True Sunlight

By Luna Shark

Previously known as the Murdaugh Murders Podcast, True Sunlight is the intersection of True Crime, journalism and systematic corruption. Welcome to the new face of MMP. True Sunlight is the antithesis of True crime. True Sunlight values accuracy over "access journalism". True Sunlight is shed with empathy — not exploitation. True Sunlight was created as a matter of public service — not just entertainment. While the name of the podcast has changed, our mission, values and team have not. We are simply expanding our horizons while continuing to shine a much needed bright light on crime and corruption wherever it appears. Celebrated journalists Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell are taking their style of reporting beyond Alex Murdaugh and his co-conspirators while pursuing justice for all the victims you've met so far. Ranked #1 and #2 globally in 2021 and 2023 respectively as the Murdaugh Murders Podcast, True Sunlight provides unmatched insight into the crimes and criminals exposed on MMP and dives deep into new instances of corruption across the US. We empower listeners to understand their legal and judicial systems through investigative journalism while providing tools to hold agencies and public figures accountable in order to change those systems for the better.  Listen on any streaming service or visit TrueSunlight.com to learn more.  Premium Members also get access to searchable case files, written articles with documents, case photos, episode videos and exclusive live experiences with our hosts on lunasharkmedia.com all in one place. CLICK HERE to learn more: https://bit.ly/3BdUtOE.

TSP #58 - Stephen Smith UPDATE And Why the Strongest Lead in the Case Is Marred by Integrity Questions + JP Miller Cries Harassment in Wake of Mica Francis’ Death

Tragically this week, two abused women were failed by the justice system and allegedly killed by their partners — Lauren Johansen of Mississippi Stephanie Francis of Rhode Island. On today’s episode we’ll get into that and a lot more on why our justice system needs to be paying attention. Investigative reporters Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell give an update in the Stephen Smith case during the ninth anniversary of his mysterious death. Why did Highway Patrol stop looking into Stephen’s death right after receiving its strongest lead to date?  Mandy and Liz look into the track record of the police officer behind a tip that introduced two new names into the investigation in 2015. Also on today’s episode, 911 calls and police records show the chaos of Pastor JP Miller’s life in the aftermath of two big scandals he brought onto his church — his 2015 affair with Mica Francis and Mica’s recent death. After combing through dozens of reports involving the church, True Sunlight has a better picture about how JP and those in his circle have regarded the backlash. In one harrowing call to police — in which JP claims to be followed by an armed individual — police get a taste of JP’s flair for drama and the many contradictions of his personality.  Lots to learn in this 58th episode of True Sunlight and more to come as Alex Murdaugh's appeal clock ticks down, Buster's defendants' responses are imminent and the FBI continues to look into Mica's case...

TSP #57 - ‘40 Days and 40 Nights’: 911 Call and Reports Show Harassment and Stalking Patterns in Mica Francis Case + How The Medical Examiner Failed Mica

Investigative journalists Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell continue their coverage of the Mica Francis case, starting with JP Miller’s shock and horror upon discovering a shirtless photo has been posted of him online. Social media came hard for JP this week with more accusations surrounding the tattoo of Mica’s signature he has on his torso. Solid Rock Ministries continues its battle with protesters, who were assaulted by a sprinkler this past weekend. Mandy and Liz also break down the contents of the Medical Examiner’s report into Mica’s death — needless to say, the report raises more questions than it answers but mostly Mandy and Liz were astounded at its lack of thoroughness and its reliance on non-medical evidence. Plus, a newly released 911 call sheds more light onto Mica’s state of mind on March 11, when she filed her restraining order against JP. It also sheds more light onto the broken system that failed Mica — and continues to fail women everywhere. Finally, two police reports filed by JP’s ex-wife outline very familiar accusations of harassment and stalking … as well as very familiar shrugs from law enforcement.

TSP News Break "Mini-Sode": Chris Skinner 911 call + What JP Miller’s Ex Said

We originally planned to take this week off entirely, but guess what happened...? We got a flood of FOIA responses in the Mica Francis case… This week, due to the dogged FOIAing from Beth Braden and brilliant mind of Liz Farrell, LunaShark was the first media outlet to receive the 911 call from the incident that led to Chris Skinner’s death on September 6, 2021.  Tik Tok has been hot with Chris Skinner theories ever since the news of Mica’s death hit national headlines — but JP’s ex-wife’s mention of Skinner in recent emergency protective order documents made those theories worth investigating in our opinion. On today’s News Break “min-sode”, Investigative journalists Mandy Matney shares new details and the recently released 911 call concerning the tragic death of Chris Skinner in Myrtle Beach, SC. Mandy also highlights info available from recently released documents, while also pointing out inconsistencies in the drowning investigation and the intentional lack of witness statements.  We also continue to ponder the suicide ruling on Mica and raise concerns about JP Miller's behavior. And even though today’s “mini-sode” is short, Luna Shark Premium Members are getting a second bonus episode this week where reporter and producer Sam Berlin just could not let go of a pressing question from the Murdaugh saga… where did the money go?   We’ll be back next week with a full examination of all this and more...  Until then Stay tuned.

TSP #56 - ‘The Smallest Man in the World’: What TikTok Videos and His Parents’ Divorce Tell Us About JP Miller + Buster Murdaugh Sues Netflix

Investigative journalists Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell — formerly of Murdaugh Murders Podcast — give an update on the latest drama involving Alex Murdaugh. His remaining son, Buster Murdaugh, filed a defamation lawsuit this week against major networks over documentaries they ran, which he said falsely insinuated he had something to do with Stephen Smith’s death. He is also suing a Hampton County reporter and his newspaper company for that same thing. Also, a federal judge issues an order in the Nautilus case, in which the insurance company who issued a multi-million dollar payout to Cory Fleming in Gloria Satterfield’s death is suing to get their money back. In his ruling, Judge Richard Gergel notes that the insurance company KNEW that something fishy was going on with the Satterfield case and yet STILL gave Cory that money. Why? The insurance company feared the payout would be worse if it went to a Hampton County jury. Also on the show, Mandy and Liz continue to connect dots in the Mica Francis case as Mica’s estranged husband, John-Paul Miller, continues to make TikTok videos in the hopes of putting out his own narrative about what their marriage was like. Plus, the disturbing patterns in JP’s parents’ divorce in 2002 and what it tells us about JP’s upbringing.

TSP #55 - From Divorce Court to Pardon Hearings to TikTok: How JP Miller Operates + Dick Harpootlian Is a Loser

Investigative journalists Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell continue down their path of discovery in the Mica Francis (Mica Miller) case and how her estranged husband, Pastor JP Miller, tends to operate, knowing the system will largely have his back. From TikTok videos in which JP threatens to expose Mica’s private musings to divorce court, where he showed up in a wheelchair, to his 2021 pardon hearing where he showed no remorse, the collective of JP’s actions and words show a man who thinks he only has to say something is true for it to be considered that way.  Mandy and Liz share audio from JP’s pardon hearing as well as court transcripts that give more insight into how his first divorce went down.  Also on the show, Alex Murdaugh’s cantankerous attorney Dick Harpootlian loses his bid for state Senate and all the power that came with that seat.

TSP #54 - Escaping JP Miller + Mica’s Law and the Mission to Make Coercive Control a Crime in SC

Investigative journalists Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell continue their real-time coverage of Mica's case — which they’re now going to call the Mica Francis case to give Mica back her identity free from Pastor JP Miller.  As each week passes since Mica’s death, more information emerges about the utter hell she was experiencing in her attempts to escape JP. On Wednesday, her divorce attorney Regina B. Ward — who is now representing her family — announced that plans are in the works to champion a law that would criminalize coercive control, which they would call Mica’s Law.  Watch the Press Conference Here: https://youtu.be/VerJib7RwsM On today’s episode, Mandy and Liz share more information about Mica’s attempts to divorce JP, including what was in the divorce filings, as well as what Mica’s family was seeking from the court this week before reaching an agreement with JP. Also on the show, they discuss the SHOCKING revelations in a recent affidavit filed by JP’s first wife, as well as the many incidences of abuse outlined in Mica’s journals, according to information from Regina Ward. Premium members will get an extended version that includes an update on former Clerk of Court Becky Hill and whether her ethics violations mean anything for Alex Murdaugh’s murder conviction. Premium Members get an exclusive update about a new lawsuit that has emerged from the Murdaugh Murders Saga.

TSP #53 - The Ominous Legal Document Filed Before Mica Miller’s Death + The Dark Past of JP Miller’s Father

Investigative journalists Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell find more pieces to the puzzle in what Mica Miller's life was like before her death in a North Carolina swamp.  Just a month before Mica’s death, old paperwork granting her husband the authority to make all medical decisions for her — including whether doctors fight for her life — was filed in the Horry County Register of Deeds Office.  Mandy and Liz break down what was happening with that power of attorney and point out small details that could be revealing a larger truth about Pastor JP Miller’s mindset and his attitude toward Mica.  Also on the show, Mandy and Liz start to share parts of their journey down the Wayne Miller rabbit hole. For decades, JP’s father was seen as a big player in the world of evangelists until a series of alleged sexual transgressions — as well as a very serious federal conviction for allegedly 'enslaving' bible college students — began to destroy his legacy. As Wayne Miller’s career took another hit in 2006, JP’s church came to life.  Premium Members get an update about a new lawsuit that has emerged from the Murdaugh Murders Saga.

