It was a class excursion to a deserted town. The procession gently turned up the long driveway of the magnificent property off a rural road. The jury for Alex Murdaugh’s double homicide trial was kept in the convoy.
The Murdaugh family’s hunting cabin is called “Moselle” and belongs to Alex, his wife Maggie, and their sons Paul and Buster.
The little feed room and dog kennels where Paul was shot with a shotgun at close range were shown to the jury. Maggie has shot multiple times with a 300 rifle from a short distance away. Both weapons have never been located.
This estate once served as a symbol of the legal dynasty of the Murdaughs’ immense power and prominence. The wilted grounds now appear to reflect Alex Murdaugh’s precipitous decline from prominence: from a wealthy, influential lawyer to an admitted drug user, robber, and murderer.
On June 7, 2021, this is where Alex Murdaugh’s life fell apart.
911 OPERATOR: What’s your emergency?
ALEX MURDAUGH: This is Alex Murdaugh. My wife and child have been shot badly.
When Murdaugh was questioned by detectives that evening, he was ready to provide an explanation for the deaths of his wife and son.

There was a time when his estate reflected the vast power and prestige of the Murdaugh legal dynasty. Now, the withered grounds seem to echo Alex Murdaugh’s steep fall from grace. https://t.co/YLDUHPyqrX
