Alex Murdaugh said, ‘I got a bad feeling,’ after Snapchat video surfaced, housekeeper says
Blanca Simpson, the Murdaugh family’s former housekeeper, testified Friday that Alex Murdaugh told her, “I got a bad feeling,” after a Snapchat video his son, Paul Murdaugh, took about an hour before his murder surfaced.
The disgraced attorney is charged with fatally shooting his wife, Maggie Murdaugh, and Paul on evening of June 7, 2021.
In August 2021, Alex asked Simpson if she remembered the shirt he wore on the morning of the murders, which she found unusual.
“He was pacing back and forth in the living room, and he said, ‘I got a bad feeling. I got a bad feeling. Something’s not right.’ And then he said, ‘Well, you know, there…was a video that was out.’ I hadn’t seen the video. He said, ‘You remember what shirt I was wearing. It was a [Vineyard] Vines shirt,” Simpson began.
She continued: “In my mind, I was saying I don’t remember a [Vineyard] Vines shirt. It was the polo shirt. … I didn’t say anything, but I was kind of thrown back because I don’t remember him wearing that shirt that day. I remember what shirt he was wearing because I fixed the collar.”
Alex was wearing a white, Hanes t-shirt and cargo shorts on the evening of June 7, 2021, when his wife, Maggie, and son, Paul, were found dead near dog kennels on his hunting estate around 10 p.m.
But Simpson said Alex was wearing a “sea foam” polo the morning of the murders. Alex can be seen wearing a blue-ish polo in the Snapchat video taken about an hour before his wife and son’s murders.
South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) officials testified earlier this week that they found gunshot residue on Alex’s white t-shirt and cargo shorts from the evening of June 7, 2021.