TSP #52 - ‘My Blood Is Gonna Be On Your Hands’: The System That Failed Mica Miller

Investigative journalists Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell continue their deep dive into the Mica Miller case and into Mica’s estranged pastor husband, John-Paul Miller, who stands accused of harassing Mica in the days leading up to her death. On today’s episode, Mandy and Liz talk about what happened in November 2022 after JP instigated what would become a defining fight of their relationship. The escalation starts with two ominous 911 calls placed by Mica’s sister, who feared for her husband and young son after JP threatened to come to her house “armed and ready” to take back Mica, who had fled there after their argument. Then Mandy and Liz reveal what was happening behind the scenes during Mica’s hospitalization less than two weeks later, when JP tried to stop Mica from getting help and threatened police officers when they tried to speak with her alone.

TSP #51 - What Happened To Mica Miller? Best Friend Gives Haunting Details Of Abusive Relationship

Before South Carolina pastor’s wife Mica Miller was found dead in a North Carolina state park at the end of April, her best friend tried to get church officials to step in and do something about Pastor JP Miller’s “volatile” behavior toward Mica. They admitted seeing it too … but they did nothing. Investigative journalists Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell continue to look into what Mica’s life looked like leading up to her suicide. In this episode, Mica’s best friend speaks out about what she saw happening in her friend’s marriage — from a November 2022 blow-up in which JP’s friendly mask came off to Mica’s attempts to escape from his control to JP’s continued attempts to control the narrative — and about Mica’s frame of mind as she started to gain independence from him. One thing is for sure: Mica was a beloved member of JP’s church and when she filed for divorce two days before her death, the thing he feared the most — that Mica would leave him and cause a split in his congregation — was about to happen.

Investigative journalists Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell untangle the very strange — and very heartbreaking — death of Mica Miller, a 30-year-old pastor’s wife from South Carolina whose body was found in a North Carolina state park a few weeks ago.  Over the weekend, journalists, true crime aficionados and people hoping for justice learned about Mica’s death, accusations of marital abuse and her in-progress divorce, along with one very strange sermon in which her estranged husband — John Paul Miller — announced her death to his flock by telling them to stand, listen and don’t talk about what they’re about to hear after they hear it. Internet sleuths worked overtime, convinced the road to Mica’s death would lead them back to her husband. When Robeson County Sheriff’s Office deputies released details about why they had ruled Mica’s death a suicide, they provided an answer, but many more questions still linger.  Through suicide, Mica Miller pointed the world toward her husband, who she feared would “put a bullet in her head.”  This week's episode of True Sunlight looks at the investigation into Mica’s death and digs into police reports that outline what Mica’s life looked like in the months and weeks before she took her own life.  Also on the show, why was Michael Colucci’s murder trial postponed AGAIN? And Premium Members get an extended version with more information about the decision to delay the Colucci case.

TSP #49 - Speeding To The Colucci Retrial - Newly Discovered Reports Shed Light On Michael Colucci's Time Out On Bond

The Michael Colucci retrial is less than two weeks away in the Charleston area of South Carolina. Did Michael kill his wife, did she kill herself or did Sara Lynn Colucci die after tripping and falling into the loose loop of a garden hose? Investigative journalists Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell — who helped bring justice in the Alex Murdaugh cases — continue their pre-trial digging in the hopes of bringing more sunlight to the Colucci case this time around.  This week they share what they found in newly discovered reports that show all the times police were called to houses where Michael has stayed. A social media post by one of Michael’s friends appears to be mocking pre-trial coverage of Michael’s case. Police reports continue to add confusion to the question of Michael’s bond status. Plus, a look at how investigators handled — or didn’t handle — accusations that Michael vandalized his parents’ beach house after getting evicted and the coincidence of when this case was dropped.  Also, Michael’s high-priced and big reputation attorney Andy Savage files a slew of pretrial motions, trying to prevent the jury from finding out that HE destroyed evidence in the first trial. Stay Tuned, Stay Pesky and Stay in the Sunlight...☀️ Premium Members also get exclusive access to detailed timelines, police reports, and even photos from the shocking damage from the 2nd home Michael was kicked out of. AND premium members will get access to our live coverage starting May 13.

TSP #48 - Michael Colucci’s Volatile Marriage in the Days Before His Wife’s Death + A Member of Colucci Family Speaks Out

Investigative journalists Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell — known for their work in covering Alex Murdaugh's murders and atrocious schemes — continue their look into the Michael Colucci case. In three weeks, Michael will be retried for the 2015 death of his wife Sara Lynn Colucci, who he says killed herself … or maybe tripped and fell into her noose?  In the days and weeks before Sara Lynn’s death by asphyxiation, she and Michael got into several fights over text about the state of their marriage. In this 48th episode of the True Sunlight Podcast, Mandy and Liz give a play by play of what those texts say and how they stand in stark contrast to the picture Michael’s defense attorney attempted to paint during his first trial. Also on the show, they talk with Kim Colucci Lizzi, Michael’s stepsister, who gives listeners a look into her family dynamic and what led her father, Ivo Colucci, to kill his wife — Michael’s mother — just two years after Michael’s own arrest for murder.  Warning: This episode may contain language not suitable for all audiences If you think you've seen Michael Colucci out and about in the last 5 years, contact the SC AG's office here: AG's Office General Information 1-803-734-3970 Premium Members also get exclusive access to detailed timelines, police reports, and even photos from the shocking damage from the 2nd home Michael was kicked out of.  AND premium members will get access to our live coverage starting May 13.

TSP #47 - A Good Day for Stopping a Judicial Election - Bowen Turner’s Latest Ride to Jail + Texts Expose Volatility of Michael and Sara Lynn Colucci’s Marriage

Investigative journalists Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell continue to shine the light on a corrupt judicial system in South Carolina. This week they helped bring attention to and did their part to stop the legislature from electing prosecutor David Miller to a judgeship — after exposing Miller’s role in getting thrice-accused rapist Bowen Turner a secret soft plea deal in 2022. Also on this 47th episode of the True Sunlight Podcast, Mandy and Liz break down what happened during Bowen Turner’s latest ride to jail this past March (spoiler alert: he’s exactly the racist, homophobic, misogynistic person they thought he was). Plus listeners get another look into their deep dive into the Sara Lynn Colucci case. We’re now one month away from Michael Colucci’s retrial for the 2015 death of his wife. Mandy and Liz share what they’ve learned about Sara Lynn’s volatile relationship with Michael in the weeks leading up to her death. Premium Members also get exclusive access to Liz and Mandy breaking down Alex Murdaugh's appeal(s) for his state murder charges and now federal financial crime convictions...

TSP #45 - Alex Murdaugh Sentenced AGAIN, PMPED and PSB’s “Dirty Hands” Plus Where in the World is Michael Colucci?

On today's True Sunlight Podcast, Co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell update you on what went down at Alex Murdaugh’s federal sentencing hearing this week, where he was sentenced to 40 years. What does this new sentence mean? And why does Alex have to pay back millions to his former law firm and Palmetto State Bank when both allowed these crimes to happen for years? Also on the show, the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office believes suspected murderer Michael Colucci has been on house arrest at his parents’ house but … his parents have been dead for years. Also, according to police reports, Michael was evicted from their home in April 2017 — BEFORE his first trial. Why does South Carolina have such a terrible bond system when it comes to violent criminals? Also, what police reports tell us about Michael’s life after his arrest in Sara Lynn Colucci’s death.

TSP #44 - Feds Fight For PMPED & Palmetto State Bank. Did Cory Provide Evidence? + Becky Hill’s Absurd Presser

On today's True Sunlight Podcast, Co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell break down what happened at Colleton County Clerk of Court Becky Hill’s pathetic last attempt at staying in the post-Alex Murdaugh spotlight and why there might be more to the story about Becky’s pick for a replacement.  Also on the show, the federal government files a 126-page response to Russell Laffitte’s appeal, proving once again that they fight the hardest for victims … and, to them, the victims are Alex’s old law firm and Russell’s family’s bank.  Plus, Mandy and Liz put together a timeline surrounding Alex’s failed polygraph with the FBI. He was asked where $6 million in unaccounted stolen money went and didn’t answer them truthfully. But why did they ask that question when they did and do Cory Fleming’s and Peter Strauss’ cases have anything to do with it?

TSP #43 - What Happened to Sara Lynn Colucci? Part One: The Story the Jury SHOULD Have Been Told + Victims Matter Rally

On today's True Sunlight Podcast, Co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell begin their dive down the complex rabbit hole that is the Sara Lynn Moore-Colucci case.  Sara Lynn was killed on the evening of May 20, 2015, outside of Charleston, South Carolina, at a jewelry warehouse she owned with her husband, Michael Colucci. She died by asphyxiation mere feet from Michael, who said he was waiting in the car for her to use the restroom. Michael Colucci contends that Sara Lynn took her own life or … barring that … she tripped and fell into the loops of an industrial garden hose and accidentally hung herself.  When first-responders arrived at the scene, they found Sara Lynn’s body already cold to the touch and Michael with scratches on his body and a fat and bloody lip, which he says he got from giving Sara Lynn CPR. In 2018, Michael was tried for her murder but that case ended in a mistrial. Now, as the prosecution and defense gear up for a May 13, 2024, retrial, Mandy and Liz break down what went wrong six years ago and the story of Sara Lynn and Michael that the jury should have heard back then.   We'll also hear from speakers at the Victims Matter Rally like David Pascoe, Carl Smalls Sr. and Sarah Ford plus a special message from Sandy Smith on her experiences at the rally...

