Mother Killed Herself After Ex Ignored Her Messages Asking For Help

A desperate teenage mother took her own life after her ex-boyfriend ignored texts she sent him warning she was about to end her own life.

Chloe Hillier, 17, sent her former sweetheart 37 messages some of which read: ‘I can’t do this anymore. I hang myself on Friday.’

She also asked him whether it was possible to buy rope from a garage.

A court heard Chloe was later found hanged in a park near her home, having told staff at a mother and baby unit she felt ‘sh***y’.

Police inspected the mother’s ex-boyfriend for probable charges of helping and supporting her suicide but no action was taken against him.

When questioned by detectives he refused to give up Chloe’s passcode to her phone.

But Blackpool Coroner’s Court heard officers later accessed the device anyway and found the texts, plus photos showing phony self-harm marks on a girl’s body. They could not be sure the pictures were of Chloe.

A coroner cleared the boy of offence at Chloe’s inquiry on Thursday.

Recording a conclusion of suicide, Coroner Alan Wilson said: ‘With regard to her ex-boyfriend and him aiding or abetting in the suicide, while it is clear there were text messages between them it is not enough that it satisfies the necessary standard of proof.

‘There may have been issues in terms of morality with regards to a lack of response to the text messages that he received but he could have had no way of assessing or believing or could have expected that Chloe would act in the way that she did. I cannot determine criminal liability.

‘The decision of this court is to consider evidence into the sad and tragic circumstances of Chloe’s death of Chloe Hiller.

‘It is clear that her relationship was having an impact on her and the issues contributed to her intention to end her life.’

Chloe’s mum Louise Hillier told the court she believed her former lover, who cannot be named for legal reasons, used to beat her.

‘I noticed that she was keeping the curtains shut, sitting in the dark and not going out. She wasn’t wearing make up and her hair was greasy.

‘I believe her ex-boyfriend did used to beat her. She had bruises. She would tell me that it was a door handle or things like that but it really did affect her. I was so concerned about it that I reported it to the police,’ she said.

Chloe was found dead by a passerby on March 30 after two days of text messages between her and her ex-boyfriend, in which she threatened to harm herself.

The teenager was captured on CCTV at a Texaco garage in the hours before her death. She had also been to her GP and told him she was having trouble sleeping and was prescribed anti-depressants.

Detective Constable Inspector Lisa Wilson told the hearing: ‘Chloe’s former boyfriend refused to give the code to her phone, but we were able to get the information from the phone regardless. On March 28 and March 29, there were periods of conversation between him and Chloe.

‘On the 28th there were a series of messages between them at 2.15am to 3am on the 28th. There were 53 text messages, 16 from him and the remainder from Chloe to him.

‘At 2:26am he sent Chloe a message talking about the time she told people she threatened to overdose and there were a series of further text messages in quick succession, in which she insulted him and made derogatory comments to him without a reply.

‘There were also text messages to him that regarding her hanging herself and taking her own life. One of the messages read “I can’t do this anymore” and she also made a reference to “when I hang myself on Friday”. It was significant what she was saying on the 28th and the 29th. It appeared that Chloe had been researching knots and nooses and matters of that nature.’

Chloe had been staying at a mother and baby unit and, at times, with her mum.

The officer added: ‘Her mum said that she was engrossed with her phone instead of watching her favourite TV programme and left the house at around 3pm, saying she was going to go to her ex boyfriend’s house.

‘The sales assistant who sold her the tow rope asked her what it was for but she said that it was for securing a bouncy castle. They even laughed together and she seemed in high spirits.
