0517_robert_kennedy_INFA day after his estranged wife reportedly hanged herself at her New York home, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. showed up at the property, looking distressed.

As we reported, the Westchester County medical examiner claims 52-year-old Mary Kennedy died yesterday as a result of asphyxiation due to hanging at her Mount Kisco home. The medical examiner hasn't specified suicide, but it's being widely reported Mary killed herself.

Mary and RFK Jr. were married in 1994. RFK Jr. filed for divorce sixteen years later in 2010. He's currently rumored to be dating actress Cheryl Hines.

pretty terrible people who comment here on TMZ.
Kennedys are known for liking more than one woman but that's no reason to kill herself. she'd probably have plenty of money and her health

Sociopaths are Sad    

The only decent one in that family was JFK Jr. And as for his "beautiful young wife" - come on, she was a huge drug addict. JFK Jr. made a huge judgement error in flying that plane late at night but he didn't do it on purpose. He was a decent guy, just not very bright, poor thing. But the other Kennedy's are psychopathic snakes, definitely. And of course none of them have any respect for women (with the exception of JFK Jr.) but that's all because of Joe Kennedy and what he taught them.

Joe Kennedy ran booze to make that family empire. John, and Bobby probably had something to do with Marylin Monroe. And Ted drowned Marry Joe, got away with it, and Died a U.S. Senator. I'm hoping the police are looking into this. She was a pretty lady, and may she rest in peace..

After watching that video, one can only conclude that it was a staged photo op. That house is a mega complex and yet Mr. Kennedy decided to grieve in a small area in front of all the photographers.

I don't know why I'm writing this horrible thing if she was a guy they would say she was masturbating.

I don't know about the rest of it, but I pray she is in peace wherever she is and that their children will be comforted. And God will judge.

Is wearing the same red tracksuit as the Six Million Dollar Man Bobby's way of mourning?

he should feel a little bit guilty
not his fault that she killed herself
the rssponsibility for the decision lies with her alone
but
his early drug addiction and constant cheating and then leaving her heightened her depression that contributed to her self-medicating with alcohol
he bears a bit of culpability that way
sadly.. if she inherited a predisposition to addiction/alcohol abuse... it was a tragedy waiting to happen perhaps
I can't hel but feel sorry for her and the pain she was trying to cope with
but siicide is not the answer
too bad with all of the money/fame/connecitons of the Kennedy family- that none of them could (or bothered to) direct the right kind of help her way
but i

I am so sick of hearing about this "Kennedy Curse". Aside from the 2nd generation of Kennedy's (the assassinated brothers, the one lost to the war) the others have all died because of stupid risky behaviors they chose to engage in. Teddy Kennedy lived to be a fairly old man who died of illness like many who are blessed to live a long enough life WILL eventually do. JFK, Jr elected to be a small planes pilot, the brother playing football on snow skis (still boggles the mind), etc. So many of these "tragedies" could have been avoided. Same goes for the illicit and immoral lifestyle of many of the boys.

It's funny, the Kennedy women (the blood related ones) always seem to turn out pretty well, it's the men who seem to think they are above it all. Seems to be the women who marry into the family take the brunt of it...alcoholism seems to be the trend which sounds like something this latest victim also had in common with some of the others. Convenient now that RFK, Jr won't have alimony to contend with or custody issues. He can carry on with his actress girlfriend in peace and harmony.

DEPRESSION IS THE REAL MONSTER HERE. UNLESS YOU'VE BEEN THERE YOURSELF
IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE THAT A PERSON, ESPECIALLY OTHERWISE HEALTHY, (WEALTHY & WISE TOO) WOULD WANT DEATH RATHER THAN CONTINUE TO LIVE SUCH AN AGONIZING LIFE.

Depression is the real monster here. I used to find it hard to believe that a physically healthy (wealthy and wise too) person would find death the only remedy to their life of torment. When you start to think about that option, you're very close to crossing that line. One has to REALLY believe that there is a cure for him/her, and the real goal in life is to just make it through another day no matter how horrendously difficult it is.
