Mary Kennedy, the estranged wife of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., has died.

She was 52. Law enforcement sources say she was found dead in her Mount Kisco, N.Y., home this morning. The cause of death has not been reported.

Mary and RFK Jr. were married in 1994. She was Robert's second wife. The couple, who separated nearly two years ago, has four kids together.

The radio host, political activist and nephew of JFK filed for divorce from his wife mere days before Mary Kennedy was charged with DUI in 2010.

According to Radar Online, a source revealed that the cause of death was suicide, though police have yet to even confirm or deny this report.

In any case, may she rest in peace.

UPDATE: "We deeply regret the death of our beloved sister Mary, whose radiant, creative spirit will be sorely missed by those who loved her," Mary Kennedy's family said in a statement released through her lawyer Kerry Lawrence.

"Our heart goes out to her children who she loved without reservation.

So many in this family have suffered a tragic life or a tragic end. Peace to Mary's family and to her holy soul.


A lesson learned from such a sad, position, name, doesn't mean happiness.
My heart aches for the children and my prayers are for Mary. It is Faith that keeps us centered
and grounded. Without it, nothing else matters. Sad to say, perhaps Mary knew this. Just to have a loving husband, one who cares and respects you is indeed the greatest gift.
May she rest in peace.


I knew Mary Kennedy for several years and she was a beautiful, gracious lady. For something like this to happen, surely is a tragedy. My sincere condolences go out to her children and family. I hope she is at peace now. RIP Mary.


My thoughts and prayers go out to the family, and my heart breaks for the children. Knew Mary and Bobby for quite some years, nobody deserves this. Doesn't matter what the past is, this is tragic. Saw the media-circus outside the house just now on my way home from work. I know this is news, but couldn't they give the family a break?


Robert Kennedy the second was dating actess Cheryl Hines at the time of his wifes suicide ..She's the one who played the part of the wife of Larry David on Curb your enthusiasm...


Come on people keep the mean hateful remarks to yourself the family is grieving and should not be subject to such statements the kennedys have always and always will be a powerful and well loved family...My condolences to the children and loved ones.


It's always sad when someone passes away, but I think it's incredibly selfish for a mother of 4 to kill herself. When you have children, you should be there for them forever and not just take the easy way out because you are depressed. When you have kids, you should put them first and I'm sure this isn't what any of them would have wanted. I'm sorry, but I just think that's really selfish.


Come on people the kennedys have always and always will be a powerful well loved family..My condolences to the children,family and loved ones.


Talk about Sins of the Father. In his lifetime, Joseph Kennedy, through ruthlessness and pure greed, achieved power, fame and fortune for his family and then lived to see his dream die with the tragic deaths of his sons and Chappaquidick. Now, it seems the tragedies are following the next generation. How sad for everyone involved, especially the children. As a teen, I idolized Robert Kennedy and always thought it would be great to be part of his family or marry into it. Now, I'm so glad that I live an average life with my wonderful husband. Fame and foture aren't always worth it!


last post by ccraig - he must,gotta be, GOP lover who is brainwashed. He/she has no idea what they are talking about. What an insulting SOB. Get educated and really learn the Kennedy contributions to our society, middle class and the poor folks. What a shame people like you have no "smarts"..........the GOP is brainwashing the media watchers of FOX. Romney won't even grant an interview to the other medias, why,,, figure it out yourself, if you are any where capable to do so.
