‘Superman’ Actress Margot Kidder’s Cause of Death Released

‘Superman’ Actress Margot Kidder’s Cause of Death Released

McGuane stated she knew her mother's death was a suicide when taken to the home.

In a statement provided to The Associated Press Wednesday, Coroner Richard Wood said Kidder's death was "a result of a self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose".

Regarding her family life, Kidder got married three different times throughout her life and has one daughter, Maggie McGuane. She believes it is important to be open and honest about suicide and not hide it.

Reportedly, Margot had fought with mental health struggles for years, notably, bipolar disorder, and she was 69-years-old when she died in the state of Montana. Between August 2016 and her death in May, authorities were called to her house 40 times on reports of people trespassing, theft and other disturbances, according to police logs released to the AP under a public-records request.




At the time, Kidder's manager, Camilla Fluxman Pines, said Kidder died peacefully in her sleep. Kidder also appeared on the Smallville TV series, and she most recently appeared on The Neighborhood as Maggie. She wants to avoid any "cloud of shame". She went on to marry actor John Heard in 1979 only to divorce six days later. You can listen to the interview below.

Joan Kesich, a longtime friend who found Kidder's body, said Kidder was fearless and always spoke the truth, regardless of the consequences. But on Wednesday the Park County Coroner's Office in Montana, where she lived, revealed that the cause was suicide.

She says it's a unique sort of grief and pain and that she would like to reach out to every family who is suffering through a loss by suicide.
