1 Feb 2000 - 29 Feb 2000

  1. I am a criminal justice major with a pre law emphasis at California State University Fullerton. I was first introduced to this case while browsing in my local bookstore I stumbled upon Greentown by Timothy Dumas. I quickly read the book as well as Mark Furman's and Dominick Dunn's. I was fascinated by this case and am convinced that the killer is Michael Skakel. I am also appalled at the fact that he might be tried as a juvenile and under the same juvenile laws that were applicable at the time. This was a horrific and exceedingly brutal crime against humanity and should be punished as such.

  2. I have just finished reading Mark Fuhrman's book. I had not known of this case until reading a newspaper article in January and the article in Time. That's when I got Murder In Greenwich. Fuhrman did an excellent job of bringing the personalities out in all the participants in this sad case. I intend to follow developments closely.

  3. We have read both Murder in Greenwich by Mark Fuhrman and A Wealth of Evil (formerly published as Greentown) by Timothy Dumas. After reading these books, and watching numerous television programs regarding the Moxley murder, there is no doubt in our minds that Martha's murderer was a member of the Skakel Family. We also believe that either the Greenwich Police Department was extremely incompetent and that the Skakel money was able to buy Michael 25 years of freedom. We applaud Mark Fuhrman for his investigation of this murder case. I was stunned to read on page 277 of Dumas' book, A Wealth of Evil, that someone from Belle Haven, upon learning about Furhman's investigation, had the audacity to say, "Poor Dorthy. She'll grasp at anything now." I cannot fathom the devastation of losing a child in this manner.

    To Mark Fuhrman and Timothy Dumas: Thank you for the excellent books on this tragic murder. To Dorthy and John Moxley: May you find peace in knowing that if justice is not served on Michael Skakel in this lifetime, he will face God's ultimate justice. Be strong and have faith in God.

  4. it is truly a shame that she was killed by these boys and they have gotten away with it all these years...i thought they would get over once again with the statue of limitations...but i guess someone is determine to see these or this man to jail.

  5. I read the book about the murder of Martha it was the one that
    Mark Furman wrote. I was very touched by the story. I was also
    shocked when I seen in the Equirer that the killer had came forward.
    To the family my love..

  6. First, I would like to say that I have never responded to anything on the INTERNET before. Martha's tragedy affected me in more ways than one.
    Dear Dorothy,
    I became aware of your daughter's tragedy when I watched a TV show profiling her death. What struck me was that Martha would be the same age as I. The clothes she wore - the rugby shirt was the same that I wore at her age. I was born in Westchester County, NY, and moved to Marin County, CA, when I was 8. I guess this was kind of a reverse move for your children. The thing is, after living in CA for 6 years, my family moved to the state of Washington (Seattle area for 3 years) when I was 14, and moved back to Marin when I was 16. We moved to a different school district from the one I left also. I know firsthand how hard it is to be accepted into a new environment. Your daughter was a very special person. She (and your son) could adapt and be accepted by anyone. They were popular and so well liked.
    Again, your daughter's clothes in the pictures hit home for me.
    I have read both Timothy Dumas's and Mark Fuhrman's books.
    I can only hope that Michael Skakel gets convicted for your daughter's murder. I have so much respect for your family and the way you have dealt with this. I pray that the truth will prevail.

  8. I lived and worked in Greenwich for a number of years and have experienced firsthand how the Greenwich Police Dept. operates. In 1990 I was arrested in a demonstration against torture of animals by L'oreal. I was arrested with several others for "criminal trespassing" at the house of James Nixon, V.P. of Loreal. The Greenwich police did not give the required warning to leave the property before making the arrest. The alleged "crime" was knocking on Mr. Nixon's door to deliver a sheaf of petitions against animal abuse. I was cuffed and shoved into a "prisoner van" but was never read my rights or even told what the charges were. The cops even arrested a photo-journalist from the Greenwich Time! He was only there to cover the event for the paper. I later found out from a confidential source that the arrest had been ordered "from the top" i.e. the corrupt Greenwich bigwigs running the town. At the time, I hosted a radio show on WGCH, Greenwich radio. When my picture appeared on the front page of the Greenwich time, with one of the arresting officers pointing his finger in my face, I was even threatened with losing my job at the radio station.
    (Interstingly enough, attorney Michael Sherman represented the photo-journalist when we were all hauled into court.)
    It comes as no surpise that the investigation of Martha Moxley's brutal murder was bungled so badly. As author Mark Fuhrman puts it, it was "a cover-up of a screw-up. I only hope that after 25 years of unimaginable suffering the Moxley family will see justice done.

