1 April 2003 - 31 Dec 2003


  1. This case has consumed me from the time I was a small child. I have always hoped and prayed for peace and justice for the Moxley family. I have read the books and seen the D.D. movie and been utterly fascinated by both. I would truly love to meet Mrs. Dorthy Moxley in person simply because she is an extraoridinary human being and she is someone that I most genuinely admire, whole-heartedly. My thoughts an prayers are with the with you and have been from the beginning.

  2. I'm only 18 years old and i wasnt alive when she died. I read up on this story and it broke my heart. She was so young and so innocent, i dont know how anyone can do this to someone. I am extremly glad to see Mike go to jail! My heart definitly goes out to Marthas family and my Martha now rest in peace where she should be.

  3. It has been 28 years since Martha was taken from her family and friends. I hope they have been able to find some peace knowing that Martha's killer is finally behind bars. I did not know Martha, but after reading about her and seeing the movie that was made about her murder I can say that she was somebody I would have loved to have known. To Dorthy and John, my prayers are with you.

  4. I was so glad that Mark Fhurman was asked to investigate this horrendous murder. He had the right guy in the Simpson case and he's got the right guy in Martha's case. A very clever detective. I pray for the family's sake that this beast, Skakel will never see the light of day and the appeal fails; so the Moxley's can have their peace at last.

  5. I graduated from Greenwich High School in 1977 and will always remember what happened to Martha. I remember when we all found out in school what happened and how shocked we all were. Over the years I have often thought about this case and was so glad that an arrest was made so there could be some closure for the family. It was a terrible thing that happened and my heart goes out to the Moxley family.

  6. Dear Mrs. Moxley,

    I was so frustrated to hear of Skakel's recent appeal. I do hope that he is unsuccessful and that justice continues to be served. My thoughts are with you and your son.

  7. I am so sorry. This is devastating. I am so glad that Mike Skakel was sentenced to life, he's a sick man. This is a great sight. Thank you for sharing it.

  8. I am just wondering, Greenwich is a small town,that isnt overwhelmed with murders, yet there are 3 high profile murders that are have been unsolved for 20 years+. Although the Moxley murder was solved, it took the investigation of an outside party to solve. Whats wrong with the Greenwich Police Department. I think they honestly need some training in solving cases, or just a plain old overhaul of their whole department. I have read and read about these cases, and have seen a ton of things that the police department ruled as "irrelevant" or "unimportant" stuff that would really make an impact on the solving of the cases. Cant they imagine what these families are going through. If I were a part of these families, I would have taken the whole investigation into my own hands, perhaps then my loved ones murderer would then be in jail. I thought in a murder investigation every little clue had relevance, you are just causing these families more grief, like their family member didnt matter. Take feelings into consideration, and look into every lead you are given, or every clue you find. You may find that you could just solve a murder or two. My condolances to everyone who lost someone. I pray for you everyday that something breaks in your case, and the monsters that have caused so much grief are brought to justice.

  10. I would just like to say, that was one of the most horrible things that happened that night.What he did, was cold, mean, and filled with hatetred. I am glad he is being punished, but he desreves more, he deserves death, one for one.

  11. It was a tragedy what happened to Martha. If other(s) were involved, I hope they pay dearly for not speaking up - whether it be Ken, the Gardner (his family), Tom, or the two men recently indicated. If Skakel is guilty, let him serve his time - if not, I hope he is released. I hope that the truth comes out. I hope evildoer(s) are punished adequately, and the innocent are set free. I can understand the pain of Dorothy Moxley of losing such a wonderful girl .. and certainly Michael is enduring a tough time in prison. I just hope someone finally admits to the crime!

  13. This is a tradgety of life and police procedures. I recently read Murder in Grenwich and it was great Mark Furman did a great job. I reminds me of my own best friends case of murder. She was killed in 1992 and there has been no real attempt to solve this case. My condolences to Dorthy and John Moxly. Thank you so much for the hope that my friends case will be solved.

