The fashion maven, 55, was found just after 10 a.m. on June 5 hanging with a scarf around her neck in the family's New York City home.

As Radar reported, Kate left behind a note for her husband, Andy, 55, and their 13-year-old girl, Frances, who was at school when her mom took her own life.

“She didn’t say why she did it,” a police source said of Kate's final message.

However, she reportedly told her daughter not to blame herself for the suicide.
