Posey’s Family Revealed The Cause Of Her Death
The untimely death of their beloved daughter is not anticipated by many parents. Posey’s family had a talk with TMZ and disclosed the cause of her death. Sadly, the world had to lose yet another child due to suicide.
Yes, Posey committed suicide and it couldn’t have been more painful.
The family revealed, “Although she was an accomplished teenager with a bright future ahead of her, unfortunately in one impetuous moment, she made the rash decision to end her life.”
“She won countless crowns and trophies after competing on the pageant circuit her entire life. Her highly acclaimed talent as a contortionist had already led to professional touring job offers, and she had recently been selected to be a cheerleader at her high school next fall.”
The star died in Birch Bay State Park in Washington at 1.20 pm. The Washington State Patrol reported the tragic loss and it was Jacob Kennett who confirmed the news.
Kennett further said that WSP was called for investigating the death of a juvenile at around 1.26 p.m. The Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office needed help with the investigation.
Posey Has Been A Victim Of Accidents Before
The pageant girl previously had a car accident while in Las Vegas. Though she was in her home state, she couldn’t visit her home for the last time.
It was only a few days back that Kailia had her sweet 16. Her birthday was on the 19th of April and she was also a Lynden High School freshman. She was quite the popular girl and earned a spot on her school’s cheerleading team.
The cheerleading team took to Instagram to pay tribute. In one of the images, wings were superimposed on Kailia’s shoulders and also a halo. They shared two captions, “Please stay. The world is better with you in it,” “Speaking a few kind words might be the most important thing you will do today.”
The Popularity Of Kailia
The late star was featured on a few episodes of the TLC reality series. This show was about families who used to get their children ready for beauty pageants. Though she had a very limited screen time, Kailia became popular after her adorable evil grin became viral.
While recalling all the beautiful memories, we see how the mum was gushing over her daughter. She explained, “When Kailia was younger, and she was three, she started doing pageants and she’s a pro when she hits that stage.”
