TikTok star Caitlyn Loane’s family confirmed that she took her own life at the age of 19 after posting a chilling video to her account.
“Words can’t describe our loss,” the grieving parents said about the “cowgirl who wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty” and “the lovely, crazy young woman who was an invaluable member of the family.”
Caitlyn posted her daily adventures as a fourth-generation farmer. She was the livestock manager of the familial 1,400 acres cattle farm in Tasmania.
Her 51,000+ followers loved her farming routine including caring for sick animals, riding horses, and boasting country attires.
“In 2018, I realized that school wasn’t giving me the skills and experience I needed, so I applied to the Sunday Creek Cattle Station, so I could gain experience and learn more,” Caitlyn told TasWeekend last month.
“Up there the properties are huge, and they muster with helicopters and on horseback. It was character building, and I had to adopt a great work ethic which I apply to my own enterprise here at home.”
But the TikToker’s last video was less enthusiastic; she posted a photo compilation of her life with a song wondering in the background: “How far would you drive for the girl of your dreams?”
To which she answered: “How about to Tasmania?”
