A 29-year-old woman killed herself six days before her mother was found hanged. It has been revealed that the young girl was struggling after a break-up before her tragic death. . Charlotte Dunne took her life at home in Wilton, Wiltshire, on June 10, and her mother Beverley Dickenson was found hanged on June 17 on the Earl of Pembroke’s Wilton Estate.
Miss Dunne was said to be distraught after splitting up with a girlfriend after a four-year relationship, a family friend has said, adding her mother ‘couldn’t live without her’.
Mrs Dickenson was found dead by her husband David in a garage on the grounds of the 14,500-acre Wilton estate, where she worked as a gardener.
Charlotte’s father Neil Buckley said his daughter ‘was loved by everybody’ but had been down recently because she split with her partner and the death of her beloved grandmother.
He told MailOnline: ‘Four days before it happened she said she was going to get a new job and that she was trying to get on with life after her break up’.
He added: ‘There’s something in her final hours that pushed her over the edge’.
Speaking from his terraced home in Salisbury, Mr Buckley, 52, said: ‘Charlotte was just a typical 29 year old girl.
‘It was the relationship problems that did it. She had split up with her partner. They were together four years. They were happy, but they had their bad times’.
An inquest at Salisbury, Wiltshire, was told Charlotte died from hanging at her home in the evening on June 10 after being found by her family. She was identified by her mother Mrs Dickenson.
Beverley Dickenson’s inquest heard she died from hanging after being found in a garage near her home by her husband at just after dawn on June 17.
Mr Buckley also revealed that police have her phone to piece together what drove her to kill herself.
Charlotte’s bereft friends have raised more than £5,000 towards her funeral.
Samantha Stephens, who set up the fundraiser with an original goal of £3,000, said: ‘Charlotte was caring, kind, funny and beautiful and I know that we will all miss her deeply. It is so important now to cherish the wonderful memories we shared with her, and to remember that this isn’t goodbye forever.’
