As the most recent true crime drama from Lifetime, Bad Behind Bars: Jodi Arias, approaches its conclusion, a message appears on the screen, remembering Tracy Brown Bering and suggesting her death.
However, this message omits further information about her demise, prompting social media users to question the events surrounding her passing, as no publicized reports seem to be accessible.
Bad Behind Bars is a follow-up to Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret, released in 2013, featuring Tricia Black as Donavan Bering and Lynn Rafferty as Tracy Brown, whose fate is hinted at in the movie’s closing scenes.
Has Tracy Brown Bering departed or is she still alive?
According to a post by Understanding Crime on Facebook, Tracy Brown, who wed Donavan Bering in 2018, tragically ended her life in December 2022.
Her mother, Yolanda Ducharme, disclosed that Tracy had been battling depression, which led to her passing. Yolanda expressed her sorrow, acknowledging her inability to assist her daughter and the overwhelming impact of depression. Understanding Crime cites Yolanda as saying, “Tracy, I miss you. I love you. Depression took you from us. I try to get through the day. I try to comprehend, but I’m not certain I ever will.” Yolanda also conveyed, “I love you baby girl, may your soul rest peacefully. Always and forever, you will hold a place in my heart.”
When did Yolanda Ducharme make Tracy Brown’s passing public?
On Sunday, December 4, 2022, Yolanda announced on Facebook that her daughter Tracy had deceased. She requested that her family be kept in everyone’s thoughts and prayers. The post has gathered numerous comments from individuals who knew Tracy, offering their condolences and prayers.
Moments before this announcement, Yolanda had posted about Tracy as her “baby girl” and her “first daughter,” whom she will always hold dear in her heart.
On December 31, 2022, Yolanda expressed her hopes for the upcoming year to bring new love, joy, laughter, and memories, as the previous two years had extracted so much from them all.
Recently, her 35-year-old nephew Aj Brown also passed away, and she shared a GoFundMe page for him on social media.
Donavan Bering, Tracy Brown’s spouse, also recently confronted cancer.
As reported by Understanding Crime regarding Tracy’s passing, Donavan was diagnosed with cancer after their wedding, during the period when the couple was dealing with the aftermath of their strained relationship with Jodi Arias.
While Donavan underwent chemotherapy, Tracy was battling with mental illness.
Despite this, Donavan reportedly expressed gratitude for Tracy’s support, acknowledging that she had taken exceptional care of him.
Even so, the outlet notes that clinical depression is a significant condition. As depicted in Bad Behind Bars: Jodi Arias, Donavan and Tracy got married in 2018, and their union lasted approximately four years until Tracy’s passing.
