ABC’s “20/20″ is premiering exclusive interviews on Friday with the brothers of Alex Murdaugh and the family of several victims involved in the string of unusual incidents surrounding the family.
The Murdaugh family first made headlines in 2019 when Alex’s son, 19-year-old Paul Murdaugh, was involved in a boat accident that left Mallory Beach dead.
The well-known South Carolina family made headlines again last June when 22-year-old Paul Murdaugh and 52-year-old Maggie Murdaugh were murdered and discovered in their rural Colleton County home by Alex Murdaugh.
“20/20″ is taking an in-depth look at the past tragedies surrounding the family. This includes allegations that Alex Murdaugh allegedly stole insurance settlement money intended for the family of Murdaugh housekeeper, Gloria Satterfield, after she fell and died while working on their property in 2018; questions about the suspicious roadside death of Stephen Smith in 2015 and how authorities reopened the case based on information gathered during the investigation into Paul and Maggie’s murders; and just a few months ago, how Alex allegedly hired a hitman to kill him so his son, Buster Murdaugh, could collect insurance money.
The two-hour “20/20″ features exclusive interviews with Renee and Philip Beach, who open up about the loss of their daughter, Mallory Beach, in a 2019 boating accident where Paul Murdaugh was at the wheel.
The report contains never-before-seen footage from ABC News correspondent Eva Pilgrim’s interview with Alex Murdaugh’s brothers, Randy and John Marvin Murdaugh. The brothers are the only Murdaugh family members to speak publicly since the murders of Paul and Maggie Murdaugh, which remain unsolved.
The program will also feature interviews with the family of Stephen Smith and Gloria Satterfield.
Alex is currently in jail, facing dozens of charges related to his alleged assisted suicide and financial crimes.
“20/20″ airs Jan.14 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
