Mark #1 9:15 Michael was in the Skakel car, listening to music tapes with Helen Ix, Jeffery [Geoffrey] Byrne, and Martha Moxley. It was shortly after this point that Martha got out of the car to join Tommy in flirting, and sexual horseplay. Littleton, we believe, was with the younger Skakel children. We do not have a specific account of how Michael responded to this activity, or, more importantly, exactly where he was after this point.
Jim Terrien maintains that, along with Rush, John, and Michael, he left the Skakel residence for his house at around 9:30 pm. Andrea Shakespeare, however, contradicts this account. While she is not sure of the exact time, she says Terrein left well before her own departure. Julie has stated she drove Andrea home at around 9:30. Andrea believes it was about 9:50 pm. At any rate, it is Andrea's strong opinion that Michael did not go to the Terrien's [Terriens'] residence with his brothers. Hearing that story, sometime after the homicide, she said to herself, "That"s bullshit. No way did Michael go to Terrien's [Terriens']. While she cannot be absolutely certain, Andre believes that she saw Michael at some point after John, Rush and Jim left for the Terrien's [Terriens'].
Her conviction is supported by additional evidence; most notably, the hypnosis session with John in which he never put Michael either in the car, coming or going, or at the Terrien household. On 5/4/93, John was asked where Michael was while he and Rush were at the Terrien's [Terriens']. The interviewer, on repeated occasions, tried to get John to place Michael in the car and then at the Terrein's [Terriens']. John could not. After being pushed, he would only recall that maybe someone else was in the car and at the Terrien's [Terriens'] house. As much as the interviewer persisted, hinted, and pushed, John could not identify that person as Michael, and even said he felt Michael was back at the Skakel house.
Gaspar: Who is in the room with you? You, Jimmy, who else?
Gaspar: Did you hear anybody come in or leave? Did the telephone ring?
John: I don't recall.
Gaspar: Where's Ken and Michael and Julie now?
John: Anyone who didn't come back with us is back at Belle Haven.
They discuss the ride back to Belle Haven:
Gaspar: When you drove back from the Terrien's [Terriens'], who drove?