  9. I read the book on the murder of Martha Moxley and it is clear
    to me that Michael Scakel is guilty if you take all the evedence
    and put it to gether and how he was as a person and all the times
    he admitted to killing he a person would not just say something
    like that and not mean it. Well I wish the Moxley family would
    get all they deserve in this and I do give all my condoence to the
    and I hope a jury will find that Michael is the Killer and soon
    the case is over 25 years old. God bless the Moxley's and Martha.

  10. I was 17 years old when Martha Moxley was murdered and I vaguely remembered it happening. However, in recent years, it has been in the news on and off and I must say I am captivated by it. I read Dominick Dunne's book and am now in the process of reading "Murder in Greenwich" by Mark Furhman. I believe this case will be brought to justice, even 25 or more years too late. To the Moxley family, be strong, have faith in God and believe that Martha will rest in peace. To the Skakel family, be strong, have faith in God and know that justice WILL be done, if not now, then for eternity. I don't know how you sleep at night.

  12. Why do the wheels of justice turn so slowly? Maybe we are looking for rationality in an irrational world. I wish I knew how to provide comfort for the families and friends of all murder victims. My son was attacked and savagely beaten four years ago, and no one was ever arrested for the crime. Do we have to be wealthy and prominent to have justice? I hope not. I am sure Martha was a lovely young woman, and this crime is sickening. May God have mercy on the guilty party. I have none! Rest in eternal peace.

  13. What the Greenwich police department needs is a big kick in the ass. Are these people just plain stupid or did they all take kick backs from the Skakel family. How many more cases to we have to see where the obvious is mistaken for shear stupidity. This case along with the Ramsey and Simpson case is nothing more than another insult to everyones intelligence. Are we all plain idiots that will believe everthing that is told to us or do we actually see what is happening and just put it out of sight and out of mind.

    Stand up and make yourselves heard loud and clear that we will not tolerate the incompetence that the state of Ct. and the Greenwich police department have done.

    I am fed up with hearing about these cases of wealth and power. Everyone should be treated equal or the Goverment should just make up a list of how much each crime will cost to commit and save all of us from the idiotic publicity.

    Let's change the system with this case or just turn our backs and accept the hard cold facts that money buys justice.

  16. I am going to school to become a police officer. In a few years, I hope to go into investigations. If it wasn't for Mark Furman,this case would still be lingering with doubt and speculation. Mark Furman is a great investigator, and I hope that the Grand Jury will prosecute soon. To the Moxley's, your trust in Mark, and in God has finally paid off. I hope now you can find closure and Martha can finally rest in peace.:)

  17. I was born and raised in Greenwich until 1977. My parents still live there. Martha was just a few years younger than me. Growing up in Greenwich I believe left me very naive about the real world until I moved to California. I'm glad to see that this has finally come out in the open and justice will be served. My sympathy goes out to you and your family Mrs. Moxley.

  18. I am reading the Mark Furman book and have been reading every article I can find about this case. I am the same age as Martha Moxley would be and grew up with a similiar crowd and circumstances. I can't help but think this could have easily happened in my circle of friends. There are so many similarities, its spooky. I am so sorry about what happened to Martha, her family, friends and community. I hope justice is finally served soon.

  20. A recent TV program caught my interest so I bought Fuhrman's book. Martha and her case now fill many of my daily thoughts. While it looks as though one Skakel will face punishment for this crime, more of them knew and covered. They'll ALL pay some day in jail, hell, or both, and somehow I have to believe that Martha knows that.

  21. I have just finished reading Mark Fuhrman's Murder in Greenwich. I find it appalling, but not surprising, that the Greenwich/Connecticut police departments allowed themselves to be intimidated by the wealth and status of the Skakel family. At some point I hope someone takes charge of this investigation and brings closure for the Moxley family. I have heard reports that Michael Skakel would be tried as a juvenile and/or that he might not be tried at all because of a statute of limitations. How ridiculous. More than likely, he murdered Martha Moxley and has been laughing at the law ever since, with the help of his family. I don't believe for one minute that he has lost a moment's sleep over his crime. Unfortunately, our judicial system leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to justice for the victim of a crime.

  22. I read the book about Martha's case. I have to say that is completely disturbs me. I can't believe that this case has been carrying on for this long. I pray for Martha's family and friends. I think that what happened to Martha is extremely saddening. I can only imagine how it must have felt to have been put through this treduous incident. I know some day this case will be solved. Relief would be only half of what people will be feeling.

