The distraught mother of Daisy Coleman has taken her own life four months after her daughter died by suicide.
Daisy, 23, who starred in the Netflix show Audrie & Daisy, died in August from a self-inflicted gun shot wound while on a FaceTime call to her boyfriend.
Now tragically, her mother Melinda, 58, was found dead on Sunday evening, SafeBae – a s.e.x assault prevention group started by Daisy – announced on Instagram.
SafeBae, a youth-led sexual assault prevention group created by Daisy Coleman, made the announcement to their Instagram page.
The post reads:
“We are in shock and disbelief to share with our SafeBae family, that we lost Melinda Coleman to suicide this evening.
“The bottomless grief of losing her husband, Tristan and Daisy was more than she could face most days.
“Melinda was a gifted veterinarian, devoted mother and wife, and talented body builder. More than anything, she loved and believed in her children. It is no accident that she created some of the most gifted, passionate, and resilient children.
“Our hearts are with Logan and Charlie. There are no words for our sadness, only that if you are struggling with trauma or depression, you are not alone.”
Just hours before taking her life, Melinda posted a series of posts and pictures of her late daughter, Daisy to her Facebook page.
On August 5, 23-year-old Daisy committed suicide after being candid about her traumatic sexual assault in the 2016 Netflix documentary “Audrie & Daisy.”
Daisy’s body was discovered by authorities after her mother, Melinda, asked them to perform a welfare check.