TSP #42 - Bowen Turner Is Arrested Again + the 911 Call from the Night of Sara Lynn Colucci’s Death

On today's True Sunlight Podcast, Co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell talk to South Carolina Victims Assistance Network attorney Sarah Ford and Karl Stoller, a father who continues to seek justice for his daughter’s sexual assault, about the latest arrest of Bowen Turner. Bowen — who was accused by three girls in three separate counties of rape — avoided prison time for those sexual assaults after he received a sweetheart plea deal in 2022, which his lawyer-legislator was able to secure because of his implied influence over the prosecution and the judge. This is his second arrest since his sentence was suspended almost two years ago and it’s just four months since he was released from the South Carolina Department of Corrections.  Also on today’s show, Mandy and Liz begin their coverage of the Michael Colucci retrial, starting with the night Michael’s wife, Sara Lynn, was found dead outside their business in Summerville. They break down the 911 call from that night and talk about what’s in store for Michael’s retrial in May.

TSP #41 - Who Killed Stephen Smith? Part Eleven… The Voice We Have Not Heard Yet + The Colucci Case

On today's True Sunlight Podcast, Co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell continue their investigation into the photos and screenshots found on Stephen Smith’s phone, learning more about what the Hampton, S.C., teen’s life was like leading up to his mysterious death in July 2015. Mandy and Liz revisit two interviews with South Carolina Highway Patrol that — with new context — shed more light on his very last night and on what evidence SLED might have to help them retrace Stephen’s steps. Plus, listeners will finally get to hear Stephen’s own voice from a video Mandy and Liz found on his iPad... Also on the show, Luna Shark is taking on a new case! This May, Michael Colucci will stand trial — again — for the 2015 murder of his wife, Sara Lynn Moore-Colucci. Michael — a wealthy, prominent and well-connected Charleston-area man — insists that his wife killed herself with a garden hose. His attorney Andy Savage (yes, that one) even suggests that she might have tripped and fallen into the hose and hanged herself. SLED Agent David Owen — remember him from Alex Murdaugh’s trial? — and the Attorney General say Michael strangled Sara to death in a fit of anger. This case features a lot of familiar themes and players from the Murdaugh trial, including the twists and turns that seem to have come right off the pages of a novel... On Tuesday, we published one of our Top Five Favorite episodes of Cup of Justice! We interviewed Emmy Award Winning Journalist and TV Host Tamron Hall. Tamron was on the TODAY Show in Mandy's early days of journalism and she deeply admired how she handled stories.

FEED DROP: CBC's Crime Story: Mandy Matney On What It Took To Cover The Infamous Murdaugh Dynasty

Just like in our Cup of Justice Episode 69 that published Tuesday on the separate feed, we’re going to do something a little different with today’s show. Today we'll 'Feed Drop' the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Podcast called Crime Story whose host, Kathleen Goldhar, interviewed Mandy back in November promoting the best selling book, Blood On Their Hands.  Fraud. Abduction. Murder. Every week, Crime Story host and investigative journalist Kathleen Goldhar goes deep into a true crime case with the storyteller who knows it best." You can listen to more incredible tales of true crime every week on Crime Story with the storyteller who knows it best. Find more Crime Story episodes in your podcast app, or here: https://link.chtbl.com/HtkP-5kV We know y’all are eager to learn everything you can regarding Stephen Smith and Grant Solomon’s cases. We are not anywhere near brick walls in either case as we continue to get more materials. That said, these types of investigations take time. Our whole team has been sprinting for years now, and as someone who can sense burnout due to their own experience, we made the call to take a little break this week a step back to see the big picture and carve a plan ahead.  If you’ve been with us for the longest time then you know much of this story… if you’re new we want this episode to be a check-in on all that we’ve covered and where we are going. Also, this is a great episode to share with people who don’t know the story and want to get caught up. We’ll have small intermissions with Mandy's impressions at the breaks, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy Mandy's conversation with Kathleen Golhar on this presentation of CBC’s Crime Story. All that said... we hope you enjoy this Crime Story episode with another amazing and inspiring woman, Kathleen Goldhar.

TSP #38 - Who Killed Stephen Smith Part Nine + The Murdaugh Murders Bloody Towel No One Knew About

It’s FOIA around and find out time again on True Sunlight Podcast! True Sunlight Co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell unpack the latest round of records reporter Beth Braden received from Colleton County Clerk of Court Becky Hill’s emails. In the stack of documents, Beth found memos from SLED outlining interviews with Alex Murdaugh’s siblings after Alex was finally charged with Maggie’s and Paul’s murders in the summer of 2022. Turns out there was a bloody towel found in the house the morning after the murders that no one knew about. Sorry, no one other than Lynn Murdaugh, Alex’s older sister. I know, right? Also on today’s show, Mandy and Liz do a deeper dive on a piece of evidence in the Stephen Smith case — his little yellow car that was found on the side of the road. Plus an update on Peter J. Strauss, the suspended attorney we told you about in Season 2, Episode 29, who might hold answers to the big question: Did Alex stash stolen money off-shore?

TSP #37 - Who Killed Stephen Smith? Part Eight... Red Flags and Red Herrings

True Sunlight Co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell are finally free from the constant noise of convicted murderer Alex Murdaugh and ready to once again focus on the case that deserves all the sunshine: Who killed Stephen Smith? It’s been nearly nine years since Stephen — a teenager from Hampton County with high aspirations to become a doctor one day… ground zero of Murdaugh territory — was found dead in the road, less than a mile from his home. While the murders of Maggie and Paul Murdaugh have brought a new focus to Stephen’s investigation — which had gone cold almost immediately — Stephen’s mother is no closer to getting the answers she so desperately wants. In the meantime, a number of people have come out of the woodwork with claims of wanting to help Sandy only to betray her in the end. In this episode Mandy and Liz talk about the red flags they keep seeing, as well as give an update on two people who have wrongly been identified by one media agency as people of interest.

TSP #36 - End Of An Era (Seriously…) Alex Murdaugh’s Motion For New New Trial Denied by Justice Toal

The Alex Murdaugh Rollercoaster (finally) comes to a stop. True Sunlight Co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell break down everything that happened at the very weird and very wild evidentiary hearing where Justice Jean Toal brought much-needed sanity to the state of South Carolina. After nearly seven hours of hearing from the jurors who found Alex guilty of murder and other testimony, Justice Toal concluded that Colleton County Clerk Becky Hill made “fleeting and foolish” comments to people around her, including one or more jurors, in her quest for publicity but that she did not tamper with the jury.  In other news, Mandy is excited to go back to Columbia South Carolina as we celebrate justice at the Capital City Club Columbia, SC to bring a special evening event you won’t want to miss!! Luna Shark CEO and celebrated journalist Mandy Matney will be joined by Attorney and Legal Director of the South Carolina Victim Assistance Network, Sarah A.

TSP #35 - Anatomy of A Broken System: How A Prosecutor Who Gave Thrice Accused Rapist A Sweetheart Deal Keeps Failing Up

So while we have a bit of an Alex Murdaugh break this week, True Sunlight Co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell wanted to talk about something really important that’s expected to happen the week after his evidentiary hearing. With South Carolina’s judicial elections on the horizon, today's episode revisits the Bowen Turner case and how his prosecutor’s 12-year journey to the judgeship continues to expose the darkest corners of legal power.  After reviewing hundreds of documents SC judicial selection, it seems like the Judicial Merit Selection Commission (JMSC) has unspoken rules. They can’t - and don’t - talk about the thing that is central to their existence – those few people in our state with the power to elect our judges wield unspoken power from the statehouse to the courtroom. That power has tipped the scales of justice for far too long in South Carolina. This system makes legislator-lawyers’ private practices potentially more profitable. And it gives a certain class of attorneys in the state much more power in the courtroom — especially when their clients can afford to surreptitiously fund a judge’s upheaval. Its truly unreal to watch some of the most powerful people in our state operate as if they don’t have a clue – nor do they care – about the concerns of South Carolina citizens or public safety....

TSP #34 - Light at the End of the Tunnel: Justice Toal Brings Order to Murdaugh Chaos

On today’s show, True Sunlight Co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell finally see some hope after five months of Murdaugh chaos. This week, Justice Jean Toal sent a strong message to Dick Harpootlian and Jim Griffin that her courtroom will not be a place for them to put Colleton County Clerk Becky Hill on trial in their quest to get Alex Murdaugh a new trial. Left with their playbook ripped in shreds, what will Team Murdaugh’s next move be? Mandy and Liz discuss the highlights from this week’s status conference and what they think will happen in the lead up to Alex’s Jan. 29th hearing. The biggest question heading into Tuesday's hearing was how Justice Toal would interpret the law – if she will decide on Alex’s new trial based on evidence of Becky’s actions with the jurors affecting the verdict OR based on evidence showing that Becky’s communication with the jury COULD HAVE affected the verdict.  And it didn’t take long for Judge Toal to make a clear decision on that and set the tone for the hearing...

TSP #33 - A Rapist and Killer Let Off Easy + Can the Justice System Withstand the Weight of Alex Murdaugh?

On today’s show, True Sunlight Co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell discuss Dick Harpootlian and Jim Griffin’s latest filing with the court ahead of the Jan. 16 status conference in Columbia. Did Team Murdaugh just admit the evidence against Alex in the murder case was strong? Are they admitting they don’t have evidence of jury tampering? Also on today’s show, Mandy and Liz talk about a 1988 Cold Case and the man who served time for killing a 60-year-old Hilton Head Island woman. The case is one that is particularly frustrating because of how — after being given a chance to show that violence against women matters to them — the 14th Circuit Solicitor’s Office declined to further prosecute a man with a history of violence, killing and sexual assault.

