1 April 2001 - 31 June 2001


  1. To the Moxley Family,
    I was born in 1960. I keep thinking your Martha would be my age. When I look around and see my family, I see how much was taken from you all. I am glad you kept this case alive. Not just for justice, but to teach us all how much one life, even as brief as Martha's was, can touch so many others. She has touched mine. I will keep you all in my prayers and give each of my children a hug in her name.

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I hope this trial brings forth all the answers that might help you with this tragedy. Hang in there and don't let the presence of the Kennedy's deter you. They were always a sneaky bunch. God Bless.

  3. We must not allow yet again power and money stop our judicial system from convicting Martha's killer. Mark Furham opened the door so that John and Dorothy can finally have closure for Martha's brutal murder. We all have to hope and pray that all those holding back information will come forward before the trial.

  6. Hey just wanted to say that im re-reading Mark Fuhrmans book about the case after just reading his Newest book Murder In Spokane, I read the book when it came out and the Tim Dumis book as well! Mark is a great detective and maybe he should take on The Jon Bennet Ramsey Case next!!!The police still need a detective like Mark if only to uncover or FIX their screwed up cases. Hope they nail Skakel too.

  7. After seeing the show regarding this case on TV earlier today, I was intrigued and had to search the net for more details.

    After going to the crime libraries site, then this one I find it unbelievable that something like this could happen to someone like Martha.

    I think we've all known someone at some point in our lives that has touched us like she (by all accounts of friends) touched so many. We all knew that beautiful girl in school who had that perfect, genuine smile & personality that MAKES you smile back and feel happy, even if only for that very moment.. whether you were having a bad day or not. People like that have the ability to not only change your day, but your outlook on life.

    The more I read about her, the more she reminds of me a girl that I know right now, and I can't help but think of the horror our town would feel if something were to happen to someone like her.

    From what I've read, it sounds like the night of 10/30/75 has been haunting Michael for his entire life. I hope that he is handed down the justice that ONLY the person who commits such a terrible crime deserves.

    I never met Martha, but he took such a wonderful person from this world. I know some people say that just one person can never make a difference.. I'm one of those people who doesn't believe that. People like Martha make a difference in everyone's life.. and we've all had to live without her.

    My deepest sympathy to the Moxley family & friends.

  8. After watching a rerun of Unsolved Mysteries on Lifetime, I found this site, a dedicated to the truth site about Martha Moxley. The story is very interesting, but I'm confused on certain parts such as why did the Skakels change their story twenty years later and if Michael Skakel had confessed to the crime, why isn't he behind bars? Please answer these questions of mine on your site (I've bookmarked it) so I can learn the fuzzy details. Sorry, if this is humbug, but I can't live without knowing the whole story! Let Michael go to jail......Great site......Martha would be around fourty now, right?

  9. Personally,I think m.s. did it. he knows it and Mickey knows it! but when you can afford a lawyer with the high profile/caliber such as $$$ Mickey $$$ Sherman,it will buy m.s.freedom for a little while longer.But ultimetly I truly belive he will be found guilty as charged.M.s. wont have the "luck" the idiot (butcher in the bronco) had! I knew martha many years ago and I had a crush on her that was well, BIG!
    still is, but to me that meant friendship pure and simple.from a very warm and trulygenuine human being such as martha moxley.

  17. To whomever reads this: I am 31 years old and have followed this since 1976 when I was just 6 1/2 years old. I still remember the day and it haunts me to see that our justice system only works by the pressures of our nations writings (Dominick Dunn, Timothy Dumas, & Mark Furhman, to name some). I have read almost all editorials, books, and magazines on this subject and not once has the subject of "truth Serum" or hypnosis come out. If this man really is innocent, you would think that he would come forward with every oppertunity to declare his innocence. If he says that he is not sure if he was involved or not, he should be trying a little harder to clear his name. And one last note: Why the heck would a bunch of people come out and give almost the same exact testimony about the "Loony Bin Chats" if they weren't true? I doubt that was a bunch of lies on their part! Our nation is not stupid and neither is the justice system. Justice WILL Prevail! Best of luck to everyone involved. I am one of Billions watching every step of the trial!!!!

