In the Instagram post, Kayleigh wrote … “As I take my final breaths and exit this living earth, I would like to apologize to everyone I let down. I am so sorry I could not be better. To those that I love, I am sorry I could not be stronger. To those that gave me their everything, I am sorry my effort was not reciprocated.”
The post was flooded with comments from concerned fans, with many saying they were calling police in Denver to conduct a welfare check.
Kayleigh’s post also continued … “Please understand that me leaving is not a reflection of you, but the result of my own inability to turn myself for the better. To Ashley, Cynthia, Regine & Sophia. I am so sorry. Please remember me for the good memories we have shared, and never for my downfall. I will see you all again on the other side.”
Her sister, Ashley, commented on the IG post confirming Kayleigh’s death.
Kayleigh famously shared her transition story in a 2020 United Airlines commercial for Trans Day of Visibility … thanking the airline for helping her transition.
Police in Denver are investigating … and the city’s medical examiner will determine an official cause of death.
Kayleigh was 25.