  30. hello! my name is ashlee lambert and my best friend was killed on may 10, 1997. and the killer was never brought to court on anything more than involuntary man slaughter! she was in a car with this guy and his two buddies when he was trying to get his hand down her pants(he was also high) and took his eyes off the road when the car slammed into a tree, throwing her helpless body through the windshield and smacking her head into the tree. The impact was so hard it through her back into the car, where she layed bleeding to death as the driver started yelling and telling her to get out of the car and screming at his friends to pull her out. They didn't even hear him, they just gazed in horror as he pulled her out of the carand onto the ground, starting to punch her telling her to wake up. and then the police sirens came and he fled the scene while his friends stood there trying to get her awake. then she was rushed to the hospital where she died shortly after she was brought in the doors.
    I bet you are wondering how i know all this, well the two friends were tool to court and testified the whole but it was enough to convict the jury, so he was let off on involuntary manslaughter and only received two years with probation in juvenille hall! and after his conviction his friends were brought up on charges of attempted rape, manslaughter and position of marijuana. and the driver testified against them and the crak head jury bought his story. they are now spending 15-20 years in prison without paroll.
    this goes to show how the guilty gets away with anything in this country and the innocent ones are the ones that get punishment. my best friend's murder will never be brought to true justice but hopefully your's will. I pray that God will keep you all safe throughtout your days on earth. You'll be with in my prayers always, ashlee lambert

  31. Well big surprise.. The almighty buck has once again proved
    that "The buck stops here" when an "influential" family is
    involved. What is disturbing, is that the cops in the case
    ignored their sworn oath and instead pledged allegiance to
    wealthy Skakels. What if it had been one of those cops'
    child that was murdered? You can bet they'd want to know who
    did it and NOW, not 25 years later.

    It just goes to show, that all the money in the world can't
    buy a functional, loving, non-substance abusing family! It
    can buy a lot of therapy, but I really think that the
    majority of the Kennedy's and Skakel's are far beyond even
    admitting to themselves what arrogant jerks they are,
    therefore, rendering them "beyond help."

    I hope John and Dorthy Moxley get some peace, closure and
    satisfaction from seeing the guilty party pay the price.
    It's good to see that someone isn't letting a cold blooded
    murder go unsolved. Principles are something that are within
    us. Clearly, the Skakel's and most of the Kennedy's don't
    have them. Principles can't be bought- and therein lies
    the problem.

  32. What a wonderful site this is. It really updates me after reading the book Mark Fuhrman. Why are so many people protecting Thomas if he is innocent? Why do you never see his picture in the paper or on the news or even on this website? I sure think that justice will previl here. And I also say that it doesnt matter who they are related to, murder happens all over for all reasons and is protected in small cses as well as large ones. My peace be with the Moxley family who has had to endure this tragidy for so long with no answers! Let Martha rest in peace!

  34. I really don't know what to say except that from the moment I heard about this case I had to get everything I could get my hands on to read. Obviously, I never knew Martha, who would be the same age as me now, but I certainly feel as if I do. To her family and friends, God bless and keep you and give you strength and encouragement. Justice will soon be served. It will not, unfortunately, bring back Martha, but at least there will be some closure. I truly wish that there was something more that I could do than simply sign a guestbook. I welcome any suggestions anyone might have. I don't know entirely why this case holds a special place in my heart, but it does. As silly as it sounds, please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. Martha is still alive in your hearts and memories, as she is in those who have signed this guestbook. Thank you for the opportunity to be in touch with others who are interested in this case and who will forever remember Martha. Blessings......Christine Snyder, La Porte, IN

  35. after reading both A Season in Purgatory (Dunne) and Murder in Greenwich (Furman), I am convinced that there is a different kind of "justice" for the privileged few. It is with great hope and anticipation that Martha's killer, Thomas Skakel will be brought to justice, finally. Let's hope it doesn't get too technical like the Simpson case.

  36. After 24+ years since Martha died, I am sure Michael Skakel remembers that tragic night very well. He may put on a false facade as if he did not kill her, but in his mind he will never ever forget what he did. All the wealth and power his family has is useless...his relatives can testify to that. Michael, you must be a very scared man when it comes to the night. You and your family and all your supporters belong in the trash bin. I am sure you will confess one day........

