Has the revised report been posted here yet?
Sounds like if 'Griffin said' .. don't necessarily believe it. If the police report said no visible injuries, how could there be blood in his car? It's all spin!
I feel a sense of anger that he was airlifted when there was no visible injury, what with hospitals full of Covid patients and regular folk not nearly as cared for.
Thank the media for redefining the term.
This “no visible injury,” was the result of a mistake in the report made by a responding deputy. All indications are that there was a head wound, although it likely was not as severe as his lawyer is pushing.
This is an interesting article regarding how someone could embezzle funds from a law firm as well as some background re the Murdaugh firm.
In an earlier thread, someone posted the website of the local Congressman, urging people to contact him to bring in the FBI, and this was long before Alex's shooting. Because it does not allow e-mails from people who have a zip code outside the district, I sent him a postcard.
Is he trying to plant reasonable doubt to a potential jury?
I will surely refrain from public debate on the topic, though the following is a good read for anyone unfamiliar with the differences between assault rifles, assault weapons, semi automatic rifles/handguns, etc. It really does give a good analysis of the topic. It also cites numerous sources, including the United States Defense Department's Defense Intelligence Agency book Small Arms Identification and Operation Guide, among many others.

So Griffin says that SLED told him and AM that they are testing AM’s blood in the car from when AM went back in the car to get his phone to call 911.
Apparently Griffin mentioned this to prove there was a visible wound. But he inadvertently answered a question many of us were thinking: was AM’s blood in the car?
My follow up questions are:
1) what are they testing his blood for?
2) are they checking to see if he may have drove the vehicle elsewhere to ditch the gun before parking it there?
3) are they checking to see if there is a blood drip consistent with leaning in to get his phone versus sitting while driving versus self inflicted gun shot?
ETA I also find it notable that the man who was very seriously shot in the head leaned in to the car to get his phone but perhaps didn’t call 911 til in the car with good Samaritans? Is that right? Surely if the Samaritans were there they would have grabbed his phone for him? Moo
The changing story means his lawyers are making it congruent to the additional evidence being reported.
E.g. When it comes out that the tire simply could not be changed, the lawyers expanded Alex’s conversation with the shooter. Now we hear that he questioned whether he could do so. Agnst his interest to do so b/c the more interaction he had the more questions he faced.
The good samaritans, the nearby ambulance and chopper appear to be an effort to avoid the police. Note he doesn’t call the cops until he has left the scene.
I haven't been following this case on WS until today, but I had the same question you did - what caused LE to reopen an investigation into SS's death? It was from a statement made by one of the other males that was on the boat when MB was killed.
Robbing a bank has a much higher penalty than white collar embezzlement.
At this point, I wouldn't be surprised to learn a team of defense lawyers went over the crime scene before LE arrived.
stattlic, If I were to stand on the side of the road facing the woods and shot a 9mm handgun into those woods, approximately how far could it go if it didn't hit anything solid like a tree trunk?
Would distances change greatly with lighter or heavier caliber?
Trust me I know about the brain bleed and not noticing g...lol If you only knew.
So is the report true? Or we still don't know what happened for sure yet?
If it was obvious to LE that either PM or MM killed the other but that it wasn't obvious who killed the second victim, would we have heard any more info than what has been provided with so far?
Were full necropsy/toxicology reports issued? Was "Timmy" killed or was it PM?
You might be right about Griffin, but the other attorney for AM is Dick Harpootlian. He is a high-powered lawyer and now SC Senator. I have no doubt Harpootlian is in charge.
In reference to the questions regarding why AM was airlifted to Savannah:
Savannah is the closest level one Trauma center to where he was located. The different levels of trauma centers are described here
In addition, I’ve posted a picture where I’ve highlight what seems to be the most pertinent information in my opinion
Furthermore, did he actually go home?
