Murdaugh Sheds Wiki – Murdaugh Sheds Biography
Buster Murdaugh took the stand in the murder trial of his father, Alex Murdaugh, and testified about learning that his mother and brother had been murdered. Buster, 26, began his testimony Tuesday morning. Wearing a white button-down shirt and black blazer, he remained mostly emotionless as he testified, except when asked about the night his mother, Maggie, and his brother, Paul, were shot to death.
Struggling back tears, Buster told jurors that his father called him on June 7, 2021. “He said ‘are you sitting down?'” Buster testified. “It sounded weird, and then he told me that my mother and brother had been shot.” Buster testified that he and his girlfriend immediately got in the car and drove to the family property from his home in Rock Hill, South Carolina, approximately 200 miles away.
