According to reports, Satterfield was killed in 2018 when he was a guest at the home of Murdaugh. He is alleged to have stumbled and fallen while there.
The family of Gloria Satterfield, who worked as a maid for Alex Murdaugh before he was disbarred, has given the South Carolina police permission to exhume Gloria’s body as part of their investigation into the circumstances surrounding her passing. The investigation is being conducted as part of the investigation into the circumstances surrounding Alex Murdaugh’s disbarment.
The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) has confirmed in a statement that it has obtained permission to exhume Gloria Satterfield’s remains from her family. This approval was required to exhume her body. This authorization was attained with the assistance of the family’s legal counsel. The News God was provided with the message.
In the year 2018, the body of Satterfield was found at the residence of Murdaugh, following what is thought to have been a fall. Since the Murdaughs had moved into their current home twenty years ago, they had kept the same housekeeper there.
Last year, in response to a request from the Hampton County coroner, the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) announced that it had initiated a criminal investigation into the death of Satterfield due to disparities uncovered during other ongoing investigations into wrongdoings committed by Murdaugh. These discrepancies had been discovered during other investigations into whether or not Murdaugh had committed illegal acts.
It is said that the request that the coroner made to SLED at the time showed that “the decedent’s death was neither documented nor was an autopsy done.” This is something that has been alleged. The fact that the individual was hurt in an event that involved a trip and fall is incongruous with the fact that the cause of death was described as “natural” on the death certificate. The cause of death was listed as “natural” on the death certificate.
