Kidder became a legend after playing Lois Lane alongside Christopher Reeve’s Superman.
Margot Kidder found dead in her home back in May, was reported to have passed in her sleep.
However, Associated Press reveals that Kidder’s death was actually a suicide.
She lived in the Montana town of Livingston, a secluded area near Yellowstone National Park.
A statement released Wednesday (Aug. 8) by Park County coroner Richard Wood said :
“died as a result of a self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose”
Maggie McGuane, Kidder’s daughter by her ex-husband Thomas McGuane, claimed that she knew the moment she saw her mother’s body that it was a suicide.
“It’s a big relief that the truth is out there,”
“It’s important to be open and honest so there’s not a cloud of shame in dealing with this.”
“It’s a very unique sort of grief and pain,”
“Knowing how many families in this state go through this, I wish that I could reach out to each one of them.”
