Law enforcement sources say they received a call from a concerned family member last month to check on Niece at her home, and that’s when she was discovered inside.
Fans of hers became concerned when she deleted almost all of the photos from her Instagram account, leaving only three posts.
Her family adds, “Niece was more than her struggles. She was beautiful and kind, sensitive and funny, creative and talented, generous and compassionate, thoughtful and challenging. While it is so very painful to say goodbye, we take comfort knowing she is reunited with her father, her three grandparents, her Uncle Rusty, and her beloved Puff; and that she is now free to be herself and, finally, at peace.”
We’re thinking about her friends and family in these tragic times.
Rest in peace Niece.
