A woman claims to have found a note detailing how to make a coffin that fits her exact body measurements after breaking up with her abusive ex-boyfriend.

The woman, who lived in Southern California, explained on Reddit that she found the details written on a sticky note in her ex-partner’s tool box.

She said her ‘abusive’ former lover had made plans for a coffin that matched her measurements and labelled it ‘vacation plans’.

Many commenters were quick to advise the woman to report the note to law enforcement, however others were skeptical and attempted to question her claim.

The woman shared a photograph of the note she allegedly found in her ex-partner’s tool box on the ‘Oddly Terrifying’ subreddit forum.

She wrote: ‘I left my abusive partner and found this post-it note in his tool box that details his plans for a coffin that he labels “vacation plans :)”. It matches my measurements.’ 

A stream of responses to the post urged the woman to report her ex-boyfriend to the cops, while arguing that the note seems threatening.

One person wrote: ‘I’d file for a restraining order and report that to the cops. He might be full of s*** or he might not be. That’s a threat and was left for you to find.’

Another said: ‘While most likely not for you as other have pointed out, I would hold on to this in case your ex gets more aggressive and makes threat. It would be hard to defend a rough coffin sketch labelled ‘vacation plans’. Also, probably suggest he sees a specialist if you could. Might be his coffin instead.’

A third added: ‘Get a hand gun. If you can’t get a small compacting thing of wasp and hornet spray. The spray shoots 30ft, causes instant blurred vision and the victim HAS to call poison control or go to the ER or their throat will swell and they suffocate.

‘Bonus points if you tell the cops he’s fighting mental illness they will detain to evaluate him for 24 hours in most states. Some states it could be 48-72.

‘Stay safe kid and I hate that this happened to you. Remember it’s not your fault.’

Others chose not to give advice and instead accused the woman of lying about the entire post.

‘The amazing thing about all of this is that these posts are so ridiculously easy to fake and Redditors keep falling for them! Who the f*** would know their exact measurements,’ one wrote.

Other responses to the thread accused the woman of lying and questioned the measurements in the note

Another said: ‘The good news is this design plan is complete nonsense and judging by the drawing and measurements I’d say the guy couldn’t build a birdhouse let alone a coffin.’ 

In a series of follow-up comments in response to the post going viral, the woman revealed she moved house after the break-up to ensure that her ‘abusive’ ex partner doesn’t know where she lives.

‘At our old apartment I wasn’t able to leave as quickly as I would have liked. I had him removed from the property and spent two months preparing for the move. He left a lot of items there and refused to return the key. There were three instances where I wasn’t home and he sent me videos from inside the apartment. 

‘Changing locks was $100. It’s not a lot but I could afford it at the time. I moved as soon as I could, but it was a very scary situation. I stayed with friends frequently, but had another male roommate who had lived with us, which helped me to feel more safe. I now live in an unlisted address and it’s very comforting knowing that he has no idea where I live,’ she said.
