03:20
in town so when murder and murdock are put beside each other in the news it gets attention their home or rather one of them is a hunting lodge known as moselle on moesel road a massive 1770 acre property and uh well all eyes turned there on the 7th of june 2021 on that day june the 7th a 9-1-1 call was made it was made by alex
03:59
a police officer from the colton county sheriff's office arrived about 15 minutes later and found at the scene that moselle hunting lodge were maggie alex's wife 52 years old and paul murdock alex's son 22 years old both had been shot to death they were outside the house on the property near the dog kennels a murder mystery playing out behind the gates of this hunting lodge here in colleton county as one of the most high profile families
04:32
in the low country are murdering the loss of a son and his mother the south carolina law enforcement division and colleton county sheriff's investigators have been on scene all day and night looking into a gruesome discovery on moselle road in islandton late last night detectives were called in just after 10 p.m where they found two bodies inside 22-year-old paul murdah and his mother 52-year-old maggie murdoch sled tells news 3 both had at least one gunshot wound according to
05:03
several sources their bodies found by maggie's husband and paul's father richard alexander murdoch now paul murdoch had been in trouble with the law before facing so who would uh want to do this powerful people make enemies when you ask a question like that the list gets along quickly but this was pretty brutal what happened to them and you know i mean powerful people prosecutors they would make enemies but why would you go after a prosecutor's wife and son i mean i could say they've never
05:39
done nothing to nobody be lying because maybe the murdochs had some skeletons in their closet now here is three of them [Music] at the time of his death 22 year old paul was facing a courtroom himself but not like his daddy is granddaddy and his daddy before him no no he was facing felony
06:11
boat related charges mike explained okay in 2019 a 19 year old woman was killed on a boat in south carolina murder what bridges paul what bridge is this hello we're in a boat crash on orchard street okay are you in the water are you we're in the boat because we have someone missing there's six people on board they currently have one missing
06:56
it's uh one female uh that's all the description i have over right now evidently the girl was sitting on her orphan's lap when they hit the bridge at a high rate of speed and now she's missing mallory beach was killed on the 24th of february 2019 while on the murdoch family boat paul murdock seemingly crashed the boat near paris island
07:28
south carolina he had been near drink sailing him mallory beach few other friends had been out on the boat all day until it got into night drinking partied paul murdock was driving the boat apparently before he crashed that night he was hitting the others he was demanding that only he could drive the boat he's acting like a real hate speaking of the dead but kind of an the boat also didn't have working lights they were using like flashlights there were six people in the boat when it crashed at about 1am all
08:00
under 21 years old at the time the boat crashed into a piling at archer's creek bridge they were all thrown out of it swamped ashore all apart from mallory three days of searching still no sign of a teenager thrown overboard into the weekend nineteen-year-old mallory beach hasn't been seen since a boat shoe and five friends were riding on hit a piling in archer's creek rescue crews from beaufort county and paris island have been combing the waters in and around the area paris island even shut down its firing
08:31
range so searchers would be safe she was found seven days later a port royal police report states an officer observed all five were grossly intoxicated beaufort county deputies eventually determined one of two boys were driving paul murdock or connor cook both only 20 years old neither breathalyzed on the scene it seems like the investigation into this was a show from the start from jim street and of course of course swimming investigators
09:01
had ties you know they're in cahoots maybe with the murdoch family paul also wasn't given a sobriety test at the hospital that night something that was allegedly prevented uh by the by his his dad it was two months after the incident before paul was charged with three felony voting under the influence charges apparently there was some confusion as to who was driving the boat at the time but um uh yeah one sheriff's deputy who said it was paul driving the boat
09:32
he just happened to get fired shortly afterwards for alleged drugs charges in may 2019 paul pled not guilty to the charges he is presumed innocent he's pleading not guilty and as a result he should be afforded a a a release on his own recognizance because there is no showing of any of the criteria which would affect that he never spent any time in jail and the criminal case was in no rush to reach the courtroom and apparently
10:04
