'Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal': From drugs to strippers, here's what Paul Murdaugh used the Moselle property for
HAMPTON COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA: Documentaries have the power of letting people what actually happened during an incident or a crime and how the culprit was caught. Netflix has a knack for telling powerful stories based on real-life incidents and the streaming platform doesn’t leave any stone unturned in revealing all the details that were never heard or seen before. This time, the streamer has dug a little deeper into the Murdaugh Murders case and presented the world with some facts that might make a difference in the ongoing trial. If you have been following the case, you know that it all started with the tragic death of Mallory Beach in 2019, and that fatal boat crash was the beginning of the end for Paul Murdaugh and his entire family.
In the three-part documentary, viewers see how the fatal crash took place and why no one wanted Paul to drive the boat while returning from an Oysters’ Roast Party. There were six people on the boat, and only one didn’t make it out alive and her name was Mallory. The death of Mallory was just the beginning and as time progressed, everyone got to know how evil the Murdaugh Family was. Their beautiful property in Moselle became really infamous after the deaths of Paul and Maggie Murdaugh. That particular property was a safe haven for Paul Murdaugh who did a lot of illegal things there as well.

So, what was the Moselle property used for? Well, let’s take a look.
Moselle's property was used for drugs and hiding weapons
In the three-part documentary, we get to hear about everything from the people that were present on that fateful night when Mallory. Anthony, Miley, Morgan, and Connor were present in the boat when the crash took place. Anthony was Paul’s best friend and knew him since they were small kids. Meanwhile, Morgan was Paul’s girlfriend. While talking about the Moselle property, Morgan showed the driveway that led to the house and it was so deep into the woods that people were unable to see the property from the starting point of the driveway. Morgan also revealed that the property is spread over a thousand acres and is situated on the outskirts of Hampton.
On the other hand, Anthony noted that he made some great memories with Paul at the Moselle property as he and Paul would go on fishing and hunting. According to Anthony, people never got bored there. The Murdaugh family also had a lot of dogs present at the property because Paul used to go hog hunting. The property had skinning sheds and multiple ponds.
The property also had a landing strip where the Murdaughs used to land their private plane. When asked what the strip was used for, Anthony revealed that, according to Paul, it was used for “everything that you can imagine, including drugs and strippers.”
So, it seems the Moselle property was a playground for Paul and he was using it for doing anything he wanted to.
As the documentary progressed, we got to know that the property was also used to hide a lot of weapons like shotguns and more.
