New evidence in Martha Moxley murder focuses on Skakel classmate
Nearly 28 years after Martha Moxley was murdered in Greenwich and more than a year after Kennedy-cousin Michael Skakel was convicted of the crime, new evidence has surfaced. Skakel's defense team is accusing two Bronx men of killing Moxley, and they say there is a person to corroborate the allegations.
Gitano "Tony" Bryant, a cousin of NBA star Kobe Bryant, told Skakel's investigator that two of his friends bragged about killing Moxley. Bryant, who attended a Greenwich private school with Skakel, says his two friends would occasionally come from the Bronx to party inside Greenwich's gated Belle Haven community. Bryant reportedly told Skakel's investigator that the two men were in Belle Haven on the night of the murder, and they bragged about using Skakel's golf clubs to kill Moxley.
A Bridgeport attorney thinks the biggest obstacle Skakel's defense team will face in trying to get a new trial is proving Bryant's credibility. The Hartford Courant is reporting that one of the two men Bryant named is now living in Bridgeport. The man, who is now 43, confirms speaking to Skakel's investigator but denies having any involvement in Moxley's murder.
