A mother-of-nine who took her own life in 2017 predicted her youngest son’s death just three years later in her suicide note, her family have revealed.

Jodey Whiting, 42, from Stockton, Teesside, died from a drug overdose in 2017 after her benefits were cut off.

In a suicide note – which has since been shared by her mother Joy, 67 – Ms Whiting wrote that her son Cory Bell ‘is gonna end up dead’.

Just three years later, Mr Bell also died from a drug overdose after he was left unable to cope with the loss of his mother.

Mother-of-nine Ms Whiting suffered severe back problems, including a curve in her spine, and was on medication for bipolar disorder.

She had surgery which saw doctors remove discs from her back.

In 2017, Ms Whiting received a letter informing her that all her benefits would be halted as she had failed to attend an assessment to establish if she was fit enough to work.

Ms Whiting missed the appointment as she was too ill to leave her home. 

She died from a drug overdose less than a week after her final Employment Support Allowance (ESA) payment came in.

Her mother Joy shared Ms Whiting’s suicide note after her death.

In it, Ms Whiting urged her mother to watch over her nine children, including Cory who she feared would ‘end up dead’.

‘It was as if Jodey knew that Cory was going to follow her. 

‘The first anniversary of Cory’s death is just days away and our grief is still so raw.’ 

Cory was discovered dead following a drug overdose in a stranger’s home after attending a party in May.

He struggled to cope with his mother’s death three years earlier, Joy said.
