(TheConservativeTimes.org) – Convicted murderer Alex Murdaugh’s huge South Carolina home, featured in his trial, is on the market again for $1.95 million. The four-bedroom, 4-1/2-bathroom house has been advertised twice in one year.
In March, James Ayer and Jeffrey Godley bought the 1,772-acre Moselle Farm for $3.9 million and decided to sell the farmhouse and some acreage. The canine kennels where Murdaugh shot his 52-year-old spouse Maggie and their 22-year-old son Paul in June 2021 are not in the plan.
Buster Murdaugh, Murdaugh’s surviving son, earned $530,000 from the initial sale, with the balance going to creditors and plaintiffs of a boat crash that killed a woman in 2019.
Murdaugh, a prominent lawyer, was found guilty of murdering his wife, Maggie, and son, Paul. The incident received much media attention because of how violent it was. Despite his initial denials, the police were able to prove that he was on his property during the incident in question. Murdaugh’s confession raised questions about his alibi.
Before convicting him of two murders and other felonies, jurors in Murdaugh’s murder case in Walterboro, South Carolina, were given a tour of the extravagant estate. The jury watched as the detectives gathered over 30 family weapons from the sportsman’s room in a fruitless hunt for the murder weapon.
A report showed in February 2018 that Murdaugh’s longtime maid, Gloria Satterfield, tripped and collapsed on brick stairs that led to the front entry. She died a few weeks later. Murdaugh allegedly encouraged her children to sue him, and Murdaugh pocketed four million dollars in insurance money.
According to a report, during his trial, prosecutors said Alex Murdaugh had murdered his wife and children to cover up his multimillion-dollar embezzlement. He was terrified of the repercussions of having his unlawful operations exposed.
The prosecution used Murdaugh’s familiarity with criminal proceedings as evidence that he arranged the killings so the victims would be present at the family’s home on June 7, 2021. He received a five-year sentence enhancement for two charges of weapon usage during a violent offense. Murdaugh was found guilty of both crimes and now serves two consecutive life terms.
He has been incarcerated in a South Carolina supermax since March of 2023.
