The Maui News - - NEWS -

LIV­INGSTON, Mont. — The fam­ily of Margot Kid­der says they were shaken by the “Su­per­man” ac­tress’ death on Mother’s Day.

Chad Franscoviak, who is mar­ried to Kid­der’s only child, 41-year-old Mag­gie McGuane, gave the fam­ily’s first pub­lic state­ment Thurs­day.

He says author­i­ties took McGuane into the home in Liv­ingston, Mont., where her mother had just died Sun­day. The state­ment says it was dif­fi­cult for McGuane, es­pe­cially on Mother’s Day.

Franscoviak says McGuane isn’t speak­ing out un­til a coroner re­leases au­topsy find­ings and is ask­ing for pri­vacy.

Police say they found the 69-year-old Kid­der dead in the home but haven’t de­ter­mined a cause.

The foun­da­tion of the late Christopher Reeve, on-screen Su­per­man to Kid­der’s Lois Lane, is among many pay­ing trib­ute to Kid­der on Twit­ter, say­ing “Fly high, our friend, shine bright.”
