A weather reporter has passed away after sharing a heartbreaking post on Facebook revealing her high school band director had abused her.
42-year-old Kelly Plasker has died at the age of 42 after posting on Facebook, saying ‘my brain is broken and I cannot take it anymore.’
KCBD’s Vice President Dan Jackson said in a statement: “We are deeply saddened by the tragic and sudden loss of KCBD weekend morning forecaster Kelly Plasker.
“Kelly was a dedicated member of the KCBD weather staff, well-liked by viewers, and admired by her co-workers. Our deepest sympathies go out to Kelly’s family in this time of great loss.”
Jackson continued: “We would like to thank the many viewers who have reached out through our social media channels in kindness and support to honor Kelly’s memory.
“Grief counselors have been made available to all members of the KCBD family struggling with this heartbreaking news.”
Before Kelly passed away, she took to Facebook and wrote about her high school band director.
“I got thrown off course in high school by a man twice my age. My band director, using his time at Frenship high school to find his new ‘’soulmate! He was supposed to be somebody looking out for me, but instead of looking out for me he looked at me in ways that men should not look at children.”
She finished her heartbreaking post by writing: “Thanks all I needed to get out there as my final confession for the sins I am responsible for adding to the cross.
“I love you my friends. My brain is broken and I cannot take it anymore.”
Her death comes three years after her 19-year-old son committed suicide. Her father also passed away a few months later.