before he was he was shot dead back in june of 2021 he had received he'd received numerous uh online death uh death threats related you know to that voting voting incident so we can see how a lot of people will be looking towards what happened back in february 2019 when what happened in june 2021 happened now i must say though everybody was on the boat that night back in february they were all dna tested after the shooting in june and uh one of them apparently was tested for gunshot residue on his
10:36
hand i mean the police obviously first thing you're gonna look at is that anybody who was on the boat that night have anything to do with killing paul and his mother maggie next in 2015 a young man 19 year old steven smith was found dead his body was found in the middle of sandy run road on the 8th of july at about 4 am roughly 15 minutes from moselle it was back then determined to be a hit and run right uh but steven smith's mother had
11:08
some she didn't think it was up was it though well steven had a massive head wound his face was covered in blood his right shoulder was partially dislocated he had cuts and bruises on his right hand but his clothing was untouched his car was found three miles away weirdly enough the gas cap was like unscrewed and hanging off the side of the car so at the time it was your theorized while he had been driving he had run out of gas and decided to walk home when he got hit by a car or a
11:40
truck or something what's bizarre though is that they really couldn't tell how he died first they said you know it was a car he got knocked down then they said shooting for some weird reason but they found nothing related to either him being knocked down by a car or being shot or a you know no gun no bullets no tire marks no car as if he had been hit by a car eventually it was ruled a hit and run something the detectives disagreed on but the files i obtained through freedom of information act request
12:10
also show confusion concerning how stephen smith died look at this in initial reports an officer who went to the crime scene said he quote saw no vehicle debris skid marks or injuries consistent with someone being struck by a vehicle in other notes one investigator writes that his captain called him and said this appeared to be a homicide and sled was taking over writing quote i was advised there was a possible gunshot wound to the victim's head then an investigator starts to dig into the autopsy showing smith died from a hit and run he then gets in a
12:41
heated conversation with the doctor who performed the autopsy a timeline helps illustrate the confusion over smith's cause of death again on july 8 an investigator writes the victim may have died from a gunshot wound on july 22nd the investigator approaches the doctor and asks if the victim could have died from a baseball bat rather than a car the doctor told the investigator what killed smith was his job to figure out on august 18th the coroner says he doesn't agree with the doctor's autopsy but when the investigator goes to talk to the doctor
13:12
again he learned she was fired others who were there when the autopsy was performed told the investigator there wasn't any mention of a hit and run when they were doing the autopsy steven was sober clear-headed at the time of his death he wasn't like you know daydreamer or something like that who you know he was aware of his surroundings at all time he wasn't the type who would just walk in front of a car or something now steven was openly gay and he was well liked in town he was studying nursing at the time of his death so how does this link to the murdocks now there have been rumors going around
13:44
in town this is all unconfirmed well that maybe buster paul's brother was intimately involved with steven smith and throughout the investigation tips will come in the murdoch name came up again and again and again however you know after time the case would go cold until get a load of this the murder the double homicide of paul murdoch and maggie murdoch the investigation into steven smith
14:14
would be reopened after that weird timing well the authorities came out and said uh well and i quote the south carolina law enforcement division who are handling the double homicide reopened the investigation into steven smith based on information gathered during the course of the double murder investigation of paul and maggie murdock what it is they found we'll have to wait and see
14:44
and finally in december 2018 alex murdoch paid a settlement to the satterfield estate now who are they it appears well it's kind of unconfirmed as to what her actual relationship to the murdochs was but a woman named gloria satterfield 57 years old she she may have worked as a housekeeper for the murdochs when she had a trip and fall and died on murdoch property this happened back in february 2018 what exactly happened
15:17
is never really come out but alex murdoch paid to her estate and her you know kids half a million dollars a nice uh chunk of change if there was enough there for a civil suit and he had to pay out half a million dollars does it well there's every man you mentioned of a criminal one so we don't really know what happened apparently she loved the murdocks like family others disagreed with that statement so yeah that is three mysterious debts linked to the one family the murdoch family
