It shows the latest criminal investigation related to the embarrassed dynasty, in which its patriarch Alex Murdo colluded with a former drug dealer. Assisted suicide failure According to police and his own lawyer last week.
Formerly a strong lawyer and decades of working as a prosecutor in South Carolina Lowcountry with his relatives, Madau has not been charged with crime.
According to the settlement, Murdows’ 57-year-old long-time housekeeper Satterfield died on February 26, 2018, “as a result of being injured in a travel and fall accident” at his family-owned Hampton County home. Alex Murdo got her fortune.
“She was a Murdaughs housekeeper for 25 years. She was part of the family,” Eric Brand, a lawyer representing Satterfield’s two sons, told The Daily Beast. “Murdo certainly considered Gloria a member of the family.”
In a letter to SLED obtained by The Daily Beast, Hampton County Coroner Angela Topper urged state officials to begin investigating Satterfield’s death due to a “contradiction” surrounding Satterfield.
Topper added that not only was Satterfield’s death not reported to the coroner at the time of her death, but the autopsy was never done.
Alex Madau shooting was a twisted suicide insurance ploy
“The death certificate determined that the method of death was” natural. ” This is inconsistent with being injured in a travel or fall accident, “said Topper. “In light of these contradictions above, I feel it is wise to investigate the death of Gloria Satterfield.”
The investigation will take place just hours after Satterfied’s sons Brian Harriott and Tony Satterfield have filed proceedings against several individuals, including Murdaugh, in connection with a $ 500,000 settlement for their mother’s death.
Murdaugh’s representative did not immediately respond to the comment.
Madau, 53, has been involved in national scrutiny in recent weeks. Most recently, after his former drug dealer was arrested for assisted suicide and the implementation of an insurance system.
On Tuesday, SLED said it had admitted that Murdow had coordinated the September 4 attack. According to Smith’s affidavit of arrest, Murdo hoped that his death would lead to the payment of $ 10 million in insurance that would go to his only surviving son, Buster.
Smith, who was arrested, also acknowledged his role in the plan, police say.
Murdo has reportedly been accused of misappropriating funds by his old law firm since the shooting was staged.
Alex Murdo’s wife Maggie and another son Paul, who had been charged with a fatal boat accident, are revealed just months after being shot and killed in a family estate. No one has been charged in connection with their death.
