Martha Moxley was a popular 15 year old living with her parents and bother in the exclusive neighborhood of Belle Haven in Greenwich, Connecticut. Across the street from the Moxley’s lived the Skakel’s, related by marriage to the Kennedy’s. Martha was friends with two of the Skakel boys, 15 year old Michael and 17 year old Tommy. So her mother, Dorthy, thought nothing of it when on the night of October 30, 1975, Martha asked and was allowed to go across the street to a party at the Skakel’s house. BUT, Martha never came home that night. Her parents searched the neighborhood and called all of her friends, no one knew where she was until the next day. Halloween afternoon Martha’s beaten dead body was found under a tree in her own back yard. She had been beaten and killed in her driveway the night before between 9:30pm and 10:00pm, then dragged to where she was found. The murder weapon was found to be a golf club used in such a fit of rage that it had broken from the hard blows to Martha’s body. Because they were the last to see Martha, Michael and Tommy were immediately under suspicion. Listen as Beth dives deeper into this case. Was the right person imprisoned or is there someone out there that was never even questioned?
October 31, Halloween. We have parties, trick or treat, wear costumes, and watch scary movies, but where in this world did the holiday of Halloween come from? Bettina goes back 2,000 years to the Celtic festival of Samhain and takes you through the evolution of the Halloween we know today.
