This thing just keeps getting crazier as the layers are uncovered. I can see this becoming a made for TV or documentary. Anyone else following this??

Prominent lawyer shot and hurt months after wife, son slain

Brief rundown:
(1) College kid Paul Murdaugh, in lowcountry, drives boat drunk, kills girl a couple years ago.
(2) Family is connected, they evade prosecution to date.
(3) Murdaugh and his mother were murdered at a hunting cabin a few months ago.
(4) Now the father is shot.

Then there is this....

In 2015 when a local gay teen that was allegedly connected to Murdaugh's oldest son was murdered.

Then their housekeeper mysteriously died after she "tripped" at their home in 2018.

Then you get to the drunk boating accident that killed Mallory Beach.

That puts the body count at 5, at least.

Dude it is crazy! I have been following that story too. There is something fishy going on. My wife has family in the area and they say the talk around town has been that it wouldn't surprise anybody if Alex killed both his wife and his son.

100% the dude shot his family and faked this roadside shooting. He was about to get caught squandering and stealing a bunch of money and he'd rather murder his wife and kid than go to jail.
Or the people who own him are showing everybody else they own what can happen to them.
This guy just doesn’t seem to have the stones to kill all those people.

Nah, this is a guy that's traded on his name, thinks he's a part of some eternal legacy, and when things weren't turning out quite the way he wanted them to he resorted to fraud and theft to maintain appearances. Three people can keep a secret if two of them are dead. The son's trial could easily spoil the family name and legacy, but if he's dead there's no trial. And if the wife is dead she can't tell the cops there's a lot of money missing. And maybe people feel sorry for him and maybe they don't go digging around him so much. He's a Grade A sociopath who cares only about his own skin.
