Jacintha Saldanha, RN at King Edward VII Hospital, was found dead two days after being pranked by a Aussie radio station into divulging Kate Middleton’s medical status, reports state. Suicide has been offered as a potential cause. And we take a moment to think, ‘hmmmm.’
The hospital has released a statement professing their sorrow and acknowledging the prank being treated by the media as if it were a breach of National Security.
And our ‘hmmmm’ continues.
There is an undeniable level of sadness that follows this story. But we can’t help but question labeling this incident a “suicide.”
Saldanha was reportedly found a few blocks from her place of work.
Why would anyone chose to commit suicide on the street. Not a likely place for such an act.
Another question that nags at our tailcoat is, if in fact this results in a suicide as opposed to a homicide, why would anyone take their own life for something amounting to little else than a blunder.
Saldanha is survived by her husband and two children.
