The Facebook post Kelly published on the day of her death talked about her high school band director who she claimed was a predator.
She finished the post by saying: 'Thanks all I needed to get out there as my final confession for the sins I am responsible for adding to the cross.
'I love you my friends. My brain is broken and I cannot take it anymore.'
Kelly's death comes almost three years after her son died by suicide, before his 20th birthday. 
Lubbock's Rock Station FMX 94.4's host Wes was a friend and co-worker of Kelly's and the Sun reports that the last time he talked to her was about work.

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.    
Other people took to Twitter in tribute of Kelly.
Lauren Linahan of WTV Msaid: 'My heart is heavy. Thinking of Kelly Plasker’s family, friends, and coworkers tonight.'
