From what I've heard, yes.

If not murder 1, then certainly murder 2. But hey, he's a Kennedy and we all know thy're a law unto themselves.

No. Perhaps vehicular manslaughter, but not murder. He didn't premeditate driving his car off a bridge and killing someone. It was an accident. He got off too light, but it was not murder.

A little negligent homicide at most. Nothing particularly out of line for the Kennedy clan.

Obviously, I'm all about the Kennedys. Unfortunately, I'm not all about Ted. He didn't murder Mary but he sure as hell killed her. Accidentally of course, but really, saying "oops, I killed her, sorry" doesn't really cut it...

I think he did get away with murder, he got drunk and drove a woman into a lake, if that's not murder, I don't what is.

If he hadn't been drunk I'd say no.

But, his being drunk plus his actions after the accident equal murder to me.

True, on that count it might not have been murder, but the wandering off home and consulting his lawyer before contacting the emergency services the next day could also have contributed to her death. As I recall, there was evidence that she had air in the car for a while, and probably didn't die right away.

One way or another he's got soemthing he should have answered for which he got away with...
