In yet another surreal moment in a case replete with crazy twists, Deputy District Attorney John Lewin told the court on Thursday that he accompanied the defendant Robert Durst to the bathroom to assist him by emptying his catheter bag. We take this peculiar event as an opportunity to offer a timeline of Durst’s various reported maladies and to present as comprehensive an assessment of his current health status as publicly available information allows. 

Material for the Bob’s Own Words section was assembled from:
