Mary Kennedy's pain and anguish brought her to a point where she saw no other way but to take her own life by hanging herself at her family home in New York. Now that the death scene investigation leaves no doubt that this was a suicide, the details of her last moments get revealed.
The housekeeper called Robert Kennedy when she couldn't find Mary at home, although her purse and keys were there. Robert, who lives in neighboring Bedford, came over to the house and called Mary's AA group to see if she was there with them.
When he found out she wasn't there, Robert and the housekeeper began looking through all the buildings on the massive upstate New York estate. Robert looked through the carriage house, while the housekeeper checked the barn, where Mary's body was found.
According to Fox and Friends live on Friday morning the police report that Mary Kennedy went into the family barn and stacked "animal traps" on top of one another. She climbed on top of them, put the rope around her neck then kicked over the traps.
One of the saddest parts of this scenario is that Mary was in great mental pain and alone. She appeared very serious about her suicide with leaving very little chance of a rescue, so you know this wasn't just a cry for help, she wanted to die. Going out to the barn and dying in that cold lonely surrounding makes you realize that fame and money don't offer everything in life.
It was Robert Kennedy who called the police and reported finding his estranged wife's body. According to the Daily Beast, Robert Kennedy said about his late wife, "A lot of times, I don't know how she made it through the day." He continued with, "She was in a lot of agony for a lot of her life."
Kerry Kennedy, Robert's sister and one of Mary's closest friends, said that her friend and sister-in-law "fought mightily to overcome the disease" [depression]. It seems that everyone close to Mary knew how depression would often take over her life.
