WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Scott Bellis of Wales, England died of a suspected overdose in his flat on May 29.
- Scott’s brother, Robert Jones, rushed to comfort his grieving Mom, but also died the following morning.
- Rosemary Davis was left devastated after her sons’ deaths. ‘The night of Scott’s death turned out to be the eve of Robert’s death.’
Rosemary Davis, in her 60’s, from Bradley, Wrexham, was left in extreme grief after her two sons died one after the other.
Her son Scott Bellis, 29, struggled with alcohol addiction. He initially wanted to go to rehab, but there was no place for him. The night before his death on May 29, Rosemary noticed he was down, so she begged him to stay with her. Instead, he went back to his flat just around the corner. The following day, Rosemary found out Scott had died in a suspected overdose.
Her other son Robert ‘Bobby’ Jones, 36, rushed to his mother’s house to comfort her.
“We talked until about 2 am, then I went to bed. At 5 am I was crying in my bed, trying not to wake anybody up as Bobby and his girlfriend, Fallon were sleeping downstairs on the sofa bed.”
But at 7:55 am, Rosemary woke up to Fallon’s scream. Bobby had blood coming out of his mouth and was already cold to the touch.
Despite the efforts of his stepdad and the paramedics to save Bobby, they were unable to revive him.
“I found myself screaming in the street outside. I couldn’t believe I’d now lost my other boy,” Rosemary said. “The night of Scott’s death turned out to be the eve of Robert’s death.”
A joint funeral was held for Scott and Bobby at Holy Trinity Church in Wrexham. Their coffins were carried by grieving relatives, including Rosemary’s’ 18-year-old grandson Liam.
“I don’t know how they did it, because after they carried one coffin down they had to go back up the aisle to carry the other one. It was heartbreaking,” she said.
She “felt like jumping into the grave with them,” but has to live on for Scott’s 6-year-old son, Leo.
“I’m his legal guardian, but Scott absolutely adored him, as did his uncle Bobby. Leo has lost both his daddy and a very close uncle. He loved him so much and would always take him to the park for a game of football.”
Rosemary remembers Scott being ‘kind and shy.’ And though Bobby had lived with Fallon and was in a good place mentally, both would come to see her often. They had been ‘little rogues together.’
‘My other three, Michael, Dean and Donna, got on with their lives, but my apron strings had never really been cut from Scott and Bobby. We were inseparable,’ she said
