Nancy Kerrigan's Father's Death is Ruled a Homicide

Nancy-Kerrigan We already knew Nancy's brother had been arrested for assaulting Nancy's father, and that Nancy's father had died as a result of that assault, but know his death has been ruled a homicide.  I would expect those charges to be amened real soon.  The District Attorney's statement is after the jump.

The statement from the office of District Attorney Gerry Leone said, in part: "The Medical Examiner determined that the cause of death was cardiac dysrhytmia following a physical altercation with neck compression causing injury to the neck in the form of a cartilage fracture to the larynx area, in a person with hypertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular heart disease...The corresponding manner of death has been ruled a homicide....As a result of these conclusions of the Medical Examiner, the investigation into Daniel Kerrigan's death, and whether any charges in connection with his death are appropriate, remains ongoing."

Nancy

Nancy's family continue to stand with her brother.  They criticized the medical examiners report and do not believe there was any foul play.  Kerrigan's family issued a statement through their attorney, Tracey Miner, calling the findings both "premature and inaccurate."   "The Kerrigan family is extremely disappointed that the medical examiner would release a cause of death without having all of the relevant facts," Miner said in the statement.  "The Kerrigan family does not blame anyone for the unfortunate death of Dan Kerrigan, who had a pre-existing heart condition."

Washington "Hanging Judge" Cube

You already know where I stand on this from past discussions. It's also not the first time either one of us has seen a family surround and protect the murderer...under much worse circumstances.

I do wish the family would be more of the mindset "You killed my husband and our father and grandfather. A man that bailed you out time and time again. You're a screw-up. Now pay for your messes."

chatty cricket

hang on-

"a physical altercation with neck compression causing injury to the neck in the form of a cartilage fracture to the larynx area"

doesn't that sound like he choked his father? Unless the other relevant facts include an admission from someone else that THEY choked the father and the brother stormed out of the room after the argument and wasn't even present.....then I don't know, Kerrigans.
