  3. There's nothing worse than when rich,arrogant and ignorant people like the Skakels get away with murder. Hopefully justice will prevail and Mrs Moxley can have some kind of closure!

  4. If Michael Skakel is guilty, I hope that he gets what he deserves. In my mind, that would equate to at least 25 years in the pen.

  6. If any of you out there have children...
    It is absolutely horrifying to think and I mean really think
    what was done to her. The pain and suffering she went through

    God bless that child.
    But... may God have his OWN vengence on the Skakel's family.

    I believe that if anyone CAN commit a murder.. they should
    be prosecuted as an Adult. I don't care how old you are.
    Michael has taken away something very precious to the Moxley's
    and for something to go on for this long.... it's not fair nor
    right, to Martha, nor her suffering family.

    To the Moxley's:

    You may now rest in peace. When it's your time to go.. you
    will see your lovely daughter. God bless you today and always.

    With Love,

  8. everyone is always concerned when "bad times" fall on the
    kennedy's perhaps it is only "paybacks"over the years for
    the deceit,lies,scandals brought on by themselves.maybe this
    time it will sink in.I really hope that they use him as an
    example,and truly ruin his life.

  9. Political power, social status and enough money to be part of that establishment, is what's kept the guilty person from being prosecuted. It's very sad, indeed, when a young person is brutally murdered, and the "powers that be" let the crime remain unsolved for personal and/or financial gain as is the case all over this country. Status rules! I shudder to think of what deals will be made to enable the perpetrator to walk away unscathed. A.G's in this country no longer look for the truth. Today, it's "what's in it for me?" Hence, an innocent is usually haunted (because of public outcry to solve the crime) and the guilty buys his way to freedom.....or, as in the Moxley case, his father does it for him.

  16. I like you page. I am a devote reader of both Time and Newsweek magazines, and I think both have done a pretty good job about telling the facts as far as what's known. I feel for this girl, I'm only 17, but I remember watching some sort of TV show about her, I don't remember which one, but ever since then, she's been in the back of my head. I can only imagine what her mother must feel. It shows real love when you're willing to stick with something that everyone else has turned their back on. I would only hope if something like that were to happen to me, people wouldn't dismiss me like they did Martha. She was beautiful, I'm sure in personality also. The person who destroyed her, whether it be Micheal or not, deserves to get prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law..no matter who they are. There's no reason he should be treated any differently than anyone else. Her mother deserves some closure, and I hope she finally gets it.
    Thank You for this informative page.

  17. sorry, just a little follow up to my last note. there was once a man who said "we must all hang together, or we shall all assuredly hang separately." my suggestion would be to stop letting them hang together, and start hangin' 'em separately. there are probably four or more people who know the truth; at least Mom and Dad and the 2 sons. These skakels are lying scumbags for not owning up to their sons' acts. lock up all four of 'em, let 'em sweat it out for a coupla years, tape everything they say to each other, they'll crack eventually. they'll turn on each other like bloods and crips.
    They're common criminals, nothing different from the mafia.
    these people are covering up a murder and i would bet them their house that they've PAID people to help them cover it up over the years.

  20. 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.

  21. It truly saddens me that a majority of Americans realize the importance of protecting a crime scene than the "alleged" inept Greenwich Police Department. I sincerely hope that closure will come for Mrs. Moxley and John with the arrest and possible conviction in Martha's murder. I also hope that the outcome of the Skakal arrest brings peace to Martha and her father. I will continue to follow this story with interest since I find it so hard to believe that there has been so many facts buried and ignored, part of me hopes they disprove it but I fear it is true. My thoughts to the Moxley family-you will be in my prayers and I hope that the truth will finally come to light so it can set you free.

  24. I am a lawyer in Hiawassee, Georgia. I first became aware of Martha's case through the A&E City Confidential program you reference. Since then, I believe that Investigative Reports (also A&E) has had a report also. Discovery Channel has also had coverage. I am following the case with interest, as I always believe that justice will prevail. I pray for the Moxleys every day and wish them peace and serenity.

    One comment: what you are calling the "Indictment Papers" are really just the report from the Grand Jury (Juror in this case). Just for information. Thank you, Mary M.

  26. although the books certainly point to michael skakel's guilt, i think everyone in that family has some knowledge of what happened.....the fact that they had political ties outweighed the fact that the murder weapon came from the skakel home...whatever verdict comes down, without a full confession, there will always be questions....maybe now that the kennedy's are disenchanted with the skakel's, justice will be served, if belatedly.

