A teenager took her own life after having accidently sent her boyfriend a text revealing that she had slept with someone else.
Charlotte Guy, 17, who intended to send a message to her friend to confess, accidentally sent the message to her boyfriend, Jack Hurst, who is 20 years of age.
Soon after realizing what she had done, she messaged Jack again saying: "Goodbye. Please forgive me," which was followed by a final message: "I love you -- knowing that you hate me is enough."
Hurst called the police after receiving the text and used her Snapchat account to pinpoint her exact location. But Charlotte was found hanging dead from a tree in Wigan, Great Manchester, where she had been studying health care.
Jack told the inquest: "On [Sept 24] she text me to say that she wanted to talk. I said I was busy doing something and I would speak to her later.
"After this she sent me a Snapchat message that was meant for her friend but that she had sent to me instead.
"The Snapchat referenced her sleeping with someone on ... Saturday night. She told me that it wasn’t for me, and apologized and said she was a horrible person.
"She said that she wanted to talk and explain but I said that I didn’t feel like talking and to message me to say what she wanted to say.
"At [just after 5 o'clock] I got a long text message for her starting with ‘okay I think I get the point.’
"This message concerned me and I tried to call her but she didn’t answer. I got another message at [5:13] saying 'it doesn’t matter. Goodbye. Please forgive me.'
"The last message I got from her [one minute later] said: 'I love you, knowing that you hate me is enough.'"
The previous evening, Charlotte went out with her friends, Stephanie Bradshaw and Kieran Ashcroft.
Kieran said: "She told me that she had been seeing someone called Jack Hurst for about two years but they had since split up.
"She didn’t seem upset about it and seemed really happy the entire night. The next day I dropped her off home at around 6am and she sent me a message later on.
"Charlotte told me that she had been having a good night, and seemed happy when I dropped her off the next morning."
Both of Charlotte’s parents confessed that their daughter had tried to harm herself on at least one previous occasion.
On her breakup with Jack, her brother Dean said: "She was upset, but then we watched the films and when she went home she seemed happier."
Recording a narrative conclusion to the situation, coroner Alan Walsh said: "Charlotte was 17 years of age when she died.
"She was at college, and her trigger points were work related stress of both college and work and domestic life with her boyfriend.
"That may well have been a factor to affect her state of mind. She was in a relationship with Jack Hurst for the best part of two years.
He then added: "I believed she was a troubled young lady. The effect it will have on her family and friends is beyond imagination."
