Three-Year-Old Survives On Bread, Butter For Four Days After Mother Commits Suicide


A UK court has heard how a three-year-old girl survived on only bread and butter for up to four days after her mother committed suicide.

According to Metro UK, the girl’s mother, Aimee Louise Evans, 28, from Port Talbot, South Wales, was found dead at her home in Dalton Road on April 7 this year and the toddler was at home, when she committed suicide.

Prosecuting Counsel, Clive Morris, said the little girl was looking unkempt, when police arrived. He said, “The child had been there for three to four days and she was unkempt. She was taken to the hospital to be checked by a paediatrician.”

PC Morris said officers believe she survived by eating loaves of bread and some butter.

Ms Evans’ son was staying with his father in the Bridgend area at the time.

PC Morris said Ms Evans had sent a text to her mum, Julie Evans, on April 4, asking her to collect her daughter because she was ‘ending it’, to which Julie Evans replied by saying ‘do not be daft’ and asking her daughter what the matter was.

That was the last time the two of them spoke, PC Morris added.
