She won countless crowns & trophies after competing on the pageant circuit her entire life. Her highly acclaimed talent as a contortionist had already led to professional touring job offers, and she had recently been selected to be a cheerleader at her high school next fall.

Kailia also had a love for aviation that was taking her to possible get her flying license and eventually become a pilot. She will be sorely missed. May she rest in peace.” her family told TMZ.

Posey starred as a child actress in the TLC reality show from 2009 until 2013. She revealed on Instagram in January that she would compete as Miss Washington Teen USA in February.
