The McCartney family spokesman, Geoff Baker, all but confirmed Thursday the PEOPLE Magazine story that Linda McCartney, the 56-year-old wife of former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney, died at the family ranch in Tucson, AZ, and not in Santa Barbara, CA, as reporters initially had been led to believe. Baker said he misled reporters to protect Sir Paul and the couple's four children. "If I had said where she died, [the ranch] would have been overrun straight away, and they needed time, because of their grief," he said. "Morally, I have done nothing wrong, and legally I have done nothing wrong," Baker said. "I am just trying to keep this family together."