I live not far from you and still remember that day so vividly. This old world certainly would have been a much brighter place if only you were not taken away much too soon. Much love always,

  21. I visited Greenwich a number of times in the
    1980s and 90s. A family friend was a teacher in
    the Greenwich public schools (Eastern Junior
    High) and a resident of Greenwich (in the
    Riverside township) for 35 years. He also got to
    know Det. Steve Carroll socially, through the
    limousine service Carroll was operating after
    his retirement from the Greenwich PD. My friend
    would always take me on extensive driving tours
    of the Greenwich area -- through the scenic back
    country, out to Tod's Point, and even through
    Belle Haven, where he has friends. (The famed
    guard shacks were always empty whenever we drove
    through.) During one such visit in the early
    1980s, he told me about a bludgeoning death that
    had taken place in Belle Haven back in 1975. He
    mentioned the name of the victim and that of the
    killer, adding that the killer had been shuffled
    through reform schools to keep him beyond the
    reach of police. The former Greenwich police
    detective confided to my friend that the whole
    thing "was just a big cover-up." So naturally,
    when I saw the killer being paraded before the
    media in the early 2000s prior to his trial, my
    initial thought was, Oh, so they're finally
    prosecuting him after all this time... It's a
    haunting story, particularly if you hold youthful memories of the area (I first visited
    Greenwich in the winter of 1981, a few months
    before my 15th birthday). I recently composed a
    poem inspired by and dedicated to Martha's
    memory, and I would like to send it out to the
    Moxley family to let them know that no matter
    how much time goes by the specialness of Martha
    will always be remembered.

    ON SPECIALNESS

    What words could best describe
    a prevailing state of mind
    through which, in you, I find

    the meaning of specialness
    so beautifully defined?

    For though they may be fine,
    these others of a kind --

    they may be like you,
    but they are not you.

    To see myself reflected
    in the eyes of specialness

    is more inspiring by far
    than is the gaze of just anyone else.

    For though they may be fine,
    these others of a kind --

    they may be like you,
    but they are not you

    nor could they ever
    affect me as you do

    because they are not you.

  25. To the Moxley family: I want to offer all of my sympathies and love to your family and loved ones. I am but 21 years old and was not around at the time that Martha was wrongfully taken from us, but her story hits me somewhere deep inside. I feel a connection with Martha, after viewing pictures and reading hundreds of stories I have realized that your sweet beautiful daughter was very much like myself. Not only that, but she is exactly the same age as my mother, which is also a connection for me. I want all of the Moxley's to know that I am constantly praying for you and for Martha, that she has found peace in heaven, and that Dorthy and John have found some kind of peace in knowing that Martha's killer will finally pay for what he has done.If I had the oppotunity to visit Martha's grave, I would leave a single white rose for her, signifying her beauty, and everlasting youth, for the girl who sounds alot like me. Prayers and love.

  29. Dear Mrs. Moxley:
    As each day takes from us,
    a little more time, a little more trust,
    we look around
    hoping a moment can be found. When we look at ourselves
    and know we give people help,
    let us pick up the pieces that fell.
    So, God, our soul will call.
    For our hearts to light
    then what is in them must be right,
    so, as we make our way,
    through this old world each day,
    we will come to know,
    that heaven is our home.
    Then we will everyday be glad,
    knowing once there, we will no more be sad.

    Best wishes to you and your family, my prayers are with you!

  30. Dear Dorthy,
    Our hearts and prayers are with you! The jerk will recieve his for this crime. Taking a 15 yr girls life away from you and her friends.
    I am 24 and born in 1978, so I wasn't born during the murder case. But from reading the book *MURDER IN GREENWICH* I feel that I know Martha. This evil jerk needs help, he's vile, disgusting for doing this! What was going through his skulls is what I like to know, you know! God Bless you Dorthy. Martha's memory will be forever remembered.

    To take a young girls life is kidnapping but killing so much worse!, My husbands and myself would like to give you our sympathy to you and to her friends. He won't be dening anything soon. When you go in the inside wall, others will find out what he did and he'll pay for what he did to your dear sweet beautiful martha, the girl who never had the chance to strive, the girl who will never graduate from high school, the girl who won't be able to have a family of her own.
    Our love, prayers,& sympathy is with you Mrs. Dorthy Moxley.

