The scope and scheme of Alex Murdaugh's alleged multi-million dollar fraud becomes clearer with each new criminal charge against him.
It now appears Murdaugh didn't work alone, being helped for years by two accomplices: longtime friend and fellow lawyer Cory Fleming, along with business associate and Hampton banker Russell Laffitte.
A question top of mind to many who've followed the Murdaugh case is why these men — ostensibly wealthy already — would resort to the level of thievery and deceit they're accused of by the state grand jury.
For answers, we went to private investigator Frank Worrell, a forensic accountant who worked in the past for the U.S. Treasury and FBI investigating crimes in the financial sector.
Worrell's resume includes crimes involving securities trading and various financial fraud cases — including the Ponzi scheme by notorious South Carolina con-man Al Parish.