TSP #32 - FOIA Around And Find Out… New Videos Shed Light On Murdaugh Murders

After examining exclusive documents and videos from the early days of SLED’s case, True Sunlight Co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell are wondering if there’s more to what happened after Maggie and Paul were killed”? As we watched certain videos appear on a November 2023 episode of Dateline, our reporter Beth Braden got right on that and FOIA’d for them. These videos are important because as much as the bad guys want us to move on from this investigation… There are a lot of unanswered questions about what happened in the immediate hours following Maggie and Paul Murdaugh’s murders.  We will be posting the full videos – and access to all reports we received in the FOIA request – to the Luna Shark Premium feed on January 4th for Soak Up the Sun members only and we’ll publish to all members later on.  The videos provide unmatched insight into the Murdaugh’s mysterious world and who these people really are – in the same way the jailhouse phone calls gave us a deeper understanding of the players involved and the games Alex plays with them. And we're breaking it all down here on the first episode of 2024. We plan to continue to grow Luna Shark Media through Membership because we believe in the future of journalism and the more members who join the more journalists we can hire to dig into new cases around the country where crime meets corruption.

Are investigators getting closer to Alex Murdaugh’s missing millions?

Also on the show, why it’s now more important than ever for people to keep their eyes on the ball in the Becky Hill case.  In the new year, we're planning to create casual meet & greets, book signings, educational presentations, LIVE Q&A, university events, cocktail happy hours and more... And we want to source these ideas from the listeners and Premium Members.

TSP #28 - Alex Murdaugh’s Sentencing Hearing Part Two + The Becky Hill Set-Up?

True Sunlight Co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell break down Alex Murdaugh’s 50-minute speech to the court during his sentencing Nov. 27 for his financial crimes. Though nauseating — and, frankly, inappropriate given that he directly addressed the victims — this unprecedented speech from a defendant provided the public with a bird’s eye view to the full spectrum of his narcissism and his criminality. Also on the show, the quest to get Alex a new trial in his murder case has taken an alarming turn. The focus now seems to be on ensuring that Colleton County Clerk of Court Becky Hill’s credibility is worse than that of the Egg Lady Juror as Team Murdaugh continues its full-court press in getting just about everyone removed from the case.  In the new year, we're planning to create casual meet & greets, book signings, educational presentations, LIVE Q&A, university events, cocktail happy hours and more... And we want to source these ideas from the listeners and Premium Members with y’all connecting with venues where possible.

First of all, we want to say thank you to Eric Alan for his amazing work on Mountain Mystery Part Two, which gave our entire team a much needed break over Thanksgiving. Be sure to check out his YouTube channel here for more episodes: https://www.youtube.com/@Eric-Alan  This week we'll start with some good news, an update on the Becky Hill drama, plus a puzzling situation in Duffie Stone's 14th Circuit. We'll also discuss the brighter moments of Murdaugh's sentencing, such as the bravery the victims showed as they confronted a monster and the grace they showed in forgiving him. We also delve into the plea agreement itself and what it might mean for Alex achieving his No. 1 goal: to be a free man again. This week focuses on the victims' grace, forgiveness, hope and bravery. Next week, we'll pick apart Alex's nonsense.  We are back on the Blood On Their Hands Book Promo Tour and Mandy is coming to Nashville this weekend. We can’t wait to meet you at The Co-Op Hillsboro village on Belcourt Ave At 1 pm for a book signing Sunday Dec 3. We hope to see you there!

Luna Shark Productions continues its mission of getting the story straight and giving voice to victims by presenting part two of “A Mystery Mountain: What Happened to April Jones?” So much has happened in the Murdaugh case over the past week.

TSP #22 - Prosecutors Drop a Bomb on The System + Alex Murdaugh’s Lawyers Still Trying to Get Paid?

Are Dick and Jim STILL trying to get at Alex Murdaugh’s assets? True Sunlight co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell discuss Team Murdaugh’s latest filing with the state court of appeals over the $160,000 in fees they’re seeking from the receivership. Also, the Court of Appeals is deciding whether Cory Fleming even has the right to appeal his plea deal with the state. Plus lawyer-lawmakers in the South Carolina Legislature got a big wakeup call this week when more than half the state’s top prosecutors signed a letter calling for Rep. Todd Rutherford and others to be barred from choosing judges. Tonight, October 26th at 4pm ET, Mandy will be speaking to supporters and students at the College of Charleston about her new book Blood on their Hands and her journey to get to where she is today. It will be a talk about not only the Murdaugh investigation, but the struggles she faced during this 4-year investigation and how a little kitchen table podcast overcame the odds to make it to No. 1.

TSP #20 - Why the Good Ole Boys Don’t Ever Give Up: A Bowen Turner Update + Alex Murdaugh’s Hysterical Reply to the Federal Government

Despite the past four years of basically becoming Murdaugh scholars, True Sunlight co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell still find themselves shocked when they see "good ole boyism" at work in South Carolina. On today’s episode, there’s a very frustrating update in the Bowen Turner case, plus they discuss yet another prisoner that lawyer-legislator Todd Rutherford was able to secure a secret early-release deal for. Also on the episode, there appears to be a coordinated effort to remove Lowcountry judge Bentley Price from the bench. What’s going on there? Finally, they take a good look at one of the funniest filings Dick and Jim have ever made in their efforts to get Alex Murdaugh a better deal. The Judicial Merit Selection Committee is accepting complaints about David Miller until Oct. 23 - you can voice your opinion here: https://bit.ly/3RW9JJt Stay tuned for details on dates and times to catch Mandy in person and virtually in Charleston (Oct 26), Columbia (early November), Bluffton (Mid-November) and Hilton Head (December & January) in the coming weeks.

TSP #18 - Actually, Alex Murdaugh WANTS to Be Difficult + Cory Fleming Isn’t Really Sorry At All

It’s been another wild week in the world of Alex Murdaugh. True Sunlight co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell give a breakdown of what happened at Alex’s federal plea hearing last week and the vicious dealings that have occurred since then. What is Alex’s larger plan? Also on the show, Cory Fleming appeals his sentencing in South Carolina Circuit Court and Russell Laffitte is reporting to prison … in Florida. Plus an exploration into how Dick Harpootlian and Jim Griffin are being paid and why recent subpoenas seeking information about their entertainment deals are important. For some reason, we didn’t expect to still be stuck in Murdaugh land this fall. We were admittedly in denial thinking these cases would wrap up quietly and we could move on to other victims who need help shining the sunlight. But here we are, another week with an episode full of updates and important information on the never-ending Murdaugh saga.  While there is so much more to talk about today, we'll start off by talking about Crime Con and the concept of accountability.  We can’t rely on those who police lawyers in our state to do anything about Dick’s gun-pointing in court or Jim breaking prison rules for his propaganda documentary, but we can remind our millions of listeners and thousands of Luna Shark Premium Members of who these men really are and why they don’t deserve to be celebrated and that is a big deal. Lots to chat about, so let's get into it! And a fun update: Mandy will be on Court TV Thursday night September 28 at 8pm ET with Sandy Smith and Eric Bland to make a special announcement.

TSP #17 - The Persecution of Becky Hill and What’s Really Going On With Alex Murdaugh’s Defense

Convicted murderer Alex Murdaugh is headed to federal court to plead guilty for the first time in any of his criminal cases. True Sunlight co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell take a look at the timing of this plea deal and how his motion for a new trial — with his bombshell accusations of jury-tampering — fit into Team Murdaugh’s larger plan. Update: Murdaugh did plead guilty in federal court today as Mandy and David live chatted the event to Premium Members on Discord. Sentencing will occur at a later date. Keep in mind: the SC AG currently has custody of Alex as “primary custodian” for life sentences but promised to deliver/loan him to any federal hearings and in essence Alex didn’t object to that back in May. And when sentenced federally, the bureau of prisons / federal judge can execute/order sentence to be consecutive or concurrent to state sentence… but he’ll serve it in the care of primary custodian. We’re back on the Murdaugh roller coaster this week so.. buckle up. Speaking of roller coasters, Mandy has been recording the audio version of her book Blood On Their Hands: Murder, Corruption, And The Fall of the Murdaugh Dynasty and it’s been so emotional for her saying out loud the parts of this story she kept so tight for so many years.  We are shamelessly asking you, our loyal listeners who have stuck by us for more than 100 episodes, to pre-order Blood On Their Hands hard copy, digital or audiobooks, which will be available in book stores near you on November 14th! Learn more or Pre-order your copy at lunasharkmedia.com/book. Premium members will also get access to a ton of new content matched with each chapter when the book releases in November.  Thursday night, Luna Shark Soak Up The Sun Premium members will get access to a very special PRE-recorded happy hour with "BOTH" co-author Carolyn Murnick and Mandy. We recorded ahead of time it because David and Mandy are attending Alex's federal hearing in Charleston, which we will talk about later in this episode.

