In an explosive interview with FOX News anchor Martha MacCallum, Buster Murdaugh, the son of convicted murderer Alex Murdaugh, revealed his belief that his father's trial was “tilted” and predetermined from the start. Buster sat down with MacCallum as part of a FOX Nation-exclusive series titled "The Fall of the House of Murdaugh," where he aimed to shed light on what he sees as the truth behind his mother's and brother's deaths.
During the interview, Buster expressed his dissatisfaction with the fairness of his father's trial, stating, "I do not believe it was fair. I was there for six weeks studying it, and I think it was a tilted table from the beginning." He argued that many of the jurors had already formed their opinions before the deliberations began, leading to what he sees as an unjust conviction.
Alex Murdaugh made headlines earlier this year when he was convicted of murdering his wife and son in an alleged attempt to divert attention from his alleged financial crimes. The jury quickly returned a verdict after less than three hours of deliberation, finding Alex guilty of two counts each of murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.
Buster contends that law enforcement rushed to judgment and sought Alex as a suspect due to the intense media scrutiny surrounding the case. He believes that his father's role as the person who discovered the bodies led to a hasty investigation. "I think it's one of those things where you have to do something. And I think that it was, that's the option and the route that they decided to go with," Buster stated.
Despite his unwavering support for his father throughout the trial, Buster acknowledged that the term “psychopath” is a fair assessment for Alex. He pointed to his father's manipulation, lies, and overall behavior as characteristics that align with the term. However, he maintains that Alex is not guilty of murdering his mother and brother.
The exclusive interview with Buster Murdaugh is part of the FOX Nation series "The Fall of the House of Murdaugh," which offers behind-the-scenes footage from the trial, never-before-seen home movies, and intimate prison revelations from Alex himself. Subscribers to FOX Nation will also have access to interviews with Alex Murdaugh's defense team, the lead prosecutor, and various individuals involved in the case.
Buster's interview and the "The Fall of the House of Murdaugh" series aim to present a different perspective on the high-profile case, challenging the prevailing narrative and inviting viewers to consider alternative possibilities. As the story continues to unfold, it is clear that the Murdaugh family's tragedy has captivated public attention and divided opinions on Alex's guilt or innocence.
