(Scroll down for video) A young mother who suffered from depression, strapped her son to her back before jumping off a steep cliff, police in Australia said.
Sydney police said that a search and rescue team has found the dead bodies of 25-year-old Jasmine Riley and her 2-year-old son Braxon, after receiving calls about a woman and a child jumping off a cliff.
On Facebook, Riley wrote that she can’t wait to wish her father a happy birthday on the other side. Family members revealed that Riley suffered from postpartum depression and domestic violence.
Riley revealed that she made the decision to commit suicide because her partner told her that he can no longer cope with her depression.
She also slammed her critics in advance, saying that jumping off the cliff is the bravest thing she has ever done in her life.
Braxon’s father said that he is devastated over the loss of his beautiful son. Riley’s suicide raised eyebrows as she owned several horses and cars, and had a great job.
Investigators said that they are not treating the deaths as suspicious.
