RIP Charlotte Dawson

The Daily Telegraph reports:

CHARLOTTE Dawson has been found dead at her Woolloomooloo home.

The popular television presenter is understood to have been found by a security guard this morning.

Dawson, 47, had long battled depression.

Police confirmed they were called to Woolloomooloo wharf at 11.18am and there were no suspicious circumstances to the death.

This is very sad. Dawson was very open about her battle with depression. Many were supportive of her, but there were quite a few who were incredibly nasty towards her on Twitter and urged her to kill herself. I hope those people who took part in her tormenting go through a period of soul searching.

I didn’t know Charlotte first hand, but know several people who did know her well, and they always spoke warmly of her sense of humour and generosity. Both her passing, and the manner of it, are very sad.

For those who may need assistance, the depression helpline is 0800 111 757.
