A community is stunned tonight after the bodies ofÂ 32-year-old Ariana Rosa-Soares and her 9-year-old daughter, Marley Soares were found dead, hangingÂ in the basement of their Brockton, Massachusetts, home.
Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz said police received a call from a family friend requesting assistance at 17 Morgan St. They found the bodies when they arrived.
The mother’s father and Marley’s grandfather, Jose Rosa, said his daughter suffered from mental health issues.
My daughter, a long time ago, she (told me) someday she will kill herself. And I know my daughter (has) a problem. And I search for help, and I (was) looking for help,” Jose Rosa said.
A close friend of Ariana,Â Claudia Gomes, said Ariana had been having trouble recently with her ex husband, whom she divorced last year.
“They would get into arguments, and she would call me while sheâ€™s crying,” said Gomes. “She has mentioned that she was going to kill herself, but this was a while ago, and I told her that that’s not something to do because she has two kids.”
Ariana Rosa-Soares has another daughter who is 11 years old. She was at a friends house during the incident.
The grandfather spoke with police and admitted that he has seen the mother abuse her daughter in the past.
“At my house, like two years ago, she did, she grabbed my granddaughter and pushed her downstairs like a crazy,” Rosa said. “I tried to help, and I called for help, they don’t help me.”
A note was left at the scene, but Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz would not go into detail about what the note said. He only told reporters thatÂ this is a homicide investigation and he doesnâ€™t believe the public is in any danger.
