Fraudsters set up fake funding page for ex-Jeremy Kyle Show staffer who died in apparent suicide – The Sun

FRAUDSTERS tried to profit from the apparent suicide of an ex-Jeremy Kyle researcher with a fake online funding page.

Natasha Reddican, 31, lost her job when the controversial show went off air. She was found dead by her boyfriend at his home in Manchester on Thursday.

But pal Laura Hey-Casale was sickened to find her own name and pic on a misspelled plea for a “Natasha Reddican memorable fund”.

It was messaged to her contacts causing her to have to post to stop anyone donating money.

She wrote: “Why someone would personally target me and my friends to gain profit from her death is beyond me.”

The page had been disabled last night.

ITV bosses pulled the plug on Kyle’s daytime talk show in May last year following the apparent suicide of guest Steve Dymond, who failed a love cheat lie detector test.

Natasha joined ITV in 2012 and worked as a runner and researcher on Kyle’s show.

As a producer, she was responsible for booking guests but insiders say she had no part in getting Mr Dymond on to the programme.
