Eight years after 19-year-old Stephen Smith’s body was found on a rural South Carolina road, investigators are finally saying the thing his family has known all along: He was not killed in a hit-and-run... STEPHEN WAS MURDERED. MMP co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell talk to Stephen’s mother Sandy Smith about the latest developments in one of the most heart-breaking cases connected to convicted murderer Alex Murdaugh and his family. And we share key moments from Eric Bland (Co-host of our Cup Of Justice podcast) and partner Ronnie Richter's press conference announcing their representation of Sandy Smith. To learn more about the planned Independent Exhumation and Autopsy for Stephen, click here: A private medical examiner must be present from the start of the exhumation through the examination period at a cost of approximately $750 per hour. It is a huge expense, but we are hoping that with your support we can make this happen and finally get the answers we need. If you can give, we thank you for your generosity. If you cannot give, we would appreciate you sharing and praying for justice for Stephen. We believe 2023 is Stephen's year. Thank you all again for the love and support. We all want to drink from the same Cup Of Justice — and it starts with learning about our legal system.
