Heartbreaking Selfie Shows Battered Face Of Teen Emily Drouet Who Killed Herself Days After She Was Attacked By Her Violent BF, Angus Milligan

A student who was being beaten by her boyfriend took a harrowing selfie showing her swollen face just days before she killed herself.

Emily Drouet, 18, took the pic of the huge red mark on her cheek and sent it to a friend to document the abuse she was suffering at the hands of Angus Milligan.

He would slap her if he thought she had told a lie, encouraged her to sleep with other men and bought her bondage restraints for her 18th birthday.

Emily was found dead inside her halls of residence in Aberdeen in March 2016 after deciding she was unable to escape from her abusive relationship.

Angus Milligan, 21, pleaded guilty last week to assault, threatening and abusing her using abusive and offensive language and sending offensive, indecent, obscene and menacing texts - he is due to be sentenced on July 5.

Emily's parents, Fiona and Germain Drouet, say the pic is still the source of great upset for them, but they have decided to release it in the hope of helping other girls trapped in a similar situation.

Her mother told the DailyRecord: 'I want to jump inside the picture and cuddle her. I want to tell her that she could have spoken to me, that she could have asked for help. We would have been there.

Emily Drouet, a law student from Glasgow, was found dead on March 18 last year.

Her mother revealed that Emily had appeared nervous around Milligan when he stayed at their house, and only answered them with one word.

Former public schoolboy Milligan would often send her complimentary text messages, but within minutes was launching vicious tirades against her.

But despite often wondering if they could have done anything differently, the family are in no doubt who is to blame for Emily's death.

Fiona added: 'If she had never met Angus Milligan, she would be alive today. If she had never met Angus Milligan, she would be alive today.

'Within six months, that man destroyed our daughter and wrecked our lives. He’s just complete evil.'

Law student Miss Drouet, from Glasgow, was found dead on March 18, the day after the last alleged assault.

Police investigated her death but initially ruled there were no suspicious circumstances.

Earlier this year, the Scottish Daily Mail reported that fellow students and friends of Miss Drouet held a party to mark what would have been her 19th birthday.

They had vowed to keep her memory alive and, more than ten months on from the tragedy, they held a commemorative party, with the blessing of her family.

Co-organiser Blake Herriot had earlier said on social media: ‘So, this Saturday marks the 19th birthday of our beautiful Emily Drouet. Over ten months we have gone without our best friend beside us.’

Angus Milligan, 21, is said to have assaulted Miss Drouet several times while she was living at Hillhead Halls in Aberdeen University

Police investigated her death but ruled there were no suspicious circumstances.

According to court documents, Milligan is said to have assaulted her by pouring beer over her, seizing her by the neck, choking her and pushing her against a desk

Mr Herriot said a large group of Miss Drouet’s friends planned to attend a number of venues in Aberdeen, including her favourite nightclub, Vanity, where pictures of her ‘beautiful smile’ were to be displayed for all to remember her by.

He added: ‘Emily’s mum has made the best of arrangements to celebrate Emily turning 19. Balloons have been bought and drinks will be shared.

‘We all love you so much, Emily, we miss you more every day. It will never be the same without you.’

The party was welcomed by Miss Drouet’s grandmother, Eileen Campbell, who wrote on Facebook: ‘Emily is my beautiful, caring, very special granddaughter. Thank you, Blake, you put into words everything in my heart.’

In another post, she said: ‘Emily brought so much joy to our family.

‘Her sunny smile and lovely personality is so missed. Emily is loved so much and for ever in our hearts. Love you, Gran.’
