Dr Sara Gilks

A 32-year-old beauty and special constable has taken her own life after her boyfriend ended their relationship, an inquest heard. Dr Sara Gilks, 32, from Huddersfield, who had enjoyed a distinguished academic career and worked for West Yorkshire Police, was said to have her ‘whole life ahead of her’.


According to Daily Mail: An inquest at Bradford Coroner’s Court heard that Ms Gilks, who had a history of depressive episodes, had been ‘very upset’ when her boyfriend decided to end their relationship after booking a skiing holiday for them.

She sent text messages reading ‘he has absolutely destroyed me’ and ‘he was so loving towards me and then he does this’.

The court heard the special constable found it hard to cope with the aftermath of relationship break-ups when her self-confidence would evaporate.

A statement made by her friend Diane Hirst, which was read to the court, said: ‘At 1pm on Thursday, March 24 I received a message from her that her boyfriend had split up with her and she was ‘proper gutted’. She was very upset.

‘It was clear that she was so shocked by what had happened. He had booked a skiing holiday for them. The next morning she said she couldn’t stop crying.’

Two days later, Diane said she had tried contacting Ms Gilks but there was no answer. She let herself into Sara’s apartment later that night,

Ms Hirst said: ‘I went into her bedroom. She was wearing her pyjamas. I grabbed her arm, it was cold. There were packets of tablets on the bed.

‘I was so shocked and upset I couldn’t speak. I never thought she would do such a thing.’

Det Con Simon Thomas said a review of her mobile phone history showed she had been researching on the internet ways of taking her own life.

Toxicology tests revealed she had taken a fatal overdose of a prescribed medicine. She had also written a suicide note.

Ms Gilks graduated from the University of Huddersfield with first class honours in forensic and analytic chemistry in 2009 before gaining a PhD from the University of Manchester. She then worked as a researcher at the University of Manchester.
