On the night of October 30, 1975, Martha Moxley was beaten to death with a golf club on the grounds of her family's estate. Blonde, pretty, happy, and wholesome, Martha was just 15 years old when she was killed. Several suspects were focused upon, but the whole investigation was screwed up, and then covered up, from the get-go. The neighborhood where the Moxleys lived was extremely wealthy; their neighbors were in fact the Skakels, who are of relation to the Kennedys. And as we are all too well ...more

Fuhrman, Mark. Murder in Greenwich (1998)***
Exorcizing daemons

Fuhrman gets to exorcize some daemons here while playing judge and jury. He convicts Michael Skakel of the 1975 murder of Martha Moxley, and that's good since there's little doubt the sick little rich boy did it. Fuhrman also takes the Greenwich police to task for bungling the investigation and for being afraid to go after anyone in the rich and politically powerful Skakel family. He calls them "servants of the rich," but of course th

Amazing book! This is the story of the brutal murder of Martha Moxley in 1975 outside her home in Greenwich Conneticut when she was only 15. She was blungeoned to death with a golf club in an affluent gated community and found under a pine tree in her own yead. This is a fascinating analogy of who the murderer was. Fuhrman is no doubt right on target with this book.

I found this book more interesting than I thought it would be. I had heard about this murder via TV at one point. The author is Mark Fuhrman, who was the detective in the O.J. Simpson case, retired from the LAPD and now lives in Idaho. In this book he details the inept handling of the Martha Moxley murder, which occurred in 1975, by the Greenwich, CT police. It is an interesting study of what happened in the case when the combinations of a naïve police force, botched investigation procedures and ...more

The story itself is interesting, but Fuhrman's writing style is amateurish and smug.

Dominick Dunne wrote a juicy fictionalization of the Martha Moxley murder. I got interested in the case and found this book by Mark Fuhrman written in 1998. Based on his analysis he determined that Michael Skakel probably committed the murder. In 2003 M. Skakel was convicted. The rumors of police being paid off by a wealthy family is disturbing. The death of Martha is heartbreaking. I shouldn't read true crime books I get too upset.

Such a sad case but well done by Fuhrman providing the facts. It's sad that money can cover up such a crime and that no one wants to tell the truth, even after all this time. One of these brothers did it. There is no reason for an outside person to have done such a thing, even if they were in the neighborhood that night.

This is a true story about a fifteen year old girl murdered in a rich neighborhood. It explores the case,clues, and suspects. The case was not solved for twenty years or more. The lesson is you may not always know the people you see and talk to every day.
