MICHAEL KENNEDY Before Kennedy’s life came to an abrupt end in a skiing accident, he was almost charged with statutory rape after his wife found him and the 14-year-old babysitter in bed together. The babysitter’s family chose not to file charges.
The son of the late Robert Kennedy, Michael Kennedy didn't put his mark on history as did so many other members of his famous clan. However, his death made headlines across the country and the world. He died on the slopes of Aspen, with numerous reports suggesting that he and other relatives were playing football on skis when he smacked into a tree and sustained fatal injuries.
