Margot Kidder's Death Ruled Suicidal Overdose

Adjust Comment Print

In a joint statement, Kidder's family and the Park County Coroner's Office urged: '...those suffering from mental illnesses, addiction and/or suicidal thoughts to seek appropriate counselling and treatment'.

Kidder was found May 13 in her home in the U.S. state of Montana.

Kidder's daughter, Maggie McGuane, said she knew that her mother had taken her own life.

McGuane says she believes it's important to be open and honest about the suicide so there's no cloud of shame. The coroner didn't reveal precisely what drugs she had taken.

Kidder was famously outspoken and candid about mental illness and her struggles with bipolar disorder after making headlines in 1996 when she disappeared for four days and was found in a backyard in Glendale, California. She went on to appear in small films and television shows until 2017, including an appearance on R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour. A cause of death was not originally reported, but Kidder's manager, Camilla Fluxman Pines, said at the time that she had passed away peacefully in her sleep. 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. I want what I know about her to be out there because it was glorious. You can listen to the interview below. Additionally, ambulances were called to Kidder's home five times in seven months, including at the time of her death. Maggie was born on October 28, 1976.

"It's a very unique sort of grief and pain", McGuane said.

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.
