Alex Murdoch’s lawyer admitted for the first time this week that South Carolina’s infamous legal family has always been interested. Double murder of his wife and son.
Men – that was on Thursday. Arrested a second time Within a month, he called 911 in June after finding the bullet-riddled bodies of his wife, Maggie, 52, and their 22-year-old son, Paul.
Her lawyer, Jim Griffin, Fox told Carolina News. On Wednesday, the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) “said after leaving that Alex was an interesting person” in the brutal murder.
Griffin noted, “The next morning SLED said جو which still haunts our minds کہ that the public doesn’t have to worry about their safety,” although he immediately denied suicide in the murder. given.
This will indicate that they thought, “It must be domestic. And when you look at domestic violence, you look at the husband or the father.”
“SLED identified Alex as a person of interest. They never dismissed him as a person of interest,” Griffin admitted.
However, the fact that Murdoch has not been indicted for more than four months should be seen as evidence that he is innocent, the lawyer said.
Griffin told the local Fox station, “You would think that if Alex had done that, SLED would have been able to set it up easily that night.”
“You think they will come up with something to link Alex to murder, forensics or independent evidence. And to my knowledge they did not.
He acknowledged that the officers were “not sharing any information,” but said: “I’m sure they would have charged Alex if they had, and they have not charged him.
“I think it’s a door worth pursuing … is there anything he or she did in the end?” He asked.
“Did he have the money owed, or did the middle man cheat the money and blame it on Alex? Was it his driver?” He asked.
“I don’t know. But it certainly provides another way to investigate that we didn’t know existed.
Griffin dismissed earlier reports. Maggie Murdoch wanted a divorce., Claiming that the text messages between the couple were full of “I love you” and “no sign of a domestic dispute.”
“He had no intention of killing them. He loved his wife, he loved his son,” he claimed. “He will not be able to kill.
“I can assure you that we have Alex’s whereabouts during this time,” he said.
Asked why Murdo unexpectedly went to the Weekend Hunting Lodge where he was found murdered by his family members, Griffin admitted, “I have no idea. I mean, I have no answer. ۔ “
However, he insisted that his friend did not.
“I strongly feel that he did not,” said Griffin, who knew Maggie and Paul Murdoch and “thought the world.”
“I can tell you that if Alex had a role in the deaths of Maggie and Paul in my heart of hearts, I would not defend it so aggressively,” he said.
Murdoch was one of South Carolina’s most prominent legal families, with three generations serving as a continuous attorney for the 14th Circuit.
SLED did not respond to a request for comment on a person interested in the deaths of his wife and son.
The agency called the FBI last month for help. Mark Kell, head of SLED, pledged at the time, “Our agents are committed to following the facts, even if they guide us.”
