Robert Durst revealed that he was on methamphetamines during his interview with HBO’s true crime doc series The Jinx.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Durst  revealed to L.A. prosecutors that he was high on meth “the whole time” during the interviews.

The New York real estate heir confessed this during a three-hour interview after his arrest on March 14, 2015. The court papers were released this Friday. 

Durst was arrested when a .38-caliber revolver was found in his New Orleans hotel. At the interview with prosecutors, Durst revealed that he “was swooped, speeding.”

“I was on meth, I was on meth the whole time,” said Durst, 72, according to a transcript obtained by the Times. “And, when I looked at the little pieces of it… it should have been obvious.”

The revelations come as Durst awaits what is expected to be a sensational murder trial, with prosecutors accusing him in the 2000 murder of his friend and writer Susan Berman.