TSP #16 - Cory Fleming Sentenced To 20 Years for Stealing Satterfield and Pinckney Money + Alex Murdaugh Has a New Trial Date

At the end of an epic three-part hearing Thursday, South Carolina Judge Clifton Newman sentenced Alex Murdaugh’s former best friend and co-conspirator Cory Fleming to 20 years in state prison for his role in helping Alex steal millions from the Satterfield and Pinckney families. True Sunlight co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell break down that dramatic hearing, plus they discuss what went down in two other hearings that happened in this same courtroom: One for Alex and one for Russell Laffitte. Liz and Mandy have also spent days dissecting those documents as the accusations against Becky were very serious. Last week, things spiraled into chaos again when Dick and Jim filed a long and shocking motion accusing clerk of Court Becky Hill of jury tampering.  We also spent a lot of time rereading Becky Hill’s book. Did we find concerning things? Yes. Do we think there is a chance of a new trial with this? Not at all.. unless we hear new information that wasn’t included in that motion. Which could happen... We will do a deep dive on all of that in a future episode. But today we need to talk about the very big deal… Cory Fleming was sentenced from 10-20 years (learn why there is such a gap on this episode too). Let's get into it...

TSP #15 - Sunshine On “A Mountain Mystery” - What Happened to April Jones? Part One

In this very special episode of True Sunlight, we continue our mission of getting the story straight and giving voice to victims. Eric Alan Daume reports from the Blue Ridge mountains of South Carolina and digs into the deaths of April Jones and Kevin Craig, and the disappearance of Faith Roach. There are so many similarities between Eric Alan’s investigation into "A Mountain Mystery", the Murdaugh saga and the Solomon case, all cases that need a whole lot of sunlight on them. ** And just a warning, todays episode has some course language and graphic descriptions. Today, Liz Farrell gives a brief update on the new shenanigans in the Murdaugh saga, but we are not going to let their nonsense get in the way of highlighting Eric Alan Daume's investigation into "A Mountain Mystery" and what happened to April Jones, Kevin Craig and others in this in-depth investigation. If you're a Luna Shark Premium Member, you've seen Eric Alan in the trial chats, and on camera. You might recognize some of his footage, which we use to make our own video versions of MMP and TSP episodes. He covered the Murdaugh trial and covers other cases as well on his YouTube channel - click here to learn more: https://www.youtube.com/@Eric-Alan. Eric is an incredibly talented documentarian and we are proud to partner with him by sharing his talents with all of you — our amazing audience.  If you listened to this week’s COJ you know that Mandy and David are in Europe so Eric Alan’s episode allows them to enjoy some time away and it gives me a little much-appreciated downtime as well. Learn more about Eric Alan's mission on his YouTube page here: https://www.youtube.com/@Eric-Alan   The craziness in the Murdaugh saga is (as-always) heating up so tune into Eric Bland, Beth Braden and possibly a special guest this Thursday's Luna Shark Premium Happy Hour, September 7th at 6:30pm ET. And don't forget Premium Members get access to searchable case files, written articles with documents, case photos, episode videos and exclusive live experiences with our hosts on lunasharkmedia.com all in one place. CLICK HERE to learn more: https://bit.ly/3BdUtOE.

TSP #13 - “I Don’t Think He Cared”: Cory Fleming Pleads Guilty To State Charges + Murdaugh’s Enablers Get A Taste of Big Creighton Energy

Every single time one of the boys “goes down” or we think they’re down, two more sprout from the surface showing their beady little eyes and empty souls. We've said this many times but our team is definitely experiencing Murdaugh fatigue. But we’ve noticed that the second we back off the story a little, shenanigans that need sunlight start up again.  But what a difference a week makes! After his federal sentencing, Alex Murdaugh’s best friend and co-conspirator Cory Fleming found himself in a much less friendly courtroom this week where he pleaded guilty to 23 state charges. True Sunlight co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell talk about the dramatic hearing and unpack what might have been prosecutor Creighton Waters’ best performance yet. We'd also like to dedicate today's episode to Joan Meyer, of Marion, Kansas. The full video of her stand against the illegal search of her home many attribute to her death can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e50NOlm6dkI&t=1s And just reiterating our big announcement about Blood On Their Hands - Mandy's new book which will be available in book stores near you on November 14th!

TSP #12 - ‘Coyote In A Trap’: Did Cory Fleming Pull a Fast One?

The first co-conspirator of Alex Murdaugh is finally behind bars! True Sunlight co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell attended Cory Fleming’s sentencing hearing this week in Charleston, South Carolina, where they watched Fleming — a former attorney who took advantage of Gloria Satterfield’s family — throw himself on the mercy of the court. The two share highlights from the hearing and explore new questions, such as: Was this a real display of remorse? Or did this just get worse? Did the federal government get played by Alex Murdaugh’s former best friend? As mentioned on Cup Of Justice, Fleming will serve 46 months in federal prison and pay $102,221 in restitution for his involvement in the scheme to steal millions from the Satterfield family. Moments after Judge Richard Gergel announced his sentence on August 15, Fleming voluntarily surrendered and was escorted out of the U.S. District Court in Charleston by U.S. Marshals.

TSP #10 - Russell Laffitte's Sentencing: The Audacity Of Accountability

True Sunlight co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell take a deeper look at Judge Gergel's sentence for convicted felon Russell Laffitte and zoom in on who the $3.55 million restitution will be paid to. It was appalling to hear again how much pain Russell has caused the Plylers and Pinckneys and how their old wounds won’t close because of what Russell did.  We reflect on the powerful testimonies and why its such a loss to public interest that these victims voices will not be heard by the public. Throughout the day, all signs from Judge Gergel indicated that his sentencing would be severe and send a message that this type of complex crime that requires years of bad decisions will not be tolerated. However, 7 years in federal prison just doesn’t feel fair when it comes to the “cruel” and “complex” crimes described in court.... The question is… why… and will this ever change if not now...?

TSP #6 - Could the Jeroid Price Case Get Worse? More Bad Behavior Outed By Women Attorneys

True Sunlight co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell go down the rabbit hole on South Carolina Judge Casey Manning, who is perhaps most famously known for his role in the secret release of convicted murderer Jeroid Price, who remains on the run. Mandy and Liz break down a 2019 case involving the brutal murder of a South Carolina mom of five by her ex-boyfriend. Judge Manning’s behavior during the trial was reportedly so egregious and awful that it now threatens to overturn the man’s conviction. In sharing yet another example of South Carolina’s broken justice system, True Sunlight continues to bring attention to the world that created a monster like Alex Murdaugh. You’ll also hear a quick Stephen Smith update and plans for future cases. And since we need a break - we’re taking the week of July 4 OFF!!

TSP #5 - Why We Need To Speak Up About The Bowen Turner Case Now + A Shocking Similar Case Involving ‘Football Star'

True Sunlight co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell revisit the Bowen Turner case as new details emerge from a victim’s family. After bringing much needed sunlight to the secret plea deal being struck between a lawyer-legislator and the prosecution, the family of Dallas Stoller went suddenly quiet. They said they were told to stay out of the media so Dallas’ case could be reopened. Also, we expose a sexual assault case involving a football star named David Bennett Galloway III that looks like it was handled a lot like Turner’s case.

After two Beaufort County teenagers are arrested for allegedly creating a fake Instagram account to impersonate a former teacher of theirs, Mandy and Liz discover that a little-known law exists that leaves the door open for abuses of power.

True Sunlight #2 - What Game Is Team Murdaugh Playing Now? And What’s Going on With Cory Fleming?

Despite Dick and Jim’s insistence that their client has been cooperating with federal investigators, Beth Braden, a journalist from Tennessee who now works with Luna Shark, attended Alex's arraignment Wednesday and reported that Alex Murdaugh entered a plea of Not guilty to the 22 federal charges.  Alex Murdaugh's Not Guilty plea in U.S. District Court, brings his ability for nonsense to a new low. True Sunlight co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell discuss the latest drama in Murdaugh’s federal case and his best friend Cory Fleming’s attempts to get off lightly.

True Sunlight #1 - Another Twist? Alex Murdaugh and Cory Fleming Federally Indicted

Welcome to the new face of MMP. True Sunlight is the antithesis of True crime. True Sunlight values accuracy over access journalism. True Sunlight is shed with empathy — not exploitation. True Sunlight was created as a matter of public service — not just entertainment. While the name of the podcast has changed, our mission, values and team have not. We are simply expanding our horizons while continuing to shine a much needed bright light on Alex Murdaugh and his web of misdeeds.  The U.S. Attorney’s Office’s decision to indict Alex Murdaugh and his (former?) best friend and alleged co-conspirator Cory Fleming this week raises more questions. Will Alex get to spend the rest of his two life sentences in “Club Fed”? Will Cory’s expected plea deal result in more big names getting exposed in this unprecedented web of deception? True Sunlight co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell take a look at the latest twists in this never-ending story of crime and corruption.

MMP #93 - End of An Era And Brighter Days Ahead: The Best (And Worst) of MMP + What’s Next

This is the last episode of the Murdaugh Murders Podcast created by Mandy Matney, written with journalist Liz Farrell and produced by David Moses... but don’t freak out! We are simply changing the name of the podcast next week while the mission stays the same. The podcast will ONLY get better from here — with more stories to cover, more journalists to work with, and WOO, more time to do these podcasts.  This podcast has been much more than work for our whole team in the past two years.  So for this episode, before we start tackling other complicated cases, we want to take some time to reflect on the last two years. To remember the good, bad, ugly and straight up strange things we have revealed on MMP. To remember where we started, how far we’ve come. To remind everyone that if we can do this, you can do it too.  As the Murdaugh Murders Podcast team looks toward a very bright future of shining a light on corruption, co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell reflect on the past two years of uncovering the truth in the dark underworld of Alex Murdaugh. The battle for justice is ongoing but being pesky paid off. In this episode, Mandy and Liz go behind-the-scenes and share the best, biggest and funniest moments of the podcast and the many surprises they encountered along the way.

