A BBC journalist lost her mind and killed herself after learning that she missed her flight, according to investigators in the United Kingdom.

The North London Coroner’s Court heard that 50-year-old Jacqueline Sutton, was waiting to catch a flight from Turkey to Iraq, when she learned that she missed her flight.

According to the police investigation, Sutton drank beer in the departure lounge of the Ataturk Airport. When passengers began boarding the flight to Iraq, she went to the bathroom.

When she came out of the bathroom, Sutton realized that she missed the flight. She told staff that she had no money to pay for another flight, and she began to cry.

Sutton then returned to the bathroom, but never came out. Her body was found hanging by two women who alerted police. A court ruled that Sutton committed suicide.
