A WOMAN told her mother ‘I will always love you’ on the day she fell to her death from a bridge, an inquest has heard.

Domanique Turner, 32, was found seriously injured under a footbridge over the A33, between Lillymill Chine and Great Binfields Road, at around 10.30pm on Thursday, 21 September.

Police officers and ambulance crews attended the scene and tried to resuscitate Domanique, but she was pronounced dead at 11.34pm.

An inquest into her death was heard on Wednesday 22 November at Basingstoke Magistrates Court.

The court heard how Domanique, who had a history of mental health issues and was diagnosed with split-personality disorder, was particularly struggling at the time and had confided in a friend, Donna, leading up to her death.

Donna told the court that Domanique had told her she often thought of “ending it” while walking across the bridge over the A33 on her way to and from work.The court also heard how Domanique’s last text message to Donna said: “That bridge is calling my name...”

In a statement to the court, Domanique’s mother, Michelle Turner, said: “Domanique visited my house a few weeks before she died and there were no warning signs that anything was wrong.

“She did struggle with her mental health, but she always called me if there was something wrong, she told me she only had to hear my voice for her to feel better. On September 21, Dom asked me to call her and she said to me “Mum, I love you, I will always love you.””

Michelle asked Domanique where she was, and she replied: “I’m on a bridge”, she then hung up the phone and did not pick it up again when Michelle tried to call her back.

Michelle added: “I thought she was just being silly, but something told me it was not right.”

Michelle called Domanique’s partner Aaron Nethercliffe who told Michelle it was not good news.

Following Domanique’s death, a number of flowers were laid on the footbridge above where Domanique was found.

Delivering a verdict of suicide, the North East Hampshire coroner Andrew Bradley said: “A suicide is a difficult experience, it never goes away but fades and then does eventually get easier.”
