One of Alex Murdaugh’s brothers recently broke his silence to say that he believes the ex-attorney and convicted double murderer is still lying about what happened to his slain wife and son.
Speaking with the New York Times, Randy Murdaugh said he is certain that his brother is a liar and a thief but he still struggles with believing he is a double murderer.
Unlike his brother, John Marvin Murdaugh, Randy did not testify during the high-profile trial which ended with Alex receiving two consecutive life sentences.
“He knows more than what he’s saying,” Randy told the New York Times. “He’s not telling the truth, in my opinion, about everything there.”
Randy also told the news outlet that three months after the murders, he and other law partners confronted Alex about missing funds from the firm.
Alex allegedly admitted to stealing from them and his clients and blamed it on a painkiller addiction. Less than a day later, Alex allegedly had ex-client Eddie Smith shoot him in the head in a botched suicide-for-hire plot.
Randy said that in the weeks following the murders he called around to try to find out why Paul and Maggie were killed, which was something Alex never did.
The New York Times said that the rest of the Murdaughs are supporting Buster, who is now without a father in addition to a mother and brother. Randy is currently representing some of Alex’s former clients.
Randy did not attend every day of the six-week trial. While Alex took the stand in his own defense, Randy was in another courtroom advocating for a family Alex previously represented — which entailed going through the painstaking process of ensuring they were not among his jailed brother’s victims.
“I hoped that after the trial, because there’s nothing more that can be presented, that I’d stop thinking about this,” he told The New York Times. “But so far, that has not been the case.”
