Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal, a wild true crime show, just came out on Netflix. It follows the strange murder cases involving the Murdaugh family, and one member of the family, Buster Murdaugh, is still at the center of it all.
Alex Murdaugh is on trial for killing his wife and son, and he is also facing a number of other charges. The case is still going on. The Murdaughs was one of the most powerful families in South Carolina, but when Mallory Beach, a teen, died in a drunken boating accident, their legacy began to fall apart.
Mallory Beach died in 2019 after the Murdaugh family boat crashed. Paul Murdaugh, who is the brother of Buster and the son of Alex Murdaugh, was supposed “out of his mind drunk” when he was driving the boat when it crashed. But Paul and his mother were found dead while they were still waiting to be tried. Now, Alex is being tried for killing his wife and son.
Buster has been asked to testify in his father Alex’s trial because there is so much going on in the case. But besides that, what else is Buster Murdaugh doing?
Where is Buster Murdaugh now?
Buster, who is now 26 years old, has lived a pretty quiet life while his father has been in court. He went to court to defend his father, who says he didn’t do anything wrong. He said his dad was “heartbroken” when the murders happened.
Buster went to law school because his family had always done that. He was kicked out, though. He was getting a law degree at the University of South Carolina, but he was kicked out after he copied someone else’s work. The Post and Courier said that Buster’s family tried to pay $60,000 to get him back into school, but he still hasn’t gone.
People say that Buster had been living with his girlfriend and working at the family law firm. He decided not to go back to the house where his brother’s and mother’s bodies had been found. He lives with his girlfriend, Brooklynn White, on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina. Buster bought them a condo in 2021, and both of them work for a law firm.
Since Mallory died on the family boat, the Murdaughs has been in talks with the Beach family. They recently settled on a “significant amount” of money, which reportedly took Buster’s name out of the case.
