True Crime Buzz: A Timeline Of What To Know Ahead Of Oxygen’s Murdaugh Special

You can watch "Alex Mudaugh. Death. Deception. Power." here or on Peacock starting January 6.

The Murdaugh name was once associated with a legal dynasty in the South Carolina Lowcountry — three generations of the family were named solicitor in the state's 14th circuit district. But a series of untimely deaths, accusations of financial impropriety, and an alleged assisted suicide insurance fraud scheme have thrust the Murdaugh name into the national spotlight.

The accusations against Alex Murdaugh — who authorities say paid someone to shoot him in the head so his son could receive a $10 million life insurance payout — as well as as well as the murders of Alex's wife, Maggie, and son Paul, will be explored in a new Oxygen special “Alex Murdaugh: Death. Deception. Power.” The upcoming show will also look at other incidents tied to the Murdaugh family, including a boating accident that killed 19-year-old Mallory Beach in 2019 and the death of the family's housekeeper, Gloria Satterfield, in their home in 2018.

Troy Roberts, an award-winning network news journalist, has been on the ground in South Carolina investigating this case over the last several months. His work will be included in “Alex Murdaugh: Death. Deception. Power.," which premieres Sunday, December 12 at 8/7c. Matt Harris and Seton Tucker, the hosts of the podcast “Murdaugh Family Murders: Impact of Influence" will also contribute to the upcoming series.

The new Oxygen special was unveiled during a panel discussion at "CrimeCon at Home: Holiday Escape," which aired Friday night. 

CrimeCon at Home is produced by Red Seat Ventures and presented by Oxygen.