    *SOON MARTHA WILL REST IN PEACE AND HAVE JUSTICE, YOU & HER FRIENDS WILL HAVE JUSTICE*

    *GOD BLESS YOU*

  34. Last night, I saw something that gave me this emptiness feeling inside. I saw a little girl, who seemed young, smart, funny, and beautiful, murdered out of a jelous rage. I felt all this emotion build up inside myself, but had no way to release it. I was angry at knowing that the skakel family could get away with murder because of their money and connections. I was disgusted that it took so long to solve this case, with no help from the local PD. I felt sad for this little girl who had her life taken away from her so brutily. But most of all, I was happy to see that smile on Dorothy Moxley's face after Micheal was sentenced. I also admired her strength and dedication to her daughter, and those beautiful words she spoke, "This is truly Martha's Day." Well, it truly is. To all those affected by this tragedy, Be strong and never forget!

  40. Ever since I saw the movie on USA about Martha Moxley, I've been hooked on what happened. It's sad (for lack of a better term) that it took so many years for her murder to be found. It's disheartning that something so cruel could be left open on the table for so long. I'm releaved that this was solved. Martha Moxley will forever be in the hearts of thousands of people who never knew her, would never know her, and would have one day blessed the lives of. I pay my deepest respect to her family and friends. She won't be forgetten. Not now, not ever.

    With the guilty SOB behind bars, I hope closure has been found for all who knew and therefore loved Martha.
    It disgusts me to know that Skakel won't admit to his crime and that others out there may have had information on this case all those years ago~ Take solace in knowing that everyone will have there day in God's court and will ultimately answer for all injustices committed.

  45. I am 17 years of age and I have watched the movie based on Martha Moxley's murder, Murder in Greenwich. I was really touched and very sadened by this movie and what happened to her. She was a very pretty girl and I am sure she would've had a great future ahead of her. Dorthy, I am very sorry for your loss. I cannot even begin to imagine what it was like for you to lose your daughter. I just don't understand how jealousy can over take some one's mind so much that they commit a mindless and selfish act as they did. And another thing that really amazes me is how many people were too scared to accuse who they thought did it, because of money, fame, and relativity to the Kennedy's. In God's eyes, relativity doesn't matter. But to everyone in Greenwich/Belle Haven it did. He went free for many years after he commited this murder and now that he has finally been caught you, Dorthy, can rest a little better. I was very pleased that someone had actually been caught and sentenced, until I read that he only got 20 yrs, because of the fact he was a juvenille when he commited this careless act.
    Thank you for your time. You can contact me any time you would like.

I HAVE BEEN ON THE INTERNET READING ARTICLES FOR THE PAST TWO HOURS JUST WANTING TO KNOW MORE AND MORE ABOUT MARTHA. IT IS A SHAME WHAT HAPPENED TO HER ITS ALMOST UNBEARABLE TO THINK ABOUT. BUT, THERE HAS FINALLY BEEN JUSTICE DONE. I KNOW I WILL ALWAYS THINK ABOUT MARTHA AND HER TRAGIC END. I KNOW SHE IS IN A BETTER PLACE AND HER AND HER LOVED ONES WILL BE REUNITED. I HOPE GOD BLESSES HER FRIENDS AND FAMILY. MAY SHE REST IN PEACE.

  47. I just finished watching the USA movie about Martha Moxley, and I am in tears. I had heard about her before, but I never really thought about it. It truly saddens me to know that Martha lost her life at such a young age, and in such a horrible way. I'm glad someone cared enough to keep this case open, and finally solved the murder. It's such a shame. I will forever keep Martha Moxley and her family in my prayers...and I know that Martha is now in a place where she will never hurt and she is watching over her friends and family.

    May all of you finally have peace.

