Alex Murdaugh talks with attorney Jim Griffin

Alex Murdaugh speaks with his defense attorney Jim Griffin in the Colleton County Courthouse during Murdaugh’s double murder trial in Walterboro, SC, on Monday, February 6, 2023.

A jailhouse recording of convicted double murderer Alex Murdaugh speaking with one of his defense attorneys was released over the weekend – a recording that appears to have been made sometime during Murdaugh’s recent Colleton County, S.C., trial in the shooting deaths of his wife and son.

After the call was released and widely shared, however, law enforcement backtracked and requested that people not share it.

“Alex, I really got to go to bed and call my wife,” attorney Jim Griffin says on the phone call.

“I know that and I’m gonna let you go,” Murdaugh says. “But the one thing I wanted to tell you. Please don’t think I’m being critical about that because I’m not. I don’t think you could have done a better job with him than you did today.”