MMP #92 - ‘Enough is Enough': The Big Problem With The Justice System And How To Fix It

On Tuesday, about 100 people gathered at the South Carolina statehouse to talk about something really important — victims and how they are often pushed aside in our justice system.  Murdaugh Murders Podcast host Mandy Matney and other victims advocates in South Carolina rallied on the Statehouse steps this week, calling for meaningful change at the legislative level. Victims of violent crime — and victims of Alex Murdaugh — have had enough of this system, which continues to ignore and harm them. In this episode, Mandy Matney and Co-Host Liz Farrell talk about victims rights, the need for judicial reform and how to solve the problem with legislator-lawyers.

MMP #91 - Casually Cruel: What Happened to Gloria Satterfield?

Only one person alive knows what really happened to Gloria Satterfield the day she was found bleeding from the head at Moselle in February 2018. And we all know who that is...  Murdaugh Murders Podcast co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell unwind the latest filing from Alex Murdaugh’s attorneys in which the convicted murderer now admits to lying about how Gloria Satterfield died. Also on the show: the boat crash case starts heating up and Dick and Jim beg the court for money.  On Tuesday May 9, Sandy Smith and I will be speaking among several special guests at the Victims Matter Rally at the Statehouse in Columbia South Carolina. As we have talked about time and time again on this podcast, our justice system so often prioritizes the privileged and fails victims of violent crime. And too many of our lawmakers are working for the bad guys.  As we are working on expanding our reach to focus on cases across the nation and maybe eventually the world where Crime Meets Corruption — we want to ensure that the pressure continues right here at home in South Carolina.  We hope to see you at the SC Statehouse on Tuesday... and let's get into it...

MMP #90 - ‘We are here to right wrongs’: What’s Next After Murderer Illegally Released + Alex Murdaugh’s Prison Life

Our team has spent the last week diving down different rabbit holes related to the Jeroid Price case. We talked about Price a lot in the last episode, but for a quick reminder, In December 2003, Price was sentenced to 35 years in prison for the 2002 murder of Carl Smalls Jr. After a whirlwind week, the state of South Carolina is sending convicted murderer Jeroid Price back to prison, but the fight against secret back door deals continues.  Murdaugh Murders Podcast co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell talk about the fiery state Supreme Court hearing that ended with an order to rearrest Price, the Supreme Court’s apparent attempt to keep the hearing from being broadcast and what might be driving Alex Murdaugh’s desire to be put in gen-pop at his prison.  Soak Up The Sun MMP Premium Members were able to reconvene as we broadcast today's hearing live and we'll share another link soon with complete audio.

MMP #88: Alex Murdaugh’s Pawn: Eddie Smith Is Out of Jail But Still Caught in the Middle

In this 88th episode, Co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrel unpack Russell Laffitte’s latest attempt to get a do-over in federal court. They also take a step back to look at the bigger picture of how convicted murderer Alex Murdaugh used Eddie Smith to do his bidding and then threw him under the bus in an effort to escape consequence. Now, Eddie is caught between the state of South Carolina and its two-tiered justice system that continues to treat the powerful much differently.

MMP #87: ‘I Can’t Believe It Has Happened’: Stephen Smith’s Body Exhumed

First off, if you’re on social media, please please please take part in our Green Day for Justice campaign to show the Smith family your love and support. A while ago, Sandy told me that Stephen’s favorite color was green and we are requesting all listeners to post a green square in their social media profiles for the month of April.  You can find a link to the squares we are using here: MurdaughMurdersPodcast.com/Stephen. We encourage you to share JusticeForStephen.com and Tips@sled.sc.gov in your twitter, facebook, instagram tik tok or posts on other platforms. The body of Stephen Smith was exhumed over the weekend for an independent autopsy, and the renewed investigation into his death has finally begun in earnest. Co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrel talk to Sandy Smith about how she feels now that her longtime wish has finally been realized.  To learn more about the Independent Exhumation, Autopsy and Investigation for Stephen, click here: http://bit.ly/3JGacec We believe 2023 is Stephen's year.

MMP #86: Solving Stephen Smith’s Case, Clearing Up Misinformation and What’s Next with the Exhumation

There has been a TON of buzz in the Stephen Smith case, which is a good thing. Just like they did in the Satterfield case, Eric Bland and Ronnie Richter have done a full-court press ensuring Stephen’s case is front and center in the media.  After eight long years, the family of Stephen Smith is finally seeing momentum in their quest for answers about why he was left to die on a Hampton County road. But challenges remain as DIY detectives on social media spread misinformation about the case and try to paint Stephen’s mother as on a crusade against the Murdaugh family. Mandy Matney and Liz Farrel (And EB!) discuss the latest in the case. To learn more about the planned Independent Exhumation and Autopsy for Stephen, click here: http://bit.ly/3JGacec A private medical examiner must be present from the start of the exhumation through the examination period at a cost of approximately $750 per hour. It is a huge expense, but we are hoping that with your support we can make this happen and finally get the answers we need. If you can give, we thank you for your generosity. If you cannot give, we would appreciate you sharing and praying for justice for Stephen. We believe 2023 is Stephen's year.

MMP #85: Who Murdered Stephen Smith? Part Seven: Stephen Smith’s Death Now Officially A Homicide

Eight years after 19-year-old Stephen Smith’s body was found on a rural South Carolina road, investigators are finally saying the thing his family has known all along: He was not killed in a hit-and-run... STEPHEN WAS MURDERED. MMP co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell talk to Stephen’s mother Sandy Smith about the latest developments in one of the most heart-breaking cases connected to convicted murderer Alex Murdaugh and his family. And we share key moments from Eric Bland (Co-host of our Cup Of Justice podcast) and partner Ronnie Richter's press conference announcing their representation of Sandy Smith.

MMP #84: The Latest on Stephen Smith, SLED’s Investigation into the Murders and Russell Laffitte’s Future

Thank you for your patience as this episode is publishing later than usual. As I said on social media, our team is in adjustment mode after the adrenaline and the chaos of the trial slowed down and we’re all still trying to all recenter our focus.  Now that Alex Murdaugh has been convicted in the murders of his wife and son, it’s time to take a look back on all the pieces that had to come together for the jury to deliver that guilty verdict. In the short time since Alex Murdaugh was convicted of murdering his wife and son, a lot has happened in the wake of his sentencing. This week on Murdaugh Murders Podcast, co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell take a look at the latest criticism of the murder investigation and South Carolina Law Enforcement Division — as well as Jim Griffin’s strange post-trial social media presence and Russell Laffitte’s defeats in the courtroom. They also talk with Sandy Smith about the next steps in finding justice for her son, Stephen Smith.

MMP #83: Alex Murdaugh Verdict: How We Got to Guilty + Creighton Waters Interview

Now that Alex Murdaugh has been convicted in the murders of his wife and son, it’s time to take a look back on all the pieces that had to come together for the jury to deliver that guilty verdict. Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell talk about key testimony in the case and also had a fun chat with South Carolina prosecutor Creighton Waters himself.  Looking ahead, we have big plans to expand our particular style of journalism to other cases across the country — cases that would be solved if not for local corruption in law enforcement and other government agencies, but we still have a lot of work to do with this case. Over the next few months we will be redoubling our efforts into our investigation of the Stephen Smith Case. Sandy, Stephanie and the entire Smith family deserve to see justice in this case, which should have been solved in 2015. So this is a big day — we hope a new day — in South Carolina.  And stay tuned, we are just getting started... Consider joining our MMP Premium Membership community to help us SHINE THE SUNLIGHT!

MMP #82: Week Six of the Alex Murdaugh Trial: ‘What A Tangled Web We Weave’

The trial of Alex Murdaugh is coming to an end and soon the jury will deliver its verdict. Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell break down the best and worst moments of the last week of testimony — including Alex’s big reveal that he was, as we all knew, down at the kennel just minutes before his wife’s and son’s murders. Turns out, Alex’s New Story about what happened that night sounds awfully familiar … not surprising given that it seemed almost entirely based on the evidence and testimony from the past five weeks.

Cup of Justice Bonus 11: Days of Bowing at the Altar of the Good Ole Boys Are Over

In this first part of a two-part episode, Mandy Matney, Liz Farrell and everyone’s favorite attorney Eric Bland talk about the suspicious circumstances surrounding Alex Murdaugh’s one big case as a lead prosecutor; the untouchable “retired” judges who are reluctant to give up the power (and money) that come with the black robes; and the time Eric had to go to Circuit City to buy something to place at the altar of Dick Harpootlian. As we revisit the ONE CASE Alex tried as a lead prosecutor — the Emmanuel Buckner case in 2019 - we talk in depth about that in episode 73 of Murdaugh Murders Podcast. If you haven’t listened to that one yet, we recommend you start there. We also got some really good perspective from Eric on what it is really like out there for young attorneys in South Carolina who weren’t born with the last name Murdaugh.

With fewer than 90 days left before Alex Murdaugh’s double-murder trial, we take a look at all the evidence we suspected, but now know to exist in the case. Also, Mandy and Liz take another look at a fiery two-hour pre-trial hearing last month where Dick Harpootlian and Jim Griffin did their best to throw doubt on the state’s case, but Creighton held his own and Judge Newman kept the peace.

