    I'm assuming someone saw her fall.

    What I was getting at was, how do they kow she wasn't pushed? She seemed scared from the last conversation with her mother. Ok, I sense two different emotions in this statement- either fear or disappointment/heartache.. I wish that was elaborated on a bit more.. She was 'ready to go back' home. She was making a plan for the future and forward thinking... Why do they believe she was suicidal?

    A Queensland woman who ended up homeless after moving to Washington DC has been found dead days after telling her mum she was “ready to go back” to Australia.
    Meghan Godfrey had asked her mum to bring her home in a chilling final email to her family in Australia that simply read: “Come take me home … ready to go back.”

    The 27-year-old from Yungaburra, who was described as “charming, trusting, personable and full of adventure” by family, ended up on the streets after she was reportedly robbed of her wallet and ID.

    Her mother Janelle Moncrieff arrived in the US capital on July 17 after seeing the mysterious email and making the long journey across the Pacific to bring her home.

    She spent 10 days working alongside Washington DC Police, Amtrak Police, Union Station security, the Australian Embassy, the Australian expat community and street outreach groups trying to find her daughter.


    Local women’s outreach organisation HER Resiliency Centre released snaps of Meghan on social media in the hope of tracking her down.

    She was last seen at Washington’s Union Station and described as being in a “vulnerable state”.

    “At the beginning of this week our outreach team met with a woman who travelled here from Australia in search of her missing daughter (Meghan Godfrey), who was recently sighted in Washington DC,” a HER spokeswoman wrote in a statement on July 14.

    “The daughter is in a vulnerable state, had her wallet/ID stolen, and is currently living on the streets. We have been unable to locate her since Friday.

    “Pictures of her are below in the hopes that perhaps one of you might have seen her more recently.

    “The daughter did send her mother an email two weeks ago asking her to come take her home … that she is ‘ready to go back’. That is why her mother is here.

    “She is not going to leave until her daughter is found.”

    The group posted a picture of Meghan looking dishevelled sitting on the street outside a building with a bag, cigarettes and a takeaway cup.

    Tragically, by the time Meghan’s mother had arrived in the city, Meghan took her own life on July 16.

    HER Executive Director Ami M Angell confirmed to news.com.au that Meghan had passed away: “Meghan Godfrey has been identified as the unidentified woman in the missing person composite. Yesterday I went with her mother to ID the confirm identification of the body.”

    Ms Angell said there had been a number of potential sightings of Meghan in the last week, none of which appeared to have been her.

    In a Go****** page dedicated to raising money to fund bringing Meghan’s body home, outreach officer Ami Angell said the family was experiencing “a lot of pain and anguish right now”.
