Real estate heir and suspected murder Robert Durst had a lot of explaining to do following the release of the 2015 HBO documentary, “The Jinx,” where he appears to admit to killing multiple people. Now, a year later, we’ve got his explanation — he was high on methamphetamine while filming.

Durst admitted to using drugs while appearing in the documentary back in March of 2015, during an interview in prison. Those comments have not been filed in L.A. County Superior Court, according to Variety.

“I was on meth, I was on meth the whole time … it should have been obvious,” Durst said.

Durst recently pleaded not guilty to murder charges for the death of onetime friend Susan Berman. He is also allegedly linked to the deaths of his first wife and his neighbor in Texas — who he admitted to killing in self-defense. He was arrested on gun charges in Louisiana following the release of the “The Jinx.” [Variety] Christopher Cameron
