Alex Murdaugh Claims He Lied About Dogs Causing Housekeeper Gloria Satterfield’s Fatal Trip And Fall

Published on

In a court filing filed Monday, Alex Murdaugh said that he lied to his insurance companies when he claimed that his deceased housekeeper Gloria Satterfield fell because of the family dogs.

Satterfield, who was a former South Carolina hunting property known as Moselle, died on February 26, 2018 after falling down the steps to the main residence of the family.

Murdaugh’s attorneys wrote that “No dogs were responsible for the fall of Gloria Satterfield” in response to Nautilus Insurance Company’s fraud suit against him. “After Ms. Satterfield died, defendant fabricated Ms. Satterfield’s purported claim that dogs were responsible for her fall in order to force his insurance companies to pay a settlement.”

Nautilus filed a lawsuit against Murdaugh and his former attorney Cory Fleming and others, alleging fraud. They allegedly stole $3.8 million and $500 000 from Lloyd’s of London, which should have been given to the Satterfield Children.

Nautilus accuses Murdaugh for hatching a scheme to commit insurance fraud by encouraging Satterfield’s children to sue and then filling his pockets.

Murdaugh allegedly told the Satterfield Boys that no settlement had been reached because he and co-conspirators spent the windfall.

Murdaugh’s attorneys point out in their reply that the Satterfields were awarded over $7.5M based on allegations that the disbarred lawyer had stolen money from insurance that was supposed to go to them.

Document contends that the Satterfield estate was not entitled to receive the funds if Murdaugh had lied about the circumstances surrounding the fall.

Eric Bland, the lawyer who represents the family of the deceased housekeeper, claims that Murdaugh has lied yet again in order to avoid a judgement against him and encourage Nautilus Estate to sue Satterfield.

Murdaugh signed a $4.3 Million judgment for the Satterfield family, which was voluntarily done by him.

“He is not to be trusted.” Bland said, “He’s a murderer who has been convicted and is a known liar.”

Murdaugh received two life sentences in March for the murders of his son Paul, 22, and wife Maggie, 52, which occurred in June 2021. He is appealing the verdict.

Murdaugh confessed to lying for years to his family, friends, and clients.

South Carolina Law Enforcement Division is currently investigating the death of Satterfield.

Murdaugh’s courtroom battles have not yet ended. He was indicted on over 100 counts for financial crimes stemming out of the theft of almost $9 million by his former law office, clients, and the Satterfield Children.
