Kate Middleton's Deceased Nurse Blamed Pranking Aussie DJs In Suicide Note Too

The DJs must be devastated!

As more details from Jacintha Saldanha's suicide notes are made available, we are learning the nurse and mother of two also blamed Australian DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian for their parts in the radio prank which occurred days before she took her own life.

In that note, she reportedly expressed a deep anger toward the DJs who incidentally targeted her in a prank designed around getting in touch with Kate Middleton who was then being hospitalized for minor complications resulting from her pregnancy.

The DJs admitted to feeling bad enough before being directly implicated by Jacintha for their part in this whole tragedy — they must feel awful now.

The nurse wrote three suicide notes before hanging herself and, as we already reported, two of them cast blame on her colleagues at King Edward VII hospital.

Her body was transported back to her hometown in India to be laid to rest after her family honored her with a touching ceremony in London over the weekend.

We sincerely hope both Jacintha and her surviving family members will find peace.

    I am surprised that a lot of the people that YOU, YES, YOU, made fun of didn't off themselves. Perez Hilton? No, Perez Killer. That nurse was a compassionate soul, helping mankind and she got pranked by two loosers that thought it would be funny.Scared and guilty, she did the ultimate apology.. Are you happy Perez? Killer Queen? Danger Mouse?

    Devastated is not as bad as being dead, asshole.

    This is horrible. She must have been treated very badly by her collegues after this horrific prank by those idiot D.J.'s in order to get to this point. We all need to rethink what is funny and what is not, because what is funny to us can have deadly consequences to someone like Jacintha (R.I.P.). I know I'm always going to feel awful for having laughed about this, because in retrospect it really wasn't funny, but mean-spirited.

    The lady on the left is NOT Kate Middleton….or is the worst pic of her you could find!

    I feel horrible for this woman but to kill herself over a prank and blaim the dj's is way worse than the actual prank itself. Not to mention she did this to her kids!!! Killing yourself? Leaving your kids without a mother because someone pranked you? Its selfish! I don't care if she got fired and never hired as a nurse again, you don't do that to your family!! I have done prank phone calls when I was in middle school, it could have easily been a 12 year old who did it, you can clearly tell it isn't actually the Queen. Sorry but its true. All she did was put the nurse on, it just shows that the nurses weren't qualified. I'm sorry I feel bad for her family but seriously she is the one who decided to the selfish deed.

    While I am truly sorry for the nurse and especially the family that she left behind I really don't thin these two DJ's deserve to have their lives ruined over the phone call they made. For lack of a better term I don't feel the punishment fits the crime. The nurse may she rest in peace obviously was disturbed prior to this happening. I cannot imagine taking my own life because of an error in judgement at work even if it resulted in extreme humiliation and some type of bullying at work which has been claimed.

    We are the masters of our own ship. The DJ's prank was not well thought through and maybe even a little mean but in the end it was the nurse who chose to end things as she did. Leaving her family to grieve her.

    Re: heather – I agree with you. Blaming the DJ's in her suicide notes I feel is somewhat cowardly. As was the act itself of taking her own life and leaving her family the way she did.

  11. Maura says – reply to this

    Why does everyone hate the DJs SO much? They didn't loop the noose around her neck. She reacted badly to a practical joke and committed suicide, but the two DJs certainly aren't responsible for a grown woman taking her own life.



  12. 12

    And how does her family fit into all this? If she had a supportive, happy family - it would take a lot more than being treated badly at work and undergoing a humiliating incident to make her want to end it all. And if she did have a supportive family she must have been battling some kind of depression or mental illness. Perhaps instead of blaming DJ's and co-workers, we should look around us and see if there is anyone in our lives who is not getting the help they need.



  13. 13

    Why was this SERIOUSLY MENTALLY ILL nurse allowed anywhere near hospitals or patients?

    That prank telephone call was ABSOLUTELY HARMLESS, and actually very dull & boring.



  14. 14

    Tired of people blaming the DJ or the hotel staff. For God's sake! No one kills themselves if they don't want to kill themselves! This woman obviously had mental issues that she did not deal with. It was a harmless prank done hundreds of times in radio stations across the world. No reason for her to kill herself. She should be ashamed of herself for blaming the DJs in her suicide note.

    This woman had some major issues in her life…to take her own life because of a prank, no matter how tasteless, is not the action of an emotionally stable person.

  16. Dan85 says – reply to this


    16

    This woman had some major issues. But to go and kill yourself over this bad joke? Thats fucked up.



  17. 17

    Who knows what this nurse would have done if she answered a wrong number….



  18. 18

    Re: heather – Agreed.

    Also, who writes THREE suicide notes…where's the note to her children apologizing?



  19. 19

    Re: heather – I agree with you. Any woman with two kids whom she loves does not just kill herself because of a prank call. She obviously had mental problems.

