The golf club that killed Martha came from the house of Thomas and Michael Skakel, two boys who had been with Martha the night she died. Wealthy and prominent in their own right, the Skakels were related to the Kennedys, as Ethel Skakel Kennedy was the boys' aunt. When the police started looking closely at the Skakels' involvement, the family refused to cooperate.
