What did Alex Murdaugh do?

Aside from the fact that Maggie Murdaugh and Paul Murdaugh were shot to death, the records made public by the police don’t show anything about what they think drove him or how the killings happened.

Mallory Beach, who was 19 years old, died in February 2019 when the boat she was in, which was owned by the Murdaugh family, hit a bridge at 2 a.m.

Witnesses said that Paul Murdaugh was driving the car at the time and that he was very drunk and acting violently. In April 2019, Paul Murdaugh was accused of being drunk when he drove the boat. Alex Murdaugh is accused of making it harder to figure out what happened in the accident by putting pressure on witnesses to hide Paul’s guilt. Now, he is being accused of running a number of scams and thefts that were going on at the time of the accident.

One of these alleged attempts to get insurance money was the death of a housekeeper at one of the Murdaughs’ homes in 2018. FITSNews says that in the days and weeks before the killings, a grand jury and a lawyer for Beach’s family were looking for Alex Murdaugh’s financial records.

Even though Buster Murdaugh, the son of Alex and Maggie Murdaugh, has never been charged with a crime, police are looking into claims that he killed a 19-year-old in the area in 2015. One theory says that Alex Murdaugh may have killed Paul and Maggie Murdaugh to hide his complicated web of allegedly illegal activities from investigators looking into the boat accident. In the weeks after Paul and Maggie’s deaths, news stories brought up the idea that they might have been killed out of anger.

Officials say that Maggie and Paul Murdaugh were shot many times on their family land near Islandton between 9 and 9:30 p.m. on June 7, 2021. The Colleton County coroner, Richard Harvey, said that their bodies were found close to dog kennels.

The records made public by the police only say that Paul Murdaugh and Maggie Murdaugh were shot to death. They don’t say what the killer was trying to do or how the killings are thought to have happened.