  37. My heart goes out to the Moxley family. It is unbelievable that 25 years has passed and still no one has answered for this murder! It does seem that the Moxely's may have some closure soon. I hope so anyway. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty. It does however seem that the Skakel family is hiding something. And to think that money can cover up a murder!!!!! That is unreal. For Dorothy and John, please remember the time that you had with Martha, and remember that one day justice will be handed down. I truly believe that what goes around, comes around. The Skakel's and the Kennedy families have suffered many tragidies. A lot of people feel sorry for them and call their fate's a CURSE. I call it, what goes around, comes around. You get what you put out there. To the person that did this horrible deed: Please, turn yourself in, admit what you have done and let the Moxley family have some kind of closure now. That is the least you can do. You took something from them that you can never replace, but you can give them closure to have this horrible tragedy put to rest. To the Moxley family again, I will pray everyday for you and your families, that God will help you have peace in your hearts. Keep fighting until the justice is served and Martha can finally rest in peace. God Bless you! To Michael Skakel: If you did does this horrible thing, confess, pay your dues and give peace to a family that has suffered enough. You now have a family of your own now so you can imagine the pain you would feel if someone took your young son or your wife from you. DO THE RIGHT THING!

  38. I only heard on the Moxley Case today. I saw a banner AD for the new book that came out. The picture of Martha got to me for some reason, so I had to check it out. I live in a town that solves crime much the same way Belle Haven does, which is means it doesn't solve our crime. I've lived here all my life (21 years) and we have had appox. 5 murders in that time. None were solved. So I relate to the outrage on that respect. How can you feel safe in a town that can't catch its murders? I think that this case could go along way toward changing that if it wanted too.
    As for the Moxley family, I can't even begin to relate to the suffering you have had to deal with for 25 years. Having a child murdered is terrible enough, but living with not knowing WHO is responsible had to be your private hell. Or knowing who but watching them evade justice for so many years had to be even worse. From what I had read so far yours is a family of great courage and strength. And I am sure Martha has looked down on you and yours in pride.
    God Bless!

  46. Hi,I am a 15 year old girl. I recently found the book "Murder in Greenwich" laying around my house. I picked it up and started reading it and since then I haven't been able to put it down. My heart goes out to Mrs. Moxley and John Moxley who can finally come to terms with the death of Martha now that Michael has confessed to the murder. It is also too bad that Mr. Moxley could not have lived to see the day that justice was prevailed in this case. His only daughter's murder was finally solved... Being the same age as Martha was when she was murdered and growing up in a tight knit family just like the Moxley's, I really identified with this story, and it touched me. I hope that the Moxley family can have some peace of mind now that the killer was found...

He is in no way responsible for this reprehensible act as the always-fabulous Mickey Sherman will prove at trial!!!

  50. I have followed this case for many years. It is about time that Michael Skakel be brought to justice. However, I believe the entire Skakel family should be brought to justice-they obviously worked hard at a cover up for many, many years. I was born approximately the same time as Martha--what a shame she was not able to live a full life. I pray her killer will be finally brought to justice!

  52. As I am still in touch with only one other of my nearly 1,000 classmates of Martha's Sophomore class, I would be curious to learn how many others have been seeking closure, i.e. justice on this issue all these years other than myself. We in that class of '78 never had any doubt as to the guilty party, but I cannot understand what has taken the justice system of this Nation so long to come to the same conclusions we all drew the day we returned to school after that Halloween. One of my neighbors and busmates was a best pal of Martha's and I have never forgotten how that crime deveastated her. Indeed, all my Halloweens since that time have been dedicated to Martha. There is no time an Eagles song has not played since then that I haven't reflected on her tragic loss and the travesty of justice that has protected the guilty ever since.How many times have you all heard Eagles songs these past 25 years? Only the Kennedy name protected the S.O.B.,that's what my Sophomore class thought. I want to make that very clear...we never had any doubts. I could get really wound up, after all this thing has bothered me for 25 years but they're on the right track now. I would be interested to hear from any other members of my class. Rest in peace Martha. You are not forgotten.

  54. Mark Fuhrman's first book, "Murder in Brentwood" convinced me that O.J. Simpson was truly guilty. Mark's Second book, "Murder in Greenwich" is intriguing and yet sad, as to the loss of your daughter. I too came from a family that was wild and undisciplined, as did the suspect Michael Skakel......I never had a dad to control and love me............Had it not been for the God of Israel, Jesus Christ.....I probably would have ended up a murderer.....my condolences for your loss.......may the Lord grant you peace Dorthy....I believe that Michael is the one who committed the act.......If He escapes, yet again justice....He will never escape God's ultimate justice after death....

  55. I have been studying this case for awhile.One particular aspect I would like to see more investigation into is this: Michael Skakel supposedly left his house at about 9:30 PM on the evening of October 30, 1975 to accompany 2 other brothers to bring home his cousin who lived on Cliffdale Road in Greenwich.Is it not possible that Michael was let out the car before arriving there or that he left the cousin's house to go back to his home? Think about it...there is a 1/2 hour time frame between 9:30PM and 10:O0PM when some dogs barked intensely in Martha's neighborhood.Also, why would Michael say he was in Martha's yard around 11:30PM..peeping and climbing in a tree to throw pebbles at Martha's window? I believe those 2 time frames are of utmost importance in solving this case. Hope to hear from others regarding this.....

