A 53 year old woman live streamed a video of herself taking her own life on Facebook. At least 1 of the people who were watching called for help.
Merilee Joyce Turner, 53, of Cudjoe Key broadcast the troubling footage on Wednesday night, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said.
Turner died after several people viewed her wounding herself in real time, sheriff’s office spokesperson Adam Linhardt said.
At least one person called authorities, but they did not make it to her home in time.
‘Foul play is not suspected,’ Linhardt told the Miami Herald. ‘We’re not looking for anybody. It’s obviously self-inflicted wounds but there could have been other factors involved.’
The video was removed from her profile by Facebook.
From the looks of Turner’s remaining posts on her page, it appeared as though she was the life of the party.
Many images show her laughing and smiling wide, often surrounded by lots of other people.
Turner is listed on the account as having been in a relationship with Kevin Slamon, who is originally from Killashee, Longford, Ireland, since what appears to be at least February 2017.
Someone who viewed the livestream where Turner ended it all called sheriff’s deputies, one of whom watched the video as well.
After receiving he call, authorities responded to the home of Turner, who was known by friends as ‘Mouse,’ at around 10.15pm on Wednesday.
‘EMS arrived moments later’ and pronounced the woman dead, a sheriff’s report said.
