A MUM sent a haunting text to her mother and pleaded for help before being discovered at the bottom of a cliff.

Danyell Sinckler, 32, died last May after falling near the South Foreland Lighthouse in Saint Margaret’s Bay, Dover.

An inquest heard that the “big-hearted” teaching assistant had made several desperate attempts to call 999 before her lifeless body was discovered.

Her family has now questioned the police’s handling of the case and expressed doubts about whether she committed suicide.

The tragedy occurred after Danyell had an argument with her boyfriend, Leon Morris, at the Cramptons pub, according to a hearing at County Hall in Maidstone.

It became heated and spilled out into the parking lot, prompting Danyell to drive away.

She sent a series of messages to her friends, family, and Mr Morris over the next few hours, stating her intention to commit suicide.

“I’m thinking about ending it all,” she said in a chilling text to her mother, Stephanie Eaton.

“Where are you?” said Ms Eaton. In 20 minutes, I’ll be there.”

Danyell responded that she was in Dover, but she added, “You’ll be too late.”

Danyell dialled 999 three times and 112 twice between 9.30 and 9.40 p.m., but none of the calls were answered.

Cops were unable to determine whether this was due to a poor signal on the cliff’s edge or if she had terminated the calls before they could be answered.

Her boyfriend, on the other hand, claimed that due to poor signal, he never received the messages Danyell sent him, which included her exact location, according to the inquest.

Danyell’s mother spent the rest of the night desperately searching for her daughter, and came agonisingly close at one point.

She drove up to the gates of South Foreland Lighthouse while scouring Dover, but drove away after mistaking the entrance for a private driveway.Ms Eaton was eventually forced to return home without finding her daughter, but she waited until the next morning to report her missing because Danyell had begged her mother not to call police because she had been drinking.

Danyell’s body was discovered on the shore by a National Trust worker at 10.15 a.m. the next morning.

Despite Danyell’s history of mental health issues, her death came as a surprise to loved ones because she had recently graduated from Canterbury Christ Church University and seemed excited about her career plans, according to the inquest.

Her death was attributed to multiple injuries.

Katrina Hepburn, the area coroner for central and south east Kent, adjourned the inquest until May to consider her conclusion after the family expressed doubts about Danyell’s suicide.

They believe Danyell’s turbulent relationship with her boyfriend played a role in her death after reading messages on her phone when it was returned to them by police.

At the time of Danyell’s death, the couple had known each other for six years but had only recently reconnected romantically.

However, at the inquest, DS Kite said: “We found insufficient evidence to show a direct link between [her romantic partner’s] actions and Danyell Sinkler’s death.”

The inquest was postponed until May, when Mr Morris will be called to testify.

“Danyell would go above and beyond for people – she always had a lot of time for everyone,” Ms Eaton said after the hearing.

“She was generous, with her heart and her money. She never liked to think of anyone else being unhappy. If any of her friends were down she’d always want to get them out and have a good time.

“She was big-hearted, a lovely daughter and I was immensely proud of her getting her degree. She was a mum at a young age and she had battled all of these obstacles to get where she wanted to get to.

“She worked in the care industry with young adults with challenging behaviour and they used to really look forward to Danyell going on shift because she seemed to have quite an empathy with them.

“She had worked with elderly people as well and they really loved her, because she was cheeky and she would chat with them and have a laugh.”

Danyell spoke exclusively to The Sun in 2019 about how social media influenced her decision to spend £7,000 on cosmetic surgery.

Danyell detailed the cosmetic surgery she’d had done but said she regretted “changing myself to look like everyone else”.

After saying that she had body dysmorphia, Danyell said at the time: “Now I work out to get a fit and healthy body rather than looking for a quick solution and I limit my time on social media.

Mrs Eaton confirmed Danyell “did suffer from body dysmorphia” in an interview with KentOnline.

She added: “She never really felt she was good enough – I think like a lot of young girls nowadays.

“Social media had created that low self-worth, which is not very nice because she was absolutely beautiful.”
