'This nauseates me': Internet disgusted as Alex Murdaugh gets love letters in prison, met by Netflix
COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA: Alex Murdaugh has reportedly been receiving love letters while in prison. He has also reportedly been approached by Netflix. Murdaugh is being held in his own cell at the Kirkland Reception and Evaluation Center. The 54-year-old is apparently being housed with the state's most violent inmates.
"..I think I love you," one correspondent, named Nicolette K, wrote to Murdaugh on March 12, adding, "and 'I think about you all day everyday," according to a message log obtained by Fitness News under Freedom of Information laws. The following day, the person sent another message, saying, "I swear on my life and on my soul I'll never say a single word to anyone important or not important. I genuinely care for you."

'It's very important to have your voice'
It has been reported that Netflix approached Murdaugh for further episodes of 'Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal'. "We feel at this point it's very important to have your voice in the (remainder) of our series," producer Mike Gasparro allegedly said. "Our first three episodes (were) viewed by 40 million households and also 75 million hours (were) watched in just ten days. Those numbers will continue to rise. We believe you can have the largest platform on TV if you are willing to speak to us."
Saying she believed Murdaugh was "innocent," Lacie K wrote on March 12, "'I am just a small town girl from Missouri. I am here if you want to talk. Or vent. XXLacie.' Destiny H offered to 'send you some pics of me." She added, "'You didn't kill your family, somebody else did and you don't wanna tell it. I give you all the love for not snitching but then again, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do for your freedom."
Murdaugh has heavily regulated phone and messaging capability in jail and has access to a prison-issued tablet. The tablet is not connected to the internet, the Daily Mail reported.
Other killers received love letters too
This is not the first time a convicted murderer has received love letters in prison. Serial killers Ted Bundy, Chris Watts, and Jeffrey Dahmer too received letters, and so did Idaho mass murderer Bryan Kohberger.
Murdaugh has reportedly filed a motion to appeal his conviction for the murders of his wife Maggie, and son Paul. Murdaugh was found guilty of murdering them after jurors deliberated for three hours on March 2, 2023. This came after six weeks of testimony. He was later sentenced to life in prison.
'Crazy loves crazy?'
The internet reacted to the news of the love letters, with one user saying, "This completely nauseates me". Another said, "A little misrepresented. There's 1 person who sent a "love" message. Everyone else just showed support. Oh and yes then there's the Netflix guy". One said, "He probably gets a lot of love letters and he'll probably get a lot more. He's how you say, famous."

"Kohberger had a woman that wanted to marry him the first week in jail And he slashed up 4 people!" one user exclaimed, while another said, "Well we knew the love letters and what not were coming. Ted Bundy and many other infamous people received love letters and marriage proposals!" "Crazy loves crazy?" one user joked.