BY THE MERE FACT THE SKAKEL BROTHERS ARE NO LONGER IN GOOD GRACES WITH THE KENNEDY FAMILY, IT WOULD APPEAR SINCE ONE RELATIVE REPORTED ANOTHER RELATIVE TO THE POLICE WOULD HAVE BEEN EASIER IF HE HAD JUST LEFT HIS FINGERPRINTS AND AN AUTOGRAPHED PICTURE OF HIMSELF WITH A SIGNED CONFESSION TO THE MURDER AS WELL.

  28. Has everybody forgotten that there has been no trial here? Reading down through these emails, it's clear that most of you have made up your minds that Michael Skakel committed the murder. Why? Because that's what the media says, that's what Fuhrman says [pillar of credibility that HE is]. I'd liek to see it solved as much as anyone, but let's not totally lose all hold on reality. If this was your son, you wouldn't want him convicted in the press and in the chat rooms before he had his chance before a jury.

  32. I was also 15 in 1975, and was having a great time being a teen. I have read Mark Fuhrman's book and can't imagine the fear Martha felt in those last moments. What I can't imagine more is how someone can live with himself all these years knowing that he ended a life in such a horrible way. I pray that justice will finally happen for the Moxley family. Maybe it will send a message to others: money can't always buy you out of trouble.

  35. I don't know what to say. I will never forget that Halloween night my mom told me about Martha. Such a wonderful young girl. I remember visiting them at Lake Tahoe, my brother and I were in such awe of John and Martha. We they moved we talked of learning how to ski like John, and of little boys crush on Martha. I know my Dad missed working with Mr. Moxley at Touche, they were such a nice family. My heart goes out to you Mrs. Moxley and John. You all left a special place in our hearts. I pray justice prevails. Sincerely Gregory R. Nishkian

  38. hello im 14 years old and i just finished reading Mark Fuhrman's story of Martha Moxley. I think that the case is too old now and people should give up on it. Whoever commited that horrible crime will live under regret and shame, for Martha she is in heaven with her father where nothing can go wrong. Hopefully God punishes the murdered and sends him/her to hell where he can face the same pain Martha felt that holoween eve night. I hope Dorthy is not still thinking of her little girl because pain does nothing but make you worse. I think whoever commits a crime so unhuman, cruel and devilish will someday face the pain they caused. If Martha were alive now she would be raising a family and finished with school. thanks to whoever cut her life short she is unable to do what people around me are doing now. People dont have any right living and breathing when they took someone elses innocent young life.
    may martha rest in peace

  39. I remember when this murder happened, and, of course,
    the Kennedy name being linked to the prime suspect. I had forgotten
    about it until the media exposed this all over again and Michael was
    brought back to Connecticut. After reading the coverage of this on
    the website, CrimeLibrary.com, I became aware of so much more. Mrs.
    Moxley must be so frustrated by all of this. It's hard to believe
    that a killer was not found soon after this happened. Let's hope we
    get to the bottom of this soon. Good Luck to Mrs. Moxley and son
    John.

  41. I was waiting to see if Michael Skakel's RFK cousins would rally to his defense. As usual, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. made a public statement in Newsweek that his cousin Michael was "an innocent man." The coverup of the murder of this beautiful young woman is so deep and extensive, the idea that certain people are above the law is an outrage to Americans of every ethnicity and socioeconomic background. I thought after spate of scandals plaguing the third Kennedy generation that they'd climb out of their denial. Instead of spouting off that Michael Skakel is innocent, RFK Jr. would be better served encouraging his cousin to be a man and confess. I really hope Martha gets some form of justice, but unless others come forward and tell the truth, justice will be bought again, not served. Hey, RFK, Jr., wake up and smell the stink created by your own blood.

  42. I first learned of the Martha Moxley Case while reading crime stories at www.crimelibrary.com. The senseless, seemingly unexpainable murder of Martha brought me to tears. But those tears were nothing in comparision to the intense rage that I felt towards the Skakel family and whoever else had information as to what happened to this young girl, but chose to play political kiss-ass and allow her murderer to go free for almost 25yrs. It seems that once again, Money talks (or doesn't talk, in Martha's case!) and Murderers walk! I pray that Martha's friends and family finally find out what happened to her the night her life was so cruelly stolen from her. I do not know who killed Martha Moxley, but there are some powerful, scandalous heathens that do! If they haven't spoken out in 25yrs., I doubt very seriously that they will now. However, you can not escape hair samples, blood-stained clothing, and forensic evidence. You also can not hide the truth from God. I hope that the Moxley's find peace in the truth. Martha Moxley is a name that I will always remember. God bless her...

  43. I've been watching this highly informational site for over a year, when I first learned it existed. I was so stunned about the Kennedy connection and all of the apparent unjustices to Martha's family. I am glad to see the case is still open and active, and that there is a site that covers it all. Let's get this mess finished before the 25 year anniversary hits in the fall - that would be justice to Martha and her family. But such a shame that it has taken so long.

