Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Monica, INFAMY: WHEN FAME TURNS DEADLY is a one-hour true-crime docuseries that explores celebrity cases where notoriety and fame turn fatal. Each 60-minute episode unravels the mystery and the motives behind a different crime, revealing a dark side to being in the public eye when betrayal, jealousy, and greed lead to tragedy. Cases featured in the eight-episode first season include the murder of NBA player Lorenzen Wright and the investigation of his shocking death; hip-hop artist on the rise Young Greatness, who was gunned down under mysterious circumstances in his hometown of New Orleans; a runway model found dead at the bottom of a swimming pool; and a popular Chicago radio personality targeted by someone nobody could expect.
On Monday, July 26, 2021 at 10pm ET/PT, VH1 premiered "Murder on the Mic," the season finale of INFAMY: WHEN FAME TURNS DEADLY. John "Fuzzy" Atkins was found dead in a residential neighborhood more than 30 miles from his home. Could it have been a crime of passion? A club scene rival? Or robbery gone wrong?
