Coroner Rules Caroline Flack Died by Suicide Because She Feared Public Trial

Coroner Rules Caroline Flack Died by Suicide Because She Feared Public Trial

A coroner has ruled regarding the cause of Caroline Flack‘s suicide.

The late Love Island host, who killed herself in February, died out of fear of being prosecuted for assaulting her boyfriend Lewis Burton, it was ruled on Thursday (August 6) in court in London, England.

“Although (Flack‘s) general fluctuating (mental) state was a background and important in her death, I find the reason for her taking her life was she now knew she was being prosecuted for certainty, and she knew she would face the media, press, publicity — it would all come down upon her. To me, that’s it in essence,” coroner Mary Hassell declared at Poplar Coroner’s Court, via Sky News.

She was charged with assaulting her boyfriend in December of 2019, and took her life at her apartment two months later at the age of 40.

More details also surfaced regarding the final days before her tragic death during the court session.
