Four months after Netflix star Daisy Coleman’s death, her mother also takes her own life

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 yesterday evening, SafeBae - a s.e.x assault prevention group started by Daisy - announced on Instagram.

The post read: "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."

The statement also mentioned Melinda's two surviving sons Logan and Charlie.

It added: "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.

This is the latest tragedy to strike the Coleman family after Daisy's brother Tristan Ash Coleman, died in a car crash in June 2018.
