“In May 2016 the problems got worse and she canceled going on holiday because she was worried that she would bring me down.”
“It was clear that Faye was not in a good place and she said she felt like a burden. She decided to move out and go home where she would feel more comfortable.
‘It was very hard because we loved each other more than anything else in the world.
‘After that, she told me she was having thoughts about wrapping her car around a tree or putting tablets out on the table but she explained to me that she would not do it and that it was just a bad moment.
‘I had planned to see her that Friday on my return from Scotland for a meal. When she sent me those text messages on the 29th of June I knew they were serious and I called the police to express my concerns.’
