As it turns out there are more holes in the story of Murdaugh ‘s family drama than initially realised. In the beginning, it was thought that the attempted shooting on his life was in fact by a stranger. But cops in the area and prosecutors now say that Murdaugh ‘s fall from grace has in other words become deeply more sinister than anyone had noticed.
Prosecutors allege that Murdaugh allegedly hired his own hitman to shoot him nearly in the head earlier this month resulting in an even deeper mystery into an already troubled family. That incident reportedly happened as prosecutors further allege that Murdaugh was already entangled in a family row with his brother over supposed stolen millions from their law firm.
In a further twist, cops say that Murdaugh hired his former client Mr. Curtis Smith to help him stage the shootinge that occurred on the side of a South Carolina road. In that sense, it is said that Smith intentionally received a bought gun from Murdaugh who then instructed him to help him stage his own murder. Defense attorneys of course would go on to argue
According to what we could find, Murdaugh has been charged with insurance fraud, conspiracy to commit insurance fraud, and filing a false police report, according to the South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division (SLED). But the scandals of the Murdaugh family apparently go much deeper than presented.
The same Murdaugh maintains that he has since struggled with an opioid addiction and depression since his family was slaughtered earlier this year in South Carolina. News of the addiction, however, isn’t the full scope of the story as it has also come to light that Murdaugh had been stealing from his own family’s pot of gold.
