault. >> the prosecutor said they recovered a gun that belongs to williams and it's a match.
7:11 am
>> the weapon recovered certainly matches the shell casings that were recovered at the scene. >> police say he admits he fired his gun from a vehicle nearby and also say he's claiming that he wasn't aiming at police. he was instead firing at someone on the street following a disagreement earlier in the evening. >> regardless of who may be an intended target you hit somebody that's still a class a felony and punishable by life in prison. >> the two officers are home recovering with their families but they could have been killed. one was shot in the face. the bullet lodged near his year. the other shot in the shoulder with the bullet exiting his back. u.s. attorney general eric holder whose review of the police work led to the protest that night had some choice words for the accused shooter. >> this was punk punk who was trying to show discord in an area trying to get its act together. >> in november ferguson burned

7:13 am
to not be seen in ten days was highly unusual. was he ill? was he dead? did he have a new baby? there was a website with the clock updating down to the second how long he had been out of site. the kremlin denied anything wrong saying he is as strong as ever and putin said this morning to the rumors of his disappearance it would be boring without gossip. >> that's for sure. thanks. we're going to turn to poll sicks nond and the fallout from the hillary clinton controversy. john boehner is announcing a new investigation into clinton's new use of private e-mails. abc's john karl is at the white house. this would be separate from the committee investigating the attack in benghazi. >> this would be a separate investigation conducted by a separate committee looking into her unusual e-mail practices as secretary of state and it would certainly mean a protracted legal battle over access to the server she had in her house
7:14 am
where she ran her e-mails. she has made it clear she does not belief the government has a right to that. republicans will push for access. she will be asked to testify not once but twice before congress once on the e-mails, a second time on benghazi in other words, you could have more appearances before congress from her during her primary campaign than you have presidential debates. >> it's going on for some time and the president making jokes about it over the weekend. >> he joked he used to be seen as the tech savvy candidate in 2008 and he said hillary has a seer in your house, i didn't know you could have one of those. he said if he would have known that he would have gotten one himself. >> let's go to amy with the top stories. a big man hunt overnight. >> the gunman who shot two police officers driving through a south los angeles neighborhood. the officers were inside an unmarked car.

than 30 years and the cold case was brought back to life by the hbo documentary "the jinx" which ended with this stunning off camera confession. >> here it is. . you're right, ofnlgt of course. but you can't imagine. arrest him. what the hell did i do? killed them all, of course. >> and we are joined now by the filmmaker. welcome back. you said it would be clear at the end of six episodes. i guess you were right. >> i tried to be. >> so let's walk through this
7:32 am
because there's a lot of questions raised about the timeline in this tape. the interview was three years ago? >> about three years ago, yeah. we interviewed him twice and the first time right around the time the movie came out and it took us another year and a half to get him for the follow up interview. >> you showed him the evidence and it was the handwriting that seemed to stun him and he goes into the bathroom. you didn't discover what was on tape in the bathroom for more than two years? >> yeah. >> how is that possible? >> well the fact is it's a small documentary crew and we were working very hard and it wasn't until later when we brought on some more editors and had the time to go through the material and we said to one of the editors go through all the old material that just has audio because the only time you look at stuff is if it has video and audio. one of the editors came back and said i think i found something. >> what did you do when you heard it?
7:33 am
>> i sat there with my partners and we sort of shook our heads. it took a while to understand the impact of it. just it was so chilling to hear it. it was doesisturbing to hear it and uncomfortable to hear it. >> once you hear it you have a legal and moral obligation to go to the authorities. when did that happen? >> we talked about it with our legal advisors and said if we go to the authorities now, we're missing the opportunity for us to actually get the real story from him and it may take years for them to do that. truth is as filmmakers we have the freedom to do things that law enforcement wouldn't have. but at the same time we didn't want to hold it back if it was going to take forever. all we could do is get him into the chair which took a lot of work. then when we had his reaction that was when we felt the time was right for us to show that to them and that was many many months ago. >> you're talking about the
7:34 am
letters. >> sure. >> what about the audio of him in the bathroom? >> well we have been in contact with law enforcement for the past two years. so when we finally found that subsequent admission what happens in the bathroom we contacted them and said we have something more. >> you have already heard robert durst talking to the l.a. times overnight saying this is not a coincidence here. what happens is that durst gets arrested on the eve of the finale. kind of a ratings play. were there any kinds of deals over the timing of the arrest? >> of course. not. we don't have that kind of power and we had no idea of the arrest timing. i was nervous about it and on the phone with our law enforcement about 4:00 in the morning two nights before and i was saying i'm uncomfortable and i have security i've never had security in my life. my family is uncomfortable and i feel this arrest should be made but understand you need to do what you need to do. but tell me where we are. i didn't get any color on it. >> so you interviewed durst
7:35 am
three years ago. he must know the noose is starting to tighten around him. did he try to contact you? >> he never calls me the day after the interview. usually he goes away and tells me he's in madrid. disappears. we talk again a few weeks later. in this case he called me the day after the interview, after i showed him the envelope and he acted as if it was no big deal. he called me and said i have three or four things to talk to you about. i knew the first thing was going to be nothing and nothing and the third thing was going to be him checking in with me about whether i thought that admission was important. >> so he knew something was coming which is why he may have been trying to escape? >> i will say i don't know he told his lawyers about the second interview because they didn't attend. that was his choice. his lawyer came to the first interview and a couple years later he decides to do a second interview freelancing by
7:36 am
himself. >> thanks very much. over to robin. >> to the amazing sight at the racetrack. look at the speeding dragster actually split right in two and goes airborne as you can see. the drive walked away and telling his survival story. abc has the story. >> reporter: this morning an investigation into what caused this jaw-dropping racing accident. >> whoa! hold on! >> a dragster snapping in half and breaking into pieces and almost 300 miles per hour at a national hot rod association race in florida. miraculously the driver walks away unhurt. >> i got maybe 100 feet before the finish line and that's when the front end failed. it flew off the car and i'm traveling through the air and hoping that i stay on the race track when i finally come down. >> take a look again as the 2,000 plus car breaks into
7:37 am
pieces. that's the front buckling and flying off. dickson inside the cockpit launched more than 20 feet into the air and smashing into the concrete wall. >> every once in a while bad things happen but i have all the faith in my equipment. >> the driver survived a nearly identical accident in 2000. >> oh there goes dickson. >> dickson was seriously hurt in that accident. so what was different this time? he says important safety improvements. >> i feel safer in that race car than i do driving to the racetrack. because of my head and neck restraint, because of my helmet because of the cage that i'm surrounded in. so when you have a bad day at the office you could dust yourself off and
