In BREAKING NEWS – Eric Bland and Ronnie Richter have been retained by Sandy Smith to help her get Justice for Stephen. Mandy joins Sandy and Eric in a press Conference today, Monday March 20th at 8:30am on the Bland Richter Facebook page here: 

Now that Alex Murdaugh will spend the rest of his life in prison for the murders of Maggie and Paul, it’s time to put the focus on getting answers in the Stephen Smith case.

For almost eight years, Sandy Smith has fought to get answers about her son’s murder. Whether or not Alex Murdaugh had anything to do with Stephen Smith’s death, the Murdaugh name is connected to the case in some way.

Our greatest hope right now is that the momentum from the murder trial and the powerhouse duo of Bland & Richter encourages people to come out of the shadows to finally speak up and say what they know about Stephen’s murder in 2015.

In this episode, we talk about the reasoning behind the exhumation and how private exhumations work. Smith’s family believes he was murdered, and they want an unbiased look at his body and an accurate determination of his cause of death based on facts. At the date of this release the Go Fund Me has raised over $61,000. 

We also catch up on Russell Laffitte’s attempt to use Alex Murdaugh’s witness stand exoneration as grounds for a new trial. And we take a look at ways community members can help get answers in cold cases.

Murdaugh Murders Podcast co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell — and everyone’s favorite attorney Eric Bland — talk about the next steps in the Smith case and how people can get answers in cases that have gone cold.
