In a latest booking photo released by the South Carolina Department of Corrections on Wednesday, Alex Murdaugh’s head is shaved.
The photograph was taken just days after he was found guilty of the savage double murder of his wife, Maggie, and son, Paul. The CDOC stated that a new photograph was taken since “the previous one was not as high-quality as it should have been.” Murdaugh was apprehended wearing a buzzcut and a white shirt under his yellow prison garb. According to a representative for the South Carolina Department of Corrections, he is currently in the Kirkland Reception and Assessment Center, where all male offenders go after receiving their sentences. He will spend 45 days getting “medical tests, mental health tests, and education tests” before being moved to one of the state’s maximum-security prisons.
