In a statement released to People, Maryland Natural Resources Police stated that the body was discovered in 25 feet of water close to her mother, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend’s waterfront home.

Before her death, Maeve, who was the grandniece of former U.S President John F. Kennedy, most recently worked as the executive director of Georgetown’s Global Health Initiative.

Maeve and her family retired to her mother’s waterfront property as a way to isolate during the ongoing the coronavirus pandemic.

Maeve’s husband, David McKean, recalled to The Washington Post that Maeve and their 8-year-old son, Gideon Joseph Kennedy McKean, went missing after they “popped into a canoe” to recover a ball that fell into the water.

At the time, David said that the duo got farther out than they could handle and eventually couldn’t make it back to shore.

Maryland authorities later made it known that their boat seemed to have been “overtaken by the strong winds” that blew on the day of the unfortunate incident. To mourn the loss, David took to Facebook to pay tribute to his wife and their son, USA Today reported

According to his Facebook post, the lawyer explained that he and Maeve hoped that the home on the Chesapeake Bay home would offer their three children more space to play and “run around.”

Before her death, Maeve, who was the grandniece of former U.S President John F. Kennedy, most recently worked as the executive director of Georgetown’s Global Health Initiative, which is a “university-wide platform for supporting research, teaching, and service in global health.”

According to People, the late mother-of-three got both her law degree and a master’s degree in international negotiations and conflict resolution in 2009. 

During her post-college years, Maeve also did her bit when she not only served in the Peace Corps but also traveled to Mozambique.

People also pointed out that Maeve previously worked in the State Department’s global AIDS program under the administration of the former United States President, Barack Obama.