  20. Jeff says – reply to this


    20

    Let's be realistic, isn't wasn't the prank itself that caused the suicide. It was the way the hospital reacted toward the nurse. Although the blame is for all parties involved. If the hospital didn't give her crap about the incident she would still be here.



  21. 21

    What? So basically it's everyone else's fault that she chose to abandon her kids and take her own life? When are we going to say, Um, ok, obviously this woman had mental issues and it is HER fault alone? Do we really have to monitor every thing we say or do in case someone else has a negative reaction and does something drastic? Not saying the prank wasn't cruel, but ultimately we are all adults and have to be held accountable for our own responses to other people's actions.

    22

    Hey Perez- who is the lady on the left? It certainly is not Kate. Irresponsible reporting at its best. I swear you just make shit up sometimes. If I was the lady on the left I would be getting a lawyer and sue the hell out of you.

    Re: shhhhh – This nurse was of a different culture, and we know nothing about this culture. DO NOT judge if you don't know. Why are so many saying she was mentally ill? Again, no where is this stated by a reliable source. Don't jump to conclusions, and think you are correct.
    The first fault lies with the DJ's; you don't prank people with high profiles and tight security…..they should find a pranking career!!!



  24. 24

    I hate to blame the victim…but their had to be some underlying mental issues here, there had to be. If this had bullying had been going on for months, I could possibly see it leading there…but it was a prank phone call (one in bad taste but still, just a bad prank) and a couple of days of possible negative treatment at work…that doesn't lead anyone to suicide. Maybe a night of drinking, a good cry…but that's it. A mentally stable person wouldn't end it because of a couple hard days.

  25. Sandy says – reply to this


    25

    This nurse was of a different culture. One we know nothing about. Don't be so hasty in judging people. Where does it state that she had mental problems? Again, people jumping to conclusions. Common sense: You do NOT prank high profile people with tight security. The DJ's started this crap, therefore should be responsible for their unacceptable behavior!!

    Re: Sandy – Since when is Indian culture something unchartered and exotic that "we" know nothing about? It also wasn't exactly seppuku.

  27. shanghai says – reply to this


    27

    Well thats so unfair the DJs only meant it as a harmless prank and with those awful British accents NEVER expected to even get past the main switchboard. They are devastated. Think the hospital should be taking more responsibility and should have trained their staff to deal with the media with regard to their patients. No matter how bad things were with her colleagues after this event and even if she lost her job how could she leave her kids who are teenagers and need their Mum.

    that could have been you, perez you ahole. you were so cruel for a long time. now you're passive aggressive, but still a bully.

    one thing no one's mentioned is that there could be a cultural divide here in terms of how shame is processed. We westerners may think it's something she should have let slide off her back, but this prank left her feeling downright hopeless and you can't blame it all on her not having a sense of humor, I think her indian background contributed to how she procressed it all.

    I'm 100% sure the royal family was part of it too.. they prolly gave the hospital shit ..and in return the hospital gave her shit..

    FAIL!! That woman on the left is not Kate Middleton!!! Wtf Perez!!

  34. Sandy says – reply to this


    34

    Re: cheesuschrimbus – Yes, they take their professions much more serious than Westerners. It was very shameful for her as she shamed her entire Family. Check it out. I've worked with East Indian people, you and I will never understand their way of thinking………………people need to have an open mind instead of labelling someone mentally ill, if they don't know……….I'm done

    This is ridiculous! To blame the djs is a joke! I don't think they woke up and says let's target that nurse Jacintha today!! The whole conversation she had with the djs was 10 seconds long! Those djs now have to live with the guilt because Jacintha herself chose to kill herself!! Noone forced her to!! Her children now don't have a mother because of her actions no one else's!!



  36. 36

    Re: Sandy – I agree, I think this is a cultural issue that american's are not understanding. She's Indian and they take certain things more seriously. In some cultures shame is taken extremely heavily. I don't think she had mental issues she was probably raised this way. In India your profession is the MOST important thing. In middle school if you are pulling grades good enough to have a good job doctor, lawyer, etc. you get kicked out and have to start working the low wage jobs. Her culture probably made her feel like something so shameful couldn't be lived with…
    In some cultures being motherless isn't as bad as having a mother that shamed the family. I'm not saying it's right but please don't insult this woman, she deserves some respect for being a human being.

    Re: CaritaDeCleopatra – Thank you, Carita, you and I are on the same page. I've worked with these people; and we will never understand their culture. I so dislike when people say she was "mentally ill". Google it, whatever, read up on their culture. My opinion is this woman was not mentally ill! Thanks again for understanding what I know to be true >3

    Suicide is the most selfish thing anyone can do, there is no evidence that she would have been punished for what she did. The other nurse involved in the phone conversation didn't commit suicide did she, NO SHE DIDN'T. As far as I'm concerned this woman is selfish and has left her two children alone in the world for nothing.

