Saoirse Roisin Kennedy-Hill has been identified as the young woman who died of a possible drug overdose at the Kennedy Compound on Cape Cod. She was 22 years old.
‘Our hearts are shattered by the loss of our beloved Saoirse,’ the Kennedy family said in a statement. ‘Her life was filled with hope, promise and love.’
The statement quoted Saoirse’s grandmother, Ethel Kennedy, as saying: ‘The world is a little less beautiful today.’
Paramedics responding to a call of a suspected overdose just after 2.30pm Thursday arrived at the scene and found the patient in cardiac arrest.
The woman was transported to Cape Cod Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, according to local media.
Barnstable police are now investigating.
