And the Mystery Continues …
After the second guilty conviction of Michael Skakel, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. released his own book on the case, entitled “Framed. Why Michael Skakel Spent Over a Decade in Prison for a Murder He Didn’t Commit.” Kennedy said his cousin was innocent and that the likely suspects were two black teenagers from New York who had been in the neighborhood on “Mischief Night” and according to a friend had said they wanted to attack a girl “cave-man style.” It is ludicrous to believe two random black teenagers would board a train from NYC to Greenwich, Connecticut and then walk all the way to the private, well guarded enclave of Belle Haven without a single police officer or “concerned” citizen calling security in the all-white, rich residential neighborhood. But this is the kind of “spaghetti-on-the-wall” defense one would expect of the Kennedy Family. By the way, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is the same Kennedy who is a noted conspiracy theorist and a prominent anti-vaxxer whose claims have been debunked on multiple fronts. He has also been banned from multiple social media outlets.
Ethel Kennedy wrote a long, handwritten letter to the judge bluntly asking that the scales of justice be tipped in the favor of her nephew Michael Skakel asking, “With a heavy heart, yet with hope borne of the morning sun I write to ask that your compassion will tip the scales in your decision regarding my nephew, Michael Skakel.”
Sutton Associates, a private-detective firm hired by Rushton Skakel, Michael’s father, to divert attention from his son Tommy, found that the Skakel boys were lying contrary to what Rushton hoped would be a report to exonerate his family.
Many of the Skakel Family are buried in the same cemetery as Martha and her father.
