AceShowbiz - Wisconsin news anchor has sadly passed away over the heartbreak she endured in the wake of her broken romance. Neena Pacholke died by suicide last month after her fiance called off their engagement.
The WAOW anchor took her own life by shooting herself with a handgun, which she had bought just 90 minutes earlier, on August 27. She killed herself in Wausau, WI, in the home which she and her ex Kyle Haase had purchased one month earlier.
According to Daily Mail, Kyle broke up with Neena just seven weeks before they were due to get married in Mexico. The split came after a tumultuous two-year romance filled with fights, heavy drinking and rumors of affairs.
Before taking her own life, Neena texted her sister, "He [Kyle] told me he hates me and will feel like a million bucks once I am out of his life," adding that she was "broken." Neena also sent a chilling text message to her ex-fiance which read, "I love you Kyle. I always have and always will. Despite how much you ruined me, I always had hope. I'm so sorry to do this to you but I can't handle any of this pain anymore."
Kyle was reportedly on his way to Minnesota to see his mother along with his children from a previous relationship when he received the suicidal message. He said he spoke to Neena who told him that she was "going to do something," but she was not specific. Kyle then contacted police asking them to do a welfare check. He also advised them of the code for the garage to allow them access to the interior of the home.
When police arrived at her home, they heard a noise followed by the sound of something falling. By the time they entered, Neena had already shot herself in the head with a handgun. A day earlier, a concerned friend had removed all firearms from the home, fearing that the 38-year-old might harm herself. Her phone history revealed she had searched Google for ways to end her life the night before.
