Nancy Kerrigan's Father's Death Ruled Homicide
The Middlesex, Mass. D.A.’s office released a statement today saying, “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” (via People).
Early reports indicated that Daniel, 70, and his son, Mark, 45, had an altercation over using the phone. Mark was charged with assault and battery in late January.
Nancy‘s mother, Brenda, said last month that her husband died of a heart attack and that she didn’t think anything suspicious had happened.
Our deepest condolences go out to Nancy and her loved ones.
