Okay, so legal proceedings can drag on and on and on... which case(s) move to the top of the proverbial list and which go nowhere?

Alex is facing another 99 cases, right?

The local, family-run bank is mixed up with Alex's shenanigans, so does that hit the courts?

The Beach family - will they get their financial settlement? Any judgment that Paul was indeed responsible for the crash/death?

Stephen Smith - will Buster and his no-homo friends be joining Daddy Murdaugh in the all-male showers of prison? "That Buster, he's a cutie! Bend that bitch ova fo me!" Will Daddy be forced to watch his son get violated?

And what of the Alex's remaining siblings, in-laws, nieces and nephews? Life go on for them as if nothing happened?

The Beach family has already gotten a partial settlement from the proceeds from Maggie's estate (including the sale of Moselle).

The former bank president has been found guilty and his request for a new trial was denied.

Alex's family is publically supporting him (with the notable exceptions of Randy and Maggie's sister), but you have to believe that they are hounded by doubts.

Supposedly, SLED found new evidence linked to Stephen Smith while they were investigating the double murder at Moselle. That is why they reopened the case. I would love to know what it is they found.

It's not just the housekeeper who died mysteriously. Hakeem's life support was cut off just before Alex sent out a "May Day" email to the bank to get them to forge Hakeem's paperwork to show him as still being alive.

Buster, just seems weird to me. In one of the prison phone calls to Alex, Buster catches him up in a lie. He doesn't call Alex out on it, but he knows he's lying. Alex was talking about how the other inmates wanted his orange gym shoes, but in an earlier conversation he says he's in solitary, and has no contact with anyone. The other phone calls are odd too, because they're both speaking in code, about money, and Buster going hunting. There's probably a lot more despicable things to these people.

I've wondered about Cousin Eddie too. I was surprised that he didn't testify in AM trial. I believe He's going to testify in the trial for AM financial crimes. I think AM intended to kill or at least frame Cousin Eddie for Maggie and Paul. Alex, probably used Cousin Eddie, a lot, to carry out some of the financial crimes, especially because drugs were involved.

by Anonymousreply 32March 18, 2023 1:37 PM

^^ He knew Cousin Eddie knew a lot of his secrets and Cousin Eddie was already a small time criminal. I believe in his irrational, drug fueled mind, he would say he was being blackmailed by CE. Cousin Eddie, wanted money, Alex didn't pay up, so CE killed them. Its a weak theory, but Alex was addled and grabbing for anything.

I remember hearing a law enforcement interview with an "older man" on Hilton Head.

Yes, I recall that, too, r45. Smith had told a friend or friends that he had started to see a wealthy older man who owned a boat, but kept mum about his identity and gave no details. My impression was the friends thought they were in a dating relationship. But then, one doesn't go around talking about escorting IRL.

by Anonymousreply 46March 18, 2023 5:03 PM

Cousin Eddie, sort of made a veiled threat to AM in an interview. He said, he didn't expect AM to have a gun. When Alex called him, he thought he was needed to fix something, and when he got there Alex had a gun and they wrestled with it, and it went off. He denied, denied, denied knowing anything about anything, but he also said the Murdaughs , had better not go there. He said; I'd advise them not to go there. I remember reading something about a Church camera catching part of what happened between them, but I'm not sure if that's true. My question is CE, had a 20'000 bond to get out of jail, and claims he's broke and couldn't afford a Lawyer. So how'd he get out of jail? So much shadiness and still unanswered questions.

On the Court TV aftershow last week they were talking about Alex's money, and whether he is truly "broke." It turns out that he has trust fund $$ left to him by his father, which apparently cannot be touched under SC law. They didn't know how much, but it's evidently generational wealth spawned by his father, grandfather and great grandfather through the years - even if it's split among the three brothers and the one sister.

There's a long line of victims trying to get whatever they can for their clients, among them the Beach family and all the injury clients like that poor deaf paralegic. One might think the sale of the Moselle property for $3.9 million might go toward these victims, however, that property was in Maggie's name, and again, according to SC law, half of the proceeds will go to - guess who? Buster - with the other half going to the victims. It's INSANE.

by Anonymousreply 52March 19, 2023 12:23 AM

"Buster seemed oddly without emotions."

You might think the same of me if you met me in person, and that's because I grew up with a parent who had narcissistic -+*tendencies. If I showed feelings or expressed needs as a child there was hell to pay, because a person on the narcissism spectrum family life is 100% about their own needs. The family is there to deal with the narcissist's feelings, and not vice versa!

And since Alex Murdaugh seems to be a case of full-blown toxic NPD, Buster probably grew up with similar tendencies, although unlike me, he grew up as a scion of a corrupt dynasty. But he may share the child-of-a-narcissist's tendency to go all gray-rock when feeling under attack (such as being under media scrutiny), because that's what you do when a narcissist has control of your life. You don't fight back, you don't cry, you just let them get on with the rage, because doing anything else will make the rage worse.

