California-born Kate Fitzgerald, former head of Democrats Abroad and PR manager with The Communications Clinic, who was discovered dead at her rented cottage in Harty Place, Dublin, on this day 12 months ago.
There is an ongoing Garda investigation into matters arising from the initial investigation into her death.
Kate’s final acts included sending the article (below) anonymously to the Irish Times to mark World Suicide Prevention Day.
It was later redacted and removed from the Irish Times digital archive on the insistence of her employers, including directors Terry Prone and Anton Savage. The paper’s editor acquiesced claiming “further details of her [Kate’s] last months” had emerged.
To date, neither Kate’s parents Tom and Sally nor her brother William have been told what those details are.
