Margot Kidder’s Death Ruled a Suicide

Margot Kidder's Death Ruled Suicidal Overdose

A joint statement from the coroner's office and her family urged "those suffering from mental illnesses, addiction and/or suicidal thoughts to seek appropriate counselling and treatment".

Kidder struggled with mental illness through a good part of her life, a situation that was made worse by a 1990 vehicle crash that left her in debt and led to her using a wheelchair for nearly two years.

Initial reports of Kidder's death in May said that she died in her sleep of natural causes, as The Inquisitr reported.

Kidder was working until just prior to her death.

She was found dead at her home in Livingston, Montana, on May 13.

Park County Coroner Richard Wood said in a statement that Margot Kidder died "as a result of a self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose", The Chicago Sun Times reported.


"It's a big relief that the truth is out there", she told the AP.

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

Kidder is best known for playing intrepid reporter Lois Lane opposite the late Christopher Reeve in 1978's Superman.

"In her last months, she was herself - same kind of love, same kind of energy", Kesich said. She wants to avoid any "cloud of shame".

"The reality of my life has been grand and wonderful, punctuated by these odd blips and burps of madness", she said.

Her most-publicized mental health episode came in 1996 when she disappeared for four days, according to Toronto's Globe and Mail newspaper, living among the homeless on the streets of Los Angeles until she was found by a homeowner in the Los Angeles suburb of Glendale, who found the celebrity actress cowering in her backyard. She went on to appear in small films and television shows until 2017, including an appearance on R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour.
