‘Kelly was a dedicated member of the KCBD weather staff, well-liked by viewers, and admired by her co-workers. ‘Our deepest sympathies go out to Kelly’s family in this time of great loss.
‘We would like to thank the many viewers who have reached out through our social media channels in kindness and support to honor Kelly’s memory. ‘Grief counselors have been made available to all members of the KCBD family struggling with this news.’

Thomas Locke lost life two weeks before he turned 20 and in an interview in 2018 with KCBD Kelly said: ‘With somebody in the house, he still felt so alone that he made that choice.’ She had previously credited the Lubbock Department’s team for having helped her through the experience.

He said: ‘The last time we talked, she was in great spirits. The last time she texted, I thought she was having physical problems. He said that her passing was still too raw for him to speak more personally but did say that they had made each other laugh for years and he wished they had had a few more years of laughter.
