Female bouncer, 21, found dead in hotel room two years after ex-girlfriend orchestrated brutal girl-gang attack on her

Tragic Aimee Purdey, 21, had been suffering from depression and anxiety when she text her partner saying: “I’m sorry”.

She was later found dead in the hotel in Manchester in March last year, an inquest was told.

Her death came two years after she suffered severe bruising in a savage “happy slap” attack by an all-girl gang, which was not mentioned as a factor in her death at the hearing.

Aimee, then 18, was lured by ex Simone McDermott into meeting her at her home but was ambushed by the thug and her three pals.

The teen begged “let me go, please let me go” as she was kicked and punched repeatedly while the animals threatened to “break” her face.

Aimee was left with multiple bruising to her head and body – including a footprint mark.

The hearing was told Aimee had been on a night out in Manchester with pals when she returned to her hotel room alone at around 5.15am.

Her girlfriend called police after receiving the “I’m sorry” text but by the time cops arrived, Aimee was tragically already dead.

The inquest was told she had made threats over taking her own life and there had been “issues” over suicidal thoughts and self-harm.

She had also been receiving medication through Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust and was due to see a psychiatrist in June last year.
