I think it more likely that he has used the N-word for rhetorical effect. If you read his capitalisation as an alternative to inverted commas his remark makes good rhetorical sense: "... a successful business man, not a 'n-word'...". Unless there is independent evidence that he was a racist it might be better to stick to a charitable interpretation. That said, it's an unfortunate choice of words, as there are plenty of people who will pounce on the use of the word without examining whether it was used with the aim of offending or with the aim of making a rhetorical point.

More likely he didn't type any of that. Police had his phone and they submitted these tweets to suggest emotional and psychological instability. Perhaps well after he'd already died.

No video of Murdock and incredibly strange tweets... I've seen video interviews of this guy, he is relentlessly smart. Incredibly articulate.

I did not get that impression from the tweets being sent from his account. I almost want to assume it wasn't Murdock tweeting.

It also opens the possibility the police spoke those words to Him during the alleged assault. Thus they became regurgitated but out of context.
