Mallory Beach’s parents reveal heartbreaking moment they ‘knew’ she was dead in 20/20 documentary

The MALLORY Beach parents have revealed the heartbreaking moment they learned their daughter had died in a 20/20 special that aired on Friday.

In the 20/20 special, The Fall of House Murdaugh, Mallory’s parents detailed the heartbreaking moment their daughter’s body was found, just a week after she went missing in a boating accident.

The search for Mallory Beach lasted a week after she fell from the Murdaugh family boat in February 2019.

Countless people helped search for Mallory, including “the Department of Natural Resources, the Coast Guard, volunteers, anyone with a boat,” said Hampton County Guardian editor Michael DeWitt Jr.

“We prayed for this closure for seven days,” said Phillip Beach, Mallory’s father.

“The eighth day was a Sunday and we went to church.”

On March 3, 2019, Renee and Phillip Beach were driving home from church and stopped at the pier, where they had returned every day since their daughter disappeared.

A group of people stood there, including a man wearing a shirt that had “CORONER” written on the back.

“We knew,” Philip said.

The 20/20 special also revealed the recording of the 911 call made when Mallory’s body was discovered.

Two fishermen who were part of the volunteer search team discovered the remains in the creek.

The 911 operator asked about the nature of the emergency.

“We think we’ve found her,” was the grim reply.

Paul Murdaugh has pleaded not guilty to multiple felony charges related to Mallory Beach’s death.

The group on the boat had been “grossly intoxicated”, according to police, even though they were all underage and could not legally buy alcohol.

Paul’s family’s ties to the justice system have raised questions about whether the investigation into the teenager’s death was conducted properly.
