Alex Murdaugh Is a Person of Interest in Wife and Son’s Murder, His Lawyer Says


Jim Griffin, his lawyer in South Carolina, said that Alex Murdaugh, a disgraced lawyer, is a person-of-interest in the double homicides of Maggie Murdaugh (wife) and Paul Murdaugh (son). Griffin said that the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED), had immediately named him as a person in interest after the pair were discovered dead from multiple gunshot injuries at their Colleton County hunting camp. “never eliminated him as a person of interest,”He said Fox Carolina NewsThis week, earlier.

SLED has not confirmed the allegations and has not provided any updates on the killings of June 7, except to say that there is no public threat.

Murdaugh is not being charged in the murders his 22-yearold son and 52-years-old wife.

Griffin claims that he doesn’t believe Murdaugh murdered Maggie and Paul. He said that Murdaugh wasn’t actually home at the time they were killed.

“He was sitting at the bedside of his mother at her house when the coroner says these murders happened,”Griffin stated that Griffin also mentioned that his mother, who has dementia, had housekeepers at home.

Griffin continued, “He had no motive to kill them. He loved his wife, he loved his son. The murder was done in the most brutal fashion with two separate weapons.”

He remembered text messages Murdaugh had sent to his wife in which they were constantly telling each other. “I love you” “good night”They were far from each other. “There’s no hint of domestic abuse,”He stated.

However, according to People Magazine, a law enforcement source they describe as familiar with the case said Maggie allegedly sought out a divorce lawyer six weeks before she was murdered, a source in law enforcement familiar with the case told . People Magazine reported that the source claimed it was related with family finances.

“She didn’t pay close attention to the family money or where it came from,”According to People, this source claimed. “But now she was starting to look into it.”

However, a spokesperson from the Murdaugh family denied these claims.

“The most recent allegations by People Magazine regarding the state of Maggie and Alex Murdaugh’s marriage are totally inconsistent with what we have been told by friends and family members,” according to a statement to press. “Also, we have reviewed many years of text messages on Alex’s phone, and the conversations between Alex and Maggie portray a very loving relationship.”

“Who kills a mother and a son unless they’re in some delusional state or some mind-out-of-body experience?” Griffin said in the interview with Fox Carolina News. “There’s no reason for that to occur. He wasn’t someone who had an out-of-body experience.”

Murdaugh had been dealing with an opioid addiction for the last 20 years, Griffin said, and while it is possible he was on opioids at the time his wife and son were killed, “everybody who’s ever been around him in the last couple years he’s been on opioids and he was acting normal and he was acting normal that night.”

Griffin also stated that he was being hired to represent Murdaugh “all these other things he did,”And not in a case of murder. “I wouldn’t be so aggressive in defending him,”He stated. “That would be grave injustice and I would stand up against any injustice that I see.”
