Father Gets Child Support Bill For $117K, Sends Son One Last Heartbreaking Text

The break-up of a family can lead to all sorts of unfortunate consequences, ranging from the emotional to the financial and all points in between. According to the Mirror, this man had appeared to come to terms with things, but a sudden change in the financial ramifications pushed him over the edge.

Ian Sandywell, a 45-year-old resident of the UK, was found hanging in his garage by his current wife, Jo-Ann Balsamo. Earlier in the day, Ian had received a letter from the Child Support Agency outlining a substantial debt that needed to be paid for backdated child support for his now 22-year-old son, Ben. The letter was seeking a substantial sum on a monthly basis to put the debt to rest.

Ian was noticeably upset by the letter, but it was a matter that the couple had addressed previously. He intended to go through the appeals process to rectify the matter, but this time he was seriously troubled and began contacting those closest to him.

He was in contact with Ben throughout the day via text message, and sent his son a horrifying text.

"Delete me out of your life please. I'm going to hang myself," the text read.

Jo-Ann would find her husband some time later and summon the paramedics. He was pronounced dead at the scene, and further investigation revealed a healthy amount of alcohol was in his system.
