Mother, 28, was discovered dead on Christmas Day, just before her son, 9, turned nine, and now he needs help. Jordan Carter was found dead at home after police were called to her property at 8.30 pm on December 25 the day before her birthday. Let’s find out what happened to her and why she took her own life in detail.
Why Jordan Carter took her life?
On Christmas Day, a “larger than life” mother took her own life, according to her family, who gathered to support her nine-year-old son. At around 8.30 p.m., Jordan Carter, 28, was tragically discovered at her Plymouth, Devon, home. Police confirmed the death is not being treated as suspicious.
Cheryl said her daughter had “suffered with mental health issues for many years” and she is now urging anyone who is struggling to reach out. She said: People do care, and if people tried reaching out, people are willing to help.
Jordan’s mother, Cheryl Carter’s Tribute
Now Jordan’s mother, Cheryl Carter, has paid tribute to her “large-than-life” daughter who “loved” her son, Kai aged nine. Cheryl is raising funds for Kai to put in a trust fund, so he can have access to it when he is 18. Cheryl said she and her family have been “overwhelmed by the generosity of people”.
So far, £1,488 has been raised for Kai. Cheryl said: “Jordan was a larger-than-life character, her two loves were horses and she started riding at the age of four. And of course, her son Kai. And my family is overwhelmed by the generosity of people, especially with times being so difficult for most financially, with rising living costs, and of course Christmas, however, people still did donate.
Which has restored my faith in human nature. No words could ever express my appreciation for all the donations and heartfelt messages at such a tragic time. I will be forever grateful.”
The GoFundMe page reads: “Hi my name is Cheryl, I’m fundraising for my grandson Kai, whose mum tragically took her own life on Christmas Day.
“All donations will be put in a trust fund for him. If anyone can help no matter how little it would be very much appreciated. Many many thanks.”
