The other mysterious deaths connected to the Alex Murdaugh family are now back in the news.

As convicted killer Murdaugh, await his prison designation, we learn that Stephen Smith's mother has raised enough money to pay for her son's body to be exhumed.  In 2015  Stephen Smith was found dead in the middle of the road in Hampton County.

The openly gay 19-year-old had blunt force trauma to the head and his death was officially ruled as a hit-and-run. Smith’s family has never believed the teen's death was accidental. They say the actions credited to Smith were outside his normal behavior and the Murdaugh name popping up in the investigation set rumors flying. 

Smith’s mother Sandy Smith launched a GoFundMe to raise money for an exhumation and independent autopsy. She has raised more than her goal. 

An investigation is also still underway into the mysterious death of the Murdaugh’s longtime housekeeper, Gloria Satterfield.
