Shocking Images Revealed: Gruesome Maggie Murdaugh Autopsy Photos Trending on Twitter

The judge in Alex Murdaugh’s murder trial slammed the courtroom gallery on Friday, saying that a spectator leaked a gruesome autopsy photo that wasn’t supposed to be seen by the public. However, The Post has found that the photo was accidentally shown in a livestream by WGN News.

Judge Clifton Newman talked about the photos after giving Murdaugh two life sentences for killing his wife, Maggie and son Paul in 2021.

As Per Report

“There is a complaint now regarding the posting of autopsy photographs. They came from within the courtroom, based on the direction of the photographs,” Newman said.

The gruesome picture shows Maggie Murdaugh dead with a cut just below her left ear.

“It did not come from the audience, it came somehow from within the well of the court,” Newman said.

As the fact Mentioned above The Post found that WGN News showed the picture on a Tuesday, 28 Feb 2023 livestream.

Sick trolls then took screenshots and started sharing them on internet message boards.

The picture was shown on one of the prosecution’s screens during the state’s closing arguments. When Dr. Ellen Reimer, a pathologist from the Medical University of South Carolina, went back to the stand to talk about the autopsy, a prosecuting attorney lifted the screen’s cover, revealing the photo.

A spokesperson for WGN said in a statement:

“During Tuesday’s hearing the pool camera reacted slowly during the presentation of certain photographic evidence, which was visible at a distance on-air for a few seconds.

“WGN-TV did not operate the pool camera, and we have since removed the video from our streaming platforms.”

Alex Murdaugh got two life sentences in prison for killing his wife and son.

Newman compared the leak to Vanessa Bryant’s recent lawsuit against LA County, in which she won $29 million because sheriff’s and fire department employees shared photos of the helicopter crash that killed her husband Kobe Bryant and daughter Gianna.

As Mention above-

“One of the reasons we sought to seal graphic photos, because the parties have a right to privacy, a right to those matters not being publicly disclosed,” Newman said.

“If anyone has heard about the recent settlement that … Kobe Bryant’s wife just made with Los Angeles County and others out there over certain disclosures of information involving the death of Kobe Bryant — liability can be substantial and it’s a risk for the most part that’s not worth taking.”

“We will let everyone judge themselves accordingly within that regard,” he concluded.
