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 cannot describe our loss,” Loane’s Australian family said in a statement about their daughter’s death by suicide, the Daily Mail reported.
The young cowgirl, a trailblazer for women in agriculture, had worked as a cattle manager on her parents’ 600-acre cattle ranch in Tasmania that Loane would later run, news.com.au reported. The country woman documented her everyday life – which ranged from treating sick heifers to presenting her latest country couture – to her more than 51,000 followers on TikTok.

The haunting final video before Loane’s death, which currently has over 170,000 views, featured a photomontage of the pioneer farmer’s life led to a song asking, “How far would you go for the girl of your dreams?” In the caption she wrote, “How about Tasmania?”
Loane’s family said they were devastated by their loss.
“She was a lovely, crazy young woman who was an invaluable member of our family,” said her grieving father, Phillip Loane.
The teenager’s mother, Richele, said her daughter’s “smile lit up the room” and she “wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty”.
Just last month, Loane reported on her agricultural career path to TasWeekend during Agfest Tasmania, where the boy was overseeing the 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. “The lots are huge up there, and they gather by helicopter and on horseback.”

She added, “It was character building and I had to adopt a great work ethic that I apply to my own business here at home.”
Friends also mourned their tragic death.
“Oh, how it hurts my heart to know that you have left us all, the bright, lively, beautiful, but crazy girl,” wrote a grieving classmate on Facebook. “I will never forget the beautiful moments and memories we have together.”
A local sports club to which Loane was a member also paid tribute: “It is with deep sadness and regret that Devonport Football Club notes the sudden death of one of our players, Caitlyn Loane.”
