And with an inquest hearing that the provisional cause of death was given as suspension by ligature (telegraph.co.uk):

Caroline Flack’s unpublished Instagram post released by family (bbc.co.uk).

The unpublished post said her “whole world and future was swept from under my feet” when she had been arrested for assaulting her boyfriend in December.

Her mother said Flack had been advised not to publish the message, which has now been shared through the Eastern Daily Press.

With her need to write the message further suggesting what a bullying, judgmental panopticon social media platforms have become perhaps adding weight to claims that it is wrong to blame the media:

Media not to blame for Caroline Flack death—Editors (rte.ie).

The Society of Editors saying in a statement that:

It is “wrong to blame the media” for the death of Caroline Flack, the organisation that represents the editors of the UK’s top newspapers has said.

And that it is “wrong for politicians to use her tragic death” to attack the media and call for tougher regulation, with BoJo, the Pinkie to Rasputinesque special adviser Dominic Cumming’s Brain, as keen to regulate some newspapers and the Beeb for not being sufficiently chipper regards Brexit and attempt to have Blighty reform it’s Empire and economically rule the waves again with the half dozen tugboats it has at its disposal.

The statement also said the police investigation and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) decision to charge Flack for assaulting her boyfriend were matters that were “in the public domain and should be covered”.

“To believe that by silencing mainstream media on such matters would prevent speculation on social media where rumour and accusations run unchecked by the regulations the media adheres to, is both naive and dangerous,” it continued.

And with an op-ed in the Indy stressing it’s something of a chicken and egg scenario:

Petitions over Caroline Flack’s death are understandable—but they won’t lead to the change you’re hoping for (independent.co.uk).

Journalism is often shaped by the views of a publication’s readership, equally, journalism shapes those views. Journalists make choices every day in the selection of material for publication and the language used to tell those stories.

And with Inspector Knacker letting watchdog sniff his truncheon for any evidence of blame as matter of course too:

Caroline Flack death: Police refer themselves to watchdog over host’s suicide (dailystar.co.uk).

In a statement, the Met said: “As is standard practice when a member of the public dies or is seriously injured and has had recent contact with police, the Directorate of Professional Standards has reviewed all previous police contact with Ms Flack.

“No notice of investigation has been served on any officer and no conduct issues have been identified by the DPS. No officer is on restricted duties or suspended.”&

But with Knacker finding himself absolved of guilt:

Caroline Flack: ‘No causal link’ between police action and Love Island host’s death (bbc.co.uk).

The Independent Office for Police Conduct said there was no indication of a “causal link” between the actions of police and the presenter’s death.

While an internal review by the CPS has defended its decision to charge Flack and that its review “found that the case was handled appropriately and in line with [our] published legal guidance“ following a Freedom of Information request from the Daily Mirror.

And while brief rugby ex Danny Cipriani continued to open up about almost buying a gun to end his own life in the past (mirror.co.uk, Feb. 2020) and how he will now quit social media to come to terms with his grief after sharing his last messages with Caroline, albeit if only for a month (dailymail.co.uk, Feb. 2020):

Caroline Flack’s autobiography to be re-released with all profits going to her family (dailystar.co.uk).

Following her Strictly win in 2014, the TV presenter wrote her memoir about past relationships, life behind the spotlight, and her challenging career ladder.

With the profits from her re-released Storm in a C Cup memoir going to her family, who now oversee her estate.
