"chappaquiddick" Discussed on Conspiracy Theories

"This is our second and final episode on the Chappaquiddick incident of nineteen sixty nine when rising star Senator Senator Ted Kennedy crashed his car into a pond on Chappaquiddick island the incident resulted in the death of Mary Jo Kopechne e and to this day there are questions regarding how she died why she was in the car and what led Ted Kennedy to wait ten hours before notifying lying the authorities that he had left a woman trapped in a submerged vehicle. The chappaquiddick incident is among the most famous political scandals in American history three and is seen as the key reason that Ted Kennedy never had the chance to follow in his brother's footsteps for real shot at a presidential run but the legacy of the entire affair is inherently problematic in no small part because we tend to refer to it as a political scandal and not on a case of manslaughter over the past ten years ever since Ted Kennedy passed away at has come to be accepted that the real story story of Chappaquiddick may never be known after all the two people who were in the car that night are both dead and gone and this episode episode. We're going to examine the unanswered questions that still swirl today over the chappaquiddick incident our first conspiracy theory is the Ted Kennedy's Kennedy's account of when he left the Party and when he crashed is false this is best evidenced by the so called missing our between when and Ted Kennedy left the Party and when he was supposedly spotted by a sheriff's deputy over an hour later our second conspiracy theory is that Ted Kennedy he was intoxicated or otherwise impaired that night and that this was the reason for both the crash and his actions immediately following it finally Ted Kennedy waited ten hours before he reported the crash. It's been suggested though obviously never proven that Mary Jo lived for much longer than initially suspected and that she may have been rescued. If only Ted had gone for help in our last episode we discussed the decades long series of events that ultimately led to Ted Kennedy and Mary Jo Kopechne e attending that party on Chappaquiddick island on the evening of July Eighteenth nineteen sixty nine ted was the youngest son of Joseph Kennedy Senior. The New England millionaire and Patriarch of of the Kennedy Family Joe Senior groomed his sons to succeed in politics but between nineteen forty.

Every action has an effect every choice a consequence and sometimes in the rarest of occasions a person is is presented with a life or death choice that will come to define them. That was the case for Senator Ted Kennedy in the summer of Nineteen sixty-nine on Chappaquiddick Island in Massachusetts though the official account of what happened that night is somewhat muddled. The facts are as follows late at night after a party Kennedy set off down Chappaquiddick road in his oldsmobile with him was Mary Jo Kopechne acne a former campaign staffer for the recently assassinated Robert Kennedy. There was an accident. The car hit a barrier and flipped over into the water. Ted Got out and survived but Mary Mary Jo was left trapped in the car. Ted Kennedy did not inform the police about the accident until ten hours later when the car was recovered in Mary. Jo's body was found inside the initial reaction Ocean from the divers was that she hadn't actually drowned she'd suffocated and if Ted Kennedy had called the police immediately she may still be alive today.

"Okay so i'm going to try to walk this through simply as possible while pointing out what is on the record and by whom they were there in martha's vineyard that we done for the editor town regatta and victim became a night that day and and after the race they went back to chappaquiddick island which important to the story is a ferry ride off of the mainland there's no way to access it other than by ferry and no one was planning on staying at chappaquiddick that evening ted kennedy had a room in town at the charlottetown in all the boiler room girls had a room at a different hotel on the mainland and the only person i think that was actually going to stay on guyland was the person who arranged for the party and that was taking these cousin joe garden and he becomes very important the story as we continue as we said the party was simply that a cookout with friends reminiscent music was played we know we assume there was dancing ultimately one of the boiler room girls asked us to cut out the dancing so there's no dancing in the movie anymore and what type kennedy has said in what many of the boiler room girls said under oath was that ted kennedy and mary joe left at eleven fifteen type timothy has said that mary jo said that she wasn't feeling well and that he was taking her back to her hotel i don't know if we're getting too deep into the weeds here but i'll tell you that mary jo left her purse with her hotel room he at the cottage and so it leads to questions about how she was expecting to get into her room if that was the case tech kennedy says the accident happened shortly thereafter after he made a wrong turn off of main road onto dyke road this is again a very complicated things try to describe an audio but to save this was a mistaken turn is a little bit stretching credulity because main road is they pay road obviously the way that you would go to get to the very jimmy had been back and forth on the theory multiple times i'd a and probably had been many times in his life prior to that.

"Why not a conspiracy story why not a thriller why not you know a sort of full life biography how did this become the story that you told as far as the conspiracy movie goes the joke that men andrew yeah made even at the time was like oliver stone has already had his chance at the kennedy family so we don't really want to do that again and you know i think that a famous thing amongst writers for biopics is that nothing is worse than the cradle to grave yeah aspect we watched a couple of those sundance this year there was a writer dying of what might have been terrific yetlis boy how to but the great thing about chappaquiddick and i think the great thing about any movie about a real person is that it really is an event that in seven days and that's the period of i'm the movie covers his one week of ted's life you really do see how he changed and how it had a permanent impact on the rest of his life and so we did hope you know in telling this story that even though we weren't going to discuss you know things like the assassination of jfk in the movie that you would feel all that legacy and all those you know waits on ted shoulders at the start and then you'd see how the chapa quick incident ends up changing him and making him from the potentially ambitious presidential candidate into the like great senator that he ended up becoming i think that was like our north star you know in terms of how to focus his character and focus themes of the movie from the start and i think just in terms of our sin.

"And so i think that asking the question for our selves like what are we passionate about what you wanna do and not worry about what where the script is going to end up but just that we wanted to write something that we thought that we could really tell an interesting story because when we started it we literally thought no way in hell this will ever get made and that the best case scenario is that like it would get passed around and people would think that these guys can write pretty good like that's literally like what we thought would be the best case scenario so how did you start to dig in on this so we are very fortunate because chappaquiddick is referred to sometimes as the most well documented car accident of all time and so we did have a wealth of research at our fingertips to start with but one of the things that was really important to us when we started was we didn't wanna make a conspiracy movie we didn't wanna make a movie built around here say and so we were really lucky that we were able to you know freedom of information you know find the actual court transcripts for the inquest into whether crime had been committed that weekend and my father is an attorney helpful in that regard actually always good to have a lawyer in the family yeah no i think as we end up talking more like the fact that andrews raised by a lawyer and that he like you know really does look up to his dad like i think that that influenced how we wrote the script a great deal and you know we'll get into that and do time i mean you raise an interesting point which is the story you wanted to tell about this event store you didn't wanna tell about this because there are any number of versions of this movie so.
