This is a true crime saga like no other. The Murdaugh family is one of the most prominent families in South Carolina and has served in powerful legal positions dating back nearly 100 years. Rumors swirled that Alex Murdaugh and his family could get away with anything. They have been tied to the mysterious deaths of their housekeeper, a high school classmate, and a young woman in a fatal boat crash. In June 2021, Murdaugh allegedly found his wife and younger son shot dead on their hunting lodge property. About a year later, Murdaugh was charged for their murders. The killings set off a bizarre chain of events that included Murdaugh staging his own murder. There are also nearly 100 criminal charges that are linked to him. Dr. Phil is joined by a panel of experts: former criminal prosecutor Loni Coombs; Michal Higdon, anchor and investigative reporter at WCSC-TV Charleston; forensic expert Joseph Scott Morgan; and former FBI agent Bobby Chacon to discuss this case.
