A member of a scandal-hit South Carolina legal dynasty has issued a statement blasting his brother after he checked into rehab as he was accused of stealing over $1 million from their family's law firm. Randy Murdaugh (center) said: 'I was shocked, just as the rest of my PMPED family, to learn of my brother, Alex’s, drug addiction and stealing of money. I love my law firm family and also love Alex as my brother. While I will support him in his recovery, I do not support, condone, or excuse his conduct in stealing by manipulating his most trusted relationships. I will continue to pursue my client’s interests with the highest degree of honesty and integrity, as I always have.' Randy worked alongside Alex (left and top right with his family) at PMPED (offices bottom right) in Hampton County, South Carolina, with the family's latest scandal erupting after Alex was shot in the head by the side of a road on Saturday.

No arrests have been made, and police have yet to share a motive. Paul Murdaugh was awaiting trial over the death of a 19 year-old woman who was killed when she fell from a boat he was driving while drunk, and has also been linked to the death of a gay teenager found dead in the middle of the road.

A lightning strike is now being investigated as a possible culprit in the deaths of a California family and their dog, whose bodies were found on a remote hiking trail last month. Snapchat engineer Jonathan Gerrish, 45, his wife, Ellen Chung, their one year-old daughter, Muji and the family's dog, Oski, were discovered dead in Sierra National Forest on August 17.
