To share with our SafeBae family, we are in shock and disbelief that we lost Melinda Coleman to suicide this evening.
The grief of losing her husband, Tristan, and Daisy, was more than she had been able to face for most days.
Melinda was a talented veterinarian, a devoted mother and wife, and a talented bodybuilder. She loved and believed in her children more than anything It is no accident that some of the most talented, passionate, and resilient children were created by her.
Our hearts are still with Logan and Charlie. There seem to be no words for our sadness, only that if you are struggling with trauma or depression, you are not alone.
Just hours before Melinda took her life, she posted to her Facebook page a series of posts and photos of her late daughter, Daisy.
On August 5, 23-year-old Daisy committed suicide in the 2016 Netflix documentary “Audrie & Daisy.” after being candid about her traumatic sexual assault.
The authorities discovered Daisy’s body after her mother, Melinda, asked them to conduct a welfare check.
