Seems like Robert Durst almost, ALMOST returned to Dallas to live AFTER he was acquitted for murder in Galveston. CandysDirt has learned that Robert Durst called inquiring to rent another space at the Centrum AFTER he had been living in Galveston. In fact, he may have lied to the police in Galveston, telling them he still lived at the Centrum.

Durst called and asked if there was space available to lease. At the time, there was not. Guess he really liked Dallas.

All this and more will be the subject of a long, detailed  interview tomorrow morning on NBC-TV’s the TODAY Show in New York City. Producers from the show contacted Ebby Halliday agent Linda Walker Zevallos, and then myself, after seeing our blog posts on Durst’s life in Dallas. Particularly, his “courting” of Ebby real estate agent Linda Zavallos. Producer Curtis Vogel and correspondent Stephanie Gosk then flew to Dallas — Gosk was in New Orleans, where she is covering the story. She tells me Durst may remain in New Orleans for months.

This morning, Vogel, Gosk and a film crew visited Linda at her parents’ home, where she is caring for her mother, near Alvarado. This afternoon we met in front of the Centrum, did a quick interview, and then the crew concluded an in-depth interview with Linda at Eatzies on Oak Lawn, where Linda and Robert Durst had a lunch date back in 2000. Late today they interviewed her son, Michael, who was 13 when Durst courted his mom. Michael’s interview took place at the Warwick Hotel. And actually may be going on right now, still. The show airs tomorrow morning at 7:00 a.m., which we can hardly wait to see. And there’s a teaser tonight on KXAS 5. Expect Linda to tell us how interested Robert Durst was in her… thank God, she was smart enough to have no interest in him.
