      A fascinating man. He played a pivotal role in solving the murder of Martha Moxley. She was found bludgeoned in between her house and her neighbors. The main suspect in the case was Michael Skakel sone of Rushton Skakel. Ethel Skakel Kennedy was Rushton's sister and she of course was the widow of RFK. Greenwich Conn at the time of the murder had no actual police force. Instead they had a glorified security guard. After the murder these police went to the Skakel home and asked to come in and search. They were denied access. "Murder in Greenwich" was the book Dunne wrote about that killing. He collaborated with Detective Mark Fuhrman formerly of the LAPD.
