As the autopsy results into Kate’s death are still pending, NYPD told HollywoodLife.com it was an apparent suicide. “On Tuesday June 5 at approximately 10:20 AM a police officer responded to a 911 call about an unconscious person. Upon arrival the officer discovered a 55-year-old woman named Katherine Brosnahan unconscious inside [her] Park Avenue apartment. EMS resounded and pronounced her dead on the scene. The investigation into the cause of death is ongoing,” NYPD told us.
The legendary designer reportedly left a suicide note near her body, which was addressed to the couple’s 13-year-old daughter, Frances Beatrix. “Bea – I have always loved you. This is not your fault. Ask Daddy!” the note said, according TMZ. The alleged note has also sparked questions about Kate and Andy’s marriage.
Since her death, reports have claimed that the pair, who were married for 24 years, had major relationship issues. — So much, that Andy was reportedly hunting for an apartment of his own in Manhattan. In fact, before Andy was spotted for the first time (in the above photos) he was reportedly coming from a $12,000 apartment he also rents.
While we wait for more details surrounding Kate’s death, it’s important to note that reports have claimed that Andy was inside the couple’s home when Kate took her own life. As for why she did it? — Kate’s reported estranged sister, Reta Brosnahan Saffo, 57, claims the designer has suffered from depression for years and refused to seek treatment to protect her image.
