WAOW news anchor Neena Pacholke killed herself 'after finding woman's underwear in home after fiance called off wedding' | The Sun

A NEWS anchor who reportedly died by suicide allegedly found women's underwear in the home she shared with her fiancé, her friends said.

Neena Pacholke passed away suddenly at the age of 27 on August 27, ABC affiliate WAOW in Wausau, Wisconsin, reported.

Pacholke was set to marry divorced father-of-two Kyle Haase, 38, in Mexico on October 12, according to the Daily Mail.

Just weeks before Pacholke's death, the couple purchased a home worth nearly $400,000 in the Wausau area.

But friends have said that their relationship was troubled, the Daily Mail reports.

"They were always arguing, and it seemed like Neena was more in love with Kyle that he was with her," one friend told the outlet.

Pacholke's friends went on to claim that Pacholke had been worried that Haase was having an affair with a former flame before her death.

Pacholke allegedly told one friend recently that she had found a pair of women's panties in her and Haase's home.

The couple also reportedly had a blow out fight in July when Haase allegedly kicked Pacholke out of his rental home.

She rented a U-Haul for her things and stayed at a hotel for three days until the two reconciled, Daily Mail reported.

"I never liked him," one friend told the outlet, speaking of Haase.

"He was always the drunkest one at the bar," another friend alleged.

"He made good money and wasn't afraid to let everyone know it."


Haase's drunken behavior was documented in a July police report after an incident at a breast cancer awareness fundraiser that he and Pacholke were attending at the Wausau Country Club.

The report claims Haase "made derogatory remarks" toward another man, Corey Suthers, while intoxicated.

Pacholke tried to break up the heated incident, according to the police report.

"Haase's verbal insults to Suthers provoked Suthers to return profanity-laced insults and derogatory comments at Haase," Officer Jeff Hancock wrote in his report.

"As this was happening, Pacholke stepped in between the two and attempted to stop the escalating verbal exchange. According to Pacholke, Suthers told her to 'shut the f**k up.'

"While speaking with Suthers later on, he told me that he told Pacholke to 'go f**k yourself. He's a piece of s**t. Why are you even with him?'"

No one was arrested in the incident, though the men were told the case would be referred to the district attorney's office.

The Daily Mail also reports that Haase had previously been arrested on a DUI charge in May 2021.

Pacholke was with him at the time of his arrest.


Neena's parents spoke to WAOW about their daughter and the fact that she had suffered from mental health issues for years.

"She was getting treatment. I'll put it out there – she had been to the crisis center a couple of times," Laurie Pacholke said.

"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."

Pacholke reportedly left Haase a voicemail and wrote him an email before she died, the Daily Mail reports.

A celebration of life is scheduled to take place in Wausau on September 4.

Another service is scheduled for September 10 in Pacholke's hometown of Tampa, Florida.
