The wife of Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson was found dead Monday in what’s being described as a “tragic accident.”
Dickinson — who separated from Paddy Bowden in 2018 after 29 years of marriage — discovered his estranged wife’s body when he stopped by the home they used to share in Chiswick, West London, according to The Sun. He called for help, but EMTs were not able to revive her. Bowden was pronounced dead at the scene, records indicate.
“This is a terrible tragedy which appears to be a tragic accident,” Dickinson, 61, said in a statement. “Our children Austin, Griffin and Kia and I are devastated. Out of respect for Paddy we won’t be making any further comment at this hugely difficult and painful time for our family.”
Does the fact that Dickinson and Bowden weren’t divorced after two years apart indicate one of them was still holding onto hope?
