What Will the Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal be About?
Most of you might have heard of the Murdaugh Murders at some point, but with this documentary series, you will have a clearer idea of what happened. Netflix has released an official synopsis, so let’s take a look at it before we discuss any details regarding the documentary series:
“The Murdaughs were one of South Carolina’s most prominent families, but the death of teenager Mallory Beach in a drunken boating accident began the unraveling of their legacy. When Paul Murdaugh – the alleged driver of the boat – and his mother Maggie are found brutally murdered, a century of corruption, power, and cover-ups in the Low Country is brought to light. The three-part series will feature first-hand accounts from those on the boat that fateful night, many of whom have not spoken about the crash or double homicide of Maggie and Paul until now.”
Here’s why it is important to watch Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal even if you have heard or read about this infamous scandal before. There were so many intricate details that have never been revealed to the public, so many people who were in direct relation to this case but never spoke, and it is finally time for all of that to unravel, and it is about to happen on Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal. The death of a young woman unraveled details about a family that could make people disappear with a simple snap of their fingers.

We are all looking forward to hearing from the people who have had a lot to say for far too long, and it is finally time. We are also hoping for some updates regarding the on-going case, and maybe the documentary series will let us in on that too.
Whether or not you are a fan of true crime documentaries, we highly recommend watching Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal, especially if you are looking to start somewhere. There will be a total of three episodes in this series, and we are expecting each to be an hour long. So, Netflix has three hours to tell us all about the Murdaughs through Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal.
