Kerrigan Family: Medical Examiner Is Full of It

2/9/2010 5:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kerrigan FamilyNancy Kerrigan's family is lashing out at the Medical Examiner who ruled Dan Kerrigan's death a homicide ... according to the family's attorney.

The lawyer, Tracy Miner, says "The Kerrigan family is extremely disappointed that the medical examiner would release a cause of death without having all of the relevant facts. We believe this finding to be premature and inaccurate."

The Kerrigans are also standing by Nancy's brother Mark -- who was arrested and charged with assault and battery and could now face more serious charges -- saying, "The Kerrigan family does not blame anyone for the unfortunate death of Dan Kerrigan, who had a pre-existing heart condition."

The M.E. ruled Daniel died from cardiac dysrhythmia after suffering a neck injury during the struggle with his son.

Stupid. The guy throttled his dad, fractured cartilage if this was a stranger there would be NO question of assault with death resulting. I get that they want to stand by family but this guy is a menace and has been in trouble for assault before. If they try and get this swept under the rug this guy might kill someone elses family member.

It's a real shame when a person with no medical knowledge what so ever thinks they know more then the M.E. who performed the autopsy on their dad. They are in denial. The doctor presented the findings and now they refuse to believe that what he said is true. Its pretty sad when they are trying to protect the one person who cause this mans death.

Thank you #4, my thoughts exactly! Keep this guy off the streets to prevent any future heart ache. The Karrigan's are not doctors, I would tend to side with a professional medical examiner. He/she is the one who has seen the damage and has the authority to reach the conclusion.

Nancy is a moron. There is damage there and the Dr saw it. Give it up the whole world isn't out to get you.

As the earlier poster said, if a stranger had come into the house and done this to the father, the family would be insisting on the homicide charge. A sad, but classic, case of a family enabling a troubled, addicted son.
