A Linden family is now trying to come to grips with their loss following the suicide of a young mother of two. The body of Crystal Couchman, 30, was discovered hanging in the bedroom of her home at Fair’s Rust, Mackenzie, Region 10 (Upper Demerara- Berbice) around 18:00h on Saturday.
A relative of the deceased said the distraught family is uncertain as to what drove the woman to end her life but pointed out that she was recently separated from her child’s father.
Apart from that, the relative noted that Couchman, who was employed at the Esso Gas station in Linden had appeared normal and happy earlier on Saturday.
According to the relative, other family went out, leaving the woman at home, but upon their return during the evening they made the gruesome discovery.
Couchman leaves to mourn her children, ages 1 and 5.
