    I am leaning towards he made enemies, he needed money, he got his family killed and had an attempt on his life. I think he is in protective custody. JMHO

    "Griffin said neither Murdaugh nor SLED were satisfied with the accuracy of the sketch of the gunman."

    It must be this sketch--

    That’s pretty much exactly what they say whenever an outlet reaches out for comment.

    I would expect the Colleton county sheriff to have to answer to the “no threat” nonsense but like several SC law agencies, this one is corrupt too with a sheriff pleading guilty less than a year ago for being crooked, so I guess the current one won’t be up for some time. What a disgrace.

    This is interesting, rehab then protective custody. IMO either this guy was working and living in a very dark world or he was a druggy, ne'er do well that lived well above his means and got caught. I'm tossed and waiting on more...

    Right. And as I recall this is not the first time this particular lawyer has said something at odds with either the facts or what others say happened.

    It doesn't throw a hitch in that with his wife having the family's private finances forensically audited?

    I don't see the firm blowing up. In a legal situation, most people want the lawyer that can win. Not much has changed. That law firm can still be a heavyweight

    Well said and interesting fact about opiates equating to alcohol in this sense. As a side note, my step father was a long term alcohol addict who held a senior management position before retiring.

    His practice was to retain and reward capable deputies for a variety of reasons. One of which was that the practice went a long way towards covering up any losses of control at work or alcohol induced interferences with work.

    JMO but I don't think we've seen all the dirt and the dirty in this firm...yet.

    Maybe after that GSW to the head (with an entry and exit wound) all he saw was stars?

    I do hope he gets the help he needs. This guys life is spinning out of control. I really feel for his son BM and his brothers (especially Randy) who seem to really care about him. My prayers to MM's family also who's head must be spinning in circles with all this coming out after losing two family members.

    We don't but I'd think they both probably did.

    If client money is gone and the firm doesn't cover it then I think the firm is DOA. JMO.

    I know that it has been reported that MM and PM were killed with different types of weapons (see upthread), but I am most curious about whether they were killed at different times.

    Perhaps the perpetrator murdered one of the two victims, disposed of the murder weapon, and was caught by the other victim while doing something incriminating. The perpetrator then had to use a different weapon to murder the second victim.

    All MOO.

    Has anything been reported to the effect that it has been confirmed that they were killed at the same time? (Law enforcement mist likely has this information.)
