AuthorTalk with Don Nelson Author of Chappaquiddick Tragedy
Thursday March 15, 2018
On July 19, Senator Ted Kennedy reported an accident he had had the previous night in which Mary Jo Kopechne had drowned. No one believed the story he wrote in his police report and the mystery surrounding this incident still baffles some to this day. Why was Kopechne in the rear seat? Why didn't Kennedy call for help after the crash? Why was Rosemary Keough's handbag found in the submerged, inverted car on the ceiling of the front-seat compartment? Perhaps, as the author proposes, there is an alternative theory that would answer all of these questions.
Nelson's account of the event pulls back the cloak of the cover-up in Chappaquiddick Tragedy: Kennedy's Second Passenger Revealed.
