A 50 year old British woman, Jacky Sutton, who was a former BBC journalist, was found dead in a toilet early yesterday morning at Istanbul Airport after missing a connecting flight. She reportedly flew from London to Istanbul but missed a connecting flight to Erbil in Iraqi Kurdistan.I don't have an idea what might have caused Jacky to take her own life,but it surely isn't cos she had no money to buy a new ticket.
Local media reports state she told airport staff she did not have enough money to buy a new
ticket. Her body was found a short time later.Who kills themselves over that? Jacky must sadly have had some issues or problems that she couldn't deal with.Very sad.
Ms Sutton had worked in Iraq for several years and was the acting Iraq director for the Institute for War and Peace Reporting (IWPR). She was also studying for a PhD at the The Australian National University in Canberra.
The IWPR's previous Iraq director Ammar Al Shahbander was killed in a car bomb attack in Baghdad on May 2.
