maŋit 9 diimmut
58:36Bombshells in the Murdaugh courtroom today as the defense asked for the jury to be taken to Mozelle. Defense attorney Dick Harpootlian said he wants the jury to see the family's rural hunting lodge, so before jurors move to deliberations, they will be allowed to walk through the crime scene. Also today a defense witness seemed to contradict another defense witness who claimed the shooter was around 5'2". Today's expert testified that the shooter would be taller than Maggie or Paul Murdaugh.

maŋit 3 beaivvit
44:22Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty in the death of 7-year-old Athena Strand. The 7-year-old was taken from her family home by a FedEx delivery driver and was dead within an hour of her abduction. Authorities say a contract FedEx driver who was delivering a package to Strand’s home kidnapped the girl. Investigators say Strand got off a bus around 4:15 p.m. and was missing from the residence at some point before 5:15 p.m. after an argument with her stepmother. An hour-long search ensued, but when Strand could not be found, 911 was called. Dozens of law enforcement and hundreds of volunteers joined the search effort. Police received a tip about the FedEx Driver Tanner Horner. When approached by police, Horner confessed. Police have not said whether Strand was sexually assaulted.

Is Alex Murdaugh Believable?
27:30Alex Murdaugh's testimony at times seems more like a circus than a courtroom with talk of dogs, and chickens. Murdaugh first related at length how he removed a chicken from his dog's month and the timing of it at the kennel. Then under cross-examination, the accused killer went over the activities at the kennel again, in exactly detail. Both the defense and prosecution look to use this testimony. One side saying the information proves Alex Murdaugh could not be a killer, the other side saying the testimony shows he lied. Murdaugh has repeatedly admitted that he stole money from clients and loved ones. He also admitted that he lied to police. So the question now is, can a jury believe that Murdaugh is now telling the truth when he says that he did not kill his wife and son. Nancy Grace and Sheryl McCollum, Founder: Cold Case Investigative Research Institute, look at the possibilities. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
