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.

That's a terrible way to go. Unfortunately there is a stigma around mental health issues and a lot of times people don't get the help they need.

I can't help but wonder if Robert was relieved by this news. No alimony...

She gave him 18 years and four children. She was used and thrown away, while hubby ran off to play with a younger blond. Dating as a married man....classy. And probably not his first affair.
RIP Mary, a woman who probably put up with a helluva lot.

This guy is a true Kennedy alright! Liar, cheater and abuser!! My prayers to that poor woman's family and children. I think Cheryl Hines is perfect for a loser like him, probably not as fun f&$king someone's HUSBAND after the poor wife has hanged herself over it! I don't understand the sheer lack of respect woman have lost for one another. Rip Mary, as best you can.

Apparently her fear of losing a lifestyle and connections to a famous husband outweighed her love for her children...nice priorities.

Sad that she allowed the pressures of money and pain of husband moving on take precedence of children and the permanent impact her act would cause. her children. NOBODY is worth killing yourself over... if anything you'd be doing them a favor, and that's not happening. I'd rather stick around and torture them.

How convienient for him. Now he doesn't have to get divorced, he can remain a Catholic in good standing. Wonder who helped her? Why would the police show up to investigate an "unattented death" if no one witnessed it? Cops have never showed up at my place to see if I hanged myself.
