SLED investigates Alex Murdaugh for allegedly misusing regulation agency’s funds
BEAUFORT, S.C. (WSAV) – State investigators are actually wanting into allegations in opposition to Alex Murdaugh by his household regulation agency.
Murdaugh — who has since been ousted by his household agency — is accused of taking tens of millions from Peters, Murdaugh, Parker, Eltzroth, and Detrick (PMPED).
His legal professional not too long ago mentioned Murdaugh is “deeply sorry” and plans to repay all the misappropriated funds.
The top of the South Carolina Legislation Enforcement Division (SLED) launched the next assertion Monday after the company introduced the open investigation:
As Chief of SLED, I proceed to induce the general public to be affected person and let this investigation take its course.
Investigative choices we make all through this case and any probably associated case should in the end face up to the scrutiny of the felony justice course of.
As with all circumstances, SLED is dedicated to conducting an expert, thorough, and neutral felony investigation, regardless of the place the information lead us.

Murdaugh introduced he was resigning from the agency and getting into rehab after being shot in Hampton County on Saturday, Sept. 4.
The South Carolina Supreme Courtroom then indefinitely suspended the legal professional’s regulation license.
This follows the June 7 homicide of Murdaugh’s son and spouse.
