Alex Murdaugh Wiki – Alex Murdaugh Biography

In a recent court document, a state forensics expert revealed the gruesome injuries Alex Murdaugh is suspected of inflicting on his 22-year-old son, Paul Murdaugh, after shooting him twice on the family’s sprawling South Carolina property.

According to a statement made in an affidavit by state forensics expert Dr. Kenneth Kinsey, the second shot penetrated Paul Murdaugh’s left shoulder before striking his neck and brain. According to Kinsey’s assessment, his “brain was completely severed from his head,” which would have resulted in sudden death, Fox News reported.

On the family property in Moselle, South Carolina, Paul Murdaugh was struck in the chest for the first time while he was standing in the feeding room attached to the kennels. About 30 yards from Paul, his mother, Maggie Murdaugh, died after receiving five gunshot wounds, including one to the back of the head.


According to expert Kinsey, Alex’s wife, Maggie, was discovered “a short distance away” in a shed and there were no signs that her body had been relocated. She fired five shots at him, two of which would have been fatal. The forensic expert believed that two of the fatal shots were fired while she was “upside down or nearly upside down”, while the other three shots were fired while she was upright. One probably came from behind and the other from the other side.

According to a December report, the expert’s description was accurate. “His head blew up like a watermelon,” a person who saw the crime scene footage told the news outlet about Paul’s injuries. “I mean, you can see his face, but the rest, his head, just disappeared. Totally empty,” according to FitsNews.


Kinsey’s statement was included in a motion filed by Alex Murdaugh’s lawyers on Tuesday, January 17, asking Judge Clifton Newman to bar a blood spatter expert from testifying for the prosecution at his impending trial. Tom Bevel, an Oklahoma-based forensic specialist, was hired by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) to examine a white T-shirt Alex Murdaugh was wearing on the night of the murders. In an earlier petition, defense attorneys Jim Griffin and Dick Harpootlian contended that the blood on the garment was transferred when Murdaugh discovered the victims and “frantically checked them for signs of life.”

Bevel’s initial assessment indicated that the stains were “consistent with transfers and not spatter from a gunshot wound”, but he later stated that the jersey is “stained with high velocity blood spatter as a result of shooting Maggie and Paul”. . Murdaugh’s lawyers alleged that SLED “pressured” Bevel to review his report.
