Nancy Kerrigan: I Will Help My Brother Fight

2/11/2010 5:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Nancy, your brother beat up an old man. That should put him behind bars for any charge.

Maybe he belongs in a mental hospital, but he sure doesn't need to be out on the street or around family or friends.

Once a batterer always a batterer.

Why don't you accept the reality?

Wouldn't Pat Robertson say the father died because he sinned against God ?

Triple Axel, sorry but trying to rationalize this situation by saying the elder FATHER shouldn't have started a fight if he knew he had a heart condition or shouldn't have denied his son use of the phone is stupid. It's the FATHERS house, who knows what the son had done before.. oh wait we DO know, he also beat his wife and was jailed for it. Not letting your son use the phone is no excuse for physical violence, an argument is not excuse to strangle someone, much less a family member, much less an elderly family member with a heart condition who is letting your loser, fresh out of jail, lazy a$$ live in his basement. Scary that you would even suggest such a thing.

NAncy supporting him will be a huge mistake both personally and career wise. He will get convicted and they will out a ton of money in legal fees as well.

Wow! This is the worst case of enabling and denial that I have ever seen. Her brother kills the Dad and the family covers up for him. I think this whole family needs serious therapy!!!

You have failed as a parent if your kid is jobless, been in and out of jail and living in your basement when he's in his 40's.

The "Scapegoat" always gets the blame in a Dysfunctional Family. Try a lifetime of that before you judge this guy.

This Sister siding with the brother, is the cuse of problem in this family, and although I do NOT know anything about this Family though, but there is usually brother / sister incest in such families, with the mother enabling the secrecy. The father never knows nothing. Yes I have seen such cases. very strange here, the father was clearly violently assaulted and his wife and daughter defend the attacker. Who knows here

Who fricken cares...Nancy showed her true self when she came in second at the Olympics. She was snotty and bitchy because the winner was getting 'groomed' before the medal ceremony.

Nancy had an affair with a married man, her manager, whom she eventually married.

Of course she is going to support her brother...because he is using the poor me I grew up in the shadows of Nancy defense.

Totally agree with this post. She was bitchy to Oksana who beat her in the Olympics. Oksana had dedicated her performance to her mother who had passed away and was very emotional. Nancy put her snide comment in saying "Stop your crying already." Then when she was in Orlando in a Disney parade she told her mom "This is so stupid." And of course, the affair with the married man who she eventually married. I hope he has cheated or will cheat on her. She was a spoiled brat and her true colors showed during these episodes. Her dad held down 2-3 jobs from what I understand so the brat could continue her skating. So much for gratitude as she is sticking up for her lunatic brother. Anybody else not related to the Kerrigans, they would be screaming for the electric chair.
