Alex Murdaugh surrenders in alleged botched insurance fraud scheme

Disgraced South Carolina lawyer Alex Murdaugh surrendered to authorities Thursday over an alleged insurance fraud scheme in which he is accused of hiring a hit man to kill him.

Murdaugh, 53, was driven into the Hampton County Detention Center before noon to face a bail hearing in his fraud case Thursday afternoon, local WCBD-TV reported.

The fallen lawyer is accused of hiring alleged drug dealer and former client Curtis Edward Smitt to off him in what ended up being a botched hit so that Murdaugh’s son could collect a $10 million insurance payout.

The roadside plot was only the latest bizarre twist in a Murdaugh family saga that includes his wife and another son being shot dead in June.
