A CNN television anchor, known for her aggressive on-air questioning, has been dragged into a story she was pursuing after one of her guests committed suicide shortly before an interview was broadcast.



Nancy Grace, whose eponymous, nightly programme describes itself as "television's only justice themed / interview / debate show" has refused to accept any responsibility for the death of Melinda Duckett, a 21-year-old woman who shot herself after being interviewed by Grace, a former criminal prosecutor, about the disappearance of her two-year-old son.



Grace banged her desk and asked Duckett repeatedly about her whereabouts on the day her son, Trenton, vanished in an interview recorded on September 7. By the time the footage was broadcast the next day, Duckett had killed herself with her grandfather's gun.