I don't think Buster and Stephen were involved with other sexually. Stephen had told people he was going deep sea fishing with someone who had a boat and was high up and everyone would be surprised He indicated he was involved with this person. That's not Buster. And I don't think he was referring to the motor boat that was in the accident. He was talking about a luxury boat or yacht. That doesn't mean Buster and his pals didn't beat the shit out of Stephen on a dark and lonely road in the middle of the night even if they didn't mean to actually kill him. I think Buster is definitely capable of that.

"There has been a lot of discussion as to what prompted SLED to open that homicide probe. Today, the public will get to view the file that led them to do so … the original 2015 S.C. Highway Patrol (SCHP) “Multi-Disciplinary Accident Investigation Team” (MAIT) report into Smith’s death.

Contrary to popular perception, SLED’s investigation into Stephen Smith’s death was not based on any evidence or information obtained at Moselle – but rather the agency obtaining a copy of the MAIT report.

“Anyone who reads that file knows it was not a hit-and-run,” one law enforcement source told me this week. “But even if it was a hit-and-run, it’s still a vehicular homicide.”

A lot of the stuff, most of it really, is what you would expect to find in a junkyard. No wonder Maggie hated the hunting lodge, even though it was in her name.

I wonder how far some of those people traveled for the occasion. Phone and internet bids weren't allowed. In person bidding only.

Ugh. Bad juju. I guess these bitches have never seen those movies about demons following old furniture items.

My question is, before the dynasty came crashing down, was Alex the #1 son? I know he has multiple brothers, but haven't seen it clarified who was the LEAD Murdaugh

I’m guessing Alex was a fuckup like Paul.

I wonder if Maggie was also the family fuckup in her family of origin. How else to explain ending up with Alex?

Even her friends and family give sort of blah descriptions of her. “She was a mom, she liked doing things with her kids, etc” It’s as if they are trying not to say too much. Or else she really did just sit on her ass her whole life. It’s not like her kids were young.

The beach house - Edisto Island, SC. - See link.

No wonder Maggie liked it.

What is Randy’s excuse for being on the scene so quickly? Does he have one?

The Edisto house is so staged. It looks like every VRBO from Charleston to Hilton Head.

"My question is, before the dynasty came crashing down, was Alex the #1 son?"

I'd guess Randy was actually the #1 son, but Alex thought he was.

As for Maggie ending up with Alex, that's totally understandable. She was from that region and if her goal was to "marry well" and be a spoiled wife and full-time mother, then she couldn't be too picky about personality! No, for a blonde Southern gal to meet her life goals, she needs to look at family money and connections, make damn sure that the man she married would be able to support her in the lifestyle she damn well expected. So what if that meant marrying an asshole, she knows how to manage a man...

R110 we don’t care what the daily mail says. We are capable of comign to our own conclusions.

What is it with people who read that crap? They are always nut jobs and shut ins. It’s the official paper of pathetic people.

36,000 for a living room set of furniture? Was it made of gold?

People like that have too much money are perpetually being ripped off on something or another.

Yes, well Alex went and killed Gloria who would normally have kept it cleaner.

Who is "we" r125 and why are you arrogant enough to presume to speak for others? Did they send you here to express their displeasure?

What "conclusions" do you believe I want you to come to by posting a DM article that contains pictures of the Murdaugh’s belongings?

Jesus, that photo of the six friends just screams "why stereotypes exist" - just some good ole boys and their chicks. One of whom will be pregnant within a year.

She lives in rural South Carolina. Who else is she going to meet?

I'd bet that he's from a family with money like Paul. I can't blame her. I'm honestly pretty envious of people who can be in a relationship with pretty fugly people since I never can get past that.

R138 is correct. Real country boys don’t wear $400 Barbour jackets like he has on in that pic. Morgan got a taste of the good life and isn’t going to marry for love and live in a trailer on the edge of a soybean field.

The auction was bubba central for death cultists. The family was killing obsessed. Horrible people, not surprised they came to a bad end.

I wonder how many of the vast collection of twin beds were masterbated in by the boys.

R115. He overpaid. I hope the furniture haunts his hunting lodge. Creepy.

Maggie's bicycle went for $950. A friend of hers bought it so it wouldn't go to some redneck prole. The turtle shell lamps went for $650 each.

God only knows what the guns and the BULLETS went for!

Bubba the dog who helped seal Alex's fate, went to the housekeeper Blanca Simpson.

R148 Because he's a sociopath like the rest. Also, I'm sure the dog was much more familiar with the housekeeper than Buster.
