“People Will Lose their Jobs Over this!”


Furious SLED chief Mark Keel could fire people because of the incompetence of law enforcement revealed in the murder trial of Alex Murdaugh

Murdaugh Trial: Week Two

So, one person is not pleased by the increasingly gripping testimony we’ve heard so far at the double murder trial of South Carolina attorney and scion, Alex Murdaugh. That person, I gather, is Mark Keel, the chief of SLED. (South Carolina Law Enforcement Division).

Monday night, Keel was described to me by a source in law enforcement as being “unglued” because of how badly he felt both SLED and Colleton County Sherriff’s Office had come off so far in the courtroom, where the trial is into its second week.

One of his agents, Katie McAllister, who was part of the team who examined the grisly murder scene, was visibly in tears Monday evening, says an eye witness who spoke to her. According to my source, she described Keel as “giving them so much hell that he says there will be people losing their jobs over this.”

Even if you haven’t been paying close attention to what’s been going on so far inside the South Carolina court room, the increasingly eye-popping headlines out of what we’ve seen so far in the trial, raise important questions about what happened on the night of June 7 2021.

Remember that’s the night the bodies of Maggie and Paul Murdaugh were found shot dead, felled by two separate guns, at Moselle, a family hunting estate owned by the Murdaugh family, a dynasty of lawyers who had effectively ruled South Carolina’s Low Country for around a century.
