A fourth-generation farmer named Caitlyn Loane, who posted popular TikTok clips capturing her action-packed rural lifestyle, took her own life at 19 after posting a haunting final video.

"Words can’t describe our loss," Loane’s Australia-based family said in a statement about their daughter’s death by suicide, the Daily Mail reported.

A trailblazer for women in agriculture, the young cowgirl had worked as a livestock manager at her parent’s 600-hectare cattle farm in Tasmania, which Loane planned to run when she was older, news.com.au reported. The country gal documented her day-to-day routine — which ranged from treating sick heifers to showcasing her latest country couture — to her more than 51,000 followers on TikTok.

The haunting final video before Loane died, which currently boasts over 170k views, depicted a photo montage of the pioneering farmer’s life set to a song asking "how far would you drive for the girl of your dreams?" In the caption, she wrote "how about to Tasmania?"

Loane’s family said they were devastated by her loss.

"She was a lovely, crazy young woman who was an invaluable member of our family," said her bereaved father Phillip Loane.

The teen’s mother Richele said her daughter’s "smile lit up the room" and that she "wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty."

Just this past month, Loane opened up about her agrarian career path to TasWeekend during Agfest Tasmania, where the youngster was overseeing young 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."

Friends also mourned her tragic death.

"Oh how my heart hurts to know you have left us all, the bright, bubbly, beautiful but crazy girl," wrote a bereaved classmate on Facebook. "I will never ever forget the fond moments and memories we have together."

A local sports club that Loane belonged to also paid tribute: "It is with deep sadness and regret that the Devonport Football Club acknowledges the sudden passing of one of our female players, Caitlyn Loane."

The grief rippled out to social media with throngs of fans sending their condolences.

"Sad day for Tassie TikTok," wrote one crestfallen fan on Loane’s moving final video montage. "Your bright light will be missed. Rip."

"Rest in peace, beautiful. You were too good for this world," said another.

Parents of TikTok star who took her life warn of 'despicable' fake crowdfunding page in her name

Daily Mail 09 July, 2021 - 03:40pm

By Peter Vincent and Levi Parsons For Daily Mail Australia

The shattered parents of a teenage farmer who took her own life are searching for answers on what sparked the tragedy - as it's revealed scammers have set up a fake crowdfunding account to prey on her loved ones. 

Phillip and Richele Loane paid tribute to Caitlyn Loane, 19, a fourth-generation Labtrobe farmer who died suddenly in the past fortnight.

Caitlyn was also an emerging TikTok star, with her spontaneous videos liked by over 750,000 people, with many seeing her as a role model for women in agriculture.

Caitlyn Loane, 19, died suddenly leaving her parents Phillip and Richele (pictured above with Caitlyn) grasping for answers because of how certain and content she seemed with the life ahead of her

The glamorous teen was adored by the Latrobe farming community, in northern Tasmania, which is in deep shock at her sudden passing

A devastated Mrs Loane told Daily Mail Australia she had been informed of the fake fundraiser by a friend who was conned by it.

'Sadly we have been notified of this [fake] page and implore everyone to not be caught up in it as it is a scam and not in any way authorised by family,' Mrs Loane warned on social media.

She shared the cover of the fake account, which had used a photo of their daughter.

'Beyond despicable' - the sudden death of vibrant and popular teenage farmer Caitlyn Loane has been used by fraudsters to try and raise money via a crowdfunding scam. The cover image of the page and a receipt one woman received are pictured above. The receipt shows a payment went to 'Babu Khan'

Family friends called the fake page 'disgusting', 'cruel and wrong' and 'beyond despicable'.

One woman who donated realised she had been scammed when she saw the funds went overseas, to someone called 'Babu Khan', who is not known by the family. 

Mrs Loane told Daily Mail Australia the family is still in too much shock to make sense of Caitlyn's passing, let alone go after the scammers.

'I'm still lost for words. It's been a very tough day and the days are not getting any easier,' she told Daily Mail Australia. 

'The are no answers for us, there's no reasons, no whys. She had a crop in the ground. Her future was extremely bright,' Mrs Loane said.

Caitlyn worked at her family's 600-hectare property as a livestock manager in the Latrobe area and was known for her passion for cattle. 

Mrs Loane added that Caitlyn's younger sister Emily, 17, is 'being kept in cotton wool'. 

Caitlyn had been working on the farm 'she she was old enough to ride a four wheel bike, which was about eight,' Mr Loane said.

'She was just an effervescent person, she loved run up to people and give them a big hug when she saw them.'

'But she was wise beyond her years too,' Mr Loane said, adding that she accepted the challenge of promoting farming to young women.

Her mother said she had become an inspiration to young female agriculture workers around the world and will be remembered for her 'nurturing and caring nature'. 

