Man Arranges To Get Himself Killed In Conspiracy To Collect $10 Million In Life Insurance For His Son

Alex Murdaugh, a lawyer in the USA whose wife and son were shot and killed three months ago arranged for a former client to kill him so that his surviving son could collect a life insurance payout of about $10 million, according to court documents.

Alex Murdaugh, 53, was shot in the head in a roadway on September 4 but survived.

A family spokesperson had previously blamed the shooting on an unidentified man in a blue truck.

However, Murdaugh admitted to authorities Monday that he had conspired with the man to kill him as part of a suicidal fraud scheme, according to an affidavit to support charges against the alleged gunman.
