Buster Murdaugh denies killing teen.

The oldest son of prominent former lawyer and murderer Alex Murdaugh,

 Buster Murdaugh, is appealing for his name to be kept from media accounts of the 2015 killing of a young man.

Stephen Smith, who was 19 when his body was discovered on a country road in Hampton County,

South Carolina, has not been linked to 26-year-old Buster Murdaugh. 

Almost 15 miles from the Murdaugh residence and 2 to 3 miles from Smith's car,

which had reportedly run out of gas, the find was made.

In a statement released on Monday, he refuted the unfounded rumors that he was somehow connected to Stephen's demise.

"My heart goes out to the Smith family, and I categorically deny any participation in his death," said the speaker.