  57. I've learned a few things about the Martha Moxley case since it reopened sometime in 1998. I'm sorry to hear that she's been dead nearly 25 years and those responsible for her death has not yet come to justice. I feel sorry for her family. I'll keep myself posted on this case, including what Michael Skakel and his lawyers have to say about the case. I might find out who killed Martha Moxley.

  58. Just finished Mark Furhman's book on the Marhta Moxley case and I just wanted to add my words of encouragement to the family. As the father of two young daughters and a police officer, I only imagine what the family has had to endure all these years. Furhman is obviously a top-notch investigator and I hope that this case will in some way serve to vindicate him in the eyes of the American public (even though he probably doesn't want it or need it). As a cop, I am embarassed by the actions of the Greenwich P.D., both during and after the "investigation." God Bless the Moxley family and thank you Mark Fuhrman for polishing the badge!

  60. i saw the a&e program on martha moxley's murdercase, but after viewing this site and seeing photos of her, i am saddened. it seems so much more real to me now, looking at her photos,i felt so sad thinking of the horrific crime and the grief that all her loved ones have endured.i am a firm believer in what goes around comes around, and whether or not it takes 20-30 years, it always happens. another comment i would like to make is in regards to two comments left in this guest book. one is to the person by the name of joe ricci: are you for real? yes, there is such a thing as due process, and innocent until proven guilty, but wake up moron!the facts are there, and all points to michael skakel! he's guilty,and the evidence to support this is extremely overwhelming!!another comment is to the person darlene holcomb, you stated that you hope the"kennedys finally pay" this isnt a kennedy crime! what are the kennedys paying for? yes, im sure their name influenced many factors in this case, but to say they need to pay is ridiculous. this is not a kennedy crime, this is about michael skakel, not the kennedy family as a whole. you are irrational. the only other thing i have to say is god bless mrs.moxley, and the friends of martha who have kept her name and cause alive. justice will be served, you mark my words. the guilty parties involved know what they have done, and may think they have gotten away with it....not a chance!

  61. I saw this story fist air on A&E's "City Confidential" I am very sorry for the Moxley family I know that they have endured a great loss and can only hope that I never have to know what that feels like. I hope that Michael Skakel is tried as an adult and gets the punishment he deserves. He was able to enjoy things in life Martha will never experience. Like driving a car, getting married, and having a child. These are a few thing we take for granted in life. When Michael Skakel took these things from Martha he also took these precious moments from her family. I am going to read Mark Furhman's book and will follow this case to the end. I can only hope that if they solve this case even 25 years late that poor JonBenet Ramsey will someday also see justice..God bless

  63. I knew nothing about Martha Moxely before I saw this website except that she was murdered and one of Ethel Kennedy's nephews was suspect. She finally has a face and I see that she was a real person and the whole story means more to me now. I hope she rests in peace for eternity and her family can finally begin to live life again. What her tragedy for the Moxleys - He killed Martha and ruined her mother, father and brother's lives -- 4 lives taken away in a split second of rage. I hope justice is finally served.

  64. I read Mark Furhams book about this murder and was sickened to learn of the special treatment of the Skakel family. I think it is ridiculous that they try him as a juvenile. The punishment should be harsher since he has lived most of his life in freedom, knowing what he did to that poor little girl. He took her life, and her family lives with that everyday. May God Bless the Moxley family and give them some peace of mind that this coward has finally come forward and admitted what he did. I just hope that some judge has the guts to do the right thing.

  65. I know that Martha is looking down from heaven and is smiling that her killer has finally confessed and that over 25 years later that she is still loved and cared about. Although I never knew her, I have kids myself and know that she really didn't deserve to have her life ends this way. I know that she had so many things to live for. May God Bless Martha and help bring her family a closure to this all.

  74. I am 15 years old, and today for the first time, I heard about the Martha Moxley murder. I must say that I am deeply saddened by the loss the family suffered. Martha, a beautiful, healthy, young girl, did not deserve death, especially in such a violent way. But words can not and will not express true feelings...the feelings in my heart. I am a devout Christian and I believe in the power of God. We might not know who the murderer is, but Martha, now an angel in Heaven, and God, know. I would like to extend my condolences to the Moxley family, and to friends.
    I promise you all, the murderer will be found and convicted. You all must have faith in God. Remember the true words of Jesus Christ, " Ask, and you shall recieve, for you are my people, whom I love, and so does my father in Heaven, God. " My prayers are with you...

