Witnesses at the scene said several bodies could be seen on the ground after the horror crash. Family have identified Erin and Shane McGowan, who only just walked down the aisle in June, as two of the victims who were in the vehicle.

We have several units investigating. Douglas Durst, a onetime hippie who had sought a career in international diplomacy, had just taken the reins of one of the most powerful family-owned real estate companies in New York City. They have pioneered the development of environmentally sustainable office buildings, and they have built residential towers. They erected 4 Times Square, a skyscraper that helped prompt the rejuvenation of its neighborhood, and bought a stake in the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, 1 World Trade Center.
But even as the family celebrates the founding of the Durst Organization years ago by its patriarch, Joseph Durst, Robert casts a long, dark shadow. Now 72 and frail, Mr. Durst is scheduled to be in court in New Orleans on Dec. Sometime next summer he will be transferred to Los Angeles, where he has been accused of murdering a former confidante, Susan Berman, who was found shot in the back of her head at her home on Dec. Prosecutors say Mr. Durst wanted to ensure that Ms. Berman would not reveal what she knew about the abrupt disappearance of his first wife, Kathleen Durst, in In another case riddled with bizarre twists, Mr.
A jury acquitted him of murder in Of his brother, with whom he has had a tempestuous relationship since they were boys, Douglas would say very little.

The projects include the story Via 57, whose dramatic, pyramidal shape stands out on the Hudson River waterfront, and Halletts Point , a sprawling, seven-building, 2,unit complex on the East River in Queens. As a builder, the Durst company keeps a relatively modest profile.
The family has not put its name in tall gold letters on a museum, a hospital or a university building. He had no connections and spoke no English. No Unnecessary Expenses. Just Plain, Solid Merchandise. That year, he expanded into real estate, buying his first building, at 1 West 34th Street. He also ventured into banking, helping to found Capital National Bank, which made loans in the garment district. The bank was later sold, providing Joseph the money he needed to lay the foundation for a real-estate dynasty.
The Durst Organization was not a developer — erecting buildings from the ground up — until the second generation, when the brothers Seymour, Royal and David moved into the business after World War II. Seymour always took the subway. A slight man who spoke slowly, cigar at the ready, he had a knack for assembling adjoining parcels, sometimes dozens of them, for new projects.
It was a job that required patience and bargaining skills. Seymour and his brothers built four office towers on Third Avenue, which became a desirable commercial market after the elevated subway came down. In the s, Seymour turned his attention to Times Square, then a seedy neighborhood where land was cheap. He had a grand vision of building a new Rockefeller Center comprising 10 towers west of Avenue of the Americas, between 42nd and 47th Streets. Gural said. Seymour gained control of most of the land, but by December his dream had been undone by a recession and overbuilding.
She comments that she would not run out crying the next day if they slept together, presumably a reference to Don's previous secretary, Allison, who left SCDP in tears following Don's cold treatment of her after their one-night stand.
In the Season 4 finale , Don hires Megan to babysit his children on a trip to California, when his planned childcare falls through at the last moment. Although Don has been dating Faye Miller, SCDP's marketing research consultant, for months, he proposes marriage to Megan upon returning from the California trip, and she accepts. Don promotes her to copywriter soon after their engagement announcement at SCDP.
Megan, originally from Montreal , is bilingual in English and French. She is intelligent and capable, but moody and combative as well; as her own mother tells her, she has the "artistic temperament".
She originally wanted to be an actress, and in Season 5, she quits her copywriting job at SCDP to pursue acting again and quickly lands her first acting job, with Don's intervention, in a commercial for Butler Shoes in the Season 5 finale. She is 26 at the time of her marriage to Don, who turns 40 seven months after the wedding.
Between seasons, Don appears to have fully disclosed his personal secrets to Megan, as she is aware of his former identity and Dick Whitman's birth date, and knows about Anna. She admits to Sylvia Rosen that she had become pregnant while in Hawaii with Don and was relieved when she miscarried, as she had contemplated her options, as a pregnancy would have disrupted her emerging acting career. Megan later reveals to Don that she had been pregnant and miscarried.
Near the end of Season 6, Don, who is obsessed with their neighbor Sylvia Rosen, unbeknownst to Megan and Sylvia's husband, Arnie Rosen, barely communicates with Megan. Marie suggests Megan dress less like a wife for a business dinner Don has invited Megan to, which attracts Don's amorous attention that night, but ultimately he practically ignores her, and she, believing he is simply working and drinking too much, tells him things must change.
In the Season 6 finale, Don tells Megan they are moving together to California, and she quits her soap opera job, eagerly anticipating pursuing acting opportunities on the West Coast. However, later that same day, Don tells her they are not moving. Angered, Megan leaves the apartment. It is also implied that Megan's own career is not going well; she is having difficulty securing roles, and at one point, she bombs an audition and then tracks down the director to tearfully demand a second chance.
Megan ends her marriage with Don, who had finally decided to move to Los Angeles, over the phone midway through the Season 7 episode "Waterloo".
