Moving Past Murder Episode #77 highlights include:
• This episode also features a segment of my Psychopath Showdown episode, comparing my father Dr. Jack Boyle to Chris Watts.
Chris Watts is a name that has become synonymous with one of the most shocking and tragic crimes in recent memory. The case began to unfold in August of 2018, when Watts reported his wife Shanann and their two daughters, Bella and Celeste, missing from their home in Frederick, Colorado. He later confessed to killing all three of them and disposing of their bodies in a nearby oil field where he worked.

Nikki Sue Entzel was once a loving wife until she met her lover Earl Howard, and decided to take matters into her own hands. In 2019, Nikki and her lover murdered her husband, Chad Entzel, and tried to cover it up as a suicide.

On day 20 of the trial, the state presented a comprehensive timeline that revealed inconsistencies in Murdaugh's statements to authorities. The state also revealed a possible new motive for the murder: in May 2021, Maggie was concerned about drug use and researching pills online after finding several bags of pills in Murdaugh's computer bag.
• Intergenerational Trauma and the Legacy of The Murdaugh Family
PMPED, the law firm founded by Randolph Murdaugh Sr. in 1910, has been a fixture in Hampton as a one-person law firm for over a century. However, the legacy of the firm is shrouded in controversy and scandal.
Recent findings suggest that Randolph Murdaugh Sr. may have committed suicide in a train accident, rather than the accident being purely accidental. This revelation sheds light on the possible origins of the intergenerational trauma that has plagued the Murdaugh family for generations.
