Let's hope the police put as much effort into investigating Brenda's death as they've put into trying to clear the McCanns. We can but dream

I'm reminded of the case of the EastEnders actor who committed suicide after being hounded by the press.

i find that quite disturbing from the MCcs spokesperson. haven't the family, friends, advisers and the McCs themselves commented on matters that are for the police. Ill ask the questions, again, were the McCS aware of the actions reporters for Sky intended to take with Brenda Leyland and were the msm briefed on the this, if so who briefed them, or did they just pick up on the story and why did they decide to give it national coverage in the press and online?

Hundreds of people react on Facebook and Twitter after learning about the death of Brenda Leyland, the woman accused of sending abusive message to Kate and Gerry McCann


By PA_Warzynski | Posted: October 06, 2014

Brenda Leyland was accused of posting a series of abusive messages on Twitter aimed at Kate and Gerry McCann


Brenda Leyland and her son Ben Leyland




The death of ‘Twitter troll’ Brenda Leyland has caused a huge reaction from members of the public and sparked a passionate debate about social media and the press.

The 63-year-old, from Burton Overy, who was accused of sending abusive messages to the parents of Madeleine McCann, Kate and Gerry, was found dead at the Marriott Hotel, in Smith Way, Enderby, on Saturday.

Folling the news, hundreds of people have taken to social media to make comments about her death, the abusive messages to the McCanns and the way the media has handled the situation.

Her son Ben Leyland, who lives in LA, was one of the first to post a message and expressed his grief through Facebook, saying: “I love you mum and miss you forever”.

His friends and family offered messages of condolence via social media, and hundreds more have taken to the Internet to express their views on the news.

Keith Osbourne was one of those paying his respects to the Leicestershire mother.

He posted: “Such sad news RIP BRENDA u dint deserve death. Wunt be same not seing u in Leicester.”

John Cawley also expressed his sorrow at the news.

“Sad,” he wrote. “We have to admit that social media is a drug just like real drugs and alcohol.

“Don't judge this lady, judge the world we live in. God bless her. RIP.”

Tanveer N Anisha Mohinudeen wrote: “Omg so sad to hear. Going back to college days n remembering Brenda she wasn't like that but I guess pple chnge but still sad tho.”

Other people have not been as sympathetic, and have continued to condemn the way she had attacked the McCanns.

Daniella Ella wrote: “No disrespect to her family but she was giving out something she couldn't take!

“Bullying should not be tolerated in any form and should always be exposed!!”

Lucy Willgress posted: “I'm sorry, but anyone who attacks other people online behind a facade (without knowing the full story) is not a nice person.

She added: “I'm sorry for this woman's family but she did what she did...obviously couldn't face the music for her own actions.”

Responding to the post, Sheetal N Krupesh wrote: “She couldn't face the music? Are u serious?

“Yes she may have said a few things that maybe were taken out of term!!

“But she did not deserve to be hunted down, stalked or harassed to the point she had to take her life!”

Many have also blamed the press for the death of Brenda Leyland.

Sky News reporter Martin Brunt, who filmed her outside her home and questioned her about the hateful messages, has been receiving abuse from people on Twitter.

Sarah Thomas (@ArsenalSarah) tweeted: “Abhorrent hounding of a Woman who's mental strength was obviously unimportant to you.

“Shame on @Skynews @skymartinbrunt RIP #BrendaLeyland.”

Others have also expressed concerns about how the media has gone about the story.

Commenting on the story on Facebook, Abdul Khaled wrote: “These newspapers are selfish and have no regards to people's welfare all they are interested in is chatting and spreading rubbish.”

Erica Justice Williams wrote: “Rupert Murdoch's henchman should hang their heads in shame!”

I only found out about this on the news this morning and have become increasingly angry as the day is going on. How dare the media label this poor woman in the way that they are! The reporting is absolutely appalling. Her poor family.

I would point out that the matter of Madeleine's "disappearance" was/is a matter for the police as well.  Part of that "matter" was the expectation that both parents would co-operate in the investigation.  Madeleine's own mother refused to answer 48 questions regarding the "disappearance" despite being advised that her refusal to do so would hinder the police investigation.  Yet here we are seven years later and the McCanns are suing Mr. Amaral for hindering the investigation.

Post  LJC on Mon 6 Oct - 16:11

What is really getting to me is the fact that all news concerning the McCanns had gone very quiet. Nothing on SY's investigation, nothing on the court case, all very quiet on the forums.

But I do not think the McCanns like it when there is no news about the case. And Sky News do seem, imo, to strive to keep Madeleine in the news on their behalf.

And I might be wrong but I would find it hard to believe that the McCanns would not be briefed on the upcoming Sky Special Report. In fact I doubt very much that Sky would run such a story without consulting with them first because, if nothing else, the twins have already said their school friends are asking questions and the McCanns surely would need an opportunity to prepare the twins for more questions which would inevitably be asked following screening of this report. And the fact that Brenda Leyland also lived in Leicestershire is probably why, over all others, they (Sky) chose to make an example out of her.

On that basis I believe they knew beforehand what Sky were about to do, perhaps even the name of the person who Sky were going to expose and were, imo, relishing making the headlines again.

Well, as a result of a tragedy borne out of publicly making an example of Brenda Leyland, the result of this is now endless talking about this case, which will carry on because there will be her funeral in the news and an inquest and the name of Madeleine and the McCanns will no doubt keep cropping up. Is this really what they wanted?

What will the twins make of these latest headlines? Seeing their name McCann in the same headline about a lady who has killed herself? I think now Kate and Gerry will struggle to explain this one away and to protect the twins from the interest that is bound to arise at their school.

Certainly it would seem that the price of keeping Madeleine in the headlines has come with a very hefty price tag indeed.

Before sleeping last night my thoughts were of Brenda Leyland.  How I wish she had been able to escape the chaos of the last few days by spending some time with her son in California.  I wonder if she saw that column by Carole Malone before she made the final decision.  I wish I had been able to comfort her by saying all this was just a temporary problem and not worth her permanent solution.

Earlier yesterday when I read the article about her death in the Daily Mail, I added a condolence comment.  I noticed today, while my comment received over 2,000 green arrows, sadly over 1,000 red arrowed it.

LJC I agree with your post  is it the reason why I have asked did the McCs know beforehand that Brunty was going to ambush Brenda Leyland in the way he did and for sky to run a special report on it.  my reasons for this are the ones you have stated so much clearly than I could have in your post.  I also question whether the msm received a briefing and who briefed them because the story was in all the hard copy and online media.  why?  as the McCs spokesman said  It is entirely a matter for the police.  they should have left it with the police.

eta I really don't think this was about keeping Madeleine in the public eye, it was about keeping her parents in the public eye.
