Between this case and the one in Idaho, rural Ohio looks better and better.
You know if he didn't feel safe at the crime scene and wanted a firearm, why didn't he just stay up at the house until LE arrived?In Chapmans mind, knowing AM said he wasn't safe and went and got firearm, it was odd that AM wanted to hang up the 911 call to call other family. It could be strange he left the scene and went to the house.
And if you are a politically wired-in, influential, and wealthy lawyer, you would insist on knowing who threatened your son.Yes, that's a very strange statement. If your son has been threatened and you've been told that information by your other son, you would naturally ask him "who is threatening him?"
When they were discussing vehicles today, they never said where Maggie's car was?Saw faint tracks to spot close to Maggie's body. They spent time trying to figure out how different people moved around that night. Tried to see how the tracks lined up with the vehicles there. Were actually impressions in the grass. Didn't line up with the vehicles that were present.
Bingo!!And if you are a politically wired-in, influential, and wealthy lawyer, you would insist on knowing who threatened your son.
I agree. And I keep thinking of how slow that trial went, because every single item of evidence was wrapped up like a Christmas goose stuffed inside a couple of paper bags sealed like they contained toxic waste. All of the time and paper crinkling it took to open the evidence. Every little thing was done so carefully.I was thinking about that earlier. Sheriff Charlie Reader did the right thing in calling Ohio BCI immediately. BCI got there in about 20 minutes or less.
All LE, when they come upon a big crime scene should stop and think of Pike County, OH: How would you manage this crime scene if your governor is in the midst of a presidential campaign and the AG is already running to be governor? Very carefully. Give it to the AG and let him run the show.
Maybe he was only seen as a good attorney because he held power and influence, and not because of his actual skills.While I appreciate Law &Crime's split screen, kudos for that, the talking heads must be out on a smoke break or something instead of watching the trial. DH is not doing well at all, and if he was an effective trial attorney in the past, he really seems to be floundering in this. I wonder if his heart is not really in it? He's saving his best for later? Isn't later now? First impressions, etc.
Also, this is pure speculation, MOO, but I think Buster is so stoic due to tolerable living through chemicals. JMO. Can't say I'd blame him. He's a very young man who has had his entire world ripped apart and may have his own internal burdens to bear.
If you want some aerials and photos -- go to the MEDIA ONLY thread for this case.I had a meeting and missed so much! Paul was found face down? AM says he left after 911 call to go to the house to get weapon? Is that the camo rifle he had?
I need a diagram of this scene! I caught the tire impressions in the grass part, but no idea where those were. And is this witness the sheriffs office boss? How did he hear the 911 call before arriving on scene, or am I misunderstanding?
Could someone pls fill me in? TIA.
And DARN, I missed the I redacted 911 call! I need a source to watch a replay of this tonight.
Per the below article, maybe Paul drove his truck to his grandparent's home in Almeda (which is in Hampton County), switched into his uncle's truck there, and drove his uncle's truck to Moselle?
"Whether Paul Murdaugh’s presence at Moselle was a surprise to Alex Murdaugh – or something he knew about – is still unknown....
According to his uncle, John Marvin Murdaugh, Paul spent the day working with him at his equipment rental business in Okatie, S.C.. When Randolph Murdaugh III needed to be transported to the hospital in Savannah, John Marvin drove his truck to his parent’s home in Almeda and took his father to Savannah in his mother’s car.
He asked Paul to retrieve his truck from his parent’s home – which is believed to be the vehicle Paul drove to Moselle on the night he was murdered. As our founding editor Will Folks reported in this article, Paul was at Moselle checking on a friend’s dog. It’s never been made clear if Paul’s presence was unexpected."

I couldn't get it clear in my mind where the flip-flop tracks were in the hangar. Anyone help me?Inside the Alex Murdaugh Defense: Visual Evidence, Experts, and an ‘Essential’ Stained T-Shirt

This definitely helps me visualize the areas they're talking about during testimony since we are unable to see the body cam footage.
It does seem strange. Maybe AM was trying to deflect police attention from himself onto Buster.Something's fishy here IMO. I find it strange that AM told authorities that he doesn't know who was threatening Paul, but Buster did.
Does it seem strange that a father doesn't know what both of his sons do? Buster must have told AM he knew who was threatening Paul. Why not also share who it was and why?
I did not hear it today, nor before. I always questioned whether we all imagined AM muttered that phrase as an aside. I am positive they played the entire tape today -- so that "Paul, why?" utterance must not have been real. MOO.During 911 call I was waiting to hear AM reference Paul...something like "Paul why did you get into this" ...or words similar. I know I have heard that before when listening to 911 call! I didn't hear it today.
