A mother-of-four has been found dead just hours after sharing a Facebook status suggesting she had been called a “fat ugly c***”
Alli MacDonnell, 36, who had four children aged 2 to 15, took to social media yesterday to write about the verbal abuse:
Why is it ok for a man to call a girl a fat ugly c***?????? Seriously new level of pushing someone to the edge.
Facebook users replied the post, telling the autism awareness campaigner that it “is not OK” and urging her to rise above the abuse.
A short while after sharing the Facebook post, the mom was found dead. Though, it is not clear if the post was linked to her death.
Friends of the model, who was signed with Andrea Roche’s AR Model Agency, took to social media hours later to mourn her.
Stephanie Whelan wrote,
Absolutely devastating. What a beauty inside and out. No matter how beautiful we knew you were it’s how you feel inside that matters.
You were a very proud mammy and you children will grow up knowing how strong their mammy was and make you so proud.
RIP beautiful. Shine bright like the diamond you were.

I couldn’t and wouldn’t do this yesterday, because there were no words.
With a heavy heart, Ireland just lost one of the funniest, most stubbornly bold and loud women I have ever known, one of the first models I ever worked with, ten years you have tried to throw boldness on me.
Thinking of your gorgeous family, your amazing kids, and anyone you touched along the journey. You will be forever missed.
Autism Ireland CEO Samantha Judge mourned the mother, saying,
Here at Autism Ireland, we are very shocked and saddened at the loss of Alli. Alli was an amazing mother, a beautiful woman, inside and out.
She was a very strong voice for autism as a mother, and she was so supportive of her children and of the charity.
She was truly an inspirational person and we are all grieving a huge loss today.
