    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.

    Agreed . They seems to be tieing this prank to her death but there isnt anything ive seen that supports the conclusion. if it really is related there has GOT to be more to this. There has to be.

    Unfortunately the nurse must have been a very sensitive, troubled person and not doubt she received a lot of criticism from her superiors and other nurses.... God knows people can be cruel!

    So that may have been enough to tip her over the edge to take this unwarranted action.

    Which would you rather be

    • a LACKEY who'd rather die than fail the royals, or
    • a REPUBLICAN who'd rather the royals die than fail the people?
