Kate Middleton Pregnancy Watch: Jacintha Saldanha, suicide notes, death threats and prestigious imitation

by | 14th, December 2012

KATE Middleton Pregnancy Watch Day 13 of the Duchess of Cambridge’s womb news: Jacintha Saldanha continues to dominate.

The front pages:

Daily Mirror : “HOAX NURSE ANGER AT HOSPITAL IN SUICIDE NOTE”
The Guardian : “Hoax call victim left suicide note criticising hospital staff”

The Mirror :

A source close to Jacintha’s family said: “One of the letters, which is the longest, deals with the hospital and is critical in its tone.

We can get a timeline. We can apportion blame. But we can never know the full facts.

The Times has news on Mel Greig and Michael Christian, the Australian DJS who made that prank callto King Edward VII hospital:

One letter sent to DJ Michael Christian warned him there were “bullets out there with your name on it.” Further threats were made involving a shotgun which were inappropriate to print, according to the Sydney Daily Telegraph which obtained the letter.
