The nurse that hung herself just three days after the hoax played out by two Australian DJs at the King Edward VII hospital, where Kate Middleton was staying, has left behind three suicide notes.
Copies of the notes have been given to her family, two sons and a husband, Ben Barboza.
Sources tell The Guardian that one of the notes was found in her belongings and two of them were left on the scene of her suicide.
Jacintha Saldanha, 46, wrote about the radio hoax, which saw her putting in a call through to the ward that pregnant Middleton was staying in and another nurse revealing information about her condition.
The other two deal with her wishes for funeral arrangements, and the other criticizes the staff at King Edward VII.
Detective Chief Inspector James Harman has said "There are a number of emails that are of relevance in helping us establish what may have led to this death and we are also looking at the deceased's telephone contacts. Detectives spoke to a number of witnesses, family, friends and colleagues in order to establish anything that led or may have contributed to this tragic death."
As we previously reported, Saldanha’s family has requested “full facts” about everything leading up to her death.
MP Keith Vaz explained, “What the family need are the full facts. There are unexplained circumstances. The family want to know everything. The hospital needs to be more proactive, a full inquiry is needed and the family need to be included in that.”
