Sara Mayer, 31, hanged herself on Sunday afternoon at her home in the Borough Park section, the New York Daily News reported.

Her death comes four months after her sister, Faigy Mayer, 30, jumped off a rooftop bar in Manhattan. Six years earlier, Faigy Meyer had left the Hasidic world in which she had grown up.

Sara suffered years of depression following her forced marriage to a first cousin, the son of the mother’s sister, ” a family insider told The New York Post on Monday. “She had a nervous breakdown on the eve of her arranged wedding about five years ago — and had already endured years of physical and mental abuse by relatives, ” according to the source.

Unnamed family and friends told the Daily News that Sara Mayer was mentally ill and had been hospitalized on several occasions. An unnamed law enforcement official told the newspaper that she had been scheduled to move into a group home this week.
