The third week of disbarred South Carolina attorney Alex Murdaugh’s double homicide trial – the main event of the ‘Murdaugh Murders’ crime and corruption saga – is officially in the books.
To recap: Murdaugh stands accused of killing his wife, 52-year-old Maggie Murdaugh, and youngest son, 22-year-old Paul Murdaugh, on his family’s hunting property in Colleton County, S.C. on June 7, 2021. He pleaded not guilty to those charges and is currently standing trial in Walterboro – part of the Lowcountry region of the state his influential family ran like a fiefdom for more than a century.
This week was the wildest week yet from Walterboro … with a big ruling, some bombshell testimony and an actual bomb threat. In this week’s episode, our research director Jenn Wood and founding editor Will Folks walk you through all the latest developments …

My favorite trial recap so far! I don’t even know y’all (in real life) but you’re some of my favorite peeps currently. My tiny circle isn’t following the Muraugh saga so I’m gravitating, I suppose! How does one go about “smoking out” the media RV with the FITS crew?! Maybe not right in front of the the courthouse though….. ??
Great week in review; thanks for the update!
Think that is the face he made right before he squeezed off a couple rounds?

You two are great! So glad I first found you on YouTube. Has anyone ever considered the comment Alex made to law enforcement the night of the murders? He called Paul “a little detective”….I got the feeling that he had been upset with Paul for finding something that he didn’t want him to know. I don’t think it was about the pills; because I’m not convinced that Alex has a real “pill” problem. Thanks for everything you guys are doing. We need your “real” news. Thanks for not turning your heads from truth.
