A homeless young mum of four has been found dead while living in the streets. Tragically, she was discovered inside the tent she had been sleeping in.
Homeless Dublin mum of four, Janet Jackson, has tragically been found dead in south Dublin on Saturday, according to Dublin Live.
The mum was discovered in the early hours by Gardai (the Irish police), in the area of Clondalkin.
In preparation for the Coroners Court, a post mortem is being carried out.
Since the untimely death of Janet has been announced, tributes have flooded in for the beloved mum who was only in her 30s.
Janet’s sister has confirmed the heartbreaking news on social media and has stated that she’s in shock that her big sister has been taken away from her.
She wrote: “I can’t take this. Whoever hurt and took my sister away from me will pay for this. My big sister, I love you so much and I just can’t believe this. Rest in Peace, Janet.”
A close friend added: “RIP Janet. I was only talking to you and you were off out of here to get yourself better for you and your babies. It’s a cruel world, look over your kids, your family and your friends.”
A third said: “So sad Rip Janet. I hope you get the best bed in heaven.”
Janet’s passing marked the second homeless death in Dublin within the space of 24 hours. On Friday, the body of a man in his forties was found near the ISFC with Gardai still investigating “all circumstances” surrounding his death.
After hearing of the second death on the streets of Dublin, Inner City Helping Homeless (ICHH) CEO Anthony Flynn commented that he was “completely saddened”. He said: “A young girl died, alone in a tent on Saturday. And not a whisper about it.”
He added: “How many people have actually died in homeless services this year?
“How loud do we have to shout, how many more have to die?”
A Garda spokesperson has confirmed the tragic death to Dublin Live, she said: “A body of a woman in her 30s was located at Lynch’s Lane, Clondalkin in the early hours of 24 October, 2020.
“A post mortem has been carried out and a file is being prepared for the Coroners Court.”
