Description

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."
