A fashion model and mom of four has been found dead hours after a mysterious and profanity-laced Facebook post.
Alli MacDonnell, 37, was one of Ireland’s top models and was signed with the Andrea Roche’s AR Model Agency.
News of her shocking death came hours after she wrote online:
“Why is it ok for a man to call a girl a fat ugly c–t?????? Seriously new level of pushing someone to the edge.”
It is not clear whom she was referring to or when the alleged incident occurred.
MacDonnell was a single mother of four children — Alex, 17, Sara, 15, Harry, 9, and Siena, 2 — whom she described as her “world” on her Instagram.
MacDonnell, who studied at Trinity College Dublin, campaigned for autism awareness as an ambassador for Autism Action after Harry was diagnosed with the condition in 2016.
Her best friend John Compton revealed the model was in talks to host two new TV shows before her death.
One was a prank show and the other was a program about autism.
John Compton, a close friend of the model recalled:
“Alli lived for her four kids, she was a brilliant mum, her kids were her world,”
There was loads going on for her in a positive way. There were a couple of shows in talks with her, one of them was about autism. This is all so sad. Alli had her whole life in front of her, I just can’t believe it, she was my best friend,”
