Police Investigate Possible Suicide on Red Sox Owner’s Yacht
BOSTON (WGGB/AP) — Boston police are investigating what appears to be a suicide on Red Sox owner John Henry’s yacht.
Police spokeswoman Cheryl Fiandaca says that the victim is a man 28 to 30 years old.
She says that when firefighters and police arrived at the yacht Monday, they found the man in cardiac arrest. She says attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.
It wasn’t clear who called authorities. Police did not release the man’s identity.
Fiandaca says the man may have been working on the yacht. It was docked at Rowes Wharf near the city’s financial district.
In a statement released Monday afternoon to WBZ-TV, the Red Sox say, “Earlier today, a crew member on the vessel, M/Y Iroquois, apparently took his life aboard the vessel docked at 30 Rowes Wharf. Mr. Henry and the members of the Boston Red Sox are saddened by the news and send deepest condolences to his family.”
The Red Sox released a statement late Monday afternoon
