The granddaughter of the assassinated politician Robert F. Kennedy died this week at age 22, adding to a series of tragedies the family has endured.
Saoirse Kennedy Hill died Thursday in Hyannis Port, Mass., according to the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office.
The Barnstable Police Department responded to a report of an unresponsive female at the Kennedy compound on Thursday afternoon, the district attorney’s office said in a statement. Authorities later identified the woman as Hill.
She was taken from the storied waterfront property to Cape Cod Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
