Margot Kidder's Death Ruled Suicidal Overdose

Margot Kidder's Death Ruled Suicidal Overdose

The official cause of death was self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose, the coroner ruled in a press release.

Kidder was found dead at her home in Livingston, Montana, on May 13 at the age of 69.

Kidder's daughter said she knew her mother died by suicide the moment authorities took her to Kidder's home. The star is survived by her 41-year-old daughter Maggie, whom she had with her first husband. McGuane, an only child, noted that Montana has one of the highest suicide rates, adding, "It's important to be open and honest so there's not a cloud of shame in dealing with this".

Kidder suffered from bipolar disorder, according to People Magazine, which often caused episodes of erratic behavior that landed her in the tabloids with some frequency.

Palestinian sources said a drone was used by the army but that no one was wounded in the attack . As part of negotiations, several exiled Hamas leaders are in Gaza for consultations.

She later appeared in small films and television shows until 2017, including R.L. Stine's the Haunting Hour. At the time Kidder's manager, Camilla Fluxman Pines, said she had died peacefully in her sleep. Now she feels that the news being out is a big relief to her, The Chicago Sun Times reported. I want what I know about her to be out there because it was glorious. She went on to marry actor John Heard in 1979 only to divorce six days later. In one of her final interviews, with the pop culture site Hey U Guys in 2016, Kidder said that she never anticipated the success of the Superman film and was unprepared for the instant worldwide stardom that it brought to her. Maggie has worked as a photographer, a writer, and occasionally modeled.

She also appeared in 1978's The Amityville Horror.

Both Kidder and co-star Christopher Reeve, who played Superman, were relative unknowns when they got their leading parts, and neither saw many major roles afterwards.
