Death of Nancy Kerrigan’s Father Ruled a Homicide

BOSTON — The family of Olympic skater
Nancy Kerrigan has criticized an autopsy report about her father's death
and insists it was not a homicide.

A Kerrigan family attorney calls the medical
examiner's finding that Daniel Kerrigan died of a heart rhythm problem
after a fight with his son both "premature and inaccurate." The family
says it was disappointed the medical examiner would release a cause of
death "without having all of the relevant facts."

The family says 70-year-old Daniel Kerrigan had
a pre-existing heart condition and they do "not blame anyone" for his
death.

The report released Tuesday found Kerrigan
suffered a damaged windpipe before he died.

The findings could prompt new charges against
Nancy Kerrigan's brother, Mark, who has pleaded not guilty to assault.
