Newly released audio from a police dashcam video reveals a distraught Anthony Cook screaming at “grossly intoxicated” Paul Murdaugh, the night Murdaugh allegedly drove a boat into a bridge piling killing Cook’s girlfriend. 19-year-old Mallory Beach was tossed from the boat in the crash. Her body was found a week later.
Paul Murdaugh was awaiting trial on boating under the influence charges for the February 2019 crash. The state of South Carolina has now dropped charges against Paul Murdaugh, a move that was prompted by Murdaugh’s own death. Murdaugh, 22, and his 52-year-old mother were fatally shot June 7 on the family’s vast estate in Colleton County. That case remains under investigation and no one has been arrested in connection with it.
