DAREDEVIL CONSPIRACY: Lawyer Arrange For A Former Client To Kill Him So As To Collect $10 million In Life Insurance For His Son

Published

on

More evidence is now emerging of a prominent South Carolina lawyer who arranged with a hitman to shoot him in the head so his only surviving son could collect a life insurance payout of about $10 million.

court documents have now revealed how Alex Murdaugh, 53, who was shot in the head on a roadway on September 4 but survived, had planned and executed his own near-death horror.

For a man whose wife and son was shot and killed three months ago, and a family spokesperson had previously blamed his shooting on an unidentified man in a blue truck, Murdaugh has admitted to authorities on Monday that he had conspired with the man to kill him as part of a suicidal fraud scheme, according to an affidavit to support charges against the alleged gunman, CNN reports. Murdaugh allegedly provided Smith, a 61-year-old from Colleton County, with a firearm and directed Smith to shoot him in the head, the affidavit states

CNN reports further that the shooter, 61 years old Curtis Edward Smith has now been charged with assisted suicide, assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, pointing and presenting a firearm, insurance fraud and conspiracy to commit insurance fraud, according to the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED).

Court documents also show that Murdaugh, an attorney, had previously represented Smith, the shooter, in unrelated court proceedings, and Murdaugh’s lawyer, Harpootlian, who represents him because he is being charged as a co-defendant in the affidavit says his client was depressed and suicidal due to the recent death of his wife, son and elderly father, as well as his struggles with opioid addiction. The lawyer said:

“For the last 20 years, there have been many people feeding his addiction to opioids, during that time, these individuals took advantage of his addiction and his ability to pay substantial funds for illegal drugs. One of those individuals took advantage of his mental illness and agreed to take Alex’s life, by shooting him in the head.”

His attorney further said Murdaugh decided to end his own life but believed his life insurance policy had a suicide exclusion.

Harpootlian said Murdaugh’s scheme “was an attempt on his part to do something to protect his child,” Buster, his eldest and only living child.
