Do People Who Commit Suicide Usually Leave THREE Notes?

By Debbie Schlussel

Earlier in the week, I said that I thought something was not all there about Jacintha Saldanha, the nurse who committed suicide after a minor connection to the Australian DJ radio prank on the hospital where Princess Kate was staying for morning sickness (and that the radio DJs shouldn’t be blamed for her suicide). Now, it’s come out that Saldanha left not just one suicide note, but THREE. Huh? Who does that? How many times have you ever heard of a person committing suicide leaving three notes?

I now wonder if she actually committed suicide. Maybe someone wanted to get rid of her and this was the perfect opportunity. In any event, three suicide notes is not the norm and makes the whole thing very suspicious. And one of the notes blames the hospital (apparently not the DJs) for not treating her so well after the incident, contrary to the hospital’s statement that it was supportive of her.

Hmmm . . .

The nurse found dead following a hoax call to the hospital treating the Duchess of Cambridge criticised senior colleagues over her treatment in one of three suicide notes, it has emerged.

An inquest heard that Jacintha Saldanha, 46, left three emotional suicide notes following the prank call by Australian DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian.

But it has emerged today that in one of the notes she has criticised colleagues at the King Edward VII hospital over her treatment following the controversial call.

What do you think really happened here and why the three notes? Weird. Either way, this should take some of the unfounded blame and guilt off of the Australian DJs (one would hope).

Obviously it’s a tragic incident.

But, I really resent the rather insipid and ‘convenient’ blaming of the Australian DJs. I mean, let’s be frank, it’s no so obviously correlative that a prank call leads someone to kill themselves. Further, the prank call was not targeting this lady, attacking her, threatening her etc.

So, I suspect there is underlying issues here that are not known. Do we know this lady’s mental health BEFORE the incident? Was she unhappy at work due to bullying and so this prank call just added to already existing issues?

It’s just to convenient and plain wrong in my opinion to say that two DJs from Australia picked up a phone, made a silly prank call (not aimed at the woman) and this made the woman kill herself.

I would say that the handwriting on those notes should be closely examined. Debbie is quite right in finding three notes bizarre. Suicide tends to be an impulsive act, and penning one note after another is not an impulsive activity. We could be looking at a concealed homicide.

Maybe look for Palace fingerprints.

We will learn the truth just after we receive full disclosure on Benghazi.

Exactly what I was thinking when this news first came out. I was thinking that where she worked she was not treated with respect and probably harrassed to say the least by her superiors and/or colleagues.This woman was reacting to the possible crap she would be getting from her boss the next day after the news was out.

As I stated in the previous an original posting by Deb, my suspicion has been that this lady’s employment was of a carrot and stick type for some kind of “status” commonly held over imported employees.

The event that occurred was enough to jeopardize sometime – and now the 3 notes and complaint raises further suspicion.


1. Either one various agencies will succeed in clamping down on this to protect the Royal Family and other well “connected” parties.


2. Further details will come out – and one end result will be that the DJ’s will be exonerated and get their jobs back. We already know that their acting wasn’t as believable as the media makes it out to be.

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark or somewhere else.

This really needs to get serious investigating.

3 notes is interesting.
seems rather silly reason for suicide, but heck…

to consider:
people can get very wrapped up in the being a royalist: was she one of these?
her sense of honor and duty: port anti-clockwise, weobley revolver following! (re the doctor tricked over blair’s 40-minute dossier)

the djs seem very sorry for themselves, but niot a lot more: lots of crocodile tears.
several newspapers wrote that legal experts have said
they could be up for treason (personation being considered as a claim to the throne: the king is dead, long live the king… yup, still capital). their intent was to gain personal information by deception – another offense. some have tried to make a parallel with wossygate, but that was merely malicious/humorous without the criminal activity of the 2 whiners

i do believe the hospital statement: it doesn’t say that they didn’t yell at her, but they didn’t fire or suspend her, for which there was plenty of time

to even think that there may not be other things going on in her life is just dumb: maybe just the final straw

conspiracy…? erm… naaah. for what? it’s just too early. at this point the only thing they could tell would be if it was damien!

Haven’t paid attention to this tragic death but three notes… Dunno. Different notes to different loved ones? Perhaps. Hopefully they’ll figure it out and bring any wrong doers to justice. This poor woman should not have died and the DJs shouldn’t be scapegoats.

Sounds like a job for Scooby and the Mystery Machine!

Interestingly enough there are other things that might be happening.

There is a very active yahoo group whose focus is Bullying. I’ve read that group off and on for years. One of the major problems reported by dozens of people is the toxic attitude within the British Health Care System.

I’ve watched as several people were “talked down” within that system. Evidently the toxicity is akin to nothing most people have ever seen. The situation is so bad that people get Disability Retirements from the stress of working for certain bosses, and their system makes it almost impossible to criticize that boss.

Although I thought the DJs’ prank call was in poor taste, I’m appalled that the media is throwing them under the bus.

If this nurse did, in fact, commit suicide, it’s my belief that she was already dealing with other issues in her life that may have lead to her suicide. The prank call may have been the “last straw”, but the typical level-headed person would not lose the will to live solely because of a prank telephone call.

You can tell by the look in her eyes in that picture that she was not in the present. This was a work in progress; just so happened it took place right after the prank call. To hang those DJ’s out for this is another example of the limpdick media’s lack of common sense and rush to judgement.

I have never heard that people usually leave three notes, what a strange rumor. I appreciate this post on “Busting the Myths About Suicide”

The Brits are crazy anyway. They’re not all like Churchill.

They’re a bunch of inbred semi-idiot savants, who occasionally can pen a good rock and roll tune or play the guitar well.

What else can you say about a people who never shower (oh wait, that’s the French) and clean their teeth–when they clean their teeth–with screwdrivers? (It’s true, there was a survey a few years back.)

Did you ever notice how many of the strange stories in the Weekly World News seemed to originate in the UK? Bizarre place.

Thank you!
