Body of Robert F. Kennedy’s great-grandson ‘Gideon McKean’ has been recovered


Following the discovery of the body of Maeve Kennedy Townsend McKean, the body body of her 8-year-old son ‘Gideon’ has also been recovered.

The two went missing while canoeing in Maryland last Thursday.

The remains of Gideon were discovered approximately 600 metres away from where his mother’s body was found.

They had gotten into the canoe to retrieve a ball but were pulled into the Chesapeake Bay.

Her husband ‘David McKean’ stated that “About 30 minutes later they were spotted by an onlooker from land, who saw them far out from shore, and called the police. After that last sighting, they were not seen again,”.
