The “authentic and definitive” story of Martha Moxley’s murder case, including the conviction of her killer, Michael Skakel—includes photos! (Greenwich Time)
On the night before Halloween, 1975, the wealthy community of Greenwich, Connecticut, was rocked by the murder of fifteen-year-old Martha Moxley, who was discovered in her backyard, bludgeoned and stabbed with a women’s golf club. Yet despite the horror of the crime, the well-to-do neighborhood stymied the investigation, which had drawn nationwide attention due to one suspect’s ties to the Kennedy family.
For twenty-three years, the killing went unsolved and the killer unpunished, until the first edition of this book was published, outlining the chilling murder and the community’s response. When a special grand jury was finally convened, it took two more years for the police to bring the Moxley’s next-door neighbor, Michael Skakel, to trial and convict him of the gruesome homicide.
Determined to share the eventual conclusion to the crime that shattered families and haunted Greenwich for almost a quarter century, the author has updated the book called by Greenwich Time, the “literary authority on the Martha Moxley murder.”
