Mary Kennedy: Rest in Peace
The estranged wife of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was found dead inside her Westchester County home on Wednesday.
Mary Kennedy, 52, was discovered on the Bedford property and suicide is believed to be the cause of death, sources told CBS 2. Beford Police responded to the home on South Bedford Road around 1:30 p.m. on reports of a possible “unattended death.”
“We deeply regret the death of our beloved sister Mary, whose radiant and creative spirit will be sorely missed by those who loved her. Our heart goes out to her children who she loved without reservation. We have no further comment at this time.”
After her husband filed for divorce in July 2010, Mary Kennedy had a very public struggle with drugs and alcohol which included a couple of arrests for DUI. More recently it has been reported that she also struggled with depression over the divorce. How very sad. Rest in Peace.