  76. If Skakel is tried as a juvenile and gets off with a mere
    slap on the wrist then it will just go to show that gee, if
    you kill someone and you're under 18 then just don't get
    caught right away and you can "get away with murder". I honestly do not know who the Governor of CT is; but I guarantee you all that if Skakel does get away with it; then everyone in the world will not only know who the Governor is of CT, but they will know what an asshole
    that person is for not intervening!!!

  77. I read about this terrible tragedy when it happened, and I felt so sad for the Moxley family.
    Just recently I found out that Martha's father, David, was an old friend of mine from high school (Atchison,KS). He was a very nice young man. Over the years I had lost track of him. When I read about Martha's murder, I did not even associate the David Moxley I knew with her father. I was sorry to learn that he apparently died in 1988 of a heart attack. I am sure that Martha's murder contributed to his dying at such a young age.
    I pray and trust that this horrible crime will soon have resolution, and that the murderer will be convicted and punished for his crime. It has dragged on too long.
    I am so thankful that the case has been reopened so that soon there may be justice at last for Martha and rest for her family.
    My prayers and thoughts are with Mrs. Moxley and John.

  78. While the Dumas and Furhman books certainly make it look as though Michael Skakel killed Martha, I'd like to see what Skakel and his lawyers have to say, now, in his defense. There are an awful lot of people out there who believe Michael Skakel did it. They will continue to think so at least until the public hears his side of the story - which apparently has changed at least once, already, during the past 24 years. Let's get the truth out, once and for all, and let eveyone involved - and there are a lot of people involved - close out this terribly sad event. Here's to Justice - once and for all.

  81. My heart is with Mrs. Moxley. After reading Furhman's Book, A Murder In Greenwich, I was outraged that Rushton Skakel was able to buy protection for his son-- a hidious character,capable of God knows what. I wonder what other violent cruelties his little fat monster has gotten away with since 1975? If Dad & all who helped cover up what Michael Skakel did, were now also held accountable,It would be true justice! Obstruction of Justice for 25 long years!
    May god Bless Martha, Mrs. Moxley and family with justice!

  83. Just an opinion.
    If Michael Skakel had confessed when he was 15, 16, 17, or
    even 21, I can see the justification of the courts treating
    him as a juvenile and seeking rehabilitation. But today,
    he is a 39 year old man, who should face the consequences
    for his actions, as an adult!

This is truly a parents worst nigtmare. When you have children you never imagine that something so brutal could ever happen.

  89. Well I see that once again the name Kennedy is spelled G-U-I-L-T-Y even for a cousin with a different name. No trial needed in this case I guess. Just follow along and believe whatever that lying piece of crap Furman tells everyone.
    A true friend of Martha would want the trial televised and be ready to accept an aquittal because that may just be what SHOULD happen.
    Remember there was no one taking the other side when that so called detective was writing his book.
    It'd be a shame if the murder goes unsolved BUT no one is helped by convicting the innocent.

I DO know how you feel, my mother was murdered and now they are trying to say that the man that murdered her didn't get a fair trial, they want to give him life in prison instead of the death penalty...I am wondering, where is the justice in that?? My mother didn't have that option when he decided to shoot her and almost killed me too...be strong..be courageous..and always believe that there is justice..peace.

The information I got from your web site in connection with this crucial piece of evidence was not very clear to me. Maybe reading more about the subject will help me out.
    Prayers for the Moxley family and their strength.

  115. Born and raised in California, I never knew Martha Moxley. but looking at her photo on the tabloids and newspapers tells me that she was a very special girl. Because of that, I feel a special keen interest and intense sense of injustice in this case. To Martha's mom, I offer a warm and comforting hug, and these words, "Ma'am, we share in your loss, and because of that, we will all see to it that justice shall prevail." with warmest regards, Victor Luna.

  116. It is horrifying that a crime such as this is still unresolved after a quarter century, despite the fair amount of evidence in hand. I sincerely hope that this ordeal will conclude shortly, and in a just manner.

  120. I am not optimistic about a conviction in criminal court. After watching the O.J. Simpson trial I don't think it is possible to convict anyone of anything who has unlimited financial resources to spend on a defence. One of the few ways justice can be administered is to have Skakel stuck with absolutely staggering legal bills and then start a civil action.

I pray justice will be served as it should have been 24 years ago. It has been and always will be so totally obvious who killed Martha, how could no one do anything about?

