Buster is also suspected of a mysterious death, although nothing has ever come of it. With his father now on trial.
Where now is Buster Murdaugh?
On February 21, 2023, Buster testified as a witness during his father’s trial. He testified that he talked with his parents and brother virtually daily on the phone and that his father contacted him the night of the murders to inform him that he was on his way to check on his sick mother. Prosecutors claim that the conversation came after his wife and children had already been killed and were an effort to provide an alibi.
Also, Buster said that his father contacted him twice to alert him of the deaths. He remembered, “I simply sat there for a minute.” “I was stunned.” He testified that he spent most of the subsequent weeks with his father and seldom left sight.
After the killings, they remained at numerous relatives’ houses, including Maggie’s parents’ home.

In response to a question posed by Alex’s attorney Jim Griffin, Buster said that his family handled arguments “like grownups” and never violently.
