NEW ORLEANS - Robert Durst, a wealthy real estate heir and subject of a six-part HBO documentary on unsolved crimes was arrested on Saturday in New Orleans on a murder warrant.

The FBI says Durst was wanted in Los Angeles in 2000 involving the murder of a close friend, Susan Berman. Detectives say Berman was killed 15 years ago as detectives were about to question her about the dissapearance of Durst's wife in 1982. Durst has also been the subject of questioning in the shooting and dismemberment of a Texas neighbor in 2001.

The final episode of "The Jinx," the documentary about Durst, is scheduled to air Sunday night.

Durst, 71, is held without bond in Orleans Parish Prison.
