Alex Murdaugh's BULLETS and furniture from lodge where he murdered wife and son up for auction
Countless items belonging to Alex Murdaugh went up for auction on Thursday, weeks after he was charged with murdering his wife Maggie and son Paul.
Many of the items going under the hammer come from the South Carolina hunting lodge where Murdaugh committed the brutal murders in June 2021, and include boxes of spent shotgun shells and a hunting shirt marked with ‘Alex’ inside the collar.
The auction is being held by Liberty Auctions in Georgia, and bidders are required to be onsite at the auction house’s warehouse to participate. Bidding began at 4pm.
Murdaugh was given two consecutive life sentences for the murders after the month-long trial captured the nation’s attention.
Scenes from inside the warehouse where the auction was held showed rows of possessions laid out across long tables, as prospective bidders sorted through the items that once filled the sprawling country home of the prominent southern family.
The auction comes almost a year after the 1,700-acre mansion where the Murdaughs lived – and were murdered – was listed for $3.9million.
After a year on the market, the Moselle estate was sold Wednesday for $2.6million, with proceeds for the sale reportedly going towards Alex Murdaugh’s outstanding legal fees, Palmetto State Bank, Buster Murdaugh and victims of the infamous 2019 boat crash, according to Fox Carolina.
The new owners, James Ayer and Jeffrey Godley, decided to clear the house after their purchase and put all its contents up for auction.
