Lawyers: Alex Murdaugh Lied About Dogs Causing Housekeeper’s Death
Richard “Alex” Murdaugh, who was sentenced to life in prison for the murders of wife Maggie Murdaugh and son Paul Murdaugh, has made a bombshell confession with regard to a life insurance fraud lawsuit filed against him in connection with the death of his longtime housekeeper.
In a May 1 response to Nautilus Insurance Company’s filing, Murdaugh’s lawyers stated that their client lied when he said Gloria Satterfield, 57, had tripped over his family’s dogs when she fell on his property in 2018, NBC News reported.
“No dogs were involved in the fall of Gloria Satterfield on February 2, 2018,” the attorneys said in the legal filing, adding that after Satterfield’s death, Murdaugh “invented Ms. Satterfield’s purported statement that dogs caused her to fall to force his insurers to make a settlement payment.”
However, according to his May 1 response, Murdaugh “denies the existence of any conspiracy to improperly cause Nautilus to pay a fraudulent claim.”