  123. I became interested in this in 1997 when I read a published article in the Hartford Courant. After that, I went on to read Dominick Dunne's book "A Season in Purgatory" and then "Greentown" by Timothy Dumas. I haven't read Mark Furman's book yet but eventually will. I am in shock that this was all real and it took this long for an investigation. I don't know who is to blame for this but am offering much support to the Moxley family that they may find peace when this is put to trial and the truth is at hand. We all must learn to be and teach our children to be accountable for our own actions.

  124. I have just started reading Mark Fuhrman's book and I am only on chapter 9. It has taken about 2 days to read to this point and it seems very clear to me what should have taken place 20 plus years ago. But if OJ can still walk the streets free should we all be that surprised...
    I very much hope on Tuesday all goes well for the Moxley family its long time coming and we can only hope it was worth the wait. And the Skakel boys Michael,Thomas or both get what they deserve.

    Benicia, Ca US - Saturday, February 05, 2000 @ 19:15:19 EST
  125. I am amazed at the lack of anger Mrs. Moxley has towards
    the Skakel family and Thomas in particular. I admire her
    strength. I can't imagine how Thomas lived with the guilt
    all these years. I pray justice will be served.

  126. Just finished watching "City Confidential" show about Martha Moxley. It jogged my memory of a recent news report about a relative of the Kennedy's being arrested for a 25 year old murder. I decided to get on the web and research to get more info on the case. I found this web site. I admire the efforts of everyone involved in putting it together. It is extremely well done.

    I hope that justice will soon be served. As presented by the A&E show, there is no doubt as to who committed this hideous act.

  130. Just finished watching the re-run of "City Confidential" which peaked my interest in this case. I had read some of the recent articles regarding the grand jury, but since it isn't "breaking" news had forgotten about it. "Forgotten about" is what the Skakals were hoping everyone else would do also. For Martha and her family I hope justice is served on Feb. 8, 2000. (25 years to late!)

    ago justice4.com and feel honored to have marthamoxley.com as a charter link. I also have a website on another quarter century old case that is finally going to trial soliah.com This is about an alledged member of the Symbionese Liberation Army (Patty Hearst kidnapping) captured here in Minnesota in June 1999. We support the current pipebombing conspiracy trail proceedings and are working towards eventual Murder charges against members of the SLA for the murder of Myrna Opsahl, a doctor's wife gunned down during a robbery of the Crocker Bank while taking the depositing the church collection money. In all such cases including yours let us hope that
    justice delayed is not justice denied. The internet can be a powerful tool for getting the facts out, that's why I started soliah.com and justice4.com . My condolences and best wishes to the Moxley family

  135. It angers me that a wealthy family can shield its delinquent children from the punishments
    they deserve for their actions. Thank goodness Mark Fuhrman wrote his book and exposed the
    good old boy network in Greenwich which has allowed the Skakel family to get away with this
    cover up all these years. I feel for Dorthy Moxley who is an innocent caught in a web which
    she could not possibly have imagined existed before her beautiful daughter was murdered.

  137. I read Mark Furhmans book about the case 2 or 3 years ago and it all was obvious what had happened. Sometimes it just takes patience, if Michael had been charged and
    aquitted he would not have been able to be tried again,
    and there is no statute of limitations on murder.

  138. Are people following the Matthew Margolies case? I think not. If my kids was murdered 25 years ago it would never command the attention
    that this case is getting. Injustice comes in many different ways. My feelings on this is just the mere fact that Mr. Skakel was arrested
    is good enough for me. The fact that this is a high profile case makes me puke. The Skakel family does not have nearly the amount of money
    people think they have and as far as influence, They have less.

    Let's all just look at the fact that our system is failing us and that this kid will walk free. May not be fair may even damage our legal system
    further but as they say , thats Life and if you don't like it too damn bad.

  142. Kudo's to Mark Fuhrman. I believe his efforts have Michael Skakel where he FINALLY belongs, in a corner with nowhere to run. He blew the whistle on Michael Kennedy's affair with the babysitter, I don't think they will be so quick to bail him out this time. But, come on...a juvenile? He has been walking around a free man for 25 years, and the poor Moxley family didn't even get to see Martha turn 16. If he gets out of this, all faith is our justice system is lost. I just hope Martha's family can find some closure with a conviction.

They may as well put up billboards stating: The State of CT. endorses murder as long as you have money and influence. Hunting licenses available at the Greenwich Police dept. GIVE ME A BREAK PEOPLE...HELLO IN THERE. I am guessing this kid will get off because of the statue of limitations although his name will be mud and this will be almost worse than going to jail although OJ seems to be dealing with it fine. Birds of a feather stick together.

