South Carolina police have called in the FBI to help investigate the double-slaying of Alex Murdaugh’s wife and son as well as the mushrooming scandals since tied to the disgraced legal scion.
South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) said late Thursday that “initial priority” had only been on solving the “brutal murders” of Maggie Murdaugh, 52, and her son Paul, 22, who were shot dead on June 7.
“During the course of the double murder investigation, SLED agents have uncovered other potential crimes that warrant further investigation,” the agency said in a statement.
He was recently also charged after admitting a hare-brained suicidal scheme in which he hired his alleged drug dealer to off him so that the lawyer’s son would land a $10 million life insurance policy.
A flurry of lawsuits have also accused him of using his legal influence to take money as well as protect his family, including his murdered son Paul, who was due to face trial for a deadly drunken boat crash.
“Our agents remain committed to following the facts no matter where they lead us,” stated SLED Chief Mark Keel, saying they “continue to work diligently to bring justice to all victims in these cases.”
“I have been in contact with the Federal Bureau of Investigation as well as the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of South Carolina,” he said.
“We will continue to call upon our federal partners as their assistance is needed to successfully investigate and prosecute specific aspects of these cases,” he said.
Murdaugh is currently out on $20,000 bond over the botched suicide insurance scam.
