Daisy Coleman (23) was a strong-headed woman. The beauty, unfortunately, went through a major trauma in her life. She was raped just at the age of 14 when she attended a party in Maryville, Missouri. Subject of Netflix documentary, Audrie & Daisy, the star has died by suicide last night.
The unfortunate piece of news has been confirmed by her mother, Melinda Coleman. She understood the pain her daughter went through. Melinda even wrote a heart-breaking note on how she wishes she could have saved Daisy.
“My daughter Catherine Daisy Coleman committed suicide tonight. If you saw crazy/messages and posts it was because I called the police to check on her. She was my best friend and amazing daughter,” Melinda wrote. “I think she had to make it seem like I could live without her. I can’t. I wish I could have taken the pain from her! She never recovered from what those boys did to her and it’s just not fair. My baby girl is gone,” wrote Melinda Coleman.
Daisy Coleman, the sexual assault survivor even worked on a national campaign in 2017 – SafeBAE (Safe Before Anyone Else). The motive was to help others from facing any physical or sexual violence.
The organization too paid a tribute to Daisy. In a detailed note on Facebook, they mentioned all the efforts put by the Audrie & Daisy star.
“As all of our supporters know, Daisy has fought for many years to both heal from her assault and prevent future sexual violence among teens. She was our sister in this work and much of the driving force behind it,” safeBAE’s statement read in part. “We are shattered and shocked by her passing from suicide. She had been in EMDR therapy for 2 years, working on her triggers and healing from the many traumas in her life. She had many coping demons and had been facing and overcoming them all, but as many of you know, healing is not a straight path or any easy one. She fought longer and harder than we will ever know,” read their statement.
May Daisy Coleman’s soul rest in peace.