Land of No Consequences: ‘Judge Mullen Is Wanting To Make Stuff Up’ (S01E65)

Last week we revealed that 14th Circuit Judge Carmen Mullen — who has been a key figure in the Murdaugh world — tried to create a crime and orchestrate the arrest of a man with psychiatric vulnerabilities in her neighborhood five years ago. This week, we have the recordings showing what she did — and her behavior is far worse than it sounded on paper. Once again, Mandy and Liz take on the judicial system and call on the state Supreme Court to stop looking the other way on judicial misconduct.  I don’t know how many more disturbing stories the justices on the Supreme Court of South Carolina need to hear about Judge Carmen Mullen or how many more times her integrity needs to be publicly questioned before they pull their heads out of the sand and take action. Stay tuned for a bonus episode of Cup of Justice this week as we peer deeper into this mess and the circus of a hearing last Thursday.

Cup Of Justice Bonus 5: Motions, Motives & Mullen

Mandy Matney took a moment to chat with Liz Farrell and Eric Bland to review a few legal maneuvers from the Murdaugh camp. Plus the team discusses a bombshell police report that alleges Carmen Mullen (spelled “Judge Mullins” in the report) injected herself into a neighborhood dispute and attempted to use her judicial position to incarcerate one of the parties without legal authority. Thanks to quick thinking by BCSO deputies, the injustice stopped there.

Cup Of Justice Bonus 4: A Surprise Recording and The Sacrificial Loser

Before the wedding this weekend, Mandy Matney, Liz Farrell and Eric Bland took a moment to discuss the big surprise that Russell Laffitte dropped on Palmetto State Bank last week — that he has recordings proving the bank’s board was aware of what he was doing.

Cup of Justice Bonus 3: Motives and Motivations - What's Up Next For Alex Murdaugh?

As we reported in MMP this week, the Judge Hall reversed his earlier order that basically split the "boat crash" case in two and allowed the Murdaughs to indefinitely postpone that trial so Alex could prepare for his speedy murder trial. The Attorney General’s Office told us the murder case still hasn’t been scheduled.  While we wait for those crucial announcements, Mandy Matney, Liz Farrell and Eric Bland want to share some conversations about what might be happening behind the scenes.

'Rich People Problems': The Victimization of Russell Laffitte (S01E62)

Russell Laffitte and his wife, Susie, gave an epically tone-deaf performance in an effort to get one of his two ankle monitors removed earlier this month. Mandy and Liz take a hard look at a recently released transcript of what went down in federal court on Sept. 6. What should have been a run-of-the-mill hearing, was anything but as Russell and Susie tried to convince a judge that he too is a victim of Alex Murdaugh.  We also hear a powerful response from Alania Plyler and stay tuned for more detailed legal analysis from Eric Bland this Friday on our new Cup of Justice Bonus Episode.

Who Killed Stephen Smith? Part Six (S01E61)

In this episode, we caught up with Stephen’s mother, the wonderful and resilient Sandy Smith, and Mike Hemlepp, Jr., the Columbia attorney who stepped up to help after Sandy’s previous attorney let her down. We asked Sandy and Mike where things with the case stood and how they felt about everything. While the case gained some momentum last year after SLED took it over from the South Carolina Highway Patrol, it’s now 15 months later and we were hoping by now to know more.  Mandy and Liz take a new look at Stephen’s case.

‘If You Come For The King, You Best Not Miss’: Chaos In The Murder Case (S01E58)

This last week was another roller coaster of insanity in the Murdaugh Murders Saga. Murdaugh’s defense team has amped up their strategy to fool the public and create chaos in the double homicide case and - per usual - mainstream media is happily helping them with that. Mandy, Liz  & David poured through a pile of documents filed in the last week – and dove deep into Harpootlian’s press conference.  We also cover the latest — including new indictments filed against Russell Laffitte, Alex Murdaugh, and two new defendants that plunge this saga deeper into mystery.

Our Entire System On Trial (S01E54)

We believe the entire system is on trial here. And it’s time the Attorney General’s office starts understanding that citizens of South Carolina demand transparency and zealous attention to restore public faith.   In this episode we take a deep dive into the perplexing prosecution strategies and deliberate defense strategies swirling around the various criminal charges pointed at Alex Murdaugh.  Mandy and Liz revisit odd statements made by the Murdaugh camp early in the double homicide investigation and how their original purpose might be making more sense.  Plus spirited analysis from Eric Bland and more on Russell Laffitte’s upcoming bond hearing for new federal charges including bank fraud and wire fraud. All the while, we are left wondering why Creighton Waters appears to have lost his initial confidence and we search for reasons behind Attorney General Alan Wilson’s absence from the fray.  The Murdaugh Murders Podcast is created by Mandy Matney and Luna Shark Productions.

Means, Motive & Opportunity - Who Killed Maggie & Paul? Part Four (S01E48)

Tuesday marked the one-year anniversary of Maggie and Paul Murdaugh's murders. Unfortunately, there still have not been any arrests in the crime that has evolved into the most notorious murder investigation in recent South Carolina history.  However, this week we broke some important news in the double homicide.  Audio and video evidence obtained by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division shows that Alex Murdaugh was at Moselle in the moments just before the murders.  In this episode, Mandy and Liz take you through everything we know about the double homicide — the means, the motive, and opportunity.  We’ve learned in this case how important sunlight is — and you’ll hear attorneys Eric Bland and Ronnie Richter and FITSNews founding editor Will Folks talk about that.  Also in this episode, we share good news in the jailhouse phone call case.  The Murdaugh Murders Podcast is created by Mandy Matney and Luna Shark Productions.

Overdrawn and Under The Radar - What Happened To The Money? Part Four (S01E47)

A motion filed last week by John T. Lay and Peter M. McCoy Jr. — the two attorneys who were appointed as co-receivers in November 2021 to tally Murdaugh’s assets — revealed even more shocking and unheard of banking practices at Palmetto State Bank. It’s yet another layer of this story that shows us how powerful institutions treated Alex Murdaugh differently and therefore, potentially played a role in his alleged crimes.  In this episode, Mandy, Liz, and fan favorite attorney Eric Bland explain the new information uncovered by the receivers and what we know about what happened to the money.  Also this week, the State newspaper published an interesting piece about Chris Wilson — the third attorney on the infamous Omaha flight. Will Wilson be a witness IF murder charges arise? *episode edited 11-30-2022 to correct error - Cory Fleming was alleged to be on the flight to Omaha, not Russell Laffitte.

Alex Murdaugh’s Ground Zero: The Case That Changed Everything (S01E46)

So today we want to take you back to the story that was the beginning of the end for the Murdaugh family’s 100-year dynasty and the fall of the Good 'Ole Boys in South Carolina— the boat crash that Killed Mallory Beach.  This case is ground zero for everything we talk about in this podcast. Without this case, the Murdaughs’ grip on the Lowcountry might never have loosened. The Beach case — which started as a fairly straightforward wrongful death claim — has become incredibly complex. Because of its intricacies it can become lost in the headlines to a degree. The good news? A heroine has emerged in this complicated and tragic case. And she won her first round up against the Good 'Ole Boys. Mandy, Liz and David comb through every detail and development in the boat crash case — which has been full of shocking twists and turns.  And a special thank you to our sponsors: Microdose.com, Priceline, Embark Vet, VOURI, Babbel, Article, and others.

We received new information from the attorneys and insurance companies who investigated Gloria Satterfield’s death. Not only do these new details raise more questions about what happened at Moselle the day of her alleged “trip and fall,” the new information highlights one of the major problems in this state: lawyers helping lawyers. Also, on Friday the 13th, Charleston's Post and Courier published an opinion piece by the current and past presidents of the South Carolina Bar Association on behalf of the state’s 13,000 actively practicing lawyers saying that “recent news stories and commentaries have presented an inaccurate picture of our attorneys, judges and lawyer-legislators.” However, this week, we’ve found documents that show that this heist could have never taken place if every South Carolina lawyer and judge involved were doing their jobs.  The culture in South Carolina is ripe for corruption and the corruption happens because of attorneys who pretend the problem doesn’t exist and attorneys who are too afraid to stand up to those around them.

How Many People Will Go Down For This? Part Two (S01E43)

As police are still investigating the five deaths that have been tied to the Murdaugh family, we’re trying to answer a big question in this case — what happened to the money? Following the money has led us down some strange, unexpected paths in this story — especially in the last week when it was discovered that Alex paid $110,000 for a funeral home. This funeral home is linked to one of Murdaugh's alleged victims and also linked to a funeral director that once sawed a man’s leg’s off because he was too tall to fit in the casket. We also share where the money went in the Hakeem Pinckney case… and which “associates” named in Alex's indictment benefitted from Pinckney's settlement. In this week’s episode, Mandy , Liz, and special guest Attorney Justin Bamberg take you through the paper trail of evidence and explain what it all means.  And we have an exclusive bonus segment in this week’s episode: As Deadline first reported, a drama series based off the Murdaugh Murders Podcast in development at UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group. In this episode, you’ll hear from Erin Lee Carr and Michael D. Fuller — the creators and writers for the show in development— explain their vision and approach to the Murdaugh saga.

This episode is about so much more than jailhouse phone calls right now. This is about the future of the justice system in our state.

