    I felt like that interview had a lot of restrictions/conditions attached to it. We did not see the reporter ask any questions about anyone's whereabouts on the night in question or about the family dynamics. JMO.

    I would not surprise me if this ends up not being related to the boat tragedy, but it is too soon to tell. MOO.

    It was a prerecorded interview.

    Thank you @coastal ! I am American, and live in Sweden, but haven't gotten to come home to see my family in 1.5 years. It's SO good to be home! :)

    @Barry, totally agree. I don't think this is connected to the boat incident at all.

    I still think it’s related to the boat incident but not the family of MB. There were many people “name dropped” in the mounds of court papers, including the grandpa that just died too. Some of those people could have been angry that 2 years later, the case had not been closed and by all accounts PM had gotten away with everything he’d ever done up until his death so why would this be different? There were many more people involved in the 2019 boating incident (day/night/aftermath/testimony/subpoenas/ins companies etc) than just the M family. IMO

    In the Missy Bevers case they used some technology that basically picked up all the cellphones or electronic devices in the area in a specific timeframe. I wonder if they can do that here since they have TOD.

    Yes, I know. That was pretty apparent.

    Plus between the fatal boating accident and his own murder PM racked up a few other charges and seemed to skate on them. Adding insult to injury, the judge applied no restrictions to PM, allowing him access to boating and alcohol as well as lifting a travel restriction. Maybe for someone who has been hit with identical charges but with a completely different outcome, I could see the whole thing festering.

    I’m really surprised how unfriendly this thread has become towards the Murdaugh family. A man just buried three members of his family last week. His surviving son just lost his mother and brother.

    MOO

    Personally I believe whomever committed these cold-blooded executions wanted it to APPEAR as vigilante justice.

    If you exclude vigilante justice on either AM/PM, what does that leave other than a plot concocted by AM or random criminals ? I haven't heard of anything that was stolen from house, so if that is the case, less likely it was random criminals. That leaves a family murder-for-hire plot and I doubt AM would have had his son murdered. But stranger things have happened.

    There has been very little released about the murders. There's literally a plethora of folks who could have held a grudge for whatever reason that could be the murderer. And it's safe to say 99% of the locals knew about the boating accident.
    So in my eyes there are many suspects.

    That's all I'm saying :)

    This happens here in Kentucky too (I have a friend who is in this position), and, I suspect, in most states.

    It seems like the arrests in Colleton County have picked up since the shooting. Mostly people with previous drug offenses. I wonder if it is related.

    Happens in smaller counties.
