Alex Murdaugh's son Buster seen for the first time since dad's murder conviction

His girlfriend wore puffy slippers, a long-sleeve shirt and jean shorts on their morning stroll

Buster Murdaugh and Brooklynn White walk their dogs in Hilton Head, SC, Saturday, March 4, 2023. Buster's father, Alex Murdaugh, was sentenced to a double life sentence yesterday for the murders of Buster's mother and brother in 2021.

Alex Murdaugh's only living son, Buster, was spotted for the first time with his girlfriend since his father was handed a double life sentence for killing his mom and brother.

Buster, 26, appeared relaxed, like it was the first time he could breathe after his father's emotionally grueling, six-week trial in Colleton County, South Carolina.

He was even seen breaking a smile while he and his girlfriend walked their dogs shortly after 10 a.m. on Saturday.

Buster's Rolex was a stark contrast to his comfy Saturday morning look of scruffy sweatpants, a t-shirt and a ball cap that covered his eye-catching fire-red hair.

The couple passed other dog walkers, who didn't say anything to them.

It almost looked like the trial of the year hasn't just wrapped up 24 hours earlier, as Buster tried to settle into a new normal.
