Melinda Coleman Death –Dead-Obituaries : Mother of rape survivor Daisy Coleman, has died by suicide.
Matthew Barnett may have gotten away with brutally raping a 14 year old girl, but he’s going to be haunted by Daisy and her family for the rest of his life. Good. #AudrieandDaisy ❤️#DaisyColeman ❤️#MelindaColeman ❤️ https://t.co/eKX8aOAw98

The following are some tributes posted on social media to honor the life and the legacy of the deceased.
One of my 1st stories as a national correspondent in 2012 was on the fallout for Daisy Coleman after accusing high school classmates of sexual assault. Sadly Daisy never recovered & killed herself in August. Now her mother took her life. Just devastating https://t.co/GsVltglPW5

Daisy Coleman’s mom taking her life has me in shambles. Her daughter was raped. Her house set on fire. Justice system completely failing her & her daughter. Lost her son & husband. the result? She took her life at 58 years old 4 months after her 21 yr old daughter did the same.
