The estranged wife of lawyer and environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has been found dead.

An attorney says police discovered the body of 52-year-old Mary Kennedy in her home in Bedford, north of New York City. Police have released no other details.

Mary Kennedy was Kennedy's second wife. The two filed for divorce in 2010 after 16 years of marriage.

Robert Kennedy is an author of several books and one of the United States' top environmental lawyers.

He is the son of Senator Robert Kennedy, who was assassinated in June 1968 while seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, and the nephew of President John F. Kennedy, who was assassinated in November 1963.
