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.

Wow. Those almost look like the redactions in the "Kennedy File". Yes. IMO. It does seem the jurors were asked questions, And did not just give statements. The square looks weird. "Paul Lynde" Center square. I cannot think of a time where I have heard of a "Court Clerk" To watch a defendant's actions. The jury watching, Yes. They do that on their own. And the defendantis advised by their attorneyto remain as stoic as possible. "Jury Tampering" Yeahhhh. I am not yet through the video. As much as I hate it. It does seem IMO. There was interference in some manner. Making the defense's argument stronger. IMO. He will get a new trial. I have noticed the defense always fights for crime scene photos being shown. Even in cases where DNA proves they committed the crime. In those cases, I believe it is important imposing penalty. I could see if there is doubt being argued. Not allowing according to the "Paralegal "Smoke breaks". That appears to me also, To make a decision FAST! Otherwise...OH YES YOU DO!!! I'll even vape DURING deliberations, Mess with me. Some jurors are saying different. So there is conflict in statements. This also is in favor of the defense. Wow. Like I said. The evidence speaks he is guilty. But how stupid to do these things of misconduct, If they did. I don't understand why they felt they needed to. The one juror telling her husband where they were going. DUH! So since I don't know. For an important trial like this. They weren't sequestered?. If a juror didn't hear a comment. You would think they would ask to repeat it. Or after adjournment that day. They all deny they were coerced. Of course they will however. I personally have never heard of a private meeting with just the jury "Foreman". I am more convinced, And not done with this video. That he will get a new trial. Even if there was not misconduct. It is a mess. There is too much conflict of conduct in statements going polar opposites. Such a high profile case, And if you did. I will say even more now. How incredibly stupid. I hate taking the side of the defense. Especially in this case. IMO. He definitely is guilty. I'm usually for the prosecution. Thank you for posting this @GrandmaBear. That was very good. Unbiased. If it can sway ME for evidence in favor of the defense....
I wondered if the square might be a stamp of some kind which might identify one of the blanked out names.

Oh shoot ! What if it is a prison stamp?

Murdaugh loses his prison phone and canteen privileges after the South Carolina Department of Corrections says he broke rules about engaging with the media after an investigation found he read his journal entries to his lawyer in a recorded phone call.
An incident report says the recording was for an upcoming Fox Nation documentary, "The Fall of the House of Murdaugh."

Alex had a prison phone until August. Could they have been tapping that?
 
I screenshot the affidavit from the video. The offence was on 20th July 2023. So what was going on in court that day, I wonder? Was he recording stuff for her book perhaps ? Several articles on line so I'll have look and post one on here. Will look to see what was happening on that date.
ETA Had a quick look and I cannot find anything Murdaugh related for 20th July so far but it could have been something to do with Fleming or Lafitte. BTW i did find out that Fleming is appealing his verdict and sentence. Will put that in a separate post.

Just bringing my screenshot forward with the name redactions. I worked out the first one is approx 11 spaces and the second one is about 15 spaces. We know who the first one is and I think the second one could be Alex Murdaugh. That's 15 spaces !!!!!!!!!!

He was probably communicating with her regarding his appeal/new trial. AJMO though.
 
HmmMMM a search warrant for a cell phone owned by Becky Hill per the news he is quoting n connecton to this, her son's arrest and Hill turned over her cell phone.... Tuesday evening...
She could try to delete as much information as possible. They will still recover it. I've seen at questioning, LE having a warrant and seeing the cell phone right then. Before the suspect knows they're a suspect.
Why would SLED take her phone if she hasn't done anything wrong?

What I am also wondering about is the FB posts from the egg juror's alleged ex - the ones that he claims he didn't write.

This is beginning to sound like a novel. Maybe there is another book being written.
Right. There has to be enough probable cause to obtain a search warrant.

Those phone calls are ALWAYS monitored
.Yet still, Morons get caught that way telling on themselves in phone conversations.
 
I think they only deliberated for 3 hours, because the holdout juror had already been ousted by Miss Becky and replaced by an alternate.
Yeah. That speaks for itself. 3 hrs. Smh. It's taken much longer than that on solid murder cases. That looks even worse for the prosecution. To do not just one thing that is questionable, But several. And some IMO, Like that are so obvious. IDKY They would be so stupid.
 
O.K. I looked up "Stamped court document examples". The ones that came up. They were stamped in a place meant for it. In the cases in "Los Angeles County". There is a stamp sideways on the bottom over text always in the same place, That is non sequential. Including the divorce petition from "Tom Cruise" To "Nicole Kidman". What a jerk he is. And "Drew Barrymore's "Divorce Petition" To her husband of 29 days in 1994. I don't even remember that. 29 days. WOW! That's up there with "Ernest Borgnine and Ethel Merman". IDK Who's idea that was. But I am guessing it involved alcohol, Maybe a bet. Their fights must have been epic! But those came up. I wasn't looking under names.

DUCK!!!!🥄🧂🥃🍽️~~~~~~~~~*I
 
I watched the multi part documentary on this. And I didn't find it biased. It was backed up on facts, Evidence that pointed to guilt on everything they have been accused of. So, Yes, It is IMO. They have gotten away with everything they could because of who they are, Money, And power. It included all of the murders, And the suspicious death of the man on the road, And the girlfriend on the boat, The mother, The alcohol being given to minors at the law office. Yes @GrandmaBear. It was a law partners kid involved.
A law partner's kid involved in which thing?

I think this is a SLED document isn't it?
 
You know we have heard about these two rooms for the jurors? Does that include the alternates? Eg could they have the alternates in one room together? Or were they split by something else eg guilty and not guilty ones? Men and women? I have to say that I have never heard of deliberating jurors being split and I don't know the purpose of that at all. The whole point of a deliberating jury is so they can discuss it altogether.

I do NOT know this for a fact. But I believe they would have to have them all together to continue to deliberate. The alternate jurors being in the same room. That seems that would absolutely taint them. That's how I could make sense of the 2 rooms.
 
My jury didn't have two rooms. We had a long desk with just enough room to move our chairs back to get in and out comfortably without trouble. We had one bathroom that we all used. Unfortunately, I can stink up a bathroom beyond belief. At least it was a fair distance away.

The bailiff came in and took our orders for lunch. My order of Filet Mignon and lobster tail was treated like a joke.

:bawling:

Yeah. No. Your choices are....Tuna , Egg or chicken salad. All beverages are water. Oh! And you get a bag of potato chips. Plain, No ridges. O.K. You get the sandwich you get. Would you like cheese on it for 25 cents?.

Yeah Fair. Not far. There were people in close proximity. You do realize that. They all had to be treated for mustard gas exposure l.
