    I’m just letting my imagination run wild here but…

    Has anyone ever considered if this could be bigger than we think? What if the firm is just a money laundering outlet and there’s a bigger organized crime syndicate rooting itself into the community through it?

    Of course PM and MM would be erased for bringing attention to matters that should remain hidden behind perfect southern charm and hospitality. It sent a very real message to AM and the firm to control your peeps and not mess with them.

    AM and family had of course benefited through the years by greasing the palms of many influential players for the bigger “FAMILY” but in this he is the fall guy - he isn’t a drug addict nor did he take the firm funds. He just had family members that brought too much attention where there shouldn’t have been.

    The firm had to explain how certain millions went missing by saying that AM took it, because FAMILY isn’t happy about all the scrutiny and needed ”expenses” that couldn’t be adequately explained to be explained quickly.

    For AM, the only choice left was publicly take the fall and make everything be quiet again or your and BM’s safety would be not be guaranteed…

    He thought he’d kill himself and provide BM with enough funds for life so he can move away and not work for the firm anymore. But CES (the only person he knew who might agree to such a crazy plan) proved much too unreliable and it failed.

    So now he has no choice but to go to jail as the fall guy who took millions.

    Just my musings. Maybe I watch too many movies.

    For sure! Is there no public record of what occured by those present? AM's lawyer has said he wasn't. Did she fall when nobody was around and was found after the fact? Seems if they blamed it on the dogs getting underfoot someone who was there had to attest to that.

    She was air lifted so how'd that all come about? So many questions, there has to be a report somewhere...hopefully.

    <modsnip> I really believe Murdaugh and his attorneys are setting CES up for even more serious charges ... involving MM and PM.

    Meth will cause one to pick at their face.

    Re: the money. When we placed disciplinary sanctions against a physician’s license - the main reasons were because the doctor wanted power, money, drugs or sex so much they were willing to risk their reputation, career and livelihood. Sounds just like AM. No one can make me believe he didn’t also have a sexual cost of living allowance he kept in his piggy bank loaded with stolen money.

    We had a catch-all grounds rule we used at the Board for physician licensure restrictions, suspension or revocation: Moral Turpitude ~ A phrase that describes wicked, deviant behavior constituting an immoral, unethical, or unjust departure from ordinary social standards such that it would shock a community.

    Murdaugh Arrest Updates: We have a Guardian/USA Today reporter in the courtroom waiting the results of a bond hearing. When asked what Murdaugh's state of mind was, one of his attorneys, Dick Harpootlian, said, "He's in the jail. That's his state of mind."
    When asked if Murdaugh would go back to rehab, Harpootlian said, "I hope so."

    Murdaugh Bond Hearing Update: The attorneys are now in the courtroom, and Alex Murdaugh's U.S. Passport is lying on the defense table. If he is granted bond, he may have to surrender his Passport.

    Then it wouldn't be SLED planting incriminating things, it would be lawyers.
