Margot Kidder’s Passing Ruled A Suicide

Margot Kidders Passing Ruled A Suicide

The death back in May of “Superman” and “The Amityville Horror” actress Margot Kidder has now been ruled a suicide according to the Associated Press.

Kidder’s daughter, Maggie McGuane, told the trade on Wednesday that she knew her mother had died by suicide and Park County Coroner Richard Wood has now ruled in a statement saying that it was the result of “a self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose.”

McGuane says she finds relief knowing that the truth about her mother’s death is now finally known to the public and believes it’s important to be open and honest about it so there’s no shame surrounding it.

Kidder was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and eventually suffered a public nervous breakdown in 1996 after facing setbacks in the early 1990s, including a car crash which resulted in her being paralyzed for two years.
