Just to put some perspective on this. Some time ago, my wife was told (or at least inferred) that I had been killed in an accident in Germany. It came from official sources of a sort and not from any kind of social media, although they were few and far between back then. I do not believe that any potential grieving widow is going to be loitering on PPRuNe. I suspect she is more likely to be trying to contact people who might know the real answer to her concerns, which is what my wife did. The bottom line; this is a rumour network and not an official spokesman for the RAF or any other service. People with a passing aquaintance or even genuine friends will want to know the rumours but, if they are any kind of normal human being, they won't be phoning the next of kin to pass on those rumours. RIP
