British photographer Kate Barry, daughter of singer-actress Jane Birkin, died Wednesday after falling from the fourth floor of her Paris apartment building, informed sources said, confirming a media report.

According to a source, Barry, 46, fell from her home in a chic area of the French capital. She apparently fell from a window.

Barry lived alone in the apartment that was locked from the inside. Anti-depressants were found in her home, according to the source.

Barry was the daughter of British-born Birkin and British composer John Barry, famous for writing James Bond movie themes, who died in 2011.
