Alex Murdau: Who is the disgraced lawyer and why is he on trial?
In the Coleton County Courthouse in Walterboro, South Carolina, Alex Murdau’s words in the aftermath of his wife’s and son’s murder continued to draw attention.
In a second interview with a law enforcement officer, three days after being accused of shooting Maggie, 52, and Paul, 22, at the Islandton family estate, he said: It looked like son.
Prosecutors tried to suggest he made a mistake, but others raised suspicion, with some believing he would say, “They did him a terrible thing.”
The jury was also presented with details about the wide variety of ammunition found in the property reconciliation used in the murder, as well as details about Murdoh’s son’s gun. I mentioned the card statement and circled the purchase from Gucci.
Some of the most compelling evidence of the day came from a detailed analysis of Maggie’s cell phone data, where prosecutors are trying to determine the exact time of death from the phone’s event logs.
A trial is just one of Mr. Murdow’s problems in a story that straddles a botched killer scheme, a multi-million dollar fraud scheme, and an unexplained death.
