The family was notified on Friday by Bradenton detectives of Kellyʼs passing.

We are deeply saddened by the loss of our daughter/sister/aunt. As you can imagine, the full extent of our loss has yet to be realized, we are in shock, and are grieving Kellyʼs passing. We loved and miss her tremendously. It is our hope that the joint effort of the Bradenton police, Manatee County Sheriff, St. Petersburg police, and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement can quickly find whoever did this to her and bring them to justice and bring some closure to the family. We would ask everyone to please respect the privacy of the family and allow us to mourn Kellyʼs loss privately. Brenden Moriarty
