A mother-of-three charged with two counts of murder after allegedly chopping off her boyfriend’s penis and stabbing his mate suffered a ‘breakdown’ last year.
Jasmine Eveleigh, 44, had been seeking treatment for an array of mental health issues culminating in a ‘severe breakdown’ in June 2021.
The mother-of-four remains behind bars accused of murdering her boyfriend Samir Esbeck, 59, and Sarkis Abboud, 61, at a Brunswick apartment in Melbourne at 5.20am on May 5th.
It’s understood Eveleigh had been in a relationship with Mr Esbeck for 10 years before she allegedly turned on him in a frenzied knife attack.
Eveleigh’s primary Facebook account features posts about her children. She is understood to have made a second page as recently as March this year.
The doting mother proudly boasted about her eldest son’s kindness and strength in the face of adversity and shared sweet snaps with her youngest three.
‘I am truly blessed to be the mum of such a kind, remarkable, true gentleman,’ Eveleigh said.
She often shared sweet tributes to motherhood and family, including one which read: ‘I’m not perfect at everything, but I do make some adorable babies.’
‘I never intended to hurt those around me when I was hurting. I was at war with myself and sadly many I loved become casualties. I never intended to damage anyone while I was broken,’ a separate post read.
Several friends have since reached out to Eveleigh after CCTV footage which allegedly shows her wandering the streets of Melbourne in a bra with blood on her feet surfaced.
