3-year-old girl survived alone at home for 4 days after mum hung herself

A three-year-old was found surviving on bread and butter up to four days after her mother killed herself, an inquest heard.

Mother-of-two Aimee Louise Evans, from Port Talbot, south Wales, was found dead at her home address on April 7 this year.

The inquest heard that when police arrived at the property they found the 28-year-old hanged in a bedroom.

PC Clive Morris, of South Wales Police, told the inquest at Swansea Civic Centre today that Ms Evans’ three-year-old daughter was also in the house and was looking unkempt.

Mr Morris said:

‘I became increasingly aware of the three-year-old’s wellbeing – the child had been there for three to four days and she was unkempt.

‘She was taken to hospital to be checked by a paediatrician.’

PC Morris said police believed the little girl survived by eating loaves of bread and some butter.

Ms Evans’ son was staying with his natural father at the time.

The inquest heard the single mum was last seen alive on April 3, when she went to her mum’s house.

She had been drinking, but wasn’t drunk, and was checking the Facebook profile of a man she had been seeing on and off.

PC Morris said there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding Ms Evans’ death, adding that she had no history of mental health problems.

The inquest heard the mother-of-two used to drink most evenings and had been subject to domestic violence in previous relationships.
