A crew member apparently committed suicide on John Henry’s yacht on Monday afternoon. The Boston Red Sox sent out this statement about the incident that took place on the team owner’s luxury boat:
“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.”
Henry’s yacht, Iroquois, is docked at Rowes Wharf behind the Boston Harbor Hotel. The man who committed suicide reportedly is between 28-30 years old.
Henry (pictured) has owned the Red Sox since 2002. He is the chairman of a hedge fund he founded in 1981, and he bought the 165-foot yacht in 1998. He reportedly listed it for sale for $28 million two years ago.Google+