15:50
who then were had had a double homicide in this one there's a lot of we're rich so uh go yourself [Music] so back to june 2021 on the murders of paul and maggie shell casings were discovered at the scene and it seems that two weapons may have been used a shotgun to kill paul and an assault rifle to kill maggie they were shot to death 30 to 60 minutes before they were found sometime between 9 and 9 30 that night apparently the day
16:25
after the murders maggie's phone was found along a rural road somewhere in ireland as if it had been ditched maybe by the killer or killers it also seems very likely that the investigators discovered dna related to the killer because remember they tested the other people involved in a boat crash so they were obviously trying to do a comparison it's also been rumored that a weapon was discovered at the scene belonging to the killer either the shotgun or the assault rifle or maybe another one two vehicles were also found at the scene one towed back to the lab for
16:58
evidence a bit of a snoop around what kind of vehicle i don't know they haven't said alex by the way you know the dad who found them uh he was ruled out he didn't kill his wife and son he was actually with his his dying father at the hospital at the time see a couple of days after the murders ran off to third passed away from natural causes it's understood he had been ill for some time [Music] the murdoch family since announced there is a one hundred thousand dollar reward for any
17:31
information that leads to an arrest in this double homicide [Music] this morning members of the murdoch family speaking for the first time since their brother alec murdock found his 22 year old son paul and his wife maggie shot to death outside their south carolina home last week i got a call from ellie monday night and as soon as i hit the phone i knew something was wrong there's information however big or however small it is did they have any enemies i really don't
18:11
know of any enemies you hear all this talk on the you know social media with regard to paul but i don't know of anybody no that would truly it would truly be an enemy i truly want to harm them the murdoch's telling us paul had been receiving threats from strangers people they say they didn't know were they you know violent threats i didn't think it was a credible threat if it was i would have tried to do something or notified someone but i guess
18:42
you know maybe i made a mistake i see words like dynasty used and power and i don't know exactly how people use those words but we're just regular people and we're hurting just like they would be hurting if this had happened to them to date though that's um that's all we really know whether this will ever be solved that's a big question mark no suspects have been publicly identified no people of interest no leads
19:17
in fact the police are very they're very zip to lip on this entire case as i said with all those skeletons in the closet good reason reports that have been released are heavily redacted as you can imagine so information is slowly trickling out at the moment [Music] and so as i said from their questions remain was paul the intended target was it related to that boat crash where mallory beach was killed because he was drink boating
19:47
it's scary it's a murder mystery eric but uh when you connected to dodge here the fact that uh paul had been charged in this on the death of mallory beach the authorities there in south carolina are trying to see if there's a nexus between that incident and the death of paul or muay thai or what we do know is that paul murtagh allegedly was shot
20:18
with a shotgun and his mother maggie murkow was shot with an assault weapon he'd also been receiving quite a number of uh threats before well very his uncle said they hadn't been taking them seriously was maggie then killed because she was just there why were two guns used were there two shooters or one guy came in like commando that the record show by the way pretty much everything i've said is subject to change uh the police like i said have been releasing jack it's been a very slow trickle of information out there
20:50
there's a lot of rumors and conjecture even the three previous deaths which are linked to the family and are all very mysterious are all sort of up in the air there is a giant mystery surrounding this entire case when i i hope we get to the bottom of but we may never there's enough twists and turns here to to rank up a shitload of based on tv shows and movies there's a lot of uh theories out there as you can imagine i'm not going to get into them um i think it'd be kind of wrong to do so
21:21
but i hopefully will have more than series soon but one thing does feel real the murdocks with all of their things going on it seemed like they had free reign in town you know they were above the lot good old boys you know evidently someone disagreed it's still tragic it doesn't make any of this right but um in this case everything is wrong [Music] thank you so much for watching i really
21:53
i really appreciate you taking the time to be here with me here go on i'll see you as always real soon in the next one until then please take care of yourselves i love [Music] you you
