MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) - Relatives of the missing wife of millionaire real estate heir Robert Durst have filed a $100 million lawsuit blaming him in her presumed death.

Kathleen McCormack Durst vanished in 1982.

The New York Times reported Monday the missing woman's mother and three sisters sued Durst on Monday in Mineola, New York.

The suit contends Durst murdered Kathleen Durst. Her body has never been found. The lawsuit also blames Durst for preventing the family from providing her with a dignified burial.

Durst's lawyer, Dick DeGuerin, said there is no evidence Durst was involved in her disappearance.

The 72-year-old Durst was charged earlier this year with the death of his friend Susan Berman after mumbling that he "killed them all" in an HBO documentary. His lawyer says Durst did not kill Berman.
