On Tuesday, August 7, the horrible news was reported that longtime, beloved radio host Vicki Archer had passed away. Now, months later, her sad cause of death has officially been revealed.
Vicki was only 41-years-old at the time of her death. She had been a part of a BBC program for over 20 years and was loved by many around the station.
When the news of her death first emerged, little details were revealed. Eric Smith, another presenter on BBC, was the one who announced her death. He said that she "died suddenly" but did not reveal the cause.
Now, a horrible update has been given. According to Express, Vicki left her work saying she needed to take a break. Hours later, she was found dead at her home. The coroner has ruled it death by suicide, as Vicki was sadly found hanging in the loft of her home.
Vicki was reportedly found by her stepfather, Lee Holyoake, around three hours after her death. He said that he was told she had left work early, and that "alarm bells started to ring" in his head.
According to reports, Vicki was struggling with depression. She had attempted to take her own life two previous times.
Please be praying for Vicki's family during this time, as they just got the official results from the coroner. Also, if you or anyone you know is suffering from depression, please utilize the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
