WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) -- Robert F. Kennedy Jr. told a detective that on the day before his wife hanged herself, she called him to say "everything was her fault."
"She told me that she was sorry for everything. ... She said that I was right about everything," Kennedy said in a statement that was part of a police file released Wednesday.
Kennedy's wife, Mary Richardson Kennedy, hanged herself May 16 in a garage on their Bedford estate. The statement from her husband - son of Sen. Robert Kennedy and nephew of President John Kennedy - was given the next day, the documents show.
Much of the file was blacked out before being released, and it was not clear what Mary Kennedy was referring to by "everything."
When she died, the Kennedys were in the midst of a divorce and custody battle. They have four children.
An autopsy report showed Mary Kennedy had antidepressants in her system.
Her death sparked a battle between Kennedy and his wife's siblings, who tried to take control of her remains and held their own memorial service. Kerry Lawrence, an attorney for the siblings, was on vacation Wednesday and could not be reached for...

There was one single fault she made... she married a Kennedy.
“She said that I was right about everything,” Kennedy said.
Typical of the clan. A Kennedy is always right. A Kennedy is a Kennedy....rotten b@stards!
And what proof does he have that she actually said this?
I'm skeptical that's a phrase that has ever been uttered by a wife about her husband over the entire History of Man.
she called him to say "everything was her fault."
O really? That's sure sounds like something a terrorized, hopeless, and completely demoralized vacant-shell-of-her-former-self victim of spousal abuse would think.
He probably made it up though to make himself look good. FAIL.
Gosh, I say that kind of thing all the time, along with agreeing that everything is my fault. However, I don't plan to hang myself ... maybe I'll just take the baby and the credit card and head for the airport. Nyah nyah nyah, I speak Spanish and you don't!
Poor lady. I saw at Walmart the other day that Taylor Swift is seeing a Kennedy. I asked my son where he placed her in the Dead Pool, but he didn't get it.
What a creep.
I hear that Marilyn Monroe and Mary Jo Kopechne made very similar calls to Kennedys just before they died.
This MAY be what he heard...but if she said anything close it was just that she was so beaten down by him that she couldn’t think straight. What a $rick.
Boats, planes, trains, and automobiles.......no it's not a book; it's a list of transportation crashed by Kennedys.
>>>I’m skeptical that’s a phrase that has ever been uttered by a wife about her husband over the entire History of Man. “
Add in “a wife in the middle of a divorce” and the odds boggle the mind..
If you’re a Kennedy, you’re always right about everything.
Psychopathy means never having to say you’re sorry.
My eyes are watering from laughing.......you nailed it!
Been there, “confessed” that.
Still not completely recovered.
Sadly, you’re probably right.
Back then, the *only* thing that kept me defiantly sucking air was the worry about what would happen to my dogs if I were gone.
I sure as hell didn’t want *him* to get hold of them so I kept fighting to stay alive.
So far, so good.
FWIW, to hear the tales he tells when he thinks I won’t hear about it, he’s a saint and I “deserved” every beating.
“And she said she was going to build a statue of me and name it dedicated faithful husband. She said she would start it the next morning.”
These toxic, vile personalities have a certain signature, don’t they. The costs of being able to read the signatures can run pretty high, as I don’t need to explain to you. You understand.
This heinous goon sure has a bizarre need to “quote” the deceased woman [who can’t refute his statements]. What did he do and say to her (and about her) that wasn’t public? Shudder.
The Kennedys pride themselves on their manufactured do-gooder public service persona, but up close and personal they destroy people.
God is not mocked.
“Kennedy’s wife, Mary Richardson Kennedy, hanged herself May 16 in a garage on their Bedford estate.”
Oh wow. I was in that very garage about 20 years ago when I read meters for the local utility. RFK came to the door and let me in there to the meter. I was subbing for another reader and never went back there again.
What a waste.
Even for a Rat, this stinkingly obvious lie is so over-the-top ugly I barely have words to comment.
What an absolute BASTARD this guy is!
Did you think they could stand to shoot a few more of them?
My grandfather once told me that nothing good has ever come out of Joe Kennedy.
Who would risk an autopsy?
Hearing that lie come out of that losers mouth in that awful sounding voice he has would make me want to arrest him right there if I were a Police Officer taking his statement. Some one that would say that is obviously guilty of driving the poor woman to suicide, if that’s what it was. So now his kids can grow up knowing dad said “mom said everything was her fault, not dads before killing herself”. Disgusting.
self-serving prick...always easy to put words in the dead woman’s mouth
Only a certain kind of woman marries a Kennedy. Just like only a certain kind of woman marries a Bill Clinton or a John Edwards. No sympathy.
just when I thought this jerk couldn’t sink any lower.....
The strangest case of Kennedy cognitive dissonance was Ted's campaigning for the Won... as a champion of "change"! I mean WTH? Ted was the quintessential poster punk for DC's deep-rooted culture of corruption and legislative abuse and depravity.
I suppose as long as fools will believe the lies, lies are the means to the end. After all, "That which advances our agenda today" is the working definition of truth for totalitarians and their fellow believers. Thus as far as RFK Jr. is concerned, he's telling the truth.
You and your grandfather might think differently if you read the bio on Joe Kennedy’s eldest son, Joseph P. Kennedy, II. He served in the Navy during WWII and flew on several dangerous missions in Europe and, sadly, he was killed when his plane exploded over the Bay of Bengal. His remains were never found.
The police need to do some serious detective work on this case. The more I read about it the more suspicious I get. I seriously hope they are investigating RFK’s whereabouts on that day. I would not be surprised if it turns out he had something to do with her death. He had a motive-—he didn’t want to lose his money and wanted the house back for himself. Plus, it is rare for a woman to hang herself. Why would she suffer when she had access to pills to put her to sleep? Plus, she was a mother to young children. Most women wouldn’t want to leave them motherless.
The Kennedys have always made my skin crawl.
*All* of them.
No suicide note, just his recollections. All geared to clearing him of any responsibility and paving the way for him or other members of this crime family to scam the public again.
What a low life POS!
Taylor Swift is out on dates with Bobby Jr’s son- and was seen with him in clubs just days after his mother hanged herself.
Another generation of noble Kennedy men in the making!
Marilyn actually did call Bobby the night she died, or was murdered.
Mary Jo was left to drown by Teddy. No time for phone calls there.
Why on earth would any woman go anywhere near these Kennedy men? The odds of surviving are not all that good.
Psycopathology, sociopath, Kennedy.
RFJ Jr is a convicted felon, heroin addict. These people are capable of anything, and get away with everything!
Remember Kennedy cousins William Kennedy Smith, rapist, and Michael Skakel, murderer?
*sad head shake*
You’d think an alarm or two would go off, but no ...
If I had uttered those words to a Kennedy, I, too, would have quickly followed up with my suicide.
Think Church Lady voice: “Well, that’s convenient.”
"I was out on the beach with Cheryl Hines -- don't know anything about any suicide...."

agreed! ... no suicide note.
and “An autopsy report showed Mary Kennedy had antidepressants in her system.”
...if she had STOPPED taking them, i might believe
she killed herself.
as it is, i don’t think there is ANY way,
that a Catholic mother with a young child,
hanged herself in a barn,
after telling her unfaithful husband
he was correct and wonderful...
If she hung herself in the House, it would have hurt the Property Value.
Teddy would have died in Jail.
What with him being a Kennedy and all, we should believe him because...???
Marys big mistake was killing herself. She should have lived and made it her goal to make this evil mans life miserable till the day he dropped dead.
And they believed him?
