Royal hoax DJ Mel Grieg blames her employers for nurse’s death – but that’s ridiculous

mel greig sues

JACINTHA Saldanha blamed the DJS who tricked her for her suicide in December 2012. The 46-year-old mother of two took a hoax call while working at King Edward VII’s Hospital, London, where Kate Middleton had been undergoing treatment for acute morning sickness. In her suicide note, she blamed Michael Christian and Mel Greig for her state of mind.

Allegedly, the deceased was a depressive who had tried to end her life before.

So. What happened next? Well, her family were forced to get over a terrible loss.

In June, one of the pranksters, DJ Christian, was given the “top jock” award at the Southern Cross Austereo network, which still employs him.  He was thrilled, stating:

“From the start I felt like I had something to prove to myself. That regardless of all that’s happened in the past few months I’m still at the top of my game. So it felt good to see my name at the top of the final leader board.”
