This supplementary document is intended as a reference guide to various accounts of the events of Thursday, October 30, 1975 and Friday, October 31, 1975. The objective was to create a concise sequential record of circumstances immediately leading up to, and following, the murder of Martha Moxley, in order to illustrate conflicts in testimony, the actions and whereabouts of suspects, and points of interest worthy of further investigation. While this time-line includes multiple and often opposing perspectives, it is by no means comprehensive. As much as possible, specific details and their reported time of occurrence have been attributed to the proper source and context. It is important to remember that times should generally be viewed as approximate and subject to reasonable variance.
