I changed the last sentence in the article from "Howard died on July 12, 2002 at his Russian dacha supposedly from a broken neck after falling on stairs" to "Howard died on July 12, 2002 at his Russian dacha, reportedly from a broken neck after a fall in his home." I don't personally like the use of dacha along with home, but just because he died in the dacha doesn't mean he fell in it, so I used home anyway for factual purposes. As for the other reasons...
The sources provided for the sentence never even mention stairs, only that he was in his home when he fell. If there are other sources which mention stairs, then they should be included before it is written in the article.
"Supposedly" is not an encyclopedic fact. "Reportedly" is because it has been reported by authorities that he died of a broken neck.
