    Welcome to WS, it's great to have you, CandiceC!

    I find it very curious that both MM and PM spoke to the 911 operator, if neither saw GS fall, and MM called 911, why would the operator want to speak to PM? Surely he couldn't add any details if he hadn't seen anything...?

    Regarding the "ironies" point, doesnt he still have the same policy and now that he knows, can't he still kill himself so BM gets the $10 million?

    In their many interviews, have AM's lawyers provided any reason why CES would (according to AM version of events) be such a team player and agree to the pro-bono assisted suicide/murder ?

    'He tried to meet with close friends that day to come clean' --about the embezzlement? Drugs? Other?


    'At some point that day he lost the will to live' -- so his assisted suicide plot with CES was only hatched that day? AM just called CES up that morning, asked if he would shoot him, and without any contemplation, CES drove right over.

    'blood through the bandage, blood on neck brace, blood on the stomach' -- and yet according to an accidental clerical error, the responding officer marked 'no visible injury'? All that blood and released from hospital within a couple days?

    Alex Murdaugh's lawyer details day of roadside shooting in alleged botched suicide scheme

    "The irony of ironies in this, he had a significant life insurance policy," Griffin added. "He had a suicide exclusion, but that suicide exclusion was no longer valid because under South Carolina law, they’re only effective for two years. That policy was taken out more than two years ago. Alex was unaware of that. Had he known that, he did not need to involve anyone else."

    BBM
    Sez who? I don't believe a personal injury lawyer of AM's experience wouldn't know what his insurance policy was, every little detail.

    His lawyer saying that he didn't know and his...oh so see he didn't have to hire a hitman, he could have killed himself-speil...only makes me know all the more that cousin Eddie is lucky to be alive. I think AM had a much different plan in mind than killing himself so BM could get rich. Nope, not buying it. AJMO

    I don't believe for a second that AM didn't know about that suicide exclusion. AM knows how to collect insurance settlements for his clients but doesn't know about his own policy? Nope, not buying it.

    I'm with you on that. Cousin Eddie literally dodged a bullet.

    What a perfect thing that would have been if AM had been shot at by his drug dealer cousin, and had to kill him in self defense. Then it would be revealed that his black sheep cousin had killed AM's wife and son, and would have killed Buster too, if AM hadn't heroically shot him.

    In fact, cousin Eddie had been black mailing AM, and forced him to steal money from the law firm, to prevent evil cousin Eddie from following through on the threats to the Murdaugh family.

    The insurance company should cancel that policy.

    Murdaugh Murders Saga: Attorneys Target Bank For Botched $4.3 Million Settlement

    Murdaugh Murders Saga: Attorneys Target Bank For Botched $4.3 Million Settlement

    As a personal representative of an estate, Westendorf was in charge of managing the money of the estate and distributing the checks from the settlement. He was also obligated to fulfill his duties as an officer of the court.

    When Judge Carmen Mullen approved the $4.3 million settlement in 2019, Westendorf was obligated under court order to distribute $2.8 million to Satterfield’s sons.

    “He was supposed to be the backstop if Cory or Alex were doing anything inappropriate, he was supposed to say ‘whoa, whoa whoa… I’m the one distributing the checks and I need to get (Gloria’s sons) their $2.8 million and I have to pay $50,000 to probate court,'” Bland said.

    Bland has found multiple other Hampton County cases where Laffitte acted as the personal representative — and some of those cases involve the Murdaugh law firm and at least one involves Fleming.

    “It is a rarity for a bank employee to be a personal representative,” Bland said. “That is something that is by statute reserved for family members.”

    Bland said his motion sends a clear message to Palmetto State Bank to let them know they’re on the hook.

    “We’re letting the bank know they’re our real object of affection,” Bland said. “And it tells them ‘you guys have done this before so don’t act like this is something new.”

    Alex Murdaugh’s brother will no longer represent Paul Murdaugh’s estate. Why?

    Five weeks after being appointed to handle the estate of Paul Murdaugh, who was found murdered in June, Randolph Murdaugh IV, Paul’s uncle, has resigned, citing a conflict of interest, probate records show.

    “Due to recent discovery of events, I now have a conflict of interest and can no longer serve as personal representative for the estate of Paul Terry Murdaugh,” Murdaugh IV wrote in an Oct. 7 letter to Colleton County Probate Judge Ashley H. Amundson.

    Randolph Murdaugh IV’s abrupt resignation does not indicate what recent discovery created a conflict of interest, whether it was related to the criminal investigations involving the Murdaugh family, whether it’s because Murdaugh IV’s law firm is suing Paul’s father, Alex or if it’s for another reason.

    Paul Murdaugh’s probate records also show that on Sept. 16, Sept. 23 and Sept. 30, Murdaugh IV had notices filed in a Colleton County newspaper that Paul’s estate was open for creditors’ claims. The records indicate that no claims have been filed as of Wednesday.
    ...

    Makes me think that MM put moselle in PM’s name.

    Daily Beast:


    Alex Murdaugh’s Lawyer Finally Admits He’s a Person of Interest in Family Murders

    "After months of speculation, Alex Murdaugh’s lawyers have finally admitted the South Carolina attorney—who’s already accused of orchestrating his own murder—is a person of interest in his wife and son’s double homicide."

    <snip>

    "Griffin, however, admitted that state authorities “are not sharing information but I believe if they had that [information] they would have charged Alex and they have not charged him.” SLED did not respond to The Daily Beast’s request for comment about Murdaugh being a person of interest."

    Murdaugh Murders: Alex Murdaugh Arrested In Florida On Charges Related To Satterfield Case

    Alex Murdaugh was arrested in Orlando, Florida Thursday on charges related to the Gloria Satterfield case, according to the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED).

    Murdaugh was charged with two felony counts of obtaining property by false pretenses.

    “These charges stem from a SLED investigation into misappropriated settlement funds in the death of Gloria Satterfield,” SLED officials said in a statement.

    Agents arrested Murdaugh after he was released from a rehab facility in Orlando for his alleged drug addiction. He was taken to Orange County Corrections.
