Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Says His Cousin Michael Skakel Is Not a Killer: 'Police Can Target Innocent People'

8 July 2016 9:20 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Fourteen years after Michael Skakel was convicted of murdering 15-year-old friend Martha Moxley, his cousin Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has written an explosive new book, Framed, that claims they got the wrong man. In the new book, Kennedy writes that Skakel, whose conviction was set aside in 2013 and now faces the possibility of a new trial, was "framed" for a murder he never could have committed. Kennedy, 62, also names the two men - Adolph Hasbrouck and Burr Tinsley - he believes are guilty of the murder.  (Neither man was ever charged with the murder and neither could be reached for comment for this story. »

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Makes New Claims Two Men Killed Martha Moxley in 1975 - Not His Cousin Michael Skakel

6 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Many people believe Michael Skakel killed 15-year-old Martha Moxley in 1975. But his cousin Robert F. Kennedy Jr. isn't one of them. "There were a lot of suspects who had much stronger evidence against them than Michael," Kennedy, the son of slain Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and Ethel Skakel, tells People exclusively. Skakel's murder conviction in Moxley's death was set aside in 2013, when a judge ruled that his original defense attorney, Mickey Sherman, was inadequate. Skakel has been free ever since, released on a $1.2 million bond, and is awaiting a state Supreme Court's decision on whether or not he will receive a new trial. »
