Robert F. Kennedy Granddaughter’s OD Death: Toxicology Testing Underway

Saoirse Kennedy Hill, 22, allegedly overdosed at family’s Massachusetts compound.

A toxicology report is underway to determine the exact cause of death for Robert F. Kennedy’s granddaughter, RadarOnline.com has learned.

According to the Cape & Islands District Attorney’s Office in Barnstable, Mass., an autopsy was completed on Friday, Aug. 2, one day after Saoirse Kennedy Hill, 22, was found dead at the family’s Hyannis Port compound.

A press release obtained by Radar confirmed that police responded to the family’s mansion at approximately 3 p.m., where Courtney Kennedy’s daughter was found “unresponsive.”

The 22-year-old was then transported to Cape Cod Hospital where she was pronounced deceased.

According to the Medical Examiner’s Office, an autopsy completed Friday revealed “no trauma inconsistent with lifesaving measures.”

Saoirse’s cause and manner of death are now “pending the toxicology report,” the release furthered.

The Barnstable Police and State Police detectives are still investigating the Kennedy grandchild’s sudden death.

The Kennedys released a statement on Thursday following the tragic news.

“Our hearts are shattered by the loss of our beloved Saoirse,” the family stated. “Her life was filled with hope, promise and love.”

As Radar readers know, Hill was a student at Boston College. She also attended Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts, where she opened up about her mental health struggles in a heartbreaking 2016 essay for the school’s publication.
