On Thursday, paramedics were called to the Kennedy compound. The family later revealed that Robert F. Kennedy’s granddaughter had passed away.


Saoirse Kennedy Hill, 22, is the granddaughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy was said to have died of an apparent overdose at the Kennedy compound in Hyannisport, Mass. In a statement, her family confirmed the news.

They said: “Our hearts are shattered by the loss of our beloved Saoirse.” The Kennedy Hill family added: “Her life was filled with hope, promise and love. . . . We will love her and miss her forever.”



Kennedy Hill passed away at the home of her grandmother, Ethel Kennedy, 91 - Robert’s widow. Hyannis Fire Lieutenant David Webb revealed that at around 2:31 p.m. they received a call for assistance at 28 Marchant Avenue.

Webb also shared that an individual was transported to Cape Cod Hospital but declined to provide further information. A spokeswoman for the Cape & Islands district attorney’s office said Barnstable police responded to a home on Marchant Avenue in Hyannis Port.


The woman stated that the call was “for a reported unattended death.” The Barnstable police and State Police detectives are investigating the incident.


Kennedy Hill’s family described her as someone who cared “deeply about friends and family, especially her mother Courtney, her father Paul, her stepmother Stephanie, and her grandmother, Ethel.”


Brian O'Connor, a spokesman for Kennedy Hill’s uncle Robert F. Kennedy Jr., said Ethel had this to say about her death: “The world is a little less beautiful today.” The young woman was a student at Boston College with the hopes of graduating in 2020.


She was listed in Deerfield Academy’s class of 2016. There she wrote about dealing with depression in the school’s student newspaper in February 2016.


In the piece, she confessed that she’d experienced a lot of “stigma” around mental health issues on the campus. At the time, she pleaded with fellow students to end the stigma.

In 1974, her father, Paul Michael Hill, was one of four people who were falsely convicted in the Irish Republican Army bombings of two pubs. Her mother was Courtney, the fifth child of the late New York senator and Ethel.



There’s a fabled “Kennedy curse” in the famous family relating to a series of deaths and calamities involving its members. To name a few incidents: in 1963, President Kennedy was assassinated and nearly five years later Robert was also killed.

One of Robert and Ethel’s 11 children, David, died of a drug overdose in Florida In 1984. In 1997, another son, Michael, was killed in a skiing accident in Aspen, Colo.

John F. Kennedy Jr., son of the late president and his wife, Jacqueline, was killed along with his wife and sister-in-law in July 1999. The plane he was piloting crashed off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard.
