Alex Murdaugh is guilty: 6 podcasts and episodes covering the family’s true crime saga

True Crime March 3, 2023

South Carolina Lowcountry family, the Murdaughs, were influential for almost 100 years. When a boat crash occurred with a supposedly-intoxicated family member, new attention was drawn to the family’s greater arc of true crimes.

The family has undergone criminal investigations for obstruction of justice, fraud, and the double homicide of Paul Murdaugh and his mother Maggie in 2021. Additional crimes include defrauding insurance clients and Stephen Smith’s 2015 murder – a suicide-for-hire plan from patriarch, Alex Murdaugh.

In 2023, Murdaugh was found guilty and received two life sentences without the possibility of parole. Tune into these podcasts and episodes all about the Murdaugh family’s crimes.
