Alex Murdaugh admits to lying to authorities and has everyone questioning everything else he has to say.

Today, Alex Murdaugh takes the stand in his own defense of being accused of killing his wife and son in June 2021.

As of today, he has pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder and two weapons charges in the killings of his wife Margaret “Maggie” Murdaugh and son Paul Murdaugh at the family’s estate in Islandton, South Carolina.

But aside from that, a shocking reveal during his testimony told the world that he did in fact lie to authorities about his whereabouts the night his son and wife were murdered.

Originally, Murdaugh stated he did not visit the kennels on his property but it was later found that he had a video in his phone that confirmed that was a lie and he did in fact visit the kennels that night.

But then today Alex Murdaugh admitted he did lie to authorities about being at the Kennels the night of his wife and son’s murders and blamed it on addiction.

When he was questioned about lying regarding his whereabouts that night, here is how he responded:

The exchange went like this:

“Did you lie to SLED Agent Owen and Deputy Laura Rutland on the night of June 7 and told them that you stayed at the house after dinner?” defense attorney Jim Griffin asked him.

“I did lie to them,” he said.

“Did you lie to Agent Owen and Agent Croft on the follow-up interview on June 10, that the last time that you saw Maggie and Paul was at dinner?” Griffin asked.

“I did lie to them,” he said.

“And then, in the interview of August 11, did you tell Agent Owen and Agent Croft, did you lie to them by telling them that you were not down at the kennels on that night?” Griffin asked.

“Yes,” he responded.

Wow. I mean, how can we believe a word that comes out of his mouth? Once a liar, always a liar, I say…

People truly aren’t buying his lies and are convinced he murdered his wife and son.

The trial is ongoing and you can watch it live now here.