  44. I have had an interest in this case for some time now, and just recently found out that I was born the exact day that Martha was buried...close to the exact time, near as I can figure. I also just read Mark Fuhrman's book and am left feeling outraged at people I have never even met. The Greenwich police should have trouble sleeping at night...and the Skakels?--They should be afraid...now all of the skeletons will come out, dressed in the dirty laundry that they've been harboring for years! Justice WILL be done. God bless you, Moxleys.

  47. I was made aware of the Martha Moxley case when I saw Michael Skakel on TV being indicted for her murder. I immediately became interested in the case and read both Fuhrman's and Dumas' account of "what happened". I am becoming enraged again at the injustices law abiding citizens have to endure when money and power become involved. Living in the LA area, I was very close to the OJ case(as everyone in the country was) and was dumbfounded when he was found "not guilty". Up to that point, I had total confidence in our justice system. Now I see it had happened a quarter century ago to the Moxley family. My heart and prayers go out to Mrs. Moxley. Let's all pray that justice prevails over money just one time.

  48. I first heard of this case in the mid-nineteen eighties while studying at the Univ. of Kansas. I have since followed it with great interest and hope that another person of privilege would not get away with such a crime because of their last name. I lost a 16 yr old twin sister just a year after Martha's death in an auto accident. That was the singular most horrific loss in my life. I cannot imagine having a child torn so violently and needlessly from my arms. God bless you in your search for closure and healing.

I hope justice can finally be done. As I read past entries in this guestbook I see many people that knew Martha. Does anyone have any stories of her they could share? I would like to know about the person Martha was and the life she lived, not just the tragic way she died. Anyway I think it helps to share good memories, its healthy.

Martha will remain in our hearts forever...

  54. Ever since Martha died there were always the whispers that the Skakels were involved. Note that Michael bragged about "killing squirrels and cats with his golf club". Being jealous in a relationship is no excuse to kill anyone. Martha was denied a happy and fulfilling life. We all mourn for her and feel the anguish and pain of her loving family. I will always remember the day Martha left us....but she will always fill a place in my heart.

  56. It is asked below if there is any evidence. You can expect lots of testomonial evidence. E.g. the Elan Classmates and Littleon. Presumably (a la Monica) Littleton had to make a proffer, showing he had good, useful info, in order to get the immunity deal. Though he is a bit nutty, this is still blockbuster potential.
    Also, just reread Dumas' book. In the course of presenting (probably accurately) Henry Lee as a partial kook/grandstander, he mentions that Lee recoverd Martha-type blond hair from Michael's pants from that night, which WERE RECOVERED FROM THE GARBAGE? Why the garbage? I've never heard of a 15 year old boy who ever throws out his blue jeans?!? Why has so little been made of this point? (BTW, does the government still have the pants? It's hard to imagine modern instruments wouldn't be able to find blood on the killer's pants.)

  60. I am very touched by this story, I pray for justice. For Mark Fuhrman I have only total respect for such a stand up guy. He is one brave soul for after the beating he took in the O.J. trail, to not hide away but to fight for justice and not be afraid to speak out against the very people who are to fight for our rights and the wealthy. He made mistakes and lives up to them. Keep fighting Mr.Fuhrman and hold your head up mighty high. My wishes for the Moxley family to have justice SOON.

  61. I have read the 3 books on this crime also. I think Michael Skakel is guilty. My 2 questions are: What did his brother, Tommy, know all about it and cover it up?, and is there any new physical (or other) evidence that has finally brought Skakel to this point? Obviously, we have another psychopath/sociopath (like OJ Simpson) on our hands. I hope that justice is served this time for the Moxley family.

  62. I see no reason to have a trial for Michael as he has been convicted already on this site.

    I am sure Mrs. Moxley would not want the jury pool tainted that has to sit in judgement of Michael.

    Would it be askng to much to share Mrs. Moxley and her son's grief and let the court decide if he is guilty or not? If he is found guilty, then he will receive whatever punishment is found suitable.

  63. In October 1975, the same month Martha was murdered, I became prosecuter in the Circuit Court in Norwalk. Martha was half my age then. I have followed the case since then. Not a day goes by that I don't count my blessings and knock on wood for the good fortune I and my family have had. I hope that justice may finally be done, and her family find peace and closure.

  64. It was interesting to read in the Greenwich Time online newspaper that Skakel defense lawyer Mickey Sherman might try to get an affluent Fairfield County jury. Prosecutors take note! Sherman will attempt to duplicate the techniques that were implemented by OJ's dream team.