  19. Dear Dorothy & John,
    I certainly got a laugh at the Skakels trying to point the finger at the groundskeeper. All of these years and they are just coming up with that now? When he has passed away?
    Yes, I laughed because it shows their desperation. I truly belive thatjustice is finally going to be done. Bless both of you for hanging in there and never giving up.

    I am 25 years old born just 4 months after the murder of Martha.I am sorry of your loss and sorry that it has taken as long as I am old to get to the bottom of this crime.Is it just a rumor that power and money can help you hide from justice,or is it just me?I hope that for not only you but for the entire country that we are a strong enough country to detect and find the killer of Martha Moxley and hope that money and power dose not over rule justice in the United States.Just remember that America is behind Martha Moxley.We,as one,will be watching this trial.

  23. Well,well Tommy Skakel is "speaking out" about his "ordeal" and painting himself as a victim of the investigation for the last 25 years - preposterous! Now I have heard it all. What moral world do the Skakels inhabit? Do they honestly think anyone in their right mind would sympathize with a spoiled,violent,waste of space like Tommy Skakel. Someone who lied to authorities not once,not twice but too many times to count in a MURDER investigation. That is a CRIME in itself which should be punished and I hope it is someday.
    Tommy Skakel, you are reaping what you have sown. You are not a victim. You are not entitled to sympathy.
    The only victims in this case are Martha and her family,who have behaved with dignity and class.

  24. To Mrs. Moxley and John:

    When my ex husband worked for Deloit & Touche, I met and spoke with you and Mr. Moxley so many times. He was my favorite at the firm, and you were always so gracious. I knew only that Martha was deceased, at that time 1982-1985, and did not know what had really happened until I read Mark Furhman's book. I want you to know that Martha must have been like you and David - two of the most gracious people I have ever met. I will pray for justice. May both David and Martha be together as they rest in peace.

    Kindest Regards.

  26. I came to this site incidentally and I started reading. Here in Germany we don't know much about the case. What I read made me really upset. Some people go to prison because of circumstantial evidences. And in this case money and influence seem to protect from this. I'm really upset because of this. I hope that the family of Martha will get justice at last.

  28. I read the book on Martha's murder and
    it's really sad to think that someone could go out and commit a horrible crime like this and think they can get away with it.
    Does this person not have a conscience?

    I hope justice will come through at the end of the day and Martha's family can move on without strife and sleep better at night knowing
    that this person has been locked away for the pain that he has caused

    Goodluck with the case!

  30. Hi there,
    My name is Sheree and I was reading about the Martha Moxley case and whilst viewing the evidence in the article, I believe that justice should be made for Martha Moxley's death. It is a very sad and terrible thing for a person to be murdered, especially someone close and it is just not right that that person be let off or freed. I may not be a friend to your once, alive, Martha Moxley, but I do feel that if I had been, nothing could compensate for her death...She seemed to be a nice, caring and very thoughtful person. I believe that what was done to her was sick and very disturbing. For someone to do that to a person is wrong and should die for their crime. If you would like to reply to what I have written, pleasde write to angelgal_y2k@yahoo.com

    Goodluck with the case!!!

  31. I can not believe the anguish that this family has been through. This beautiful girl should not have been murdered. She should be with us today. I know that she would have so much to offer in her professional life. Damn the person who killed her. I do not care if it was a Kennedy. She should be with us. Love out to her mother and brother. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Love,

  33. I just recently found out about Martha and her family. As I lost someone close to me through violent crime young, I find it very hard to express what I feel inside looking at photos of this young and beautiful girl. I have been following the news on this, and I have one hope - I hope that whoever is responsible for this horrible crime comes to justice and is punished fully for their actions. Best wishes to Martha's remaining family and friends, I am truly sorry for your loss.

  35. I firmly believe that the Moxley's will soon receive relief when their daughter's murderer is convicted of the crime. Their faith has sustained them and they have demonstrated class throughout the past 25 years.

    I also believe that the crime would have been solved without the intrusive "3 ring circus" instigated by greedy (social climbing) authors, journalists and thrill seekers.

