Associated Press Issues Fantastic Correction For Saying Accused Murderer Robert Durst Was A Member Of Limp Bizkit

Real estate heir Robert Durst‘s hot-mike comment about “killing them all” led to his arrest and reignited interest in one of the more salacious murder mysteries in modern American history.

The news sent millions scrambling to Google and a vast majority of those people to realize he shares a surname with Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst.

The California chapter of the Associated Press had the unfortunate pleasure of confusing the two in a story sent across the wire yesterday, leading to an epic correction.

In the second item of the California 10th NewsMinute sent March 16 to users of the state broadcast wire, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Robert Durst is a member of a band. He is a real estate heir; Fred Durst is the former frontman of Limp Bizkit.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) – A Louisiana State Police trooper says millionaire Robert Durst has been booked on weapons charges in that state – on top of a first-degree murder charge lodged by Los Angeles authorities. Trooper Melissa Matey told the Associated Press that an arrest warrant was issued for the real estate heir and he was rebooked in the Orleans Parish Jail on Monday under two new charges.

And just like that, the “I did it for the nookie” defense is rendered useless.
