True Crime Fans: The Murdaugh Family Estate Is Selling For $3.9 Million

The South Carolina hunting farm where Maggie Murdaugh and her son, Paul Murdaugh, were found shot to death has been listed for $3.9 million. The Murdaughs were found dead on the property on June 7, 2021, following Paul's trial for the murder of Mallory Beach while operating the boat that killed her while under the influence of alcohol. There has not been an arrest for the Murdaugh murders. Alex Murdaugh, Maggie's husband and Paul's father, is suspected in connection with their deaths, though.

The former lawyer is currently facing 71 charges for stealing a suspected $8.5 million from families he represented in wrongful death and wreck cases, per the New York Post. He allegedly encouraged clients to accept cash settlements, which he would put into his own account. He is currently in jail with bail set at $7 million.

Sources have also told Fits News that there is "substantial and serious" forensic evidence at the scene of Maggie and Paul's deaths that points to Alex. Alex allegedly also hired a hitman to kill him so his living son, Buster Murdaugh, could collect the life insurance settlement of $10 million, which the hitman (his cousin) failed at completing (via the New York Post).

A look at the Murdaugh hunting farm

According to the New York Post, the Murdaugh home was custom built in 2011, around the time the alleged financial swindling and fraud from Alex Murdaugh began. And, while the nearly 1,800-acre property has had offers, it is currently being held in contention by South Carolina courts. A month before it was listed, Mallory Beach's parents sued the Murdaugh estate, stating they believe the Murdaugh family were not only complicit, but "willful contributors" in Paul Murdaugh's drinking.

This is not the first fatal accident the estate has seen, though. In 2018, the Murdaugh's housekeeper of over 20 years, Gloria Satterfield, was found dead in an alleged accidental fall (per the New York Post).

The estate itself is a hunting farm called Cross Swamp Farm, and is located next to the Salkehatchie River in South Carolina. The home itself is over 5,200 square feet with four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, but can be remodeled to sleep 15 people. There is also an 1,140-square-foot cottage on the property.
