Former S.C. attorney Alex Murdaugh is accused of killing his wife and son on June 7, 2021. Prosecutors say Murdaugh shot his wife with a rifle and his son with a shotgun in an attempt to draw attention from financial crimes he had allegedly committed.
The murders were just one event in a string of tragedies and crimes connected to the once-prominent South Carolina family. In 2018, the Murdaugh family housekeeper died in their home. One year later, Murdaugh’s younger son was involved in a fatal boating accident. And months after the double murder, Murdaugh allegedly hired a hitman to kill him so that his surviving son could collect a $10 million life insurance policy. All of this took place in the same region where Murdaugh’s father, grandfather and great-grandfather were each elected as the top prosecutor for the past 90 years.
