The streamer's three-part documentary Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal takes viewers inside a twisted, powerful South Carolina family

 If you have a taste for misleading news, you probably know 

 that Alex Murdoff is currently on trial in Walterboro, South Carolina for the murder of his wife

 And the younger son. It's the kind of story that makes true-crime mavens swoon: 

A once prominent, now disgraced lawyer is accused of a bloody heinousness. 

The Murdoff Murders: A Southern Scandal, a new three-part Netflix documentary, 

is either incredibly timely or brazenly opportunistic or, most likely, 

Both. It provides a crash course in those scandals and deaths 

who have besieged the old moneyed Murdaff family for years

,  involving a fatal boating accident, a family homeowner and 

Involves the mysterious death of a local teen, a planned suicide, and embezzlement. Millions of dollars 

 If you can't make out with this content you're not in Netflix's ever-expanding true-crime gallery

 And filmmakers Jenner Furst and Julia Willoughby Nason do a fine job spinning the yarn
