    Caitlyn spoke about her career path to TasWeekend magazine during Agfest Tasmania, last month.

    While there, she was overseeing cattle judges, the Daily Mail reported.

    “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, in the Northern Territory, so I could gain experience and learn more,” Loane said at the time.

    “Up there the properties are huge, and they muster with helicopters and on horseback.”

    She added: “It was character building, and I had to adopt a great work ethic which I apply to my own enterprise here at home.”

    SICK SCAMMERS (CONTINUED…)

    Hours after news emerged of her death, shameless fraudsters tried to cash in by brazenly setting up a fake online crowdfunding page.

    Caitlyn's mum, Richele, warned on social media: "Sadly we have been notified of this page and implore everyone to not be caught up in it as it is a scam and not in any way authorised by family."

    Sickeningly, the heartless scammers had even used a photo of Richele and Phillip Loane's beloved daughter to con people into donating money.

    Shocked at the scam, those who knew Caitlyn slammed it as “cruel and so wrong” and “beyond despicable”.

    The phoney fundraiser was set up by someone with "no heart", said one disgusted person. Another lashed out: “For some low lives to do this as if you haven’t enough to deal with already."

    YOU’RE NOT ALONE

    Every 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

    It doesn’t discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

    It’s the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

    Yet it’s rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

    Let’s all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You’re Not Alone.
