New York state police, after recently reopening a 19-year-old investigation into the disappearance of the wife of a prominent East Coast developer, were attempting to arrange an interview with author Susan Berman just before she was found shot to death in her Benedict Canyon home late last month. "We were interested in talking to her and we wanted to make it happen," said Westchester County Dist. Atty. Jeanine Pirro on Monday. "We were extremely disappointed when we heard what had happened."

Andrew Jarecki has identity issues: Wherever the entrepreneur-turned-filmmaker points his cameras, he unearths people acting as if they were someone else. In his Oscar-nominated debut, 2003's "Capturing the Friedmans," Jarecki examined a well-liked teacher leading a terrifying double life. He produced this year's "Catfish," a look at how people can concoct multiple Internet versions of their true selves. And now Jarecki has directed "All Good Things," a glimpse into a woman's unsolved disappearance ?

Los Angeles police are searching for clues in the killing of Susan Berman, an author and screenwriter whose work focused on the Las Vegas mob and her family connections to it. Berman, 55, who lived alone, was found dead in her rented two-bedroom house in Benedict Canyon on Christmas Eve by police after residents noticed a door left open and one of her dogs loose. She was found in her bedroom with a single gunshot to the head, Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Lt. Horace Frank said.

The first thing I turn to in the Thursday Times is Jonathan Gold's Counter Intelligence article. Do not , as suggested by Nile Young's letter, have him upgrade the places he reviews. The sleazier the better! It's the hole-in-the-wall restaurants that offer the most flavorful, most interesting food. Let those interested in the homogenized food of restaurant row go to the safe, trendy places in Beverly Hills. The rest of us will be very happy following Mr. Gold's lead, thank you. --SUSAN BERMAN Los Angeles

A New York real estate heir charged with the dismemberment murder of a 71-year-old neighbor in Galveston doesn't plan to fight extradition because he wants to return to Texas, his attorney said. Robert Durst is scheduled to appear in court in Northampton County, Pa., on Jan. 25 and is expected to waive his right to an extradition hearing. "Mr. Durst wants to come back to Texas. He's not guilty of murder, and he wants a trial," Houston lawyer Dick DeGuerin said.
