Mary Kennedy Dead from Alleged Suicide

The ‘Curse of Camelot’ has claimed another victim. Mary Kennedy, the wife of Robert Kennedy Jr, has allegedly claimed her own life. Mrs. Kennedy, 52, was found in the family’s illustrious New York compound, hanging in a barn on her Mount Kisco estate.

She was the ex wife to Robert Kennedy Jr–the third eldest of Robert Kennedy’s 11 children–and a mother to their four children. The official cause of death is asphyxiation due to hanging, and reports claim that a suicide note was left by the deceased.

Friends and family have revealed that Mary Kennedy was struggling with a drug and alcohol addiction. Robet Kennedy Jr, 58, was seen entering their home Wednesday evening. The two had been married for 16 years before divorcing in 2010. Robert Kennedy Jr has been living in Los Angeles with TV actress Cheryl Hines, and it’s reported that the children were not at home when Mary allegedly took her life. Her body was found by their housekeeper.
