Alex Murdaugh Guilty Evidence
Kennel Video Murdaugh trial may place him at the scene of the murders.
One big piece of evidence that may place Alex Murdaugh at the scene of the crime is the Kennel video that was brought into evidence. The video was filmed by Paul Murdaugh on the night of the murders, and three voices can be heard in the background, including Alex Murdaughs.
One of the motives for the killings is said to be the insurance payout worth $10 million. The prosecution has pointed out that Murdaugh had a history of financial troubles and was likely to be the beneficiary of the policy. The prosecution has argued that the killings were carried out to cash in on the policy and to pay off debts.
A number of inconsistencies have emerged in Murdaugh’s account of events. He has changed his story multiple times, and eyewitnesses and forensic evidence have contradicted his claims. In one instance, Murdaugh claimed that he was shot in the head while changing a tire, but it later came out that his former client Curtis Smith was responsible for trying to shoot Alex, per his own request. Such inconsistencies have raised doubts about his version of events and suggested his involvement in the killings.
A report from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division suggests that Murdaugh was involved in the misappropriation of funds from a law firm where he worked. The report suggests that Murdaugh stole millions of dollars from the firm and used the money to fund his lifestyle. The report suggests that Murdaugh may have been under financial pressure and needed the insurance payout to cover his debts.
Murdaugh also has a history of erratic behavior, including drug abuse and a previous DUI charge. These factors suggest that he may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the murders. The evidence suggests that Murdaugh was involved in the killings of his wife and son, likely for the insurance payout and to pay off his debts.