The trailblazing young female farmer (pictured with a calf) tragically ended her own life just days after posting an upbeat clip to her tens of thousands of followers on TikTok

'When she was 13 she wanted to be 18 and when she was 18 she wanted to be 25.' 

Caitlyn had 'spread her wings' and travelled to the Northern Territory at 17 but returned to farming at Latrobe 18 months ago. 

She attended St Patricks Catholic School Latrobe and Sheffield High School and also played AFL for Devonport.

'She was absolutely looking forward to her career.'

Caitlyn's father, Phillip Loane, said Caitlyn was 'passionate' and committed to farming and the future. 

'She felt very strongly about the family farming history and I remember her saying recently "Dad this is where I'm meant to be, it's where I want to be".'

Nothing she did was just work to her, she was passionate, she'd get right into even the most mundane task on the farm, or judging juniors, which she loved doing.' 

In her haunting final Tiktok video to her 51,000 followers on June 27, Caitlyn lip synced an American country song with the lyrics 'how far would you drive for the girl of your dreams?' and showed a series of stills of her working on the farm.

The caption of the video read: 'What about to Tasmania?'

'She wasn't afraid to get her hands dirty - in some photos she has mud up to her knees (pictured),' Caitlyn's mother Richele said

The comment section has now been flooded with messages of condolence paying tribute to the 'beautiful cowgirl'.

'Rest in peace gorgeous. You are an inspiration to many,' one woman wrote.

Others said: 'We are gonna miss you' and 'TikTok won't be the same'.

Just one month ago she opened up to TasWeekend during Agfest Tasmania, where she was involved in cattle judging.

'In 2018, I realised 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,' Caitlyn said.

'Up there the properties are huge and they muster with helicopters and on horseback.

'It was character building and I had to adopt a great work ethic which I apply to my own enterprise here at home.'

As well as her great love of farming and filmmaking, Ms Loane was also a keen AFL player and represented the Devonport Football Club.

The Club shared a heartfelt tribute on their Facebook page expressing their 'deep sadness and regret'.

'The Board, the members, players, volunteers, sponsors, and supporters of the Devonport Football Club convey our sincere condolences and warmest thoughts to Caitlyn's family and friends, which, of course, includes her teammates in the DFC Senior Women's team,' the statement said.

'The past week has put into context what really matters in life, and has reminded us all that football, as unifying as it is, is just a game after all.

'The priority of the Devonport Football Club at present is to provide an empathetic, supportive network to all associated with the club, with particular focus on those most affected by the tragic passing of Caitlyn.'

Family of Caitlyn Loane, TikTok star and Tasmanian farmer, targeted in ‘cruel’ act

7NEWS.com.au 09 July, 2021 - 03:40pm

Reports emerged on Thursday that Caitlyn Loane had died, with her father saying “words can’t describe our loss”.

She amassed a large following on TikTok, where she shared the ins and outs of life as a farmer in Tasmania.

After her death, however, fake fundraisers pretending to raise money for her family have appeared.

Caitlyn’s mother Richele posted to Facebook to warn others against donating to the fake link.

Wellwishers slammed the con, describing it as “cruel and so wrong”.

“How disgusting, as if you ain’t going through enough - sending love, hugs and strength at this tragic time,” one person said.

The bid for donations, which was hosted on GoGetFunding, appears to have been removed from the platform.

Caitlyn was a fourth-generation farmer, working as a livestock manager in the Latrobe region on her family’s 600-hectare property.

Her father Phillip Loane told The Mercury his daughter was a “lovely, crazy young woman who was an invaluable member of our family”.

“She wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty, in some photos she had mud up to her knees.”

Caitlyn’s haunting final post, on June 27, shows her lip-synching to a country song.

“How far would you drive for the girl of your dreams?”, she lip-syncs to a series of pictures of herself working on her farm.

The caption read: “What about to Tasmania?”

“Rest in peace, gorgeous,” one person wrote.

Richele Loane said Caitlyn had become an inspiration to young women working in the farming industry - not just in Australia, but around the world.

She described her daughter as “nurturing and caring”, a lover of filmmaking and passionate about AFL.

Her local club, The Devonport Football Club, shared a touching tribute on their Facebook page.

“The Board, members, players, volunteers, sponsors and supporters of the Devonport Football Club convey our sincere condolences and warmest thoughts to Caitlyn’s family and friends, which, of course, includes her teammates in the DFC Senior Women’s Team,” their statement reads.

“The past week has put into context what really matters in life, and has reminded us all that football, as unifying as it is, is just a game after all,” the post continued.

“The priority of the Devonport Football Club at present is to provide an empathetic, supportive network to all associated with the club, with particular focus on those most affected by the tragic passing of Caitlyn.”
