Maeve Kennedy Townsend McKean: Body of RFK’s granddaughter found after canoe accident

The body of Maeve Kennedy Townsend McKean has actually been found by cops 5 days after her canoe obviously capsized on Chesapeake Bay in Maryland.

Ms McKean, 40, the granddaughter of Robert F Kennedy, went missing out on late Thursday afternoon together with her boy, eight-year-old Gideon.

The set headed out into waters near the family’s home in Shady Side, Maryland.

Robert F Kennedy, Maeve McKean’s grandpa, was the bro of former president JFK

An initial examination found that Ms McKean and her boy might have been paddling the canoe out on the bay to obtain a ball and were not able to paddle back to coast.

Maryland cops stated on Monday that her body was found in 25 feet of water about 2.5 miles south of her mom’s house, where the canoe had actually released. Officers utilized air travel and undersea imaging finder technology to discover her body.

Authorities stated they would resume their look for Gideon on Tuesday.

David McKean composed a long Facebook post on Friday in homage to his other half and young boy, calling his other half “the brightest light” he had actually ever understood.

“She was magical – with endless energy that she would put toward inventing games for our children, taking on another project at work or in our community, and spending time with our friends,” he composed.

He explained Gideon as a kid who had deep enthusiasms and invested hours reading, finding out about sports and “trying to decipher the mysteries of the stock market.”

“But he was also incredibly social, athletic, and courageous,” McKean composed. “And he was brave, leading his friends in games, standing up to people who he thought were wrong (including his parents), and relishing opportunities to go on adventures with friends, even those he’d just met.”
