Nancy Kerrigan: I Will Help My Brother Fight

In a letter to friends and family, Nancy Kerrigan says the official cause of death for her father -- homicide -- was "unjustified" and her family plans "to help my brother fight."

The Medical Examiner determined Dan Kerrigan died from cardiac dysrhythmia after suffering a neck injury during a fight with his son, Mark.

Nancy writes her father "was the ultimate role model. We will miss my dad every day ... our family is stronger for having had him in our life."

Mark faces criminal assault and battery on an elder with serious bodily injury ... prosecutors could file more serious charges following the autopsy findings.

May I suggest that you use the metal rod Tonya Harding's goon hit you with to protect your brother.

Oh yeah, keep enabling the brother - that'll help him straighten out to not hurt or allegedly kill anyone else. (sarcasm)

Maybe he should MAN UP for ONCE.

I guess the Kerrigans are in deep denial over the truth. It's a shame. I can understand to a point that they want to help Marc out, but the fact remains he put his hands on his elderly father & choked him. Just the fact that he put his hands on the dad should be a factor that this dude needs some serious help. I mean, when all is said and done, it's the famiies decision to whether or not want to press charges against Marc.

No it isn't the families decision deary, it's the states decision. It may be the families decision to press civil charges or not but the criminal charges are up to the family. What you have to realize if that Dad is dead and gone but Baby Brother is warm and alive. Of course they are going to defend a family member. Just like a mother will deny her kid did it to the end, that is what Nancy is going through. If he had attacked Dad, Dad may still be here today. That is some kind of crime to me! You don't "rough up" old people. That's just how it is.

Why, so he can get away with murder and them kill your whole family. I cannot believe they are making excuse for this man. This man kill her father. What is wrong with this family.

It does NOT work - it makes things worse. Case in point.

He'll probably plead guilty to a lesser charge of involuntary manslaughter and spend a few years in prison. Maybe he'll clean up his act there.

The family can't really help him, and the mom, even though she was there during the fight, would be a bad witness because she's legally blind!
