BREAKING NEWS: Body Removed From John Henry's Yacht

Roush Fenway co-owner John Henry
WCVB television in Boston is reporting that the body of an unidentified man was removed from a private yacht owned by Boston Red Sox owner and Roush Fenway Racing co-owner John Henry earlier today.  

Henry’s yacht, the Iroquois, was docked in downtown Boston at Rowe’s Wharf near the Boston Harbor Hotel, and a Boston Police spokesperson told WCVB that firefighters and police responded to the yacht today and found a male – believed to be between the ages of 28 and 30 – in cardiac arrest. Attempts to revive him were unsuccessful. The victim’s identity has not been released, and no statement has yet been made by Henry, the Red Sox or Roush Fenway Racing.

UPDATE: 4:19 PM ET: The Boston Red Sox have issued the following statement regarding today's incident:

“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."

    This has as much to do with racing as who a driver is dating.
