Homicide Ruling in Death of Kerrigan’s Father


The death of former Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan’s father was ruled a homicide today. The office of the Massachusetts state chief medical examiner said Daniel Kerrigan, 70, died after suffering a heart rhythm disorder after a fight with his son, Mark, on Jan. 24. The district attorney’s office has not yet determined if it will charge Mark - who pleaded not guilty after the incident - with the murder, as the investigation is still in process. Kerrigan’s family was not pleased with the news, calling the ruling “premature and inaccurate” in a statement. [NYT]
