Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s estranged wife Mary Kennedy died yesterday as a result of asphyxiation by hanging -- this according to the Westchester County medical examiner.

The medical examiner does NOT mention the word "suicide" -- though it's being widely reported ... Mary killed herself.

Mary's body was found yesterday afternoon at her home in Bedford, New York . She was already dead by the time police arrived at the home.

According to the Bedford Police Department, officers responded to Mary's home to investigate a possible "unattended death," meaning no one witnessed it.

I have always been very suspect of Robert Kennedy Jr. and his connection with Hugo Chavez and Venezuela oil. I NEVER stop at a Citgo gas station. One quote from Mr. Chavez is, "I am convinced that the path to a new, better and possible world is not capitalism, that path is socialism." Sound familiar. There is no Kennedy curse, only the way they choose to live their lives. Didn't he leave his first wife to marry Mary?

I never quite understood why someone would take their life that way. One would think they would go for a less painful way. But who knows what exactly is going through a persons mind at that moment. Poor woman. Prayers to her and her family. RIP

So sad. What a place of pain she must have been in to think that was the thing to do and leave her children ages 17 - 11. I don't think it was "the curse". I think it is just life. Sometimes it just becomes to much for some people. RIP and I pray for Bobby and the children and Mary's family.

I feel sorry for these Kennedy children, even if they're adults. Their father is out "doinking" celebrities, so their mother decides to just check out from life, in a most gruesome way; and, thus, not be there for anybody in the divorce. This is very sad.
