As investigators sift through items seized in a search of Robert Durst's Houston home, the troubled millionaire's attorney says he would be surprised if any evidence against his client were found.

Dick DeGuerin called the search of the condominium Tuesday "a publicity stunt" by a California prosecutor looking to pin the 15-year-old slaying of a former Durst confidante on his client.

The 71-year-old heir to a New York real estate fortune remains in custody in New Orleans after his weekend arrest, which came shortly before the finale of an HBO series about his links to the slaying of three people, including Susan Berman, in whose death he's charged.

Durst has been suspected but never charged in the disappearance of his first wife. He was acquitted of murder in Texas in 2003.
