I am so shocked and heartbroken.
She’d suffered years of abuse (sexual, physical, emotional, you name it) by her mum and step dad, was taken in to care, had a really horrible life. In the last few years she managed to sort herself out after going off the rails a bit, got a job, a boyfriend, her own home. I found out this morning that her boyfriend found out she was pregnant at the weekend and beat her so badly that she was in a coma then passed away this morning.
I just… I am so mad. How could anyone do such a thing. So so tragic. I’m heartbroken for her family 🙁

I am so very sorry about your friend. What a difficult start in life and a terrible ending.
Abusers often escalate their abuse during pregnancy, and in some cases that is when abuse commences: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domestic_violence_and_pregnancy

I am so utterly shocked and heartbroken for you. Your poor friend. There are sadly some people in this world that are just pure evil. Make sure you look after yourself and reach out for help if you need it as this is an utterly shocking and horrifying situation.

Why did he beat her because she was pregnant? Because he didn’t want the child or because he thought the child wasnt his? What a psycho.
Thats devastating. I’m very sorry for your loss. I hope they give him the worst sentence possible.

I am so sorry! It’s incredibly hard to understand why people can do these things to people that you love.
It’s healthy to mourn, especially when a death was as this sudden, but if you find yourself obsessing over this situation or feel like you can’t move on after a few months, you should speak to a therapist to help you work through your anger, sense of loss, sadness, and find healthy ways to cope.

I have no idea. I’m guessing because he didn’t want the baby but I don’t know.
Thank you all for the kind words. It just turns my stomach. I can’t imagine beating someone I care about so badly. I once accidentally caught my Fiance in the head with a knife and was devastated, I sobbed for ages because I’d hurt him. He wasn’t even hurt that badly, just a little scratch. I don’t know why anyone would choose to do such a thing. So so awful.

That’s like asking Why did the rattlesnake bite? It’s what they do. The “reason” her abuser beat her to death is because he is an abuser.
A tragic loss and cautionary tale.
