After her amputations, Mr Carpenter said his wife “put all her effort into regaining her life” and “she amazed us as a family”. However, he noticed “a sudden decline” in Jayne’s mental health in Novermber 2019. That’s when she started to drink alcohol more often.

Jayne felt that the Covid pandemic stopped her from enjoying things that were important to her. From toxicology reports, it shows that she had a large quantity of alcohol in her system, but the police said they found no suicide note.
