A “betrayed” son of Alex Murdaugh’s longtime housekeeper confirmed that he wants his late mom’s body exhumed — to conclusively rule out “foul play” in her death at the convicted double murderer’s home.
Tony Satterfield called for the distressing move to get answers over the 2018 death of his mom, Gloria Satterfield, 57, whose death a coroner later admitted should never have been ruled as “natural” as that is “inconsistent with injuries sustained in a trip and fall.”
The only witnesses were Maggie Murdaugh and her son Paul — the pair brutally gunned down by family patriarch Alex Murdaugh in June 2021.
Tony Satterfield stressed to Chris Cuomo late Wednesday that he does not believe his mother was likely killed.
But he still wants her body exhumed “to see if there’s any foul play,” he told Cuomo on his NewsNation show.
He said he felt “betrayed” and “shocked” that Murdaugh secretly collected millions in insurance payouts without giving a cent to his longtime housekeeper’s three kids.
Satterfield’s attorney, Eric Bland, also doubts the maid was killed — but noted Murdaugh’s shocking confessions about lying about almost everything to those he loves.
“Everything around Alex is danger, lies, deception,” Bland told Cuomo.
“We know that he capitalized on Gloria’s death financially and used it as an opportunity to enrich himself” while the housekeeper’s kids were “exploited in this process,” he noted.
He also said that “the police have some doubts about Alex’s story” that Satterfield was tripped by the family’s dogs when he wasn’t there.
“She flipped twice … so she had significant closed head injury and open head injury with 12 broken ribs,” Bland said.
“It’s gonna be difficult when they exhume her body to really determine were those [injuries] done by human hands or by the fall,” he noted.
“The real issue is going to be if somebody was told before Paul or Maggie died … if they know something,” he said, stressing that “Alex obviously isn’t going to say anything.”
Still, the lawyer stressed: “I don’t think she was killed.”
“I don’t think anybody would try to kill her and then let her get in an ambulance to go to a hospital to get medical treatment only to survive and say, ‘Look I didn’t get pushed down the stairs by dogs — it was by human hands,’” he theorized.
Bland previously told The Post that the Satterfields have already given permission to state investigators to exhume the body for the renewed investigation.
He said it “will probably be in the middle of the night, when the public doesn’t know, to ensure her dignity and privacy.”
Murdaugh, 54, is serving two life sentences for murdering his wife and son.
He also faces nearly 100 other charges for other crimes — many of which he admitted on the stand — including stealing from the Satterfields.
Prosecutors suggested his motive likely included hiding his drug addiction and the looming scandal of his multi-million dollar thefts.
