About that time, Rush took Jimmy home in order that
be might be there by 10:30 pm in order that he could
watch Monty Python." Tommy did not go with
Rush states that he came home at approximately 11:45 pm. At that point, Tom was in his room. Rush slept in the same room with Tom. Rush stated that he retired about 1:00 am and that Tom was asleep approximately at that time. He believes that between 10:00 pm and 1:00 am, Julie, Steven [Stephen], and Michael were at home.
Again, Rush told Dr. Lesse that while he was at the Terriens, Michael was at home. Later in the interview, Rush told Dr. Lesse:
At 11:00 am on October 31st, many police cars gathered around the Moxley residence. "Michael seemed to be the most curious one. He was going nuts. He was in an obnoxious mood."
According to a Tom Sheridan memo: Michael's aunt, Sue Reynolds, who spent much time at the Skakel home after the Moxley incident, observed--that she spent much time eyeball to eyeball with Tommy; and she is persuaded that Tommy had nothing to do with the crime." On the other hand, she has "very negative vibrations with reference to Michael." Michael is deeply involved in alcohol and not under control--he is capable of anything" -- she also states that Martha Moxley was at one time Michael's girlfriend. This is a confirmation to Margolis. It has been reported to him by others. This means that the Greenwich Police know this fact.
There is more evidence, still, that Michael did not get in that car leaving for the Terrien's [Terriens']. Consider the striking discrepancies between the way Tommy recalls their departure versus the way Michael recalls their departure:
Tommy's version: When Tom and Martha were "fooling around" behind the fence, Tom heard Rush, John, Michael, and Jimmy leaving for Jimmy Dowdle's [Terrien's preferred last name] house. Tom went over to the Lincoln and remembers having a brief conversation with either Jimmy or John. While Tom cannot recall what was discussed, he speculated that it may have been about drugs, stating, "Jimmy was into that." He stated he believes John was in the front seat. In response to questions as to why he didn't go with them, Tom stated, "maybe I wanted to fool around with Martha some more."
Michael's version: Thomas Skakel exited the house and announced they were going to the Skakel [Terrien] residence to watch the Monty Python Show. Michael asked Moxley to go with them, but she declined, stating she couldn't because her mother expected her home. T. Skakel said he couldn't go because he had to study for an exam. Moxley exited the vehicle and as Michael, Rushton Jr., John, and J. Dowdell [Dowdle] pulled from the driveway, Michael saw T. Skakel speaking with M. Moxley near the side door. Also in the driveway were Helen Ix, Jeff [Geoff] Byrne, and Marge Walker.
