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.

The guy suffers from PSTD after being a vet. The amount of vaccinations that are pumped into these guys are a tragedy. Some have the detoxing ability to handle them, others can't. My guess is that this was a normal, nice guy until "something" happened and the family feels helpless. Not defending what he did - violence is never ok -- but there's a reason why he's so messed up.

Whoa!    

Sounds like they'd better consult a cranial proctologist because they all seem to have their heads up their arses. Look at what sheltering your son/brother has accomplished...a good man is now dead. If that was my father you can bet I wouldn't be looking to protect my brother. Far from it!

Well what do you expect from a homewrecking Nancy who wants to keep everything hush hush unless if it makes her look like a victim. Sad. Let the cops do their jobs. Lock the crackhead up. How could you kill your parent? Loser.

I suspect that the family has been making excuses for Mark for some time; that's how he ended up here!

...have to agree with "Oh Please". If a stranger had committed this crime against her father, I'm certain the family would be screaming for this kind of report. It's a sad situation.

They are trying to protect a sibling who murdered his own father! Nancy's brother beat and choked he ex-wife and that crime sent him to prison for four years, now this. That family is crazy. People are disgusted with this family for constantly protecting this vicious thug. He tried to kill his ex-wife the same way so how could they be so blind and stupid. What about Mr. Kerrigan!

If this looney tunes had not choked his father he would not have had the heart attack. This family took care of him and allowed this bum to live with them because he was perpetually unemployed due to his bad temper and drug binges.

Tim-
First of all the son didn't SCARE him he ATTACKED him!

Also, why should we care? Hmm...maybe we should let this psychotic loser keep his freedom & come attack YOUR family...

Then we will see how much you don't care.

Whether they want to admit it or not it seems that this Mark guy is responsible for his Dad's passing. My brother is a loser just like him and the longer they coddle him the longer he will continue with his ways. Enablers don't help. I know. I used to be one. Charge him with homocide and send him off to where he belongs before he gets another notch under his belt.

What idiots. Yeah, right, he's a real saint. I'll bet a million bucks they'd never leave him alone with Mom after this despite how "innocent" he is.
