Jerry Remy is a former Red Sox second baseman who has been a color analyst on team broadcasts on the New England Sports Network since 1988. He has struggled with health problems in recent years.
Jared Remy is a former Red Sox security staffer who was fired by the team in 2008 during a steroid investigation.
The Red Sox did not immediately return a call for comment, but NESN released a two-sentence statement lamenting the tragedy.
“All of us at NESN and the Red Sox, along with Jerry Remy, are filled with grief for everyone involved, and we extend our deepest sympathies to the family of Jennifer Martel,” the statement read.
NESN said later in a separate statement that Dennis Eckersley will fill in for Jerry Remy for games through next weekend. Network spokesman Gary Roy did not respond to calls and an email for clarification.