    I don't pretend to know what kind of pain the both of you have suffered all the years but I hope now that you can take some solace in Michael Skakel's conviction. Having grown up in Old Saybrook CT. and having found myself a buff for unsolved crimes this one needless to say hit pretty close to him. I'm 28 years old now and I was an infant the time of the murder so 1975 events have always caught my interest, but this tragedy even more so. I obviously never knew Martha but I'm sure now she shines in a better place while Skakel lies in darkness behind the cells of prison. I don't know if anyone can really say whether or not Skakel is truly sorry for what he did and will ever feel that interminable pain that you people must live with everyday, but atleast having been put away he'll be forced to acknowledge his unconscionable act of 1975 more closely. For 27 years Skakel and friends have avoided the truth but no more and thank god for that. Mrs Moxley and John I wish you all the best and I hope you rest easy in knowing that Martha's memory, while huge in your hearts, is also somewhat present to people who didn't even know her. Once again, my deepest regards for your family and God Bless!

  59. A couple years ago, when i was 14, my mom got Mark Fuhrman's book from the library. I read it on Halloween, not knowing anything about this case. After reading it I knew that one day Martha's killer would get caught and I would tell anyone who listened about it. Every time I think about her and her death I cry, even though I do not know her. I would just like to say how glad i am that Michael is in jail and now Martha can rest peacefully.

  60. I was relived that justice was FINALLY done to Martha's killer. These new allegations about someone else killing her, to me anyway, is bogus. They have the right killer behind bars and should leave well enough alone. Let Martha rest in peace.

  64. There supposedly is new evidence about Michael not being guilty. The news says that people broke in and stole golf club"s" of the Skakal's. If only one club was missing from the set, then only one person was involved in the murder and this new "evidence in questioning" is untrue and the fact that only one club was missing from the set is being overlooked!!

My heart goes out to the Moxley family..Martha was so full of life and seemed to be blossoming in to a beautiful girl ..sadly the only thing she didn't have was much time on this earth..Not all personally knew her but are touched by her life and the person she was going to become. I'm sure she is smiling down and lighting up the stars just alittle more

  79. MOX

    Twenty-some odd years ago,
    a tragic tale would soon unfold.
    The plot will change along the way...
    and haunt us to this very day.

    back in nineteen seventy five,
    a sophomore at belle haven high,*
    is walkin' back home late one night,
    singin' this will be the day that i die.

    with brothers bidding for her love,
    she was caught up in the middle of,
    savages in tennis shoes,
    smokin' dope and drinkin' booze.

    chorus:

    on the night of her demise,
    choices made were ill-advised.
    she placed her fate into the hand,
    of someone thought of as a friend.

    bridge: it seems everyone who met her,
    say they never will forget het.
    and although i never knew her...
    i live as though i owe it to her.

    chorus:

    twenty-some odd years go by,
    yet justice would not be denied.
    no longer waiting by the phone...
    a mother saw her daughter home.

    ps: "no friend who loves will ever die"**
    though death will come to all in time.
    our time is short, live free and fast..
    today could be your very last!

    * i didn't want to use the name of the actual school. (greenwich high)

    ** first line is a quote taken from poet Edgar Guest. (page 5 of "MURDER IN GREENWICH" by Mark Fuhrman.

  82. My boyfriend (20) and I (17) rented the movie (Murder in Greenwich) a few hours ago and just finished watching it. When I saw the movie on the shelf at the video store, I just had to rent it because it had captured my interest somehow. It's a such a sad story. Martha was such a pretty, fun, out going girl and she didn't deserve any of this. But it happend and I'm so glad that justice was served even if it took a long time. I'm also glad that her story was shared with everyone, so then we would all know about this and think about her. Well Martha, always know that everyone loves you and misses you and I know the world would've been a better place if you were in it =)

  92. I just watched a documentary on the story of Martha Moxley. I have one child, a thirteen year old daughter who is the light of my life. I'm not sure I could function if anything were to happen to her. Also, a friend/coworker just lost her 32 year old daughter when she drowned in Destin trying to save a young boy's life. As my friend whispered to me at the wake, it is a mother's worst nightmare. Parents are not supposed to outlive their children. I teach nursing school and am also in the military part-time. I know a young lady in my wing who is a single parent with two children and struggling financially to make it through nursing school. I will be contacting you for scholarship information. My thoughts and prayers are with Martha's friends and family.

