Alex Murdaugh auction items being resold on eBay with huge price tags

By Olivia Land,


They’re set to make a killing.

Items from the Murdaugh family’s infamous South Carolina estate that were snapped up at an auction last week have already been listed on eBay with hefty price tags.

Former attorney Alex Murdaugh, 54, was convicted earlier this month of killing his wife and son in the hunting lodge on the 1,700-acre Moselle estate in 2021.

Now, objects ranging from a crossbow to a wooden card catalog are being resold for at least $14,000 and $10,000, respectively, ABC4 reported .

The macabre souvenirs were among the dozens of Murdaugh family items sold off by Liberty Auction in Pembroke, Georgia, last week as part of the property’s new owners’ plan to clear out the residence.

Among the eBay offerings is a hunting jacket claimed to have belonged to Murdaugh himself, for which sold for $275.

In addition, Fox News reported that a camouflage gun case was listed for an opening bid of $4,999.

A pair of deer antlers from Moselle sold for $399.99, while a pair of men’s waders went for $125, the outlet said.

One high-profile item that has not hit the internet, however, is the so-called “alibi couch,” the brown leather sectional set that Murdaugh claimed he was resting on when his wife, Maggie, and son Paul were gunned down.

The set went to Phillip Jennings III for an eye-watering $36,000.

In an interview with CourtTV, Jennings, who owns a hunting lodge in Georgia, was unfazed by the couch’s grisly history and said it was “absolutely” comfortable.

There was also no sign of the derided tortoise shell lamps that went for $800.

In the run-up to the auction, Liberty Auction’s team insisted on handling the high-profile sale just like any other.

“This is just our job. We clean up people’s estates,” said Lori Mattingly, one of the owners of the family-run business.

“[The Murdaughs’] things are not any better or nicer than any other things that we pick up from other people’s homes,” she told CNN .

The Colleton County estate — which jurors visited just one day before convicting Murdaugh of murder — was sold for $3.9 million this month.

About $530,000 of the proceeds went to Murdaugh’s surviving son, Buster , and the remainder will help pay legal fees and creditors.

Meanwhile, Alex Murdaugh has already begun his two concurrent life sentences at Kirkland Correctional Institution, where he is reportedly being held in maximum security .

He is appealing both murder convictions while awaiting trial for a slew of financial crimes.
