Maeve Kennedy Townsend McKean and her 8-year-old son drifted into the bay after paddling out in a canoe to retrieve a ball. Her body was recovered on Monday evening.
The body of one of two Kennedy family members who went missing last week when their canoe capsized in the Chesapeake Bay was recovered on Monday, the authorities said.
The Maryland Natural Resources Police said on Monday night that it had found the body of Maeve Kennedy Townsend McKean, 40, a granddaughter of Robert F. Kennedy. It said the search would continue for her son Gideon McKean, 8.
Ms. McKeans body was recovered in 25 feet of water about two and a half miles south of her mothers residence in Shady Side, Md., where the two family members set off in their canoe on Thursday, officials said.

Thank you. Was wondering about them. Very sad.
Sorry for their family’s loss but a soccer ball on open, choppy water should be an obvious write-off especially when taking a kid and a canoe (!?) out on it.
Seeing the name again reminded me of KKT’s run for governor. We were visiting MD for a few days and picking up the Baltimore Sun in the morning. Even then I thought I was inured to media bias but their cymbal-clanging, cartwheeling displays of ‘Vote for Kathleen’ in every so-called news article were appalling. It was less a newspaper and more a 100-page campaign flyer.
Even more insane was that we were in town at the time of the Beltway Sniper (Muslims of course) who was still at large. As we refueled our vehicle I wondered aloud ‘Why are we standing out in the open like this?’
Its interesting noting who dies between the Kennedys and Clintons
FTA ‘The cove is protected, with much calmer wind and water than in the greater Chesapeake, he wrote in a Facebook post. They got into a canoe, intending simply to retrieve the ball, and somehow got pushed by wind or tide into the open bay.
According to the Coast Guard, there were two- to three-foot waves and 29-mile-per-hour winds in the bay when the mother and son disappeared off Shady Side, about a 30-minute drive south of Annapolis.
I remember that sniper too...working and living in Kensington, MD at the time. Also when the 9/11 terrorists bombed the Pentagon; we could see the smoke from our office windows.
“If you build a wall i’ll build a Lego ladder” says her sign. Typical Liberal woman - not too smart.
Look it how terrible this writing is. The first 3 sentences all say the same thing in different ways. I guess they found the body on Monday.
no lifejacket for an 8 year old in a canoe on a windy day?.. kind of like piloting a small plane at night without being instrument rated?
...a LEGO ladder?!
...that makes 0 sense to me. I just dont get it
All for a soccer ball.Yikes!
Kennedy clan had a love affair with the water and boats and cars.
Kennedys and water....
If they SURVIVE their inidents on the water, they do well.
I suppose Ted, never in the car with Mary Jo, might be the exception, but the accepted narrative still fits.
Another Democrat got the Darwin Award. Really sad about her 8 year old son.
I’m guessing the directors of the signage intended it to mean she would build a ladder.
“Kennedy clan had a love affair with the water and boats and cars.”
Kennedy clan had a deadly love affair with the water, boats, cars and planes.
....and movie stars with big knockers who thought that the brothers Kennedy would divorce their wives and make her the first lady.
Yet she still lost to a Republican (Bob Ehrlich) in one of the most liberal infested states in the country.
