Maggie Murdaugh was found shot to death with her son Paul at the prominent South Carolina family’s hunting estate, and her husband, Alex Murdaugh, is accused of committing the June 7, 2021, murders.

Alex Murdaugh took the witness stand in his own defense in February 2023, denying the murders but admitting to an opioid addiction that led to a web of lies. The murders are featured in a new Netflix and HBO Max series.

Before she died, though, Maggie Murdaugh, posted a loving tribute to her husband on her Facebook page, which is still active.

People have now filled her Facebook page with comments. “We miss you so much Maggie Murdaugh ❤️” wrote one woman.

According to Maggie’s obituary, Margaret “Maggie” Kennedy Branstetter Murdaugh, 52, “entered into eternal rest with her son Paul Terry Murdaugh the evening of Monday, June 7, 2021.”

Maggie and Alex raised their 2 sons in Hampton, South Carolina and enjoyed spending their summers at their beach house in Edisto,” the obit says.

“Maggie had a heart of pure generosity, and loved welcoming friends and family into her home on any given occasion. She adored her family, and cherished spending time on the boat with her two sons. She will be remembered as a “second mom” to her sons’ many friends. She made the most out of every situation, and lived each and every day to the fullest.”
