A shocking revelation has emerged as forensic expert, Shannon Beekhuizen, has claimed that teenager Stephen Smith was killed because he knew details about the “bad people” involved in his life. Smith’s body was found on a road in South Carolina in July 2015, and the case was initially treated as a hit-and-run. However, the case was later reclassified as a homicide investigation eight years later.
Victim’s Mother Suspects Foul Play
According to CNN, Smith’s mother has stated that the circumstances surrounding her son’s death are suspicious. Sandy, Smith’s mother, wrote a letter to the FBI back in 2016 and claimed that others had suggested Alex Murdaugh’s son, Buster Murdaugh, could be responsible for her son’s death. However, Buster has vehemently denied any involvement.
Forensic Evidence Disproves Initial Claim
According to Ronnie Richter, the Smith family attorney, none of the forensic evidence from the time made sense. There was no shattered glass or tire marks found on the road, which would indicate a hit-and-run. Law enforcement investigators who responded to the death, including investigator Todd Proctor, stated that, based on their 15 years of experience, “nothing about this case” indicated that it was a hit-and-run. However, the Murdaugh family has not been named persons of interest in the probe examining Smith’s death.
