Mary Kennedy’s Grave Moved

Mary Richardson Kennedy’s grave was moved 700 feet away earlier this month, the superintendent of the St. Francis Xavier Cemetery near Hyannisport confirmed to the Associated Press on Saturday. Kennedy, who died in May after hanging herself, was first buried on May 19 in a part of the cemetery near Eunice Kennedy Shriver and Sargent Shriver. But Frank Maki, the cemetery’s superintendent, said Kennedy’s body has been exhumed and reburied about 700 feet away. Sources told the Associated Press that Kennedy’s estranged husband, Robert Kennedy Jr., wanted her to be buried on a hilltop surrounded by empty plots he plans on buying.