    May God Bless the Moxley's and their quiet patience, humble demeanor and relentless pursuit of justice.

  38. Thank God for Dectective Mark Fuhrman! He was totally and unfairly victimized in the OJ Simpson trial. Without Dectective Fuhrman and his wisdom and expertise this case would never have progressed to the point of a trial.

    some satisfaction at trials end. My heart goes out to you..I remember when it happened and have read everything since. I will admit that whomever is finally proven guilty will also, to amuch lesser degree, have my sympathies,especially if it is one withthe bad luck to have beeb borna Skakel...they appear to be tourted,lost souls with a very evil father. My prayers and wishes will continue with out fail for you....Virginia

  42. My hopes and prayers have been with the Moxley family since I first started reading Dominick Dunne's recounting of the case in Vanity Fair. In the last few months I've read everything I can find on the case, in hopes that the caring energy the active pursuit of justice will prevail. I am saddened that we lost Martha Moxley, have great empathy for her family, and pray that the truth will finally prevail and the person responsible for this tragic and not forgotten gruesome murder will be held accountable. It just is not right until then...

  44. Due to recent back surgery, i have become a more avid tv watcher than i would really like to be "ANYWAY"...today i saw the movie on lifetime "season of purgatory". it amazed me! the more i watched, the more i realized the similarities between it and Martha's case. I am a mother of 17 and 13 year old boys and can never imagine the pain this put ms. moxley and her late husband through over the years and having to relive it all over again...i can only say my humble prayers will be with you throughout. i am a christian and i fully believe in final judgement. mrs. moxley, whether it makes you feel an inth better, please rest assured, if this "person" does not pay for this in the courts or on this earth, he will in God's time. no amount of "purgatory" will allow this abomination time to make things right.

  45. May God be with you Mrs Moxley. I can't imagine losing my daughter, especially in such a horrific way. You and your family seem like such "down to earth people" considering the wealth you have. Mr. Furhman's book was wonderful and well-written. The comment that I continue to say over in my head is: "She was my best friend." (said by Dorothy about Martha.) May the guilty party be brought to justice and may you be joined with Martha and your husband in heaven.

  46. I first heard of the Martha Moxley case when the book "A Season in Purgatory" was released. It was from there, that I began reading more about the case, and trying to stay on top of the latest news.
    When Mark Fuhrman released his book "Murder in Greenwich", it was as if all the thoughts of those around me, and my own thoughts, had come to life. I realize that Mr. Fuhrman's reputation suffered because of the Simpson trial, but his outlook on the Moxley case is right on the money as far as I am concerned. I keep hearing people talk about the past, and why the Greenwich police didn't investigate more, but it is in the past, and it cannot be undone. I believe that the courts are on the right track, and justice for Martha, and her family is all that matters now. I send out a prayer for all of them.

  47. Mickey Sherman is no Johnny Cochrane and will defeat himself in this case. The guy is all flash and mostly trash. He has made it clear that he thinks Tommy Skakel commited the murder go figure... This leads me to believe that he would throw his mother under a bus to win a case.

    He is a wolf in Armani clothing and a wimp at the same time. This will be his biggest defeat in his career. I think he should back out now before he really looks like a jack ass.

  48. I agree with the reader who states that the only thing sadder than the death of Martha is the evil that is written in this guest book. What happened to "inocent untill proven guilty." I thought that was what our country was based upon. If Michael goes to trial and is convicted than he should go to jail. Maybe some people have forgotten the basic principles of our constitution.

  49. I never heard about Martha untill 2001 when I was browsing in the library for a book to read and came up one the book written by Mark Furhman. I would like to say that my deepest sympathy goes out to her family and hope one day that you will find peace. I can't believe something like this could happen but the way thing are in this world you never know what can happen. I didn't even know Martha but it seems like she was a very nice person I don't see how anyone could have had the heart to murder her. I hope the killer is found and prosecuted. This case has made me have a possible change in my life I did want to become a computer systems analyst but now I believe I want to become a detective because of crimes of this sort.
