Neena Pacholke was about to get married to Kyle Haase but he reportedly broke engagement off recently
WAUSAU, WISCONSIN: A news anchor of News 9, who killed herself, was reportedly facing serious issues in her relationship. As per reports, Neena Pacholke was to marry her fiancé Kyle Haase in October this year, but he broke up with her. The 27-year-old also allegedly discovered panties of another woman in the house she bought with Haase.
Pacholke was found dead inside her $390,000 house on last Saturday, August 27. Her body was discovered after a friend called 911 requesting a welfare check but when officers reached the address, the news anchor was dead. The residence where she died was purchased on July 27 by her and Haase.

Now, her friends have revealed to DailyMail.com that the woman’s relationship with the 38-year-old father-of-two was not stable and happy. “They were always arguing, and it seemed like Neena was more in love with Kyle than he was with her,” a pal of hers revealed. Another one shared that there was infidelity involved too.
The publication citing one friend reported that Kyle, who is a commercial sales manager at Imperial Industries, had “showed a friend a nude picture that a former mistress had sent him, and he told the friend, 'Look at her boobs and a**, I wish Neena's body looked like that. I don't even want to go home to Neena. The only thing I get from her is a tax break because she only makes $47,000 a year?’”
It has been said that Pacholke had known Haase since November 2020 after meeting him at a funeral while he was married to his ex-wife. While the newscaster was “loved by everybody,” that was not the case with her fiancé. A friend said, “I never liked him,” and the second one added, “He was always the drunkest one at the bar. He made good money and wasn't afraid to let everyone know it.”
The man also reportedly got involved in a fight during a breast cancer awareness fundraiser in July at the Wausau Country Club. Country club stockholder Corey Suthers said, “He wanted his $2,000 back that he'd spent on a charity basket and when he didn't get it, he started to throw out profanity and insults to me and everyone else inside the club.”
Police officer Jeff Hancock mentioned in his report, “These profanity-laden abusive remarks were made in an unreasonably loud manner and in such a way that the majority of the patrons at the bar demanded that Haase leave. Haase's verbal insults to Suthers provoked Suthers to return profanity-laced insults and derogatory comments at Haase.”
“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?’” Hancock, who accompanied officer Joshua English to the event, noted.
He also concluded, “Due to the totality of the circumstances surrounding the incident, as well as Haase's outspoken dislike of Officer English and his proven disregard for lawful police commands, I determined that in the interests of public safety, neither Haase nor Suthers would be placed under arrest for disorderly conduct.”
Meanwhile, friends of Pacholke have remembered her as someone who “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.” Chillingly, a few weeks before her death, she had covered a suicide story and was later reportedly heard telling her co- anchor, “I just don't understand how can anyone commit suicide? It's such a selfish act. The person doesn't realize how it affects everyone in their life.”
Pacholke’s mother, Laurie, has given an interview after her daughter’s death, where she spoke about her mental health struggles. She said, “She was getting treatment. I'll put it out there – she had been to the crisis center 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.”
