    I hope she left a note. I'm curious if her suicide had anything to do with the hoax.

    Why charge the DJ's with anything when it was obvious they were playing a prank? How could someone be so dumb as to fall for it?

    As pranks go, this was extremely mild. Unless this woman was mentally unstable, it didn't cause her death.
