A mother struggling after her two children were ‘taken away’ from her left one final Facebook message before ending her life.
Emma Thomas’ two children, aged five and nine, were placed in the permanent care of her ex-boyfriend by social services, and her one-year-old son has been in and out of hospital due to a severe liver condition.
Her current boyfriend, Lee Walsh, found her body in her home on March 12.
That same day, the 28-year-old wrote a cryptic Facebook post, saying: “Am done u wont my kids u got them u wont get any1 that love there kids like i do cant do it any more bye [sic].”
An inquest into her death revealed she made an attempt on her life weeks before her death.
The court also heard that she was on anti-depressants, and was having relationship troubles, including ‘violent’ incidents.
Walsh said in court: “I can't believe Emma did what she did. She left my baby boy.”
