"A Murder In Greenwich" is a true-story movie based on the Martha Moxley-Michael Skakel true crime case. It is inspired by Mark Fuhrman's book, "Murder In Greenwich: Who Killed Martha Moxley?" The movie's plot is similar to that of another movie based on the same case.
In the 1996 movie, "A Season In Purgatory," all of the names were changed. In Fuhrman's movie, the real names and locations were used.
"A Murder In Greenwich" follows a Los Angeles detective, who has fallen on hard times since he was accused of being a racist cop during the infamous O.J. Simpson trial. The movie takes the viewer on this detective's journey of researching a 25-year-old unsolved murder case, despite residual hostility left over from the Simpson case and from the city of Greenwich.
As Fuhrman digs deep, he finds buried secrets that point to a wealthy family whose son is connected to the crime.
The Martha Moxley case has been the subject of much investigation and speculation over the years. The case has been covered in books, magazines, crime shows and documentaries.
Michael Skakel was convicted for Moxley's murder after more than 25 years. He was originally sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2002. In October 2013, a judge threw out the conviction and ordered a new trial.
