FBI investigating SC lawyer Alex Murdaugh for financial crimes, says attorneys
Murdaugh is accused of stealing $3.4 million from the estate of his deceased housekeeper Gloria Satterfield.
According to Fox News, the attorney for Satterfield’s estate, Eric Bland, said he met with federal investigators multiple times concerning Murdaugh and his alleged financial dealings.
Murdaugh’s defense attorney, Jim Griffin, also confirmed that he spoke to federal investigators in early October, as well as “by some prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney’s office.”
This comes as Satterfield’s sons are expected to file three separate civil motions asking a judge to freeze the assets of Murdaugh’s only surviving son, Buster Murdaugh, who was recently photographed gambling in Las Vegas.
Buster Murdaugh was recently appointed as his father’s power of attorney, which gives him control of all of his father’s assets.
Murdaugh is allegedly being investigated by numerous state entities in South Carolina concerning his financial dealings, as well as those of his deceased son Paul.
Paul Murdaugh was murdered outside his parent’s home, alongside his mother Maggie.
Alex Murdaugh denies having any involvement in the death of his son and wife.
The double-murder remains unsolved.
