Law firm: the lawyer whose wife and son were killed took money

Law firm: the lawyer whose wife and son were killed took money

“This is disappointing news for all of us. Rest assured that our firm will deal with this in a straightforward manner. There’s no place in our firm for such behavior,” the law firm said in a statement. Hours before Murdaugh sent out his own statement, saying he regretted decisions he made, but didn’t give any details just two days after reporting someone shot at him after his car had a flat tire along a rural road in Hampton County.

The statement from PMPED law firm came hours after Alex Murdaugh said he was resigning and entering rehab. The PMPED law firm said it will hire an accounting firm to fully review its books. It didn’t say how much money might be missing, but said Murdaugh was no longer associated with them in any way. “The murders of my wife and son have caused an incredibly difficult time in my life. I have made a lot of decisions that I truly regret. I’m resigning from my law firm and entering rehab after a long battle that has been exacerbated by these murders. I am immensely sorry to everyone I’ve hurt including my family, friends and colleagues. I ask for prayers as I rehabilitate myself and my relationships,” read Murdaugh’s entire statement.

The statement came two days after investigators said Murdaugh was able to call 911 after he was hurt Saturday afternoon on Salkehatchie Road in Hampton County. “Alex resigned after being accused of diverting lawyer fees from the firm,” said Murdaugh’s attorney Jim Griffin. “These allegations prompted him to confront a dependency and he voluntarily checked into an in-patient substance abuse rehab facility after being discharged from the hospital today.”

The State Law Enforcement Division didn’t immediately comment Monday on Murdaugh’s statement or the law firm’s accusations of missing money. South Carolina’s state police are also the lead agency investigating the deaths of Maggie Murdaugh, 52, and her 22-year-old son Paul on June 7. Both were both shot several times and found outside the family’s home in nearby Colleton County, authorities said. Alex Murdaugh found the bodies of his wife and son after family members said he had been away checking on his mother and ailing father.

A family attorney said Murdaugh was shot at by someone in a pickup truck that first passed by him as he changed the tire and then came back and fired at him. The family issued a statement Saturday after the shooting saying Murdaugh was expected to recover and asking for privacy. “The Murdaugh family has suffered through more than any one family can ever imagine,” it read.
