Man who died near Murdaugh’s property is homicide: Attorney

Stephen Smith, an LGBTQ activist and nursing student, died under suspicious circumstances in July 2015.

The body of a teenager found along a South Carolina road, whose death was being reinvestigated after public interest was renewed during the Alex Murdaugh case, has now been deemed a homicide, the family attorney says.

The extraordinary disclosure of the death investigation of Stephen Smith came in a phone call between lawyer Eric Bland and South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) Chief Mark Keel.
