Looks like quite the family...

New wrongful death suit names Murdaughs (2019)

...A new wrongful death suit has been filed in connection with the death of Mallory Beach, a 19-year-old Hampton County female who died following a Feb. 24 boat crash in Beaufort County.

The suit, filed by Renee Beach, mother of Mallory Beach, was filed in Hampton County Court of Common Pleas on Friday, March 29. In addition to several parties named in an earlier lawsuit filed in Beaufort County on March 20 (see original story below), this wrongful death suit names Richard Alexander Murdaugh, Richard Alexander Murdaugh, Jr., and Randolph Murdaugh III, individually and as Trustee of the Murdaugh Residence Trust 2. The Murdaugh Residence Trust 2 is a South Carolina Trust that owns two properties collectively referred to as "The Island" in the suit.

In addition to parties and allegations named in the earlier suit, this suit alleges the following:

That Richard Alexander Murdaugh Jr., who is over 21, allowed his younger brother, who is under 21, to use his drivers' license to purchase and consume alcohol, which was shared with other minors, prior to the fatal boat crash;

That, prior to the fatal boat crash, several minors consumed alcohol on The Island, and there was also alcohol available for consumption at The Island;

That Randolph Murdaugh III, as Trustee of the Murdaugh Residence Trust 2, knew or should have known that The Island was being used by minors as a place to illegally consume alcohol....

I thought the name had a familiar rig to it...

This is such a good story, truly for connoisseurs and long-haulers. It does need some steam, but this guy backwoods barrister screwing people for $ won't hack it. Netflix cries out for more from all these moving parts.
