We were informed about her demise by her mother through a Facebook post on May 2.

She wrote, “I don’t have words or any thoughts. A beautiful baby girl is gone. Please give us privacy as we mourn the loss of Kailia. My baby forever.”

Later her family made the heartbreaking announcement through TMZ, “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 earthly life.”

The grieving family told the newspaper about their talented and competent daughter, “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.”

Not only this the aspiring young talent was already setting her own career goal that she wanted to accomplish along with being a part of the entertainment world. According to the Posey family, she had a love for aviation and wanted to become an airline pilot while working in the entertainment industry.

The family later made further announcements and provided a bit of detail regarding Kailia Posey’s death and a brief about her accomplishment and success in life. They requested the media to give them some privacy as the family copes with the loss of their beautiful daughter.

Kailia Posey’s Cause of Death

The death of the 16-year-old beauty pageant is still a mystery and it’s under investigation.

Posey was found dead in Birch Bay State Park in Washington which is said to be a distance of 30 minutes drive from her home on May 2, around 1:20 pm by the patrolling troops.

Later the cause of death was revealed to be suicide, which was further announced by her family through social media posts. The girl just recently celebrated her 16th birthday on April 19 and stepped into a new year of her life with more new hope and dreams ahead, which made it just so surreal to know of her death.

So the main question is how did Kailia Posey take her life? What could be the reason for her death?

The police and her family announced Posey took her own life and was found hanged in the state park. But many are also confused about her death whether it is suicide or an accident because Posey was also involved in a car accident in Las Vegas from a few earlier reports but the police haven’t made any comment on her death involving any car or an accident.

But the investigation into her death is still ongoing and we are yet to know the exact reason for her death and how did Kailia Posey kill herself? But according to her few close friends the teenage star was struggling with a few things and they did everything to encourage her and helped her out. So whether the suicide is related to distress or some mental issues is yet to be known.