  152. I find that it is most unusual that this guy is playing golf
    still in Hobe Sound. How could a guy that did what he is being accused of can pick up a golf club and hit a ball. Don't you think that he would have nightmares everytime he even saw a damn golf course.

    Mrs. Moxley you are not alone anymore and my thoughts are with you. This guy must have a cast iron stomach to be able to hold that kind of guilt in for 25 years. Typical behavior for a Skakel.

    Lets all hope that our friends at the state dept come through and find the killer or killers whether it be the Skakel boys or whomever.

  153. I would like to offer my best wishes and condolences to Dorothy Moxley. She has gone through a nightmare that no one should have to endure. I'm delighted to hear that finally that murderer Michael Skakel has been arrested and I hope that the Skakel and Kennedy families will not interfere any more with the wheels of justice. I would really like for Domick Dunne to write many articles and perhaps another book on this case, because I believe it is due so much to his efforts that this important case has been kept in the public eye. Without Mr. Dunne's and Mr. Furhman's efforts as well as Tim Dumas' wonderful book Greentown, the Skakels would literally get away with murder. It's about time that their self absorbed family was exposed for the horrible people they are.

  158. Justice is being found at last. Skakel father knew the pathology of his son. He hid him at Elan School in maine and Joe
    Ricci made him probably worse. He hid behind his mask of sanity all these years. Elan and Joe Ricci created the
    atmosphere for future Skakels. We need family's like the Moxley's to bring the nations attention to injustices like these
    and schools like Elan. We also need authors like Furhman , Dunne, Dumas and Curley to expose the pyschopathic
    personalites of our times. As Curley states in the book: beware of ducks in raincoats. You really should read this book. Contact yelruc@islands.vi. They will send you a copy. Some proceeds I've been told will eventually go to Martha's foundation.

  164. After all this time, maybe Martha and her family will get some long over-due justice. If they try Skakel as a juvenile will just be another slap in the face. Anyone who knew about the murder and covered it up should have to face consequences for it. Kudos to Martha's Mother for never giving up!

    Texas US - Wednesday, February 02, 2000 @ 14:28:50 EST
  165. It is abundantly clear to anyone who has read anything about this case that the Skakels were involved in this murder and cover up from the very start. I believe Michael Skakel is the murderer and he should stand trial for his crime. That said, I also think it is just ludicrous that he could be tried as a juvenile. When will Martha Moxley get her justice? The Skakels have utilized any and all means to push this case under the rug and therefore should all be charged with hindering prosecution and accessory to murder for their involvement in this hideous deception. The residents of Belle Haven have kept silent about the Skakel family and their so-called "boyish pranks" for way too long.Now is the time for them to stand up and get involved. I wonder how fast this case would have been solved if instead it had been a Skakel child murdered so brutally in 1975 and all of the evidence gathered had pointed to a disturbed young next door neighbor. What kind of swift justice could their influence and prestige have purchased? It's time for the Skakels to end this cover-up and come clean about what occurred on that fateful night. How convenient for Rushton Skakel, Sr., that he now cannot recall the events of that time when his next door neighbors' precious 15 year old daughter was brutally beaten and murdered with a golf club practically in his own front yard, and he frantically engaged attorneys, destroyed evidence, and most importantly, sought help and counsel from his sister, Ethel Kennedy!?I am most certain that Tommy and Michael Skakel will never forget that time. The Skakel family should all be held accountable for this heinous miscarriage of justice. More importantly, I don't see how any one of them can go to church and take communion with this murder on their conscience. Forgiveness from God comes with a price tag and that means asking for forgiveness with a pure heart and admitting your actions to the ones you have hurt. Otherwise,there is no absolution. That goes for the entire family.They should come forward and take what's coming to them. And in Connecticut, they might just get away with it anyway.Right now, they have attorneys filing motions and bending the constitution to protect their interests. And how about prosecuting for perjury? Hello? There are so many crimes they could all be charged with -- let's get the ball rolling. Their Kennedy connection does not any longer allow them any protection and it NEVER should have. Ethel Kennedy should be ashamed for putting the Kennedy political machine to work to cloak a murderer. I wonder how she sleeps at night...maybe this is just business as usual for that particular family. If I were the Moxley family, I would have filed a civil suit, frozen all Skakel assets (which would take some kind of legal wrangling, you can be sure--going back to the original fortune of Rushton Skakel, Sr. in 1975), and let the chips fall.That would be real justice, I can tell you. It worked for the Goldmans. I wonder if the remaining Skakel kids would be willing to let the entire Skakel fortune be lost ,only to save Michael, who they all know is guilty as hell. I pray that Martha and her family get their trial and their justice and closure.
