Death by Fame: Murder by Association (Investigation Discovery Monday February 12, 2024)



Death by Fame

Investigation Discovery’s riveting true crime series, “Death by Fame” returns for its second season with an enthralling episode titled “Murder by Association.” This thought-provoking installment delves into the suspicious circumstances surrounding the deaths of James Brown, the iconic musician who passed away on Christmas Day in 2006, and his son-in-law Darren Lumar, whose life was tragically cut short in November 2008. The episode is scheduled to air on Monday, February 12, 2024 at 9:00pm.

In this gripping tale of intrigue and conspiracy, viewers are drawn into a web of suspicion as detectives uncover shocking details about Darren Lumar’s untimely demise. Lumar was found shot multiple times – ankles, wrists, and chest – suggesting that he may have been the target of a contract killing related to his business dealings.

Lumar referred to himself as an investor and was actively involved with Lumar Worldwide Industries. His efforts focused on acquiring a company specializing in set-top boxes and removable disk drives. Unfortunately, his endeavor fell through. During their investigation, authorities discovered that Lumar had engaged in a contentious dispute with Elorian Landers, a neighboring businessman whom he threatened to kill.

Further complicating matters is Lumar’s troubled past. He had encountered legal troubles previously and even faced conviction for terroristic threats. These complexities make it challenging for investigators to identify who might have orchestrated his murder amidst numerous potential motives arising from personal vendettas or disgruntled associates.


The repercussions of Darren Lumar’s death extend beyond the confines of this case alone; they reverberate within James Brown’s family circle as well. A rift among Brown’s heirs has emerged following his passing, culminating in a court-approved settlement despite objections from court-appointed trustees responsible for safeguarding Brown’s education trust fund. These trustees voiced concerns over how the proposed settlement would significantly diminish the value of the trust.

As detectives continue to investigate this perplexing case, viewers can anticipate a meticulously crafted narrative that will attempt to uncover the truth surrounding Darren Lumar’s murder and shed light on the intricate web of relationships, business dealings, and personal conflicts that ultimately contributed to his tragic demise.
