Hyannis, Massachusetts/True Crime Stories - A dogged Dominick Dunne, 83, remained true to his mantra as he followed Ted Kennedy in Death today, making good a vow to "follow Ted to hell in order to get the real story behind Chappaquiddick!"
The well known author, and special editor for Vanity Fair, became well known for his chronicles of the famous trials of O.J. Simpson, the Menendez Brothers, Michael Skakel, William Kennedy Smith, Phil Spector and the impeachment of President William Clinton.
A dogged investigator of criminals after his own daughter was murdered in California, he often said his greatest failure was that the veil of secrecy surrounding the unfortunate death of Mary Jo Kopechne still haunted him.
As his life wound down he told close confidants he wanted to put an end to the Chappaquiddick fiasco, and said "I'm willing to follow Ted to Hell to finally get 'the rest of the story'!"
A national tabloid dealing on occult matters, says it inked a contract with Dunne shortly before his death from cancer. A spokesman said they had hired a Texas medium, Madame Bitters, to communicate with Dunne and act as his Ghost Writer for the expected shocking real story on the Cape Cod Tragedy.
A Spokesman for the Kennedy family said they would oppose the publication of the book on "humanitarian grounds", saying Ted had suffered enough in his life and that he "broke out in hives anytime anyone mentioned taking a scuba diving vacation."
Madame Bitters is said to have received her first communication from the iconic writer, saying only, "the first draft is a little rough, but REALLY, REALLY hot!"
