Some people arrange for other people to kill them. Alex Murdaugh was one of these people. He put for someone else to kill him so that his son could collect on a life insurance policy worth $10 million. Alex Murdaugh survived the shooting on September 4. It happened months after the unsolved killings of his wife and son. Police say he told them that he was shot in the head while changing a flat tire, and it only caused a superficial wound.
His lawyer told the NBC TODAY show that his client wanted to stop taking opioids when he got very depressed because of the death of his son and wife. But he thought that his insurance policy had a suicide clause. So, he asked a man to kill him, according to the lawyer. The scheme was an “attempt to do something” to protect his child, Harpootlian said. Alex believed that he should kill himself because he thought it was the only option. But this is not true. Today, he knows that there are other life options.
“For the last 20 years, there have been many people who have helped Alex’s drug addiction by giving him opioids. But during that time these people took advantage of his addiction and his ability to pay a lot of money for drugs. One person agreed to kill him because they knew he was sick.”
