    Not much on this yet but I got it on yahoo and foxcarolina.com. This mother and son were found near a dog kennel on their property in Colleton County SC. Their family has a long history of connections to the legal system in the Lowcountry and the son, who was murdered, was currently facing charges in a boating accident causing death.

    2 Murdaugh family members shot, killed in Colleton County SC homicide

    ADMIN NOTE:

    Many posts have been removed or edited. Since then, I’ve spoken with Tricia and we are making some changes on the fly.

    Although LE has not officially named Alex Murdaugh as a POI, common sense tells us they would be remiss if they were not strongly considering him. Even MM and AM's own law firm saw fit to investigate him so we are opening up sleuthing of him unless LE officially announces that he is NOT a POI.

    We trust Nancy G / Crimeonline for vetting their sources appropriately, so we are temporarily allowing both FITSNews and Mandy Mattney as approved sources in this discussion. As with any source, when we temporarily approve them, their status is subject to our monitoring the type of coverage (i.e. they don’t get too biased or rumor laden, etc), and that decision is subject to change at a later date.

    PS: No absolute trashing of AM or direct accusations.

    So the latest breaking news is:
    1) Gloria Setterfield's family has not received their settlement
    2) Someone known to AM has been arrested in relation to the shooting of AM.

    Was the AM shooting in Hampton County, rather than Colleton County? I'm not sure of the borders.

    Fits is addressing criticism and questions on Twitter. The gist of it is they don’t want to impede an active investigation, and they expect the details tonight.

    I find it interesting that FITSnews says that they know who was arrested but they don't want to release the name until it is announced.
    That makes me believe it is someone we have discussed already in this case.

    I saw that (CES)—we’ll see. There is also a Murdaugh listed from 2020 though.
