    Or what if there was no trip and fall, and something more sinister caused her traumatic brain injury? Falling down the stairs to your death sounds like something you would see in a soap opera.

    @islandpacket
    We asked attorney Dick Harpootlian about the injury when it wasn’t obvious in Alex Murdaugh’s court appearance. Not even a Band-Aid.

    Harpootlian repeated what he said in court the previous day, again pointing to the back of his head and reiterating there was an entrance and exit wound.

    Our @WJCLNews crew was there yesterday as Murdaugh made his court appearance. Here you can see his attorney @Harpootlian4SC answering reporter questions.

    Reporter: "Did Maggie and Paul Murdaugh have life insurance policies?"
    Harpootlian: "No. Had no insurance."

    Yes, let's hope, right?! I would hate for this to be another "A Costa" situation where yet another higher office is also on the take.....

    Well Conner Cook did say in a deposition that her heard the rumor that "Timmy" pushed Gloria down the steps.

    https://www.islandpacket.com/news/local/crime/article253592859.html

    "Cook told attorneys that “a couple of things that had happened in Hampton” concerned him about the Murdaugh family. Asked what made him scared, Cook responded: “Them being who they are.” He references a rumor that “Paul had pushed his housemate down the stairs and she died and nothing ever happened.” This rumor — with the name Gloria Satterfield — have circulated online in the wake of Paul Murdaugh’s death."

    "Timmy" was the name his friends gave him when he was significantly intoxicated, belligerent and out of control.

    A man who makes his living off of others' insurance policies had none on his own wife and son? I just find that pretty hard to believe.

    Online records related to criminal charges against Alex Murdaugh and accused co-conspirator Curtis "Eddie" Smith briefly disappeared from South Carolina's publicly accessible court case index Friday.

    Neither Smith's nor Murdaugh's pending criminal charges related to their alleged assisted suicide and insurance fraud plot could be found online for several hours Friday. As of 2:20 p.m., all charge records had been reinstated.

    The South Carolina Attorney General's office is handling prosecution of both cases. Robert Kittle, a spokesperson for the Attorney General, says he's awaiting word from lawyers in the AG's office on why the records might have been missing from the online index.

    You’re missing a pronoun Mr. Harpo. Are you sure neither had life insurance? I wonder if Maggie had a will…

    I think we'll see a big RICO indictment in this case. May not be for a while, but I think there's easily enough for a RICO charge.

    I do not for one moment believe there was no life insurance on MM or PM.

    I think you’re right. The very moment I found CES’s trucking company. I was thinking he was transporting drugs across state lines which makes it a fed case. I found a couple of different spreadsheets from the NY DOT that his name was listed on. The links are now corrupted so I can’t tell what they were for. JMO: I think he was manufacturing and distributing meth and heroin.

    Yeah, there's no way the King of Insurance Lawyers isn't going to have the Mrs. insured up the wazoo. Don't believe it 'Mr. Hootenanny' as someone here called him the other day. :p

    MOO

    Wait - what?!?

    I thought he was doing his own homeowners insurance policy because the trip and fall accident happened in his home. That’s how they got $500,000, from the Alex Murdaugh homeowner policy.

    But this is saying he took out LIFE INSURANCE on his housekeeper?!?! A $4 million life insurance policy on his housekeeper?!?

    if that’s true, then her death is absolutely suspicious!!!

    Wow. Has this been confirmed prior? Certainly takes killing them for life insurance out of the equation

    oh wait, never mind. I see now that it was homeowners insurance. I’m confused though because we were told that the maximum payout on his policy was $500,000. So where is the other $3.5 million coming from?
