Vicki Archer

The 41-year-old Archer, a divorced mother of three children, presented together with colleague Adam Green, the BBC programme, Radio Shropshire. Halfway through the broadcast, got the host, however, and showed them to colleagues know that they are “taking a break” needed. Three hours later, Archer lifeless in her apartment found by her stepfather, who with her mother came to her stove top repair. The man called immediately the emergency services, who gave him telephone instructions gave to his stepdaughter, who had hanged himself, to revive him.

A few weeks before her death had Archer a number of tweets from the about inner demons and mental health problems. Also had the radiopresentatrice the phone number of the zelfmoordlijn shared and she wrote about ’painful gossip’. “Rumors are almost never helpful, positive or encouraging. It is caustic, hurtful, and normally has nothing to do with you. You do not need to be a part of. Say ’no thanks’ and go away.”

In a statement let her family know not to believe that Vicki is no longer there. “Her joy for life was contagious, she was a wonderful mother and daughter, and her charm made everyone who knew her laugh. She could light up a room. We will for always be missed and we wish her and all that she has achieved honour.”

Next spring the family will have a ceremony of commemoration of her life. “For now, we want to thank everyone for their support and friendship that helps us to this terrible loss.”
