News anchor killed herself after finding other womans pants in home with fiancé

A popular news anchor has killed herself after her fiancé called off their engagement just seven weeks before the big day.

Neena Pacholke took her own life last Saturday (August 27) in Wausau, Wisconsin, USA.

According to, a friend said she allegedly found the underwear of another woman in the bed she had shared with her ex-fiancé and father of two Kyle Haase, 38.

The publication reports their relationship had involved heavy drinking, fights and possible affairs.

Together for around two years, they had just bought a new house but 27-year-old Pacholke was found dead in the $390,000 (£338,835) home a month later.

They had been due to marry on October 12. Yesterday (Friday, September 2), police confirmed she had killed herself.

It is understood a welfare check request had been made to police by a pal of Neena’s – but by the time they got there, it was too late.

The house deal for their new property had only been closed on July 27, but exactly one month later the much-loved personality claimed her own life.

Pals of Pacholke said that she had been more invested in the relationship than Haase was.

Speaking to one said: “They were always arguing, and it seemed like Neena was more in love with Kyle that he was with her”.

The outlet reports that Neena may have become suspicious that commercial salesperson Kyle may have reconnected with a former lover.

Kyle had proposed to Neena in May and she had moved into his rental earlier this year, with her having given up her property in the centre of Wausau to make the switch.

Following a fight in July however, he reportedly said he was kicking her out.

Neena’s death has left people heartbroken. One friend told the Mail: “She always had a great smile on her face. But for her to commit suicide there must have been some life-altering moment in her mind to take her own life”.

Following her death, her parents gave an interview to WAOW-9, the channel where she hosted the morning show Wake Up Wisconsin.

They said she'd had her own mental health battles to fight: “She was getting treatment. I'll put it out there – she had been to the crisis centre a couple of times.

“She had so many people here to talk to. She talked to people, but she didn't want anybody to know how she was hurting so she didn't talk until it got so bad.”

A celebration of life for Neena is being held at a Wausau area church tomorrow (Sunday, September 4).
