AN EX-MODEL phoned her boyfriend to say she was “not right for this world” shortly before taking her own life, an inquest heard.
Sammi Kearsey was found hanged by a dog walker in a park near her parent’s home in November last year following a long battle with bulimia and depression.
The 29-year-old former model’s family said “failings” in the mental health service, who were aware of previous suicide attempts, led to her death.
They also questioned why she was not detained by medical experts.
She tried to take her own life twice last year – in February and August. However she had become optimistic about the future after her relationship with boyfriend Daniel Coomber begun nearing an end, the inquest heard.
Coroner Katy Skerrett heard that she struggled with drink and in 2015 drank a bottle of gin a day.
The inquest was told that she was “moderately drunk” at the time of death, with 162mg of alcohol in her blood recorded.
Ms Kearsey had lived with Mr Coomber in Portsmouth, Hants, but moved back in with her parents in Cheltenham two days before taking her own life.
She returned with all her belongings after saying she had split up with Mr Coomber.
Ms Kearsey told her parents of her plans for a fresh start in Bristol.
But Mr Coomber told the inquest he received “angry and upset” messages and phone calls from her the following day.
He said: “She was getting despondent about the idea of moving to Bristol.
“She expressed suicidal feelings and was was being evasive – she wouldn’t tell me where she was.
“The last contact was later in the evening when she said ‘I can’t do it anymore – I’ve felt like this since I was 13 -I’m not right for this world.
“I knew she was outside because I could hear wind. I felt she was intending to take her life.”
Following the inquest in Gloucester parents John and Jan Kearsey said their daughter should have been detained under the Mental Health Act.
Mr Kearsey said: “One of the failings as a family we feel strongly about is that we have a national database for the health of our vehicles but we don’t have a database for the health of our people.
“To not have a database in this day and age is deplorable.
“How many people does it take and how many attempted suicides before somebody is sectioned?
“It would save the NHS a lot of money and would reduce the strain on services.”
Summing up, the coroner said: “It’s clear this 29-year-old had a long battle with her anxiety and bulimia.
“She took herself off to a secluded woodland and took the tragic steps that she did.
“It may well have been a fleeting intention but I am satisfied that in that moment she reached that fleeting intention.”
