Buster Murdaugh still lived in one of his family's many South Carolina properties in 2022; however, little else about his personal or professional life is known.
Since the killings of Maggie and Paul Murdaugh, which purportedly exacerbated the patriarch's opiate addiction and led him to hire a former client to kill himself, he has avoided making public pronouncements.
His father signed a formal power of attorney document entrusting him with all of his business. He has now been mentioned in legal procedures as a result of this and the fact that Alex is suspected of financial crimes.
Suits were filed in 2021 by persons who claimed to have been wronged by Alex and Buster, seeking a temporary injunction to prevent them from "hiding, concealing, misappropriating, selling, encumbering, transferring, depreciating the value of, or otherwise disposing" of their assets or monies.
Because Buster can handle all of his father's belongings that he "may own or obtain in the future from whatever source," it was necessary to name him to halt (potential) further financial manipulations until the original issues are resolved.
Buster's recent appearance in a Las Vegas casino further contributes to this.
