KERRIGAN DEATH RULED A HOMICIDE
The Massachusetts medical examiner has ruled the Jan. 24 death of Daniel Kerrigan—father of Olympic skater Nancy Kerrigan—a homicide. According to autopsy results, Daniel, 70, who had heart disease, died from a heart-rhythm problem after his larynx was damaged in a fight. That could mean new charges against Nancy’s brother Mark Kerrigan, 45 (left), who police said wrapped his hands around his father’s neck in a struggle. Mark has pleaded not guilty to assault and battery charges and is undergoing psychological evaluation. Kerrigan family attorney Tracy Miner called the ruling “premature and inaccurate” and said the family “does not blame anyone” for Daniel Kerrigan’s death.
