Who is Randy Murdaugh? Alex Murdaugh’s brother

The older brother of Alex Murdaugh believes the convicted killer is still lying about the brutal killings of his wife and son.

“He knows more than what he’s saying,” Randy Murdaugh, 56, told The New York Times of his drug-addicted, serial-lying brother who still denies gunning down wife Maggie, 52, and son Paul, 22.

“He’s not telling the truth, in my opinion, about everything there.”

Randy’s admission is in sharp contrast to a claim by his 54-year-old brother’s defense team that the whole family was “more convinced” of the disgraced legal scion’s innocence after his six-week trial.

“The not knowing … is the worst thing there is,” Randy said of his ongoing doubts about his brother, who is serving two life sentences for the June 7, 2021, double murder.

Randy made the same observations that Marian Proctor, Maggie’s sister, made during her testimony about how she thought it was odd that Murdaugh “never talked about finding” the murderer.

Additionally, Randy claimed that, in contrast to his brother, he “spent considerable time, day after day for weeks on end, calling people” in search of any potential leads.

The distressed brother, however, told the Times that he could not imagine his younger sibling being able to shoot his wife and blow one of his two sons to death.

Given the barrage of outrageous lies his brother has since admitted to, including lying for 20 months about being at the scene of his wife and son’s murders, Randy said he now wonders if he ever truly knew his brother.

For the murders of his wife and son, Alex Murdaugh received two life sentences.

At their prestigious South Carolina family law firm, where they both worked closely, Randy confronted Alex about stealing from the business months after the murders.

According to his brother, Alex admitted to stealing millions and blamed it on his recurrent opioid addiction.

When Alex told Randy that he had been shot on the side of the road in what he later admitted was a set-up for a life insurance scam, Randy claimed that Alex immediately broke his promise to never lie to his brother again.

Randy did not attend every day of the trial, in contrast to their other siblings, younger brother John Marvin Murdaugh and sister Lynn Murdaugh Goettee.

Randy explained to the Times that he even showed up in court to clean up his brother’s mess while he was on trial nearby. This was done, at least in part, to deal with the damage his brother’s lies and thefts caused.

He recalled having to tell clients, “Listen, I’m not him,” in an effort to reassure them. I have always done things the right way.

“After six weeks of trial, [the Murdaugh family] came away more convinced that he did not do this, and they are steadfastly in his camp and support him,” Griffin claimed.

Instead, Randy hasn’t spoken to his brother in almost a year and is still traumatised by the horrific killings.

“I hoped that after the trial, because there’s nothing more that can be presented, that I’d stop thinking about this,” he said. “But so far, that has not been the case.”
