A TRANSSEXUAL student taunted and be*ten for living as a woman died after taking an overdose of paink*llers, her inquest heard.
Natasha Lauren Brown, 20, was born Charles Nicolas James Corcoran but decided to live and dress as a woman last year.
The gifted photography student had planned to undergo hormone therapy after changing her name.
But she became depressed following months of jibes from bullies. Once she was even knocked unconscious in a random attack.
Natasha was found unconscious in bed by her girlfriend Susan Latham, surrounded by empty containers of powerful paink*ller Co-codamol, at the house they shared in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffs, on May 10 this year.
Natasha was taken to hospital where doctors tried to flush the dr*g from her body.
But she died of liver failure four days later.
North Staffordshire Deputy Coroner Anthony Curzon recorded a verdict of accidental death after ruling he could not be sure Natasha meant to take her own life.
Mr Curzon said her death had resulted from liver failure due to paracetamol overdose, gender dysmorphia, depression and personality disorder.
He added: “This is a very, very sad case; perhaps one of the saddest I’ve come across.
“We have a young lady who was clearly very disturbed for some time.”
The inquest on Wednesday heard how Natasha, known to friends as Tash, had a history of self-harming after suffering mental health problems as a teenager.
She had seen various mental health professionals, and the family raised concerns about finding women’s clothes and beauty products in their home, the hearing was told.
After the inquest, her family blasted mental health workers for allegedly ignoring their pleas for help, and called for a better understanding of the issues Natasha faced.
Mum Sheelagh, 45, said: “Natasha — as Charles — was first in hospital at 15 years old.
“I spoke to a psychologist and said I had found some items of women’s underwear and make-up in his room.
“We had to go to meetings and they always told us about the dozens of questionnaires and assessments they had done on Charles.
“But they never said anything about any gender issues. How could they miss something so fundamental?
“We’d just like to say we strongly believe the mental health services could have done more to help her than they did.”
Verdict: Accidental death.