    I really have nothing against the DJ's, 100 other people probably made that phone call that day, it's not their fault the most mentally unstable person in the building picked up the phone.

    Re: rosebud99 – I think that's Kate Middleton. Looks like an old picture of her.

    Re: mia – My Dear Mia: You just don't understand. We Westerns cannot understand their culture. It has nothing to do with being selfish/brave/courageous; any of these things. It has to do with life's principles; and dishonour has no room in some people's lives. Get it?



  41. 41

    Re: heather – You have a good point. When you get right down to it, it was Ms. Saldanha who selfishly chose to end her life because of the actions of the Aussie DJs, and they will have to live with that for the rest of their lives. I'm not saying that they shouldn't feel bad about it, but enough of the blame game already.



  42. 42

    i have no idea who the woman on the left is …

    clearly this woman was deranged who offs themselves over nothing …. she pulled the trigger noone else..

    no, no, no!
    they aren`t to blame for other people`s wrong decisions. killing yourself is always wrong. now don`t blame it on others.

    I have no sympathy or tolerance for this selfish, cowardly, thoughtless woman who abandoned her children in such a terrible way. Her death is no loss to humanity.

    Im indian and there is nothing that exists in my culture which says you should take your life if u feel ashamed, embarrassed etc. please stop making things up. But we all do know how rude white people can be to others, like her coworkers, who knows what those unemotional, heartless beings said to her.

    These DJ's should know better not to prank call a hospital. That prank call was just a waste of time when these nurses could have been helping someone. And for everyone calling Jacintha selfish then you're stupid. No one on here knows what was going on in her life. Obviously I feel sorry for the kids she has left behind but if she couldn't look after them properly then she'd probably want a better life for them.

    Re: ParisIsBurning – as a nurse, she should of known better, again it's a sad situation, but I'm a nurse in a trauma unit and unless the immediate family gives a password, you DO NOT GIVE OUT information, this is ingrained in the training, we get phone calls all the time from the media pretending to be family trying to get info, you don't give it out, she should of said sorry you need to speak with her husband or rerouted the call to administration. Here in the U.S. it's called HIPPA, patient privacy act, and you are fired on the spot for giving out information. doesn't mean she wasn't compassionate, i'm sure she was and a very good nurse, but that is one of the responsibilities of being nurse you follow all laws, policies, etc

  49. lesia yates says – reply to this


    49

    Re: Moniker – yes it is, but in the end it does fall on the nurse, she should have known better. I can say that because I am a nurse and you don't put through phone calls.

    Re: heather – agree heather, I'm a nurse and have been for 15 years, I work in a level I trauma center in the U.S. in the neuro/trauma ICU, I don't know how england is, but here we have HIPPA laws, federal, (patient privacy act) and we only give out information to the next of kin (which would be her husband), and when family calls the unit they have to have a password we give them, or no information, if it's a high profile patient all calls are transferred to hospital administration and we give no information out, we can actually be fired on the spot for breaking HIPPA law. It was a bad joke, it's sad for her family, I'm sure she was an excellent nurse, compassionate, but as a nurse, she has to take responsibility. Someone this high profile, should of set up a red flag then and there, no calls in, maybe their hospital needs to work on it's policies. But ultimately she is to blame because she let the call through, but it's not something to kill yourself over and do that to your kids.

    The nurse was obviously extremely disturbed to begin with. She wasn't targeted by anyone. To feel such persecution is an indicator of deeper more severe issues. Its not some cultural thing we done get (ahem Sandy) The DJs are taking too much blame for a ridiculous joke.

    Re: heather – So you think that's selfish huh? Think twice, she got fooled by idiots who do not think! If you also did phone pranks that makes you one of those who do not think of the consequences of your actions! That woman had dignity and did her mea culpa as she saw it fit. I am totally against suicide and it's not fair to her family, but you just don't play pranks on everyone and expect all to accept it. This also a privacy invasion thing concerning the royal family. And to make it all worse, her colleagues who were not all indians had to take a piss at her later. Common….. She shouldn't have taken her own like à la Harakiri, but the pranksters are never going to forget what they did and that will hunt them for the rest of their sorry ass days!

    These 2 DJs did NOTHING wrong!!! What they did was not mean-spirited at all. It's sad that this woman took her own life. But those 2 people are in no way at all responsible for her choice!

    I don't understand why so many people are siding with her. This woman has done something digusting. She has left her children and husband in a terrible way, and with her suicide note, she has attempted to place a maximum amount of guilt on her colleagues and the DJs (who had no way of predicting the impact their prank would have).
