Meanwhile, 54-year-old Ashley recently reported that 75-year-old Naomi died from a gunshot wound.
Although she acknowledged that her family was “uncomfortable” about disclosing certain information, she explained that they wanted to monitor the flow of information about her death before the autopsy was published.
Ashley said: “She used a weapon and my mother used a firearm.
“So this is information that we are very uncomfortable sharing, but we understand that we are in a situation where if we don’t say it, someone else will.”
Ashley explained that she was chosen to represent the family to discuss her mother’s death, and to highlight the importance of seeking help.
She added: “My mother knew she was seen, and she was heard in agony, and she was taken home.
“When we talk about mental illness, it’s important to be clear and distinguish between our loved one and the illness. It’s very real, and it’s a lie, it’s savagery. “
