PAUL & MAGGIE MURDAUGH: South Carolina vs. Alex Murdaugh for Double Homicide of wife & son *GUILTY*

1623728103817.png
This case is being kept pretty quiet, no major details released to speak of (other than it does say there were two different guns used), but no info regarding who found them, who called 911, very little else.

Of interest, the grandfather died just a few days after these murders and it sounds as if he was ill from various articles so probably not unexpected. I think of the typical motives, did grandpa have a big estate? How big in the overall family of grandpa's on down? They sound like a pretty well known family and a powerful one in their state, more on that in the article.

The prominent South Carolina family law firm that is accusing Alex Murdaugh of misappropriating its money has for years been known for its wealth and hefty awards from juries and settlements in court cases.

In Hampton, where the firm’s main office is, its multi-story brick building is called “The House CSX Built” for the many lawsuits the firm’s lawyers won from the railroad company over the years in injury and death cases that happened at railroad crossings around the state.

One senior member, John E. Parker, did so well that he donated $1 million in recent years to upgrade the Hampton County courthouse and also gave land for a county nature trail.


Alex Murdaugh resigned on Friday from Peters Murdaugh Parker Eltzroth and Detrick, which was founded by his family, after the firm discovered he had “misappropriated funds.” Murdaugh said in a statement Sunday he has entered drug treatment and issued an apology to his family, friends and colleagues.

How much money is Murdaugh accused of taking? Over how long a time? Were client funds taken?

The firm is not saying.

However legal sources familiar with the case have told The Island Packet and The State newspapers that the amount is well over a million dollars.

A statement released Monday night said the matter of the “misappropriated” funds has been referred to law enforcement and the S.C. Bar.

“A forensic accounting firm will be retained to conduct a thorough investigation,” said the statement, which invited clients with questions to contact the law firm.

When reached by phone Tuesday, Danny Henderson, an attorney with PMPED, said the firm would not be releasing any further statements.

On Monday night, the Murdaugh law firm released this statement: “On Friday, September 3, 2021, Alex Murdaugh resigned from the Law Firm. He is no longer associated with PMPED in any manner.

“His resignation came after the discovery by PMPED that Alex misappropriated funds in violation of PMPED standards and policies. A forensic accounting firm will be retained to conduct thorough investigation. Law enforcement and the SC Bar have been notified by PMPED.

“This is disappointing news for all of us. Rest assured that our firm will deal with this in a straightforward manner. There’s no place in our firm for such behavior. Due to the ongoing investigations into these matters and client confidentiality, PMPED cannot comment further at this time.

“We encourage any client with questions to contact our offices regarding their file.”



It boggles my mind that somebody can steal that much money from a company and not get caught. And how can you spend that much? You can tell I’m not part of the elite. LOL
 



More info.
 



More info.
Shortly after Paul and Maggie Murdaugh were killed, state investigators said they found information that led them to reopen the investigation into the suspicious 2015 death of a 19-year-old man named Stephen Smith.

There's been some reports that they looked into Stephen's death as they wondered if his loved ones retaliated. I'm reading that as they think his death is suspicious and may be tied into this family for other reasons....
 
Randy Murdaugh has released a statement claiming he was 'shocked' by claims of his brother Alex Murdaugh's drug addiction and blasted him over allegations he stole money from his law firm.

'I was shocked, just as the rest of my PMPED family, to learn of my brother, Alex’s, drug addiction and stealing of money. I love my law firm family and also love Alex as my brother,' Randy Murdaugh wrote in the statement released Wednesday.

'While I will support him in his recovery, I do not support, condone, or excuse his conduct in stealing by manipulating his most trusted relationships.'

He added: 'I will continue to pursue my client’s interests with the highest degree of honest and integrity, as I always have.'

I'd love to know more about their childhood together.

I can totally relate to the brother's feelings. While I loved my sister dearly, she was a thief and I did not condone that one bit. I totally get it, Randy.
 
Days after news broke of Alex Murdaugh‘s alleged financial and drug troubles, the attorney representing Mallory Beach‘s family filed a notice to secure Alex Murdaugh’s personal property when a judgement is issued in the ongoing civil lawsuit. <snip>

The notice filed Wednesday is a move to secure two properties owned by the Murdaugh family in Colleton and Hampton counties — the 1,700-acre hunting property known as Moselle and the coastal property on Big Bay Drive in Edisto, South Carolina. <snip>

The latest move makes it clear that Tinsley will be going after Alex and Buster Murdaugh’s assets in case they try to sell them. It further shows Beach’s intent to pursue every avenue of recovery in the boat crash lawsuit.

<snip>


Maggie Murdaugh owned the Moselle property, while the Edisto property was owned by both Alex and Maggie, according to property records.
In December 2016, Alex Murdaugh “sold” the Moselle property to Maggie Murdaugh for $5 “and love and affection,” a court document states.
According to Maggie Murdaugh’s Facebook page, Maggie moved to the Edisto property in July 2020.

 
Later on Thursday, the HCSO sent out a revised report, this time with the box beside "visible injury" checked off. The words "other major injury" were added next to "visible injury."

The first report also said that Alex was not using alcohol or drugs at the time of the incident. The revised report said it was "unknown" whether Alex was using alcohol or drugs.

In an email to PEOPLE Thursday, Griffin wrote, "I understand that the Sheriff has clarified this 'no visible sign of injury' entry to some reporters."

He continued, saying, "In any event, when the Deputies arrived, Alex Murdaugh was not at the scene. He was picked up by a good Samaritan and who drove him toward the hospital.

"They ultimately met up with the ambulance on the highway, where he was examined and because of the extent of his injuries, the EMTs call for him to be airlifted to the hospital. He had significant head trauma and there was blood at the scene, which is indicated by the evidence cones placed in the roadway. I understand that most of the cones mark blood.

"I presume that the deputy checked the no visible sign of injury on the incident report because he was not able to assess Alex since [Alex] had left the scene before the deputy arrived," he wrote.
Griffin also said that Murdaugh's injuries were far more serious than was initially reported.

Fair enough.
 
"Nobody in any of those counties got elected or appointed without the Murdaughs approval,” a source close to the family told me over the weekend.

And no one got charged – or cleared – without the Murdaughs’ signing off.

Cops, coroners, judges, prosecutors, politicians … all paid obeisance to this family (and many of them were allegedly paid by the family and its powerful allies).

So basically, they ran the place.
 

n arrest has been made in connection with the mysterious September 4, 2021 shooting of prominent South Carolina attorney Alex Murdaugh, multiple sources in the Palmetto Lowcountry confirmed to this news outlet




sources have provided both myself and news director Mandy Matney with information regarding the nature of the charges filed against this individual – however we are declining to publish such information barring an official announcement from law enforcement.

Our local sources have confirmed the suspect is “known to (Murdaugh),” although they declined to elaborate on the nature of the relationship. They also declined to say whether Murdaugh himself would face any charges in connection with the mysterious shooting, which took place ten days ago on Old Salkehatchie road near Varnville, S.C.
