LONDON – The family of a British woman who died in an Istanbul airport bathroom while in transit to Iraq says it agrees with Turkish authorities that there were no signs of foul play.
A statement released Wednesday by Jacqueline Sutton's family and the Institute for War and Peace Reporting where she worked indicates they are satisfied with the Turkish investigation.
Turkish officials had said Monday she took her own life after missing a connecting flight to northern Iraq. Sister Jenny Sutton said the family was "deeply skeptical about initial reports" but now believe that no one attacked Jacqueline.
The family said Turkish authorities have cooperated fully and provided a complete dossier of information about the case. The family and the institute said their investigation will continue aided by an independent expert.
