Thursday evening, the jury in the highly watched Alex Murdaugh trial reached verdicts rather quickly. It didn’t go well for Murdaugh.
From Sarah Arnold at Townhall:
After less than three hours of deliberating, jurors found disgraced lawyer Alex Murdaugh guilty on all counts in the murders of his wife and son.
The guilty verdict was found in Walterboro, South Carolina, 20 months after the June 2021 fatal shootings of Murdaugh’s wife, Maggie, 52, and their youngest son, Paul, 22, near the dog kennels on the family’s rural estate.
Alex Murdaugh shot his wife with a rifle and his son with a shotgun.
Murdaugh came under scrutiny after he seemed to have stolen funds from his law firm and admitted to staging his own suicide attempt, trying to make it appear to be a homicide so that his surviving son could inherit a life insurance policy.
Murdaugh will be sentenced Friday morning. In the meantime, O.J. Simpson has offered an opinion about all this. Why? Because why not.

And after the verdict came a bit of a Howard Cosell’s Frazier/Foreman flair:

As have we all (cue eye roll).
It’s too bad you guys couldn’t look for the real killers together.

This what you call expert opinion when it comes to getting away with double murder. https://t.co/kAemKe1r6T

Every time I think the #MurdaughTrial and circumstances surrounding this case can't get any crazier, some new thing pops up and says: "hold my beer"…

Good suggestion, but too late.
