Family fury after mum-of-nine Jodey Whiting is ruled to have taken her own life after inquest hears how she had her benefits stopped
……………..”The 42-year-old’s inquest heard Jodey took her own life after her benefits were stopped because she missed a health review – despite never seeing the appointment letter.
Plagued by ill health, including a brain cyst and a curved spine, she could barely make it through her Stockton home’s front door.
And days after her body was found near a suicide note, her family received another DWP letter confirming the benefit cut – despite Joy already telling staff she had died.
“I blame the DWP for her death,” said grieving Joy. “The DWP has blood on their hands over my Jodey.”
