Actress Margot Kidder’s death has sadly been ruled as a suicide.
Coroner Richard Wood confirmed that Kidder died “as a result of a self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose.”
Her daughter, Maggie McGuane, said “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.”
She continued, “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.”
Kidder, 69, was found by a friend in her Montana home on May 13th.
She had long been open about drug and alcohol addictions, which she said partially triggered her very public breakdown in 1996, and her bipolar diagnosis.
Kidder is best remembered for playing Lois Lane opposite Christopher Reeve in the Superman films.
