Records show that Colleton County Probate Court Judge Ashley H. Amundson then certified Randolph Murdaugh IV’s application to represent the estate on Sept. 2. Randolph Murdaugh IV, who is Paul’s uncle, is still listed as an attorney on the website for the law firm, PMPED, in Hampton, 南卡罗来纳.

PMPED confronted Alex Murdaugh on Sept. 3 about him allegedly misappropriating funds. Reports claim Murdaugh embezzled at least over $ 1 百万, but the firm has not publicly given a number.

Murdaugh dialed 911 himself at 1:34 下午. 在9月. 4 after suffering what authorities said was a superficial gunshot wound to the head. He was transported to a hospital and survived.

By Sept. 6, Alex Murdaugh resigned from the law firm, releasing a statement that hemade a lot of decisions that I truly regret,” and was entering a drug rehabilitation facility. The South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) said that Murdaugh later admitted to conspiring to organize his own death so that his 26-year-old son, Buster Murdaugh, could collect a $ 10 million life insurance policy.

Murdaugh said he provided, 61-year-old Curtis Edward Smith, a former legal client and his alleged longtime drug dealer, with a firearm, and they both headed to Old Salkehatchie Road in Varnille located in Hampton County on Sept. 4. Smith allegedly fired once, grazing Murdaugh, before driving off.

Smith was charged with assisted suicide, assault and battery of a high aggravated nature, pointing and presenting a firearm, insurance fraud, and conspiracy to commit insurance fraud. His bond was set at $ 55,000 on Thursday and he was later released from custody, claiming in a subsequent interview from his porch that he had been framed by Murdaugh.

Murdaugh turned himself in later Thursday morning. SLED confirmed he was arrested and charged with insurance fraud, conspiracy to commit insurance fraud, along with filing a false police report. Hampton County Magistrate Judge Tonja Alexander set his bond at $ 20,000, and he was released on his own recognizance. He was allowed to return to an out-of-state rehabilitation facility without GPS monitoring.
