This story just keeps getting sadder and sadder. When Jacintha Saldanha was found dead last Friday morning of what looked to be a suicide, I wanted to have a little shred of hope that it was a mistake. The senior duty nurse at King Edward VII hospital took that prank phone call at the crack of dawn last Tuesday morning that the whole world quickly learned of. Aussie DJ’s decided to see if they could get a call through to Kate Middleton and the regular secretary wasn’t in yet so it was Jacintha that grabbed the phone and unwittingly patched the call through to Kate’s private nurse.
Audio of that prank call spread like wildfire and Jacintha was absolutely horrified – but depressed enough to choose to take her own life, leaving behind a husband and two children? Yes apparently. According to Radar Online there was indeed a suicide note left by Jacintha. Even more shocking is the fact that until she had taken her own life, none of her family had any idea about the prank call that had embarrassed her!
MP Keith Yaz is the family’s spokesman and it seems that they still aren’t getting straight answers about what happened either! He says,
“There are unexplained circumstances. The family want to know everything. All the facts, fully and clearly. The hospital needs to be more proactive, a full inquiry is needed and the family need to be included in that.”
Can you imagine the shock that this tight knit family must be feeling? I’m sure they really do need to understand what exactly has transpired here in order to make any sense of it all whatsoever! A few sources had questioned if this really was a suicide or perhaps a murder made to look like one. Do you think that Jacintha took her own life or did someone simply take care of a security breech on behalf of the Royals? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
