recall doing such on February 6, 1995.
Another troubling point of conflict is when, exactly, Julie and Tommy were first made aware that Martha Moxley was missing. From her testimony thus far, Julie maintains that she first heard from Mrs. Moxley at some time around 1:15 am or 1:30 am--after which, she woke Tommy to ask if he knew anything, and then reported to Mrs. Moxley that he did not. Julie says that Tommy was asleep when she came into his room. From her interview on 7/26/94:
"I went upstairs and asked Tommy where she was, when the last time he had seen her. He said the back door, and then he had to study for a test. He was tired. So, I went back downstairs and told Mrs. Moxley the same thing."
Tommy may have had a relatively innocuous motive for lying to Dr. Lesse and the police in light of what happened to Martha, he may have been embarrassed, ashamed, frightened, didn't want his father to know, didn't want her mother to know ... etc. This motive would originate after Tommy knew Martha had been murdered. After finding out that something profoundly unsavory had befallen her after their sexual encounter, Tommy might feel a reactionary, irrational associate guilt, and actively want to conceal their mutual masturbation incident out of innocent fear. When Julie came into his room at 1:30 am, however, Tommy was untruthful about the test and when he had last seen Martha.
When confronted with these inconsistencies and other points of confusion during his February 6, 1995, interview with Sutton Associates, Tommy could offer no clarification. Generally, his responses would be limited to "I don't know," or else he would not reply at all. Many divergent and damning conclusions can be drawn when speculating about the significance of these points, but any conclusions, good or bad, will remain only speculation without further cooperation and clarification from Tommy Skakel.
