Alex Murdaugh's guilty verdict isn't the end: What's next for shamed lawyer
Former lawyer Alex Murdaugh has been found guilty of murdering his wife and son in 2021, but he is also still facing a wealth of other charges.
Gloria Satterfield DeathThe Murdaugh family housekeeper, Gloria Satterfield, died as a result of injuries sustained in a fall at their Moselle home in 2018. The investigation into her death is still ongoing, after her case was reopened by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) in 2021.
Hampton County coroner Angela Topper asked law enforcement to reopen the investigation, saying that Satterfield's death "was not reported to the coroner at the time, nor was an autopsy performed."
Additionally, Topper wrote: "On the death certificate the manner of death was ruled 'Natural,' which is inconsistent with injuries sustained in a trip and fall accident."
Satterfield's family are named in Murdaugh's financial fraud charges, as he is accused of stealing $3.4 million in insurance money that was meant to go to her sons after her death.
