NEW YORK Mary Richardson Kennedy, the estranged wife of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., was found dead on the familys property north of New York City on Wednesday, two years after her husband filed for divorce and following a history of drug and alcohol problems.
Kerry A. Lawrence, a lawyer who had represented Mary Kennedy in a 2010 drunk driving case, confirmed the death, but neither he nor police in the town of Bedford in Westchester County, N.Y., released a cause of death. An autopsy was scheduled Thursday, the Associated Press reported.
According to a brief statement from Bedford police, officers were called to the Kennedy home in neighboring Mount Kisco at 1:36 p.m. Wednesday to investigate a possible unattended death. The statement said that officers found a deceased person inside an outbuilding on the property and that an investigation into the cause of death was underway.
Mary Kennedy, 52, was the second wife of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a prominent environmentalist and lawyer who is the third child of Ethel and the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and a nephew of President Kennedy. The couple married in April 1994, about a month after his divorce from Emily Black. They had their first child, Conor, that summer. They also had a daughter, Kyra, and two more sons, William and Aiden.
Mary inspired our family with her kindness, her love, her gentle soul and generous spirit, the family of Robert Kennedy said in a statement, according to the AP.
Before marrying Robert Kennedy, Richardson had been a longtime friend of his sister Kerry. The two women met at Putney, a boarding school in Vermont, and later roomed together at Brown University, according to the 1999 book Girlfriends, by Jayne Wexler and Lauren Cowan.

RFK Jr. was about 9 when his Uncle Jack was assassinated, and about 14 when his father RFK was assassinated.
He did not seek elected office. I’d say the guy has known tragedy in his family. Quite sad indeed.
Money and fame ain’t what it is cracked up to be.
You are right in spite of sounding wrong.
I always believed that's what happened and so did many others. At the time, I couldn't understand why Caroline didn't question anything because it seemed so obvious.
The Kennedy family must be cursed..nothing good ever comes of them.
Mr. Gordon should have harped on something more useful or used repeatedly. How many times does someone say that in a lifetime? This is my second time and weird as it maybe, the first was about 12 years ago on the same road as this one but about 10 min away.
So true! Having it all certainly doesn’t mean having it all.
Well, I read that he, while filing for divorce two years ago, they weren’t divorced but he is dating someone now.
As am I.
Another Kennedy man kills another women. Nothing to see move along.
what an obscenely effed up family
She does not have any DNA from the Kennedy. She was just married to one.
I hang myself listening to his whining voice all the time.
Let’s not forget how Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel got framed for murdering the neighbor girl. Somehow they got her to impale her head on the golf club shaft he just happened to be holding.
Very f’d up family.
What’s sad is that Robert Kennedy was living in Los Angeles with his actress girlfriend. He knew Mary had problems, but he left his family for fun in LA. Dealing with four children is a hard. Robert Kennedy should have lived closer to the family and helped with the children. Maybe if he had Mary would be alive today.
And the curse must have also been visited on the American people for all these generations too for having believed in the Kennedys.
Mr. Grammar? Really? Both of my Grammars were female.
No, sorry. there's no 'curse'. It's 'the family way' learned and passed down by 'grandpa' Joe Kennedy. Bootlegger, Mafia Associate Hoodlum, Hollywood big-shot womanizer, Nazi sympathizer, and all around creep who thought HE and all his male spawn were above The Law. And who, in his spare time had his own daughters Lobotomized because 'she embarrassed the family' (she was 'slow' or 'mildly retarded' as they said back then).
Then, on JFK's wedding day to Jackie old man Joe pulled Jack aside and said: "Just because you're married now doesn't mean you can't see other women." (Gee thanks dad). And as we know Jack sure took that advice to heart and followed it -- more than hound-dog Billy-Jeff.
Which brings us to Marlyn Monroe and her Murder. More than likely committed by that other POS, U.S. Attorney(ha!) Robert F Kennedy, who lied about his whereabouts that night -- and who was now getting sloppy 2nds from Marlyn after Jack -- Bobby's Brother-In-Law Peter Lawford, and some Kennedy goons. Carried off by using a Hypo full of a barbiturates (needle mark found on one of her buttocks) and staging a phony 'suicide scene' with an empty pill bottle (She had to be whacked as Jack talked too much).
This 'Kennedy's can get away with anything' attitude even carried over to first cousin Michael Skakel who Murdered teenage neighbor Martha Moxley in 1975 with a Golf Club. He admitted to a friend he met in drug habit (whatta shock!), "We're Kennedys. We can get away with murder."
So there is no 'Curse', it's a family of GD degenerates. Satan even has a special Kennedy Wing in HELL for them!
(sorry but I'm 1/2 Irish and these 'people' are an embarrassment to all Irish and just disgust me!)
I'm 1/3765 Cherokee and I'm going to Harvard.
The family “curse” is not following God’s Commandments, including the greatest of these to love one another. They were given to man for our his good.
Who’s art and why was he hung?
