Linda Walker Zevallos wasn't that attracted to Robert Durst, and she told People she thinks that might have saved her life.

"I just had had enough," she said. "It was too weird. I just sensed there was something wrong with the guy."

Zevallos ended her relationship with Durst after six months; a relationship in which Durst lied by telling her he was a labor lawyer with two daughters in Harvard. Durst also told her his friend's wife went missing, instead of his wife Kathleen.
