Buster Murdaugh, the sole surviving son of Alex Murdaugh, who was sentenced to life in prison Friday for murdering his wife and kid, was calm and composed during the trial and when he testified on behalf of his father.
Yet the 26-year-old has a wilder side that was displayed just two months after his family was slaughtered, according to someone who knows the family.
The source told The Post that Alex, his brother Randolph “Randy” Murdaugh IV, other members of the PMPED law firm and Buster showed up at the annual South Carolina Association for Justice convention in Hilton Head in August 2021 and most of them got “very drunk.”

While it was previously reported that Randy and Buster were present, the insider stated he saw Alex, who was president of the group in 2016, there as well.
“They showed up en masse, and a lot of them got very drunk, including Buster,” the source said. “It got bad enough that some of us had to leave and go upstairs to get away from them. We didn’t want to wind up in some brawl under a pile of Murdaughs.”
“It was kind of surprising to see,” he added. “Your whole family has just been slaughtered and you should be worried about assassins lurking around every corner but instead you’re whooping it up and drinking.”
Buster was also spotted with his uncle John Marvin Murdaugh at a casino table in Las Vegas in October 2021. In a jailhouse call, he later complained to his father that his image had been taken, and Alex encouraged him to “start wearing a hat” in public.
