A Hove lawyer who was jailed for spitting and hurling racist abuse at a flight attendant who refused to serve her wine has been found dead at the bottom of Beachy Head.
Simone Burns, 50, was jailed in April for six months after pleading guilty to being drunk on an aircraft and assault by beating.
She was released on licence in May but less than two weeks later was found dead at the foot of the cliffs.
A Sussex Police spokesman said: “The body of a woman found at Beachy Head on June 1 has been identified as 50-year-old Simone Burns from Hove.
“The death is not being treated as suspicious and the next of kin have been informed.
“The matter has been passed to the coroner’s officer.”
Ms Burns’ tirade, which came after she was refused a fourth bottle of wine, was filmed by another passenger, who posted it on Twitter.
She called staff on board the Air India flight “Indian money-grabbing c****”, described herself as an international criminal lawyer for the Palestinian people and shouted: “I have done so much for you f****** Indians and f****** Pakistanis. You should be grateful to me.”
