‘We are in shock and disbelief to share with our SafeBae family, that we lost Melinda Coleman to suicide this evening,’ the post read.
‘The bottomless grief of losing her husband, Tristan and Daisy was more than she could face most days.
‘Melinda was a gifted veterinarian, devoted mother and wife, and talented body builder. More than anything, she loved and believed in her children. It is no accident that she created some of the most gifted, passionate, and resilient children.
‘Our hearts are with Logan and Charlie. There are no words for our sadness, only that if you are struggling with trauma or depression, you are not alone.’
In August, 23-year-old Daisy committed suicide after being candid about her traumatic sexual assault in the 2016 Netflix documentary ‘Audrie & Daisy.’
Daisy’s body was discovered by authorities after her mother, Melinda, asked them to perform a welfare check.
‘She was my best friend,’ mom Melinda said of Daisy, pictured together above
