CBS in Chicago is reporting that Anne Hatch, 27, the daughter of former Minnesota Attorney General Mike Hatch, was found dead Sunday in her condo.
The exact cause of death was not known.
Anne Hatch and her sister Elizabeth were arrested in Chicago in 2004 following a confrontation with a police officer outside a nightclub. The sisters were later acquitted of battery, resisting arrest and criminal damage.
Mike Hatch's lawfirm colleague, Jerry Blackwell, issued this statement from the Hatch family:
Our daughter, Anne, died unexpectedly yesterday in Chicago. This is a sad and painful time for our family. Nothing in life can prepare you for the loss of a child. We are grateful for the outpouring of support and compassion we have received from so many people. We ask that our family's privacy be respected at this very difficult time.
The Chicago Tribune reports that Anne Hatch died by hanging, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office, which ruled her death a suicide.
