Tragic news.

The daughter or Jane Birkin and John Barry died in Paris yesterday at the age of 46.

here's a link to a french article, I will try to provide additional info in english soon

edit : police suspects a suicide. How sad and tragic. Kate Barry is survived by his 26 year old son Roman. She was born april 8, 1967. John Barry and Jane Birkin divorced the same year.

She was a very talented photographer.

My French is rusty, but it appears she fell from her fourth floor apartment. How horrible!

Google translate works well,

from ParisMatch
"The tragedy. Daughter of actress and singer Jane Birkin and the great composer John Barry, who died, to whom we owe the James Bond theme, Kate Barry died tonight falling from his apartment on the fourth floor, in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. Aged 46, she was a recognized figure in photography and worked for many publications including Paris Match."

Yeah, people rarely 'fall' from the fourth floor of anything without jumping or being pushed, unless the rail was broken or something like that.

Here's the BBC report

When I first heard the news, it was that she took her own life, but clearly reports are being less specific than that now, pending the outcome of the police investigation.

All I can say that can be positive in a tragic situation like this is to hope she is with her father now in a happier place where there is a beauty as beautiful as his music was.

Thank God her father never lived to bury his daughter.
