Nancy Kerrigan’s Dad Dies, Brother Arrested

Figure skater Nancy Kerrigan‘s father has passed away, and her brother has been charged with assaulting him.

Daniel Kerrigan, 70, was found dead in the family’s home in Massachusetts over the weekend, according to the Associated Press. His son, Mark, 45, was charged with assault and battery and authorities identified the victim as his father.

According to the report, Mark told officers he struggled with his father after Daniel wouldn’t allow him to use the phone.

Nancy‘s mother Brenda told the Boston Herald that there was nothing suspicious about her husband’s death and that he’d died of a heart attack.

Our thoughts go out to the Kerrigan family…

    This is terrible! What son fights with his 70 year old father over anything, especially a phone! Couldn’t he have used his cell, or gone to a call box somewhere. I can understand a 12 year old but not a 45 year old.

    And how would the mother know anything?? She’s legally blind from what I remember and couldn’t have seen a damn thing.

    I’m very sorry that Miss Kerrigan has to deal with this. It sounds unbelievably tragic. Please please stop domestic abuse and violence. Strangely enough, every family has experienced it. It’s horrific. RIP to Mr. Kerrigan and may justice be served.
