“Ex-Housekeeper’s Son Seeks Exhumation of Mother’s Body”
- The son of the Murdaugh family’s former maid said he wants his mother’s body to be exhumed.
- Gloria Satterfield died in 2018 at the Murdaugh home. The Murdaughs said she had a “trip and fall” accident.
- Tony Satterfield told NewsNation he doesn’t believe his mother was killed, but wants to rule out “foul play.”
The son of the Murdaugh family’s former housekeeper, Gloria Satterfield, who died in what the Murdaughs said was a “trip and fall” accident, is calling for his mother’s body to be exhumed.
In a recent interview on NewsNation, Tony Satterfield said that he doesn’t think his mother was killed, but wants to “see if there’s any foul play.”
Gloria Satterfield worked for the high-profile family for more than 20 years before she died in February 2018, as Insider previously reported. She was 57 years old at the time of her death.
Maggie Murdaugh, the wife of disgraced attorney Alex Murdaugh, was the one who reported Satterfield’s fall to law enforcement, according to KIRO 7. Maggie Murdaugh and her son Paul were the only witnesses at the scene. Both Maggie and Paul Murdaugh were murdered in 2021 by Alex Murdaugh, who was sentenced to life in prison for the crime earlier this month.
WJCL-22 reported that Gloria Satterfield’s death was not reported to the coroner, nor did it undergo an autopsy. Last June, South Carolina officials said they would exhume the body.
Authorities first opened a criminal investigation into Gloria Satterfield’s death in 2021, three years after her death, as Insider previously reported.
During the NewsNation interview, Tony Satterfield said he was “shocked” to learn that Alex Murdaugh failed to give his family millions of dollars worth of insurance money following his mother’s death.
Satterfield’s attorney, Eric Bland, said Alex Murdaugh “capitalized on Gloria’s death financially and used it as an opportunity to enrich himself.
“Everything around Alex is danger, lies, deception,” Bland told NewsNation.