Michael Skakel should be in jail, and I am glad he is, he murdered Martha. I feel like I know Martha as one of my true friends. I want to visit her grave at one point in my life. I want to visit her house, read everything there is about this case, and see anything related to this. This may sound corny but I miss Martha although I don't even know her!

  94. I don't really have that much to say, for I am really only 14 years old, but I would like to say that I am very sorry to all of the loved ones of Martha. I fell very deeply for all of you. You may be thinking that I probablly don't know very much about this, and you are probablly right, but I do understand a great part of it. I just finished watching "Murder in Greenwich", and I was completly shocked about everything that happened. Martha was a beautiful girl. And there are some parts of her life that remind me a lot of mine now. I am just about the age that she was when she was killed. I have never felt so strongly about something like this. I had to come on the internet and look up any information that I could find, because it interested me so much. I just couldn't believe that someone could do something like that to someone so incredible. I mean I know that I didn't know her personally, but after reading part of her diary, and watching that movie I really feel like I know her, because her and I seem so much alike. I could probablly write forever, but I will stop here. I just want all of the people that were close to Martha that they are in my prayers and always will be.

  95. Martha is a girl whom I can very much relate to as I grew up in Sacramento, CA in the mid 70's as a teen and the girls I knew of those times were similar. I could only imagine how badly it would have affected me if something so terrible would have happened to any of them like Martha. So somehow I can relate and connect to Martha and it brings me to tears to know what happened to her, I am glad Justice has prevailed in this case. I pray for Martha's family and friends for peace.

  104. I followed the case of Martha's senseless murder after watching a special about it several years ago.

    It is difficult to comprehend the enormity of the crime commited against Martha and her family. However, the Skakles had money and power, which they used to the extent that they could and prevented the Moxley family from enjoying justice and peace of mind. Something that they so clearly deserve. I am glad to see that the noose finally tightened around the neck of Martha's killer. How dare he be allowed to live a life of happiness and normalcy after what he did.

    I am happy that Martha and her family can rest with the knowledge that justice has prevailed and trumped the "money card" that the Skakle family has been playing since day one.

    For their participation, the members of the Skakle family will all have their day in court. At least in God's court. For you will all have to answer for your parts in this horrible injustice.

    My heartfelt congratulations go out to Mrs. Moxley, John Moxley and the memory of Martha. I am sorry that your triumph over evil took 27 years and that Martha's promising life was ended so senselessly and abruptly.

    CONGRATUALTIONS! I wish you (the Moxley's) all the happiness you can enjoy.

    All my best,

    i am so sorry for your loss of a beautiful young girl. a life taken from a person who had no right. although justice has been served i cant help to feel that it has not. the man that killed her got to go on living a much longer life than martha. and to top it off, people knew about it and i feel they too should be punished. i cant imagine the grief that you have encountered with such a long on going investigation and not knowing the truth. i am very grateful for you to have finally found closure. although none of use knew martha personally, i feel she now and will always be a part of our hearts and will all be one day reunited with martha. god bless you..

  108. HI

    I watched the movie "Murder in Greenwich" it's good movie. it was very sad about Martha Moxley who murdered was in 1975 but why does Michael freedom for 27 years ??? it's not fair. What's matter with cops and detectives ? Finally, Michael went to jail for 20 years to his life. REST OF HIS LIFE ! I never ever know Martha Moxey when I came into this world when she was 12 years old and she was murdered when I was 3 years old. I can't imagine that Martha supposed be 43 years old now. Dorothy must be missed to see grandchildren if Martha married and have children. I would like go to Greenwich and visit Martha's grave someday. Rest of peace.

  111. Mrs. Moxley and family. I was delighted to read of the guilty verdict and sentencing of Michael Skakel. 20 years to life. He has enjoyed 27 years of freedom he denied to Martha. He has married and had children, experiances he denied Martha. I am sad for you because even though the person responsible for the loss of your child is now in prison, you too have been denied the experiances of Martha's growing into womanhood. I read your letter and the pain was evident in every line. You fought hard and long for your child and now it is time for you to move on. You deserve to enjoy the rest of your life, don't let skakel deprive you of that too. I wish you peace. Regards Kathy W.