Bitter and angry, Megan berates Don for "ruining her life" but accepts the money. Megan is not seen again after this episode. He first sees Betty when she is six months pregnant at the Sterlings' Kentucky Derby party, and is instantly drawn to her. Later, Betty uses a political pretext to call him to ask if he can use his influence to save a local reservoir, and they quickly develop a deeper connection. Betty reciprocates Henry's attention because she increasingly feels no connection with Don due to his non-stop infidelities, lies over his true identity, and his sometimes verbally abusive attitude towards her.
After Betty's beloved father dies, the much older Henry also serves as a father figure for her. Henry and Betty have only a few brief and furtive meetings before Henry proposes marriage in the wake of the Kennedy assassination. Season 3 ends with the two of them on a plane with baby Gene, flying to Reno so Betty can obtain a quick divorce from Don. At the start of Season 4, we see that Henry and Betty have married and Henry has rather uncomfortably taken up residence in the Drapers' house, living with Betty and her three children and initially paying no rent to Don.
He tries to soothe Betty as she continues to react angrily to Don and his irresponsibility towards the children, but he becomes more frustrated with her over time.
A gunman killed his brother. Now Farris Barakat is on an American journey.
Betty, on her part, feels unaccepted by Henry's family, especially when she is unable to control Sally during a family visit to the home of Henry's mother Pauline , and in the face of Pauline's not-so-veiled scorn of Betty. During this time, Henry is concerned by Betty's continued anger towards Don, and he wonders aloud if they rushed into their marriage too quickly.
By Season 5, Betty has gained a large amount of weight, but Henry tells her she's beautiful. Her relationship with Henry seems affectionate and Henry seems to love her unconditionally. In the Season 6 premiere , when Betty dyes her hair black, to her children's dismay, Henry says she looks like Elizabeth Taylor. Betty supports, and seems rejuvenated by, Henry's decision to run for office in Season 6, and after he admiringly tells the overweight, brunette Betty that during his campaign people will "really see" her, she rapidly regains her former svelte figure and blonde hairdo.
Henry is a solid, mature, and responsible presence in her life, but he also has very traditional views of women, and they have an argument when Betty, at a political fundraiser, does not parrot Henry's political position. During the final season, Henry takes Betty's diagnosis of terminal lung cancer very hard, and in typical fashion is full of energy to fight it. But Betty refuses to do so, just as she refuses to quit smoking or to quit her plans of studying psychology at a university as long as she is physically able. Against her wishes, Henry drives up to see Sally at school to tell her about the diagnosis and to ask her to help him to convince her mother to do chemotherapy.
As he talks to Sally, he breaks down crying. As her illness progresses, Betty makes it known that her wish is for Sally, Bobby and Gene to be raised by her brother William and his wife Judy after her death, rather than by Henry or Don, although Sally feels that Henry is the best person to parent her little brothers after their mother is gone.
Stan Rizzo Jay R. Johnson 's presidential campaign. In the beginning of his tenure, he and Peggy are often at odds with each other due to his abrasive and sometimes macho attitude, but the two develop a strong working relationship after Stan tries to intimidate Peggy by suggesting they work in the nude; Peggy calls his bluff and strips down, prompting Stan to concede victory to her.
Stan is one of the few members of the SCDP creative department who survives the staff cuts. By Season 5 the two are working well together, until the firm hires Michael Ginsberg, whose bombastic and somewhat sexist attitude is more in line with Stan's than Peggy's. Peggy's boss Ted Chaough overhears one such conversation, and Peggy relates Stan's news that Heinz ketchup is considering meetings; Chaough takes advantage of this and pressures Peggy to pitch a CGC campaign. Although neither firm ultimately wins the account, a betrayed Stan gives Peggy the finger at a bar.
Feelgood" to boost creativity and spends an entire weekend intoxicated. During this time, he comes on to Peggy, who gently rejects him, and to whom reveals that his first cousin recently died in Vietnam. Peggy counsels him that loss cannot be dealt with by getting high and having sex. While Stan initially takes her advice, he is later discovered in flagrante delicto with Wendy Gleason, the hippie daughter of a recently deceased partner.
Several episodes later in "Favors", Peggy telephones Stan in the middle of the night, waking him up, to plead for his assistance with a rat in her apartment.
When he refuses, she teasingly offers to "make it worth his while," but he still refuses, as he is currently in bed with a nude sleeping woman. The camera also reveals a large poster of Moshe Dayan over Stan's bed. Stan approaches Don, requesting permission to go to California and start a fledgling branch of the firm. Don warns him that it would basically mean demotion and work on only one account, but Stan is adamant. Don is inspired by the idea, and instead of allowing Stan to go, proposes to the partners that he himself go to start the branch.
Stan is infuriated by what he perceives as a betrayal on Don's part, although Don offers to let Stan come to California in a few months. During the final episode , after SCDP has been absorbed back into McCann, Stan and Peggy acknowledge their hitherto unspoken feelings for one-another, and Stan urges Peggy not to pursue Joan's offer to join her new agency, but rather remain at McCann with him.
