    MA - Daniel Kerrigan, 70, dies after altercation, Stoneham, 24 Jan 2010

    Video says he was arrested for assault and that their father died as a result. I would assume that would lead to murder charges.

    Police are investigating the sudden death of former Olympic skater Nancy Kerrigan's father.

    The ice-skating star arrived at her parents' Stoneham home late Sunday morning, making no comment.

    Police said earlier, around 1:30 a.m. Sunday morning, a call for help came from the Kerrigan house at 7 Cedar Ave.

    The Middlesex County district attorney and Stoneham Police Chief Richard Bongiorno said a man in his 70s "in need of medical assistance" was taken from the residence to Winchester Hospital, where he later died.

    Sounds like mom is in major denial over what happened to her husband. An enabler maybe. More and a cute picture of Nancy and her father at the below link.

    (snip)
    Kerrigan said there is nothing suspicious about her husband’s death.
    “My God. He had a heart attack,” she said. “That’s what it was.”
    She declined further comment.

    Mark Kerrigan, the son of the deceased, is in police custody.
    "He (Mark Kerrigan) stated that he wanted to use the phone and his father would not let him,'' according to a Stoneham police report filed in court. "He said that he struggled with his father and put his hands around his father neck and his father fell to the floor. He said that his father was faking it.''

    45, living at home, fighting with dad over the phone at 1:30 am. Dad is 70 years old.

    typical adult child who behaves badly, and the whole family suffers for it.

    So, who was it that dad didn't want son to call, porn, gambling? pure speculation on my part.

    Breaking dad's heart, dad trying to save son, while son strangles dad, and knocks him in the head with the phone? Dad dies of a broken heart. and at the hands of a violent, impulsive son. more speculation on my part.

    "When will they ever learn, when will they everrr learn."

    From a song I learned as a child.

    I think it's horrible when adult children don't have respect enough to move out to screw their lives up.

    Prayers for the family. Please do yourselves a favor and let him be held accountable for his actions. It may be the best thing you could do for him. moo

    Wow. That's gotta s*ck. How do you deal with something like that as a sibling?

    BTW I never knew there was a dad. It was always the mother they zoomed in on as the daughter skated. Always having to see the mom.

    Perhaps adult brother will use this as a defense/excuse/reason? I beat my dad for a phone because my sister got all the attention. Poor man lives 70 years and then dies like that.

    I sure hope the DA ups the charges to murder.

    Even if someone has a heart attack and dies during being attacked the perpetrator can be charged in their death.

    So sad that so many elderly people are abused by their own families.

    With all due respect, isn't Mrs. Kerrigan legally blind? If so, how can she realistically give an accurate account of the incident?

    What a darn shame when and adult child takes advantage and abuses their elderly parents!

    Prayers for the family.

    Wow, this is so sad. It was my senoir year in high school, when the whack on the knee to place. I was a big fan of figure skating then and felt so bad for Nancy. I still remember watching the news and seeing her father carrying her after the attack took place. That was before all of her public miss steps following the olympics. I pray for Nancy and her family. This is heartbreaking.

    Unhappy

    My heart goes out to Nancy and her mother. Nancy's been through so much in her life! Being attacked right before the Olympics, losing out on the Gold which she deserved, and now her brother kills her father, poor woman...
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.
