True Sunlight Co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell are finally free from the constant noise of convicted murderer Alex Murdaugh and ready to once again focus on the case that deserves all the sunshine: Who killed Stephen Smith? It’s been nearly nine years since Stephen — a teenager from Hampton County with high aspirations to become a doctor one day… ground zero of Murdaugh territory — was found dead in the road, less than a mile from his home. While the murders of Maggie and Paul Murdaugh have brought a new focus to Stephen’s investigation — which had gone cold almost immediately — Stephen’s mother is no closer to getting the answers she so desperately wants. In the meantime, a number of people have come out of the woodwork with claims of wanting to help Sandy only to betray her in the end. In this episode Mandy and Liz talk about the red flags they keep seeing, as well as give an update on two people who have wrongly been identified by one media agency as people of interest.
