Description

Season 2: Murders at Whiskey Creek - We follow world champion surfer Jack Roland Murphy as he pulls off the biggest jewel heist in American history. Things turn deadly as he is implicated in two murders afterwards. Interviews with him and his accomplices expose even more murders, and an even darker story.

Season 1: DB Tuber - News of the crime spread across the internet like wildfire. The story of a football hero turned bank robber shocked the sleepy town where the heist occurred, and became a worldwide sensation. People were aghast as the disgraced athlete told his incredible story. There was only one problem. It wasn’t the whole story. Not by a long shot. 

From USA Today & Wondery comes The Sneak. A show that digs into spectacular true crime stories from the world of sports. New episodes every Tuesday.

After a failed marriage, however, his mood turned south, and he made a decision to enter into a life of crime.

We visit Jack Murphy now, and get to know the man who is somehow out of prison, and preaching the gospel of his lord and savior, Jesus Christ. But a few actions suggest Murphy may not be quite the saved man he proclaims to be.
Murf the Surf offers his explanation for what happened at Whiskey Creek, where two young women were found bludgeoned, shot, and stabbed. And the last man they were seen with was Jack Murphy.

Good riddance! This man was pure evil no matter what he claimed to have done in the second half of his life.

I always thought that Monroe would be a kinda terrible place to live. The fact that they expect others in their community to help rebuild a house actually changes my mind a bit.

it's a good story and kept my interest but why make six super short episodes? It's obviously only enough story for 1 normal length episode. maybe two. I'm assuming it's about being able to cram as much ad time in as possible.

Love the story but this guy is NOT a victim of circumstance. He simply made poor choices throughout his life.
