Murf the Surf: Jewels

Today Sunday February 5, 2023, there is a new episode of Murf the Surf: Jewels, Jesus, and Mayhem in the USA.

The Heist The New York Times marked the 150th anniversary of the Museum of Natural History in an article published in October 2019. In 1964, a group of charismatic “surfing lads” from Miami pulled off the largest jewel theft in American history at the site. Jack Roland Murphy, often known as Murf the Surf, was instrumental in the theft and went on to achieve lasting fame thanks in large part to his association with the infamous incident. What happened after Murf’s rapid rise is shrouded in mystery to this day: a spiraling narrative of horrible crime, murder, deception, and mayhem.

The four-part documentary will delve into the troubled past of the guy who earned the infamous moniker. The series, which will provide unprecedented access to Jack Roland Murphy before his death in 2020, will explore the ambiguous boundaries between truth and fiction, faith and illusion, and sanity and insanity, while also posing the pressing question of who and what we should trust.
