Mary Kennedy: Autopsy Report

The autopsy report shows that Mary Richardson Kennedy, 52, had several drugs in her system during her successful suicide attempt in May of this year.

Kennedy committed suicide at the family's Mount Kisco estate in Westchester County, New York after learning that her three children would be taken away from her. (We're wondering: Why would anyone committ suicide if they knew their kids would be taken away?)

Kennedy also struggled in the past with alcohol addiction and several DUI charges, all of which were reduced or dropped altogether due to her Kennedy prowess.

The drugs found in her system were trazodone, desmethylvenlafaxine and venlafaxine.  The drug trio are said to be commonly, regularly prescribed medications approved by the FDA for treating depression.
