South Carolina authorities have recently announced that they have made significant progress in the homicide probe of Stephen Smith, who was found dead on a rural road in Hampton County in July 2015.
Pathologist Erin Presnell determined that Smith died in a hit-and-run, just miles from the Murdaugh family’s hunting estate known as Moselle. Smith was widely rumored to be the lover of Buster Murdaugh, the son of Alex Murdaugh.
The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) opened a homicide investigation into Smith’s death in June 2021, about two weeks after Alex Murdaugh fatally shot his wife Maggie and his son, Paul.
The investigation into Smith’s death was reopened following a request from the Hampton County Sheriff’s Office, and the authorities have been making progress in the case.
The investigation into Stephen Smith’s death is just the latest in a series of high-profile incidents involving the Murdaugh family. Alex Murdaugh is a prominent attorney from a well-known legal family in the state of South Carolina, and his family has a long history of involvement in local politics and law enforcement.
The murders of Maggie and Paul Murdaugh shocked the community, and the subsequent revelations about the Murdaugh family have only added to the sense of unease.
The rumors about Stephen Smith’s relationship with Buster Murdaugh have only added to the speculation about the Murdaugh family’s secrets.
The fact that Smith was found dead just miles from the Murdaugh family estate has only added to the suspicion that the Murdaughs may have been involved in his death.
The progress that has been made in the investigation into Smith’s death is welcome news for those who have been following the case closely. It is unclear at this point what new evidence or information has come to light, but the fact that the investigation is ongoing is a positive sign.
It is important that justice is done for Stephen Smith and his family, and that the truth about his death is finally uncovered.
The investigation into Stephen Smith’s death is just one part of a larger, ongoing investigation into the Murdaugh family.
The authorities are still trying to piece together what happened on the night that Maggie and Paul Murdaugh were killed, and there are likely many more questions that need to be answered.