Bowen Turner & The Two Systems Of Justice (S01E40)

19-year-old Bowen Turner is accused of raping three women between 2018-2019. One of those victims, Dallas Stoller, died in November of 2021. In this special episode of the Murdaugh Murders Podcast, you’ll hear from Dallas’ sister and father, who were in the courtroom last week when Turner got a shocking sweetheart deal of just five years probation.  He won’t have to register as a sex offender. Solicitor David Miller of the Second Circuit Solicitor’s Office agreed to the deal. Judge Markley Dennis approved the sentence.  Like Paul Murdaugh, Bowen Turner had the privilege of being represented by a state senator. State Senator Brad Hutto negotiated this shocking deal for his client to go free - even after he violated his bond conditions more than 60 times. In this episode, you will hear from Mandy & Liz tell you exactly what went wrong in this case and how this case exemplifies a much bigger problem in our judicial system.  You’ll also hear from survivor Chloe Bess, who was slut-shamed in court by Senator Brad Hutto after she was assaulted by Bowen Turner.  How can you help?

"Dear Cory": Letters, Lies And The Law (S01E37)

There is A LOT to unpack about Cory Fleming.

The Old Guard Is Changing: A Bombshell Deposition (S01E35)

A recently released deposition has revealed troubling accusations about a powerful judge who is at the helm of criminal and civil procedures in the Lowcountry.   If her involvement in the Gloria Satterfield case was as intentional as the depositions say, then the South Carolina justice system – where judges are pretty much untouchable – has a huge problem on its hands.  In this episode, Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell pick apart Chad Westendorf's deposition led by Eric Bland.

Above The Law? (S01E34)

On Monday, Alex Murdaugh’s attorneys Dick Harpootlian and Jim Griffin filed a federal lawsuit in an attempt to block Richland County from releasing more jailhouse calls through the Freedom of Information Act. In today’s episode, we tell you exactly why this case isn’t a typical true crime story and why Alex isn’t your typical (alleged) criminal. In this case, we’re dealing with a former public official and a whole lot of alleged public corruption.   As we peel back the layers of history in the Murdaugh family, We see that Alex and Paul Murdaugh’s misdeeds didn’t happen in a vacuum.  For decades, it appears like people have been looking the other way as the Murdaugh family’s unchecked power spun out of control.  See more videos on the Murdaugh Murders here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPC7aLBzSFHqIz_jDachzQA And a special thank you to our sponsors: Cerebral, Hunt-A-Killer, Bannon Law Group, Nature's Highway CBD, Embark Vet, VOURI, Hello Fresh and others.

Drug Smuggling And Operation Jackpot - What Happened To The Money? Part Two (S01E31)

Why was Alex Murdaugh (allegedly) stealing it in the first place?  Does it have anything to do with the murders?

Boulware.  In this episode, you’ll hear about the Murdaugh family’s ties to alleged drug smugglers and look at how this plays into the big picture.  Check out a video explanation of the Murdaugh / Boulware properties we discuss in this episode here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StHXgB0oSoQ Research in this podcast was provided by Will Folks And Jenn Wood.  See more videos on the Murdaugh Murders here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPC7aLBzSFHqIz_jDachzQA We want to learn more about you - please click here to fill out our Listener Survey for a chance to win an amazon gift card.

How did these people with so much wealth, power and privilege become the family in the center of a snowballing crime ring?

How Many People Will Go Down For This? (S01E29)

After Friday’s indictments, Alex Murdaugh now stands accused of stealing at least $8.4 million and faces 74 charges. If the latest indictments told us anything, it’s that Alex did not do this alone - but how many people will go down for this? And how bad will this get? In this episode, Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell walk you through every detail of Alex's newest indictments that appear to hint others are involved and may face indictments of their own soon. Attorney Justin Bamberg, who is representing at least 8 clients in this case, joins us in this episode. Justin explains how deep loyalty is in a place like Hampton, South Carolina — and how betrayed the people there feel as they reckon with the truth behind two of their most lofty businesses. ** In the last episode, it was said that Russell Laffitte was the former president of Palmetto State Bank. He is the former CEO. This episode was written by Liz Farrell.

What Happened To Hakeem Pinckney? Part One (S01E28)

Hakeem Pinckney was an inspiration. He spent his whole life overcoming the odds.  His hearing started deteriorating at a young age, but he never complained. In fact, he won a national championship in football when he was a senior at the SC School for the Deaf and Blind.  But when he was 19, he was in a horrific crash with three other family members that forever changed his life. For Hakeem, the injuries would leave him a quadriplegic dependent on a ventilator. In 2010, Alex Murdaugh, Corey Fleming and Palmetto State Bank's CEO Russell Lafitte began representing passengers of the vehicle accident, including Hakeem who was paralyzed but aware. But he persevered. His mother Pamela told us that he was improving before he died suddenly in 2011.  10 years later, Pamela learns that Murdaugh allegedly stole insurance money from the Pinckney family after the accident, and again from Hakeem's wrongful death settlement against his care facility after his ventilator was mysteriously "unplugged". In this episode, you'll hear the powerful voice of Hakeem's mother Pamela, from his former teacher, and from Justin Bamberg, who now represents at least 8 of the alleged victims of Alex Murdaugh. Justin's sights are set on justice, while Pamela just wants to know what happened to her son - something she never received from the first set of settlements.

Who Killed Maggie & Paul? Part Two (S01E26)

Almost seven months after Paul Murdaugh and Maggie Murdaugh were murdered in Colleton County, South Carolina, multiple sources close to the investigation said physical evidence directly ties Alex Murdaugh to the double homicide. We've been told that this evidence is substantial, serious and directly links Alex to this gruesome crime.  And that is a BIG deal.  In this episode, Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell reveal new information in the case as we put everything we know into context.  Do all roads lead to Alex? Also on this episode, we hear from South Carolina attorney and lawmaker Justin Bamberg again — who has stepped into the arena as a voice for victims.  And a special thank you to our sponsors: Cerebral, Betera, Aura Frames, Hunt-A-Killer, Bannon Law Group, Nature's Highway CBD, and others.

Taking On "The Firm" - Part One (S01E25)

“The law firm dropped the ball here…” Previously on the Murdaugh Murders Podcast, we told you about how Alex Murdaugh is accused of stealing more than ​​$6.2 million in alleged schemes related to his fake FORGE accounts at Bank of America dating back to 2016. He’s accused of stealing millions of dollars from clients while he was a partner at the law firm started by his great grandfather - PMPED.  But so far, PMPED has escaped accountability.  While PMPED partners have been claiming to “make Alex’s victims whole,” it appears like something else was happening behind the scenes.  On this episode, we speak with South Carolina attorney and lawmaker Justin Bamberg — who has stepped in the arena as a voice for victims.  Bamberg says a lawsuit, and possibly a class action, is likely coming against PMPED. He asks any of Murdaugh’s former clients believing they were taken advantage of to call his law firm at 803-956-5088 or email him at pmpedmypockets@bamberglegal.com. As you know, we are a mission-driven podcast - we expose the truth wherever it leads.  While accomplishing this mission we always take care to respect victims and we are sensitive to the traumatic nature of this story.  We are also very sensitive to our fans - many of which have requested MMP merchandise.

Alex Murdaugh Charged With 21 New Felonies (S01E22)

The disgraced South Carolina attorney, Alex Murdaugh, was hit with 21 new felonies from the state Grand Jury. His bond hearing — which was surrounded by skeptism — was postponed and that is a very big deal. In this episode, we discuss each one of the seven new indictments involving Alex’s alleged scheme and his new bond hearing which was mysteriously postponed. Sources have told us they expect to see hundreds of charges against Alex when all is said and done.  Some sources have told us that this case is going to be the biggest case of fraud the state — and maybe even the country — has ever seen.

Attorneys At War - Part One (S01E21)

Alex Murdaugh‘s “bulldog” defense attorneys, Dick Harpootlian and Jim Griffin, have apparently launched a war on Satterfield family attorney Eric Bland. While this might seem like a giant distraction to some, it’s important to take a deeper look at these recent moves by Dick and Jim to figure out what exactly is going on here.  Are they really trying to silence Eric Bland? Or is this just about egos? Lucky for us, Eric is not intimidated by the recent actions of the defense, and you’ll hear from him a lot this episode.  You’ll also hear from attorney Lauren Fox, a South Carolina Bar member, for legal analysis on these recent jaw-dropping actions. Also in this episode, Liz Farrell and Mandy Matney cover the recent judge "switcharoo" in this case and what that could mean.

What Happened To The Money? Part One (S01E16)

On Tuesday, November 2, 2021 Judge Daniel Hall ordered an injunction and appointed receivers to manage and recover funds that could pay alleged victims currently suing disgraced attorney Alex Murdaugh. Hall made his decision four days after attorney Mark Tinsley presented his arguments to appoint two outside parties — attorney John T. Lay Jr. and former U.S. attorney Peter M. McCoy Jr. — to have control over Alex and Buster Murdaugh’s assets, which is known as “receivership” in the court. We also hear from the attorney representing Gloria Satterfield's estate, Eric Bland whose investigation into the handling of Gloria's insurance settlement uncovered a heap of evidence which SLED and the SC Attorney General's office used to charge Alex with fraud and other indictments.

Was Alex Murdaugh Actually Shot? Part One (S01E11)

Alex Murdaugh was allegedly shot in a botched "Assisted Suicide Plot" on Saturday, September 4th, 2021. According to arrest warrants, Alex Murdaugh concocted a scheme to commit suicide with the help of Curtis "Eddie" Smith so his son Buster Murdaugh would receive a $10,000,000 insurance payout. Smith's attorney Jarrett Bouchette rejects this assertion. We also hear claims from Murdaugh's defense attorney and prosecutor's pleas for enhanced monitoring while out on bond for multiple felonies. Mandy addresses Dick Hartpoolian's comment made during Murdaugh's bond hearing.
