The death of a 28-year-old woman from Chiswick last year has been ruled as suicide by a Coroner in East Sussex.

Suzannah or Suzy Brown’s car was found near Beachy Head after she was reported missing. Suzy had attended the University of Sussex which is 20 miles away and it is thought she may have been familiar with the spot. A search involving the UK Coastguard and the RNLI eventually recovered her body from the sea after being hampered by thick fog.

Suzy was a public relations professional who worked as a senior account manager for Grayling based in Kew. She has just signed off work with stress and her boyfriend, Scott Poulton, had found a ripped up suicide note in a kitchen bin shortly after reporting her missing.

In a statement given to the inquest Mr Poulton said, “She was in good spirits. It was a busy time at work and she was finding it hard but she always seemed upbeat and positive.

“For reasons I will never understand, I believe she took her own life.”

A PR company where Suzy formerly worked has said that they will naming a bursary after her. They said, “It has been said that no-one truly dies until their name is no longer spoken. In our part of keeping Suzy alive we are establishing a Bursary in her name, which will help one young entrant to public relations, every year, start their career. The chosen applicant will be paid, trained and treated as a permanent member of the Mason Williams’ team for 12 months. Maybe we will unearth another star like Suzy.”
