Woman Suffering Postpartum Depression Commits Suicide

Inakesha BrooksProvidenciales, 12 Nov 2014 – One day before her arraignment in the case of the near drowning death of her son, Cayden; Inakesha Brooks-Amour, a woman believed to be suffering postpartum depression has reportedly committed suicide. Police say she was yesterday found overdosed on meds on a bathroom floor. Inakesha had since August been released on $50,000 bail; so she may not have been in custody where she had once been on suicide watch.

The 33 year old who hails from Grand Turk has been under enormous pressure ever since her 3-month old son Cayden was given life-saving CPR after she reportedly tried to drown him in a Riviera Isles canal on July 1st. Brooks Armour, her husband Conlan and mother Grace Ann all told police it was not the first time Inakesha had tried to hurt her son; before it had been feeding him cough syrup. Today, Inakesha was due to face charges formally in court… her husband had been given custody of the baby boy, who at last report remained unconscious at Joe DiMaggio hospital in South Florida. Grace Ann Brooks, Inakesha’s mother was charged with neglect, and like her daughter faced as much as 20 years in jail for the tragic incident.

Family in the TCI, after getting wind of the case established a fund to raise money and awareness for healthcare bills and legal fees. Family had offered that Inakesha Brooks-Armour was thrilled to be a mother and that she loved her son… again, it is believed she suffered PPD.
