A mother who endured the pain of seeing her son die in a house fire two weeks ago has died of a suspected suicide.
Eight days after her son Lucas died from injuries sustained from a late-night blaze UK woman Kelly-Anne Carter was found dead on a property just metres away from the family home in Sandbach, Cheshire, reports The Mirror.
Local police are reportedly not treating the death as suspicious.
Lucas was Kelly-Anne's only child and Offley Primary School, where Lucas was a student, said his funeral was due to be held on Friday.
"We now learn that Kelly-Anne has also died making this so much harder to bear for the family and all who knew them," a school statement said.
"This is a very difficult time for the family and for Offley Primary School as we try to comprehend what has happened and support the children, staff and the school community at this distressing time."
