The inquest into the death of Jacintha Saldanha, 46, reveals two suicide notes were found at the scene, and another among her personal belongings. A colleague and a security guard found the nurse hanging by a scarf — read on for all the tragic details.
Jacintha Saldanha was found on Dec. 7 hanging by a scarf in her nurses’ quarters at King Edward VII hospital by a security guard and a colleague, according to the inquest into the nurse’s tragic death. She killed allegedly herself just two days after she was involved in a shocking prank call from two Australian radio DJs who wanted information about pregnant Kate Middleton while she was in the hospital.
Officials also found not one, but three suicide notes — two at the scene in her room, and another one later among her personal belongings.
Labour MP Keith Vaz, who is representing Jacintha Saldnha‘s grieving family, is demanding answers from the two DJs.
“There are unexplained circumstances. The family want to know everything. All the facts, fully and clearly,” Keith said.
Jacintha apparently had not told her husband, Benedict Barboza, or children anything about her involvement in the horrible prank phone call that is believed to have instigated her suicide. Her reported suicide note and medical discoveries from the body examination potentially offer the only details that her family hopes to learn about the tragedy in order to get some sort of closure.
“They [the family] were in the dark about the hoax call. They hadn’t watched the news or seen anything about it. They didn’t know they were involved until after Jacintha’s death,” Keith said.
