The WAOW news anchor, who reportedly died by suicide, allegedly found women’s underwear at the home she shared with her fiancé, her friends said.
Neena Pacholke passed away suddenly on August 27 at the age of 27, the ABC affiliate in Wausau, Wisconsin said.
Pacholke was set to marry divorced father-of-two Kyle Haase, 38, on October 12 in Mexico, according to the Daily Mail.
Just weeks before Pacholke’s death, the couple bought a nearly $400,000 home in the Wausau area.
But friends have said their relationship has been troubled, the Daily Mail reports.
“They always fought and it seemed like Neena was more in love with Kyle than he was with her,” a friend told the outlet.
Friends reportedly told the outlet Pacholke was worried Haase was having an affair with a former flame.
Pacholke is said to have recently told a friend that she and Haase found women’s panties.
The couple also reportedly had a blowout fight in July when Haase allegedly kicked Pacholke out of his rental home.
She rented a U-Haul for her belongings and stayed in a hotel for three days until the two reconciled, reports the Daily Mail.
“I never liked him,” said a friend of the outlet, speaking of Haase.
“He was always the drunkest at the bar,” said another friend.
“He made good money and wasn’t afraid to let everyone know.”
‘WHY ARE YOU WITH HIM ALSO?’
Haase’s drunken behavior was documented in a July police report following an incident at a breast cancer awareness fundraiser he and Pacholke attended at the Wausau Country Club.
The report alleges Haase made “disparaging remarks” towards another man, Corey Suthers, while intoxicated.
According to the police report, Pacholke tried to resolve the heated incident.
“Haase’s verbal insults to the Suthers provoked the Suthers to respond with obscene insults and derogatory comments to Haase,” Officer Jeff Hancock wrote in his report.
“As this happened, Pacholke stepped between the two and tried to stop the escalating verbal exchange. According to Pacholke, Suthers told her to shut up.
“Speaking to Suthers later, he told me he had told Pacholke to fuck himself. He’s a piece of shit. Why are you even with him?”
No one was arrested in the incident, although the men were told the case would be referred to prosecutors.
The Daily Mail also reports that Haase had previously been arrested for drunk driving in May 2021.
Pacholke was with him when he was arrested.
Neena’s parents spoke to WAOW about their daughter and the fact that she has struggled with mental health issues for years.
“She was treated. I’ll put it out there — she’s been to the crisis center a few times,” Laurie Pacholke said.
“She had so many people here to talk to.
“She spoke to people, but she didn’t want anyone to know how badly she hurt herself, so she didn’t speak until it got that bad.”
Pacholke Haase reportedly left a voicemail and emailed him before she died, the Daily Mail reports.
A celebration of life is to take place in Wausau on September 4th.
Another service is scheduled for September 10 in Pacholke’s hometown of Tampa, Florida.
