Tributes have poured in after a “beautiful and generous” young carer was mysteriously found dead just yards from her slippers after taking a walk along British beach.
The body of Blessing Ayomide Adetutu Olusegun, 21, was found in Bexhill-on-Sea in east Sussex only hours after she had spoken to her boyfriend on the phone.
Blessing, 21, was from London and had been on a week-long placement in the seaside town as a live-in carer for dementia sufferers.
She had talked with close family and her partner at 1am on September 18, asking them to stay on the line as she walked towards the seafront.
Her heartbroken parents are now demanding answers over her tragic and mysterious death.
Blessing, a business and finance student, last sent a message to her family friend at 1.25am.
Police said her body was found on the beach nearly 5 hours later, at 6.20am, with her family adding that her phone and slippers were with her.
Detectives said the death is unexplained, but not suspicious – with an autopsy coming back inconclusive.
Her mourning mum, Esther Abe, 39, is searching for answers over why her “beautiful, gorgeous and talented” daughter died.
She told the Evening Standard: “I’m devastated beyond words. I spoke to Blessing the day before and she was fine.
“Then the police came to say she was dead. A member of the public saw her body on the beach early in the morning.
“I’m a mother and I need to know what happened to my daughter. Did she come to harm?

“She had so much to do in her life. Now I will not see her mature into a beautiful, gorgeous and talented woman. I don’t know what I am going to.”
Mrs Abe is being supported by campaigner Richard Taylor, whose 10-year-old son Damilola was killed in London 20 years ago.
A GoFundMe page set up by friend Christiana Sofolabo has called for “Justice for Blessing” and suggests a campaign will “march to Parliament” for answers.
Christiana wrote: “This case has been very mysterious from the start, we have been informed by the coroner stating that Blessing's autopsy results came out as inconclusive.

“The reason why we making a campaign is to raise enough funds to arrange the best burial for our Blessing. We also want the world to come together to help us find out what happened to our Blessing, we want to find out how she died.
“Her name is blessing for a reason she shined so much light into all our lives, she was the most kindest, loyal, beautiful, amazing, god-fearing, enigmatic young woman we ever had a pleasure to be around.”
So far more than £3,400 has been raised by well-wishers towards a £7,000 target.
Friends and loved ones have been open in their tributes to the young carer.
One person said: “Went to college with her. Such a loving and beautiful soul. May her soul rest in perfect peace and may the family get the justice that she deserves.”
And another person wrote: “May she rest in peace! and may the truth come to light!”
A spokesman for Sussex Police said that enquires were ongoing.
A spokesman told The Sun: “Police have been investigating the circumstances and the death is being treated as unexplained though not suspicious at this stage.
"A postmortem took place on September 24 and further forensic tests are being carried out in order for the cause of death to be established.
"Police enquiries are continuing in liaison with the Coroners Officer."
