Nephew of Ethel Kennedy

Why he might be annoying
Growing up, he bullied other kids and killed small animals.
His sister Julie said, 'Michael scares me to death.'
Moxley was bludgeoned to death with the six iron from a rare set of Tony Penna golf clubs; the Skakels owned a set of Tony Penna clubs and the six iron was missing when police searched the house.
He was convicted of DUI (1978) and sent to Elan School for treatment for alcoholism.
According to another Elan resident, Skakel bragged, 'I'm going to get away with murder. I'm a Kennedy.'
Why he might not be annoying
He was dyslexic.
His alcoholism began after his mother died of brain cancer (1973).
Cousin Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. said he was 'the runt of the litter with a harsh and occasionally violent alcoholic father who both ignored and abused him.'
He competed on the international speed skiing circuit and came closing to making the US team for the Winter Olympics in Albertville, France (1992).
