Objective: The drivers of suicide are multiple and diverse. When suicide occurs, there is a tendency for blame to be cast about and, for relevant factors to be overlooked. Our aim was to explore the extensive published material relating to a completed suicide which was blamed on the conduct of agencies responsible for preventing/exposing public sector corruption.
Conclusions: We found blame was directed toward the agencies for the manner in which the investigation was conducted, which may or may not be justified. However, we concluded insufficient consideration had been given (in the public discourse) to the consequences of adverse legal findings which will probably negatively influence health and social outcomes.
