An inquest has heard that Jean Kent may have died in a fall at her Suffolk home.
Her executor, film and theatre critic Michael Thornton, said he was pleased rumours about suspicious circumstances surrounding her death had now been dismissed.
The coroner's findings refute the wilder stories that were in circulation at the time of Jean's death, to the effect that intruders might have broken into her house and attacked her.
One report even used the word, 'murdered'. As the police have established, that certainly did not happen.
At the time that her housekeeper found her, the front door of the house was still locked, and the alarm system was in operation."
