Aggie and Paul Murdaugh were both shot and killed on June 7, 2021, but their deaths remain unsolved to this day. The double homicide that took place that day has not been resolved.
Since Alex Murdaugh’s wife and youngest son were killed in unexplained circumstances on the first anniversary of the killings, no arrests have been made in one of South Carolina’s most high-profile unsolved murder investigations. The Murdaugh family murder remains one of the most high-profile unsolved murder investigations in the state.
On June 7, 2021, the bodies of Murdaugh’s college sweetheart Maggie Murdaugh, 52, and his youngest son Paul Murdaugh, 22, were discovered on their enormous 1,700-acre Moselle home in rural Colleton County, South Carolina’s Lowcountry. Maggie was Murdaugh’s college sweetheart, and Paul was his youngest son.
“A member of the police force and an ambulance are required immediately! My wife and my child have been the target of gunfire.” Alex Murdaugh screams at the operator while he is on the phone with 911 in an attempt to get aid as quickly as possible. “It’s gotten to the point where I can’t take it anymore; it’s terrible.”
When the operator asks where his wife and son are, he replies, “They’re on the ground out at my kennels.” He goes on to explain that neither of his family members is still alive. “I have been absent for some time at this point. Just now I got back… Could you pick up the pace?”
