A lawyer representing former Lowcountry attorney Alex Murdaugh told reporters Wednesday morning the state is “hiding the ball” and hasn’t handed over any evidence they have in the deaths of Murdaugh’s wife and son.
The mother of a 19-year-old found dead in 2015 said the grand jury indictment of former Lowcountry attorney Alex Murdaugh in the killings of his own wife and son gives her hope for justice for her son’s case.
The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division met with members of Alex Murdaugh’s family Tuesday morning to inform them Murdaugh is expected to be indicted on murder charges later this week, according to Murdaugh’s attorney, Jim Griffin.
The attorney representing the family of a man killed in a 2011 crash who said hundreds of thousands of dollars were misappropriated is calling for justice after a prominent Lowcountry attorney and a banker were indicted this week.
Two lawyers who have been appointed to oversee Alex Murdaugh’s money have filed a motion against him claiming that he dropped his claim to his murdered wife’s estate in order to shield those assets from his creditors.
