I don’t know if you’ve been following the news about Robert Kennedy‘s granddaughter Maeve McKean and her 8-year-old son Gideon, but to recap: The two were both last seen on last Friday afternoon, playing kickball on the property of McKean’s mother, former Maryland Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend. Someone accidentally kicked the ball into the water. Maeve and her son hopped into a canoe to get it, and “somehow got pushed by wind or tide into the open bay.” The canoe was found overturned on Friday around 7PM with neither one in it.
Now, after a four day search, the submerged body of Maeve McKean has been recovered. Gideon McKean, however, is still missing, however. The search for him will resume today.
This is just the latest tragedy that has befallen the “cursed” Kennedy family over the last 50 years. RIP Maeve and little Gideon.
