Dad-to-be devastated after pregnant 28-year-old wife who was suffering from bulimia stops replying to texts and commits suicide
Fitness enthusiast Imogen Evans was found dead at the home she shared with her partner Michael Stokes
An expectant father's girlfriend, who battled with bulimia, reportedly has revealed about the heartbreaking moment he found out that his pregnant girlfriend had killed herself. Fitness enthusiast Imogen Evans was found dead at her home that she shared with her partner Michael Stokes earlier this year.
At an inquest last month it was revealed that Imogen had battled mental issues throughout her life and was struggling wth bulimia, Wales Online reported.
On the day of her suicide, Imogen had told Michael she was working from home, and had recently revealed to him that they were expecting a child. Imogen who had represented Wales in both netball and rowing, was six weeks pregnant at the time of her death.
The couple had also been planning to buy a house before police officers arrived at his office to give him the devastating news that his girlfriend had taken her own life.
Michael said: "We were buying a house, she was pregnant – I never would have thought for a second [her death] was anything that would have occurred."
On the day of her death, both Michael and Imogen had been exchanging messages all day, where she said she missed him. However, he started to grow worried when Imogen stopped replying. Michael texted her around 20 times, which included a message which read: "Can you please tell me that you're not lying in a heap on the floor?"
Later in the day, he was contacted by the police, who came to his office to tell him that Imogen's mother Susan Evans had discovered her body. Susan had previously received a text from Imogen telling her that she was going to remove herself from the face of the earth.
Imogen's diary was discovered after her death, which revealed that Imogen had written about having suicidal thoughts while detailing her struggles with bulimia, anxiety, and depression. Michael, who works in sales, said that he knew Imogen had suffered from anxiety, depression, and bulimia as she had been open about her mental health from the beginning.