  66. Hello,
    My name is Tom and I'm from Rockaway, New Jersey. I am so glad that Michael Skakel has finally been arrested. He should have been arrested in 1975. Now the Moxley family can have some peace. I am a big fan of Dominick Dunne and Mark Furhman. If it wasn't for Mark Furhman's book, I don't believe any of this would be happening. I continue to pray for the Moxley family.
    All the best,
    Thomas Worsley

  68. I've read all the books, and followed this case. Perhaps it is now time for closure, and prosecution of Mr. Skakel.
    I cannot imagine the agony you have endured, but hope these latest developements can help you better resolve these open issues. The overconfident attorney for Mr. Skakel is so typical...May he be soon be brought to earth. Mr. Dunne's "novel" dealt with evasion by the wealthy. A best-selling work could not explore the grief experienced by the Moxley family, but I sincerely hope recent events allow some resolution to the tragedy, and a stiff penalty for Mr. Skakel.

  69. From what I have read and heard, the entire Moxley investigation is horrendous!!! Shame on the GPD - what a joke! This is corruption as it's worst. This case needs closure for everyone, especially the Moxley family. I just read Fuhrman's book and was so thoroughly shocked and disgusted - the detectives were beyond sloppy and who cares about the Skakel-Kennedy relation anyway???? That should not have stood in the way nor should have money...... The guilty people know who they are (the murderer and anyone who stood in the way of a fair trial - GPD included) What comes around goes around - remember that!

  72. The way in which the investigation into the murder of this beautiful precious girl was handled is a crime itself. May the murderer and those who assisted in the cover-up know that there is one more person who feels sickened by their acts. I want to express my sorrow to Mrs. Moxley and her son. I believe that good will conquer evil and the truth will be known.

  73. For some strange reason this case has really struck my heart with its elements of both tragedy and evil. Martha was such a beautiful young lady with so much promise, and her innocent life was wasted so senselessly. My heart breaks for her family and friends, even now 25 years later. What a shame! If Michael Skakel did commit this crime, (which the evidence seems to point to) then he is an evil, demented person who should be punished! It doesn't matter who his family is or how he was raised, if he is guilty, then he is sick and must pay for what he has done. He has had 25 years of freedom and good times--everything that he denied Martha and her family! Thank you, Mark Furhman, for re-igniting interest in this case. Whatever else you may have done wrong, you did right here. I pray that justice will be done for Martha and everyone who loved her.

  77. Everytime a Kennedy seems to help another family member in trouble for a crime they are accused
    of somebody dies. Isn't it ironic that this is the case. Maybe if they quit the BS and fessed up to
    the fact that they are not perfect and they are also like others who commit crimes and admit to the crimes
    all the bad would eventually dissapear.

    I know from a friend whos son went to Elan in the late 70's that if you had any guilt especially murder that
    there was no way in HELL you were going to keep it inside you. I know nothing other than his stories about
    being at Elan and all I can say is God Bless Dorthy Moxley and Pray for the Kennedy's and Skakels.

    I have always been right with my predictions and I am predicting that justice will be served because if they
    let this man go it will just reinforce my worst fears that money can buy anything.

  81. I have followed this case for quite a few years now. Mainly, it kept my interest as Martha's family were once from the beautiful Uper Peninsuula of Michigan. I know a few "Jolgren's" in my own area here and have often wondered if they are related to this family as they, too, are wonderful people. My heart goes out to the Moxley family as this is now going to be a fresh wound and will have to be relived anew. Please know there are many people out here that pray for your family and all the many families like yours that have suffered so needlessly all these years. May your daughter be given the peace she deserves and your family be given closure once and for all in this senseless tragedy.

  83. I have recently read the works of Mark Fuhrman and I am proud of the courage he has to continue on the right path of justice, despite the pathetic people who constantly discount and discourage his work. I hope that Michael Skakel gets what he deserves, tenfold. How dare he live a life, knowing full well that he ended one. He is a disgrace to his family and yet another humiliation to his Kennedy roots. My prayers are with John and Dorothy in the hopes that justice will soon be served, and that money won't prevent it either!

  84. I've noticed that quite a few people are repeatedly singing the praises of 1 Mark Fuhrman. While it's true that Fuhrman may have assisted to push this investigation along, let's not make this guy out to be Mother Theresa. Fuhrman once claimed that "the only good nigger is a dead nigger". This is no great American we're talking about. The Skakels suck but so does Mark Fuhrman.

  91. I don't remember how I first heard of the horrible murder of your daughter/sister...years ago. When Mark Fuhrman's book came out regarding this, I read it in one sitting. Also read his book regarding O.J. I have great admiration for Mark Fuhrman and hope he will continue his great work. Also hope he understands how many well wishers and supporters he has. As for the Moxley's, my heart goes out to the family. I hope at last there can be some closure and justice will be served. I think the American people are seeing the terrible injustice that occurs when people with money/power can manipulate the justice system.
