Alex Murdaugh was always person of interest in wife, son’s double murder: lawyer


Alex Murdaugh’s lawyer admitted for the first time this week that the disgraced South Carolina legal scion has always been a person of interest in the double slaying of his wife and son.

Murdaugh — who on Thursday was arrested for the second time in a month — had been the one who called 911 after finding the bullet-ridden bodies of wife Maggie, 52, and their 22-year-old son Paul in June.

His attorney, Jim Griffin, told FOX Carolina News on Wednesday that the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) “has said from the get-go that Alex was a person of interest” in the brutal slayings.

“SLED said the next morning — which is still mind-boggling to us — that the public need not be worried about their safety,” Griffin noted, even though the slayings were immediately ruled out as murder-suicide.
