All about Final Moments
Final Moments will debut on Oxygen on April 3, 2022 at 7 pm EST. Some parts of the stories will be re-enacted by actors playing the suspects, victims, and other people in the victims' lives.
The series' first episode, titled Where's Dad?, will center around the disappearance of Charles Butler, who vanished after spending a night in town with his new girlfriend in 2012 in New York City. Confusing texts sent to Butler's children is what led to his killer's arrest. Through further investigation, it was revealed that Butler girlfriend's ex-boyfriend, who killed him, drove his body off a cliff and was impersonating him.
In the second episode, Death of an Influencer, the police will show how they solved the 2013 murder of a teenage social media sensation Alexis Murphy in Virginia. Police scanned her tweets to identify her killer and used surveillance footage from a local gas station to identify the man who abducted and murdered her.
The series will follow the case of Kelsey Smith in 2007 in A Fatal Shopping Trip, the 2014 vanishing of Danielle Locklear in North Carolina in Murder at the Creek, and the South Carolina slaying of convenience store clerk Willard Grandstaff in 2004 in A Convenient Crime.
The eight-episode series will also show the Tennessee rape and murder of Heather Maples from 2015 in What You Can't Unsee as well as the 2018 murder of aspiring basketball star Lamont Adair Jr in The Streets Are Talking.
Final Moments is a collaboration between Oxygen and Dick Wolf. Wolf Entertainment has also produced Oxygen series Criminal Confessions, Murder for Hire, and Cold Justice.
