Buster Murdaugh spotted walking dogs on Hilton Head Island

Buster Murdaugh has gone to the dogs.

A grim-faced Murdaugh left the $180,000 condo he shares in Hilton Head, SC with his lawyer girlfriend Saturday to walk his dogs around their neighborhood, the Daily Mail reported.

Buster’s father, Alex Murdaugh, 54, the disgraced scion of one of the state’s most prominent legal dynasties, was sentenced to life in prison Friday for the murders of his wife, Maggie, 52, and son Paul, 22.

Buster has reportedly not returned to Moselle, the family hunting lodge in Islandton where the murders took place in June 2021. Islandton is about an hour from Hilton Head.

The 26-year-old, who was at court every day for his father’s trial, has been left almost an orphan, with his mother and brother dead and his father sent away for life.

Buster met his girlfriend, Brooklynn White, when they were both students at the University of South Carolina Law School. They both were dressed casually for the Saturday outing.

Buster was expelled, however, allegedly over a plagiarism incident, the Wall Street Journal reported at the time. The Post and Courier reported that “the family had paid a well-connected Columbia lawyer, Butch Bowers, some $60,000 to help secure Buster’s readmittance.”
