Romanian woman who died at St Paul’s Cathedral in London has left two suicide notes

Medical student Lidia Dragescu fell 100ft backwards clutching two suicide notes – one to her mother and one to those who saw her fall.

The student had two notes written in her native Romanian in her hands while she fell after saying goodbye to her mother Isabela just an hour-and-a -half before, dailymail.co.uk informs.

The devastated parent was only given the notes when police arrived at the family home in Romford later that day.

“She had been researching the San Francisco killer, the Zodiac Killer and she had been reading a lot of Dan Brown,” her mother said.

In her first letter addressed to her mother, tragic Lidia wrote: ‘Mum I am really sorry for upsetting you in this way.

“It would be natural to be upset but do not be for me, I am better now, in a better place. I am doing this for me, to escape. All of the past and the present it makes my head heavy. ‘It will be very difficult without me for a time but after this you will be okay. Think about me that I am good now. I told you how much I love you. I am sorry I care but I need to escape and I cannot wait to see what is on the other side. I love you all remain well and I will see you when you are old. Take care of you. Thank you for everything.”

The second message is addressed to those who would see her shocking gesture, protv.ro informs. “I am sorry for making you see such an ugly image. To all those who have seen me I am sorry. The people visiting this place do not come to see a dead body. I am sorry for offering such a site, go and be happy, live your lives,” Lidia wrote.

A woman who died after falling from the Whispering Gallery at St Paul’s Cathedral has on Monday been named as Lidia Dragescu.

Lidia, 23, died last Wednesday after plunging in front of visitors at the Central London landmark, thesun.co.uk informs.

The Romanian national, from Romford, Essex, has been described as a talented figure skater and an “outstanding student”.

She was studying Business at London Metropolitan University, according to City of London Police.
