You are watching: Bs in the morning what happened to brittany
By now many of you have learned of the passing of Brittney Cason, who died on Wednesday, January 23 in Las Vegas.Brittney had left Charlotte five years ago heading to Vegas to co-host BS In The Morning on KOMP 92 FM until last fall.
Jordan Fish, who was forever besties with Brittney at least since high school days, posted a message Friday night that read, in part:“It is with deep sadness that our dear friend, Brittney Cason, passed away on Wednesday, January 23, 2019, mere hours shy of what would have been her 38th birthday.Her family and close friends want to thank all of you who have sent messages, made phone calls and expressed their deepest condolences over the past couple of days. They are greatly appreciated. We understand people have questions, but privacy is requested during this difficult time. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers as we all take time to heal.”We initially told you about Cason back in 2011 when she landed her first radio gig — Cason had been very active in the Charlotte media market as a blogger and freelance columnist for The Charlotte Observer, and had also done TV reporting for ESPNU and NASCAR when she was noticed by CBS Radio and hired as the co-host of The O Show with Otis on WNKS (Kiss 95.1)/Charlotte.”Cason left KOMP last fall after a falling out with her husband and had returned to her hometown of Harrisonburg, VA to temporarily stay with her parents.Brittney”s final Twitter post was on Tuesday, Jan. 22 — a photo taken inside the terminal of McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas as she returned to Las Vegas to interview for a radio job and to celebrate her 38th birthday with friends.Brittney was fixture in Charlotte long before the bright lights and future husband lured her to Vegas. Panther”s paved the way but Charlotte”s Uptown Nightlife was never really the same without her wit and smile.She was one of a handful of people besides a close group in CMPD crowd who know CP”s true identity.Divorce hit Brittney hard but in her typical style she brushed it off with humor.I searched a dozen DMs looking for clues and I swear she seemed to be in a good place. The holidays rolled on and she seemed resilient as ever, a couple days of radio silence here and there and she”d surface. Full of hopes and dreams and sarcasm.Frankly I had concerns but nothing seemed out of place.Of course there”s a huge Elephant in the Room. 37 year old vibrant lives don”t just flame out un-expectantly overnight without reason. I”m not going to guess or speculate. I still stunned and heartbroken.What I will say is that she had everything to live for and she knew it. She wasn”t a “user” as far as I know. But I”ve lost 3 friends in the last two years due to accidental overdoses. Robbie, Jamie and Karl all were smart sober and demon free. They were talented and funny like Brittney and their deaths still make not an ounce of sense.Cedar Update: Over the past many days I”ve had several sad conversations with friends of Brittney and have to accept that she did indeed kill herself. I”m beyond grief stricken and heartbroken and have spent hours wondering if there wasn”t something I could have done. Even her closest friends are stunned. More after today”s celebration of life service.

So sad to hear about Brittney Cason. Can you confirm that it was a suicide? I read that Brittney Cason hanged herself? That's so out of the ordinary, especially for women.

I'm going to doubt the suicide story for now, though I'm inclined to think accidental overdose. But we seldom know the struggles people deal with inside.

So my two questions I have in regards to her and this sad time is was it definitely suicide and how long had she been separated from her husband?

Hanging is not out of the ordinary for female suicides. Fairly recently fashion designer Kate Spade, Detroit meteorologist Jessica Starr both killed themselves that way.Sometimes, depression can be masked by the use of social media to show carefully curated images of amazing travel locations and event association. It rarely shows the day-to-day struggles, sadness and heartbreaks.

She did not hang herself. Gossip and speculation are tasteless and show only morbid curiosity instead of compassion and caring.

Brittney Cason got divorced from Mark Seidel in December, 2018. It was not contested. It was finalized the day after Christmas.

The previous comment is correct. Her husband asked for a divorce in October of 2018 and the two parties filed jointly in Nevada with neither party contesting the divorce.

Does anyone know whether she had the interview with Beasley Broadcasting for which she flew back to Las Vegas? What was the outcome of it?
