Coroner States That Margot Kidder's Death Was An Intentional Overdose

Margot Kidder at Wonder Con Anaheim in 2015

The entertainment site quoted the Park County Coroner as saying that Kidder died from an intentional drug and alcohol overdose.

Margot Kidder, best known for playing Lois Lane in the Superman films in the 1970s and 1980s, died on Sunday, May 13 at the age of 69. She became paranoid and disappeared for four days until she was found in a stranger's backyard and taken to Olive View Medical Center by police.

Margot Kidder's daughter, Maggie McGuane, told the AP it's a relief to finally have the truth come out.

Kidder struggled with mental illness through a good part of her life, a situation that was made worse by a 1990 auto crash that left her in debt and led to her using a wheelchair for nearly two years. At the time Kidder's manager, Camilla Fluxman Pines, said she had died peacefully in her sleep.

Ruby Rose To Play Batwoman For The CW
The DC Comics character is set to make her debut during this year's Arrowverse crossover event, which was announced in May. The CW has found its Batwoman: " Orange Is the New Black " star Ruby Rose will take on the iconic DC Comics role.

In releasing the cause of death her family hoped to erase stigma around suicide and encourage others to seek help. "Knowing how many families in this state go through this, I wish that I could reach out to each one of them".

Joan Kesich, a longtime friend who found Kidder's body, said Kidder was fearless and always spoke the truth, regardless of the consequences.

Kidder was married to novelist Thomas McGuane with whom she had a daughter, Maggie.

Though she worked steadily as an actress over a remarkable 40-year Hollywood career, one role has defined Kidder ever since 1978, when she portrayed "Lois Lane" in the iconic 1978 Richard Donner-directed blockbuster Superman, still considered one of the greatest comic-book movie adaptations ever made. She wants to avoid any "cloud of shame". She continued to act in many movies and TV shows, most recently the 2017 film "The Neighborhood".
