Here is some shit you really couldn’t make up.
You may remember the nurse Jacintha Saldanha who supposedly killed herself over the prank radio call from an Australian radio station.
Despite not being pranked herself, she unfathomably put the call through to Kate Gold Digger Smiths hospital room. Gold Digger Smith was in hospital after getting a severe case of feeling a bit under the weather.
You may also remember that a week or so after Jacintha’s
murder suicide the authorities came up with the idea of a suicide note. They then decided that the one note didn’t explain everything properly and as such, promptly found two more… Like ya do.
The Sunday Times has now revealed that in one of the notes – that nobody including Jacinthas husband was allowed to see – the nurse blames the two deejays responsible:
“Please accept my apologies. I am truly sorry. Thank you for all your support. I hold the Radio Australians Mel Greig and Michael Christian responsible for this act. Please make them pay my mortgage. I am sorry,”
Don’t you think her suspect death is even more suspect after reading that?
I mean, why specifically name the two deejays. Would something along the lines of “I blame the two Australian DJ’s” or “I blame the hoax call” been a more likely scenario?
“Make the cunts pay my mortgage” is a nice touch though.
Maybe I’m a bit slow, but it took me a while to remember the deejay’s names off by heart, although I was repeatedly writing about the case, yet a nurse in turmoil remembered them despite the names not really coming to prominence until after her death.
To someone not that familiar with all the details of the case, the fact she did specifically name them may appear inconsequential.
I myself, who wrote about this ‘suicide’ in great detail, find the fact very, very suspect.
Still, nice to see the slimeball MP Keith Vaz now asking the questions that I repeatedly asked back in the beginning of December 2012.
Don’t believe the truth.
THE nurse who took her life after a prank call by two Australian DJs left a suicide note where she blamed them for her death, according to a report.
Jacintha Saldanha, 46, left a note in her living quarters near King Edward VII’s Hospital in London where she died last December, The Sunday Times in the UK reports.
Ms Saldanha left three notes including one about her funeral instructions and one more that said she did not hold anyone she worked with responsible.

In the letter, which was written to her managers, she refers to the two 2Day FM DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian who posed as the Queen and Prince Charles.
“Please accept my apologies. I am truly sorry. Thank you for all your support. I hold the Radio Australians Mel Greig and Michael Christian responsible for this act. Please make them pay my mortgage. I am sorry,” she reportedly wrote.

The family of the British nurse remains hopeful an inquest will unravel the events that led to her death days after the prank call from two Australian DJs.

Greig and Christian were transferred and subsequently given an update on the condition of Prince William’s pregnant wife Catherine.
British MP Keith Vaz, who has been representing Ms Saldanha’s family, says three months after the Indian-born nurse committed suicide there remain a number of unanswered questions.

Mr Vaz has said he’s astonished the prestigious King Edward VII hospital had a nurse rather than a trained operator answering calls at reception.
“The family remain hopeful the inquest and investigating will provide the answers they seek,” the MP has previously said in a statement.
Southern Cross Media Group, which owns 2day FM who staged the prank, has been granted a position on the legal bench at the Westminster Coroners Court inquest into the death of the mother of two.
The move came after Ms Saldanha’s family hired a QC to act for them at the inquest which could partly apportion blame for her death on the radio DJs and the station that allowed the airing of the prank call.
At the end of March, the coroner’s court handed over copies of all the evidence gathered for the inquiry including copies of the three notes she left before her apparent suicide, a police report, toxicology results, a statement from the duty nurse who was the last person to see her alive as well as a letter from her GP which is expected to detail whether she was on medication at the time of her death.
It is reported she may have been taking antidepressants prescribed to her by a doctor in India after an incidence of self harm while on holidays in her native country.
The court ordered copies of the evidence be given to Southern Cross Media’s lawyer Maya Sikand to prepare for the May 2 inquest. It is understood the inquest has been delayed.
Despite the broadcaster, the family, the police and the King Edward VII Hospital all being granted legal representation at the inquest, the coroner has warned all parties she will not accept “adversarial issues” to cloud proceedings.
The caution came as Ms Saldanha’s lawyer John Cooper QC hinted there was likely to be a dispute with both the radio station and the hospital since the former claimed it had rung the nurses back to seek permission to broadcast the prank which Mr Cooper said was not correct and the hospital for placing Ms Saldanha to answer telephone calls which may be outside her contract of employment.
The inquiry is expected to hear from four witnesses including the duty nurse who saw her last and the hospital boss John Lofthouse.
The mother of two was found dead in the nurses’ quarters last December three days after putting through the call supposedly from the Queen and Prince Charles, but really DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian, to the ward treating the Duchess of Cambridge Kate for acute morning sickness.
