Cringeworthy prison selfies have emerged of double murderer Alex Murdaugh – who appears carefree and topless in his cell as he serves his two life sentences.
Murdaugh is seen in dozens of images taken from his prison tablet, according to YouTube channel Phone Calls From Prison, which said it obtained the snaps from the South Carolina Department of Corrections in a Freedom of Information request.
The disgraced lawyer is either wearing a white T-shirt or displays his pasty torso in his spartan digs at the McCormick Correctional Institution, where he is serving two life sentences for gunning down his wife, Maggie, 52, and 22-year-old son Paul in 2021.
“Alex Murdaugh’s Only Fans premiere,” YouTuber Jump Suit Pablo tells his roughly 60,000 subscribers. “I’m only kidding. But we have some leaked selfies. I’m sure he didn’t want these bad boys getting out.”
Murdaugh, 54, appears to be using a tablet that inmates are given to access movies and play a variety of games as they do their time, according to Pablo, who notes that they also are allowed to make video calls.
Phone Calls From Prison said a photo is snapped every time the once-powerful legal scion logs onto the tablet.
It was unclear how the images, which were taken in June, were leaked.
In some of them, Murdaugh appears shirtless as he peers down on the tablet, which is seen in the reflection of his glasses.
He also is seen lying in his bed with his head resting on an orange pillow.
One image captures him yawning widely with a cone-like item hanging above him.
Pablo theorized that it is a makeshift loudspeaker the pill-popping murderer created using a rolled-up magazine.
The leaks emerged shortly after an audio recording captured Murdaugh’s awkward phone conversation with his surviving son, Buster, 26, on May 16.
Murdaugh greeted Buster with a “Hey, buddy,” according to the audio obtained by the local outlet FITSNews also under a Freedom of Information Act request.
“Hey, I don’t have a whole lot of time,” Buster replied in the 42-second conversation. “I just boarded a ferry to get back to the Hilton Head Island from Daufuskie [Island].”
Murdaugh, who killed his wife and younger son on their sprawling Moselle estate in June 2021, is also awaiting additional proceedings for a slew of alleged financial crimes.
At the bombshell trial, prosecutors claimed he killed Maggie and Paul in order to cover up the family’s money troubles.
Meanwhile, attorneys for the family of Mallory Beach, 19, who died in a booze-fueled boat crash aboard a vessel owned by the Murdaugh family, have reportedly received a $15 million settlement from a store owner who sold Paul liquor before the ride.
At the time of his murder, Paul was facing charges of boating under the influence causing severe bodily injury and death.
