Speaking at King’s Lynn County Court, Turton’s family disclosed that she was scared that her boyfriend would dump her eight weeks into the pregnancy if she decided to keep the child.
The deceased’s 52-year-old mother, Hammond-Grant, 52, said in a statement : “He made it known to her that he wasn’t interested in having any more [children].
“If she did not get rid of it he would dump her. This is why she felt as down as she did.”
Meanwhile, the boyfriend told the court that Turton, who worked as a waitress supervisor, became ‘unwell and sad’ when she thought he was seeing somecfone else.
Her suicide attempt on February 13 last year followed a row with her boyfriend in which he declared he was ‘leaving’, Metro UK reports.
But he told the court he only meant leaving her flat.
A neighbour called the emergency services at 9.30pm but got to the Papworth specialist heart hospital in Cambridge around past 10pm and died at 7.30pm the following evening, February 14, 2014.
Cassie’s mother believes medics could have saved her daughter’s life had they identified her case as a suicide and sent an emergency ambulance.
She said: “I still have my beliefs that if the ambulance turned up and if the hospital would have treated Cassie as an urgent case it would be different.”
